MAPEX Ralph Peterson Signature Snare

To commemorate 30-year relationship with long-time artist Ralph Peterson, MAPEX started working with him on building a snare drum tailored to his playing style—relentless, fearless, and unstoppable. Merely two weeks before the drum was completed, his passing came suddenly, making the release of this Onyx drum a difficult call to make. After reaching out to Ralph’s family and manager, it is believed that moving forward would be what Ralph would have wanted and one of the best ways to preserve and continue Ralph’s legacy. “Onward and upward”
