The Armory range from American drum makers Mapex are an exciting range of drum kits, snare drums and hardware. Aimed at the semi pro player, Armory offer a lot of professional features at a competitive price point.

Armory snare drums are the little brothers of Mapex’s legendary Black Panther snare drums. Following the same philosophy as the Black Panther range, the Armory range attempts to offer a drum for every style of music but at a lower price. You’ll struggle to find a better range of snare drums under £200.

The pop and crack of this Maple/Walnut hybrid shell cuts deep with each stroke.  ‘The Sabre’ will settle any disputes as to who keeps the best time in the band.
The SONIClear™ Bearing Edge (standard on all Armory wood shell models) allows all drumheads to sit flat and tune effortlessly and respond with a stronger fundamental pitch. The precision tooled solid steel Armory Tube Lugs deliver greater tuning accuracy and shell stability while giving the drum an elegant yet modern appearance.
