Prog-Rock perfection at your four-four fingertips. A premium appointed Mapex snare drum that is full of detail and superior quality. Every aspect of this snare drum from size, shape, tonewood and hardware has been meticulously engineered to work in harmony with one another. One for the most serious of rhythm masters out there.

Master of Tone and Rhythm

The Mapex Craig Bundell Signature Snare, known as 'The Machine' has been crafted by Mapex with Craig's high-end specs right down to every detail. A formidable snare, with Craig looking for perfect versatility, balanced tone, and stable performance.

Mapex Design Lab Craig Blundell Signature 'The Machine' Snare Drum Features:

  • Precisely Engineered Snare to Craig Blundells Specs
  • Premium Design and Build Quality
  • Perfect Balanced Output thanks to the Matching Walnut and Maple Construction
  • Fine Details including Hi-Tech Trick throw-off and Puresound 'Equaliser' snare wires
  • Beautiful Aesthetics including black nickel hardware and offset tube lugs

True Balanced Tone

Offering a fully-rounded snare sound. The Machine from Mapex delivers a truly versatile and warm voice. From its traditional 14 x 5.5" size, and depending on how you tune the snare, you can get a real crisp punch from the high-end or resonating fatness from the low end. The pairing of Walnut and Maple really helps develop the all-round capability of the Craig Blundell Signature Snare.

Premium Snare Appointments

This Mapex Machine is fully-loaded with perfect features, such as the 45-degree bearing edges, which lets the Mapex Craig Blundell Snare omit a balanced output at your preferred tuning. Blundell opts for the Puresound 'Equaliser' 16-strand snare wire design which really pulls out the rich overtone of the Mapex's shell.

Furthermore, the Mapex Design Lab Craig Blundell Signature Snare arrives with Sonic Saver hoops, which are designed to create lees stick wear and be gentler to those drumming hands. The Trick throw-off offers another high-quality appointment on this Mapex Signature Snare.

Drumming Details

The Mapex Craig Blundell Snare Drum comes with custom design Aquarian heads, black nickel hardware and offset tube lugs, completing the perfectly constructed offering from those clever lab coats at Mapex.
