Why choose maple?
The beauty of the maple snare shell is twofold: you get the snap and projection you need to really cut through a live or studio mix, while getting enough tonal balance to achieve a full sound. The 5.5" x 14" 6-ply MCX 1455S/C Masters Custom Maple Snare provides the kind of classic sound you want, but still lets you make yourself heard in the midst of a loud band.
Advantages of using die-cast hoops
While it's important that your hoops are strong and resilient enough to stay true and tune properly, their contribution to a drum's sound shouldn't be overlooked. Die-cast hoops keep their shape more consistently than do flanged hoops, since die-cast hoops are "born" round. What's more, the tension rods make just the right contact with a die-cast hoop for more precise tuning. You'll get better resonance, a cleaner attack, and bigger-sounding rim shots with die-cast hoops, too.
