The Mapex 5.5 x 14-inch Armory Dillinger Snare Drum features an 8-ply maple shell that is bright in tone, well-balanced across the entire dynamic spectrum, and speaks incredibly easily. The sound of the shell opens up at the merest touch of a finger - even if you breathe on it too hard.
The SONIClear 45-degree bearing edge is fully rounded on the outside, designed to keep the head from sitting too high like they do on older, thinner bearing edges. This results in more resonance from the shell, giving you a clearer tone with each hit. The sound is fuller and bigger than it would be otherwise. With a SONIClear bearing edge the head is also able to vibrate more freely, and that means longer decays and the elimination of dead sounds. It's also far easier to tune a drum with a head that sits well on the bearing edge, so you don't need to have tuned drums for years to get yours to sound great.
Tube-like lugs contact the shell as little as possible to further increase its resonance, and 2.3mm Power Hoops keep your sticks from getting eaten too quickly as they lock the drum's tension down. 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 Dillinger is energetic and very crisp, with the warmth and dryness that only a wooden shell can provide.
