nobody can say than one is better than the other one . both are good , they are just different.

the pearl is warmer , and more focused
the mapex more resonant , with a stronger fundamental tone.

one cool thing is to have two snare drums , one with triple flanged hoops and the other with die cast hoops , so that you can exchange the hoops between the snare drums so that you have 4 diferent sound with just two snare drums or even more , for example : batter side die cast and bottom : triple flanged (like stewart copeland)

the mapex snare is unique, because birdseye figure happens not so commonly
id say (though its way too late) you shouldve gone for the mapex

I vote for the Pearl. The Omar Hakim has an amazing cross stick sound.

its a win win both are great high quality snares... the hoops might sway me toward the mapex... though I see alot of the omar snares out there they seem to be real popular...you really cant loose which ever you pick.......

they're both great snares. i've played the pearl. and in person the natural finish looks like dog's fur. just saying.
