Armory Trade In

THE TRADE-IN OPTION: Don't like steel snares or maybe you already have one? No problem.


You'll have TWO WEEKS after your Armory kit purchase to test out the TOMAHAWK and see whether you want to keep it. If you don't, simply trade it in directly with Mapex for one of the other four Armory Snare drums shown below. No Charge.

The TOMAHAWK snare (right) comes standard with ALL Armory Shell Packs. Made with a 1mm steel shell, this 14" x 5.5" snare has penetrating accuracy and long range projection. The 45 degree bearing edge creates a devestating rim shot of foucused power. Its sound is bright, focused, and loud.
