Made with a 1mm stainless steel shell, the Armory Series Tomahawk Snare from Mapex has penetrating accuracy and long range projection. The focused power of its rimshot is resonant. The steel shell features a rounded 45-degree bearing edge for focused brightness with plenty of volume.

The shell is fitted with a piston strainer and vertical throw-off that enable quick, smooth operation and prevent snare wire tension changes during play. The precision tooled solid steel Armory Tube Lugs deliver greater tuning accuracy and shell stability while giving the drum an elegant yet modern appearance. The shell also offers a black chrome finish.

Several tuning lugs are hard to turn....not machined properly, makes for hard tuning....the snare drum came with a kit I bought.....Not impressed...Now I have to buy another snare!

Average quality build with the only good feature being tube lugs. I found this drum to be not very loud for a metal snare and worked well as a replacement snare with a (poplar) Sonor Martini Kit that came with a 12" snare. It was a good match in that application. Otherwise it was average. On the negative side I found the black finish marked easily and was hard to clean spoiling the appearance of a custom drum. Score 4/10
