This thing has a lot of body to the sound. Different heads yield different results quite pleasingly! I might buy a second one for different styles of music, but the one I have is excellent. It's hard to go wrong with the quality of Mapex.

Unbelievable value. The drum looks and sounds fantastic irrespective of price. Replaced the stock heads with Evans ST and cloudy batter, tuned it up and now it just pops. Nice round fat sound for a standard depth snare. AND Cascio service was top notch. Best price, free shipping. Ordered Wednesday night, arrived midday on Friday at my home in central KY. Both Mapex and Cascio are going to get a second look from me the next time I gear up!
I just got the 8 x 14 model of this snare and I have to say the finish is gorgeous. The light black showing the wood grain is lovely. However after replacing the heads and snare wires I was getting an awful buzz and after investigating figured out that the reason was that this snare had no snare beds cut into the shell. customer service was fantastic. Sent out a return label and have promised to ship another drum to borrow. I will re-write this review if the new drum shows up in better condition.
