This listing is for a Mapex Saturn 14x5.5” Snare Drum in Red Burst Sparkle that’s in virtually brand new condition (with perhaps only a spec of rust on the bottom hoop).
These snare drums are considered high-end recording snare drums and for good reason. Starting with the thin ply maple-walnut shells, low mass lugs, and 2.3mm power hoops, these drums convey power, tone, and balance with a regal flare. The dual tuning system enables a balanced tone that’s unmatched, while the 20 low mass lugs are imperative to the balance of tuning. The shell itself produces a wide, and EXTREMELY full range and dynamic snare drum sound.
The lacquered red burst sparkle shell commands immediate attention, and promotes the regal sound that one is about to hear.
