After a decade of success, Mapex ushers in a new era of the legendary Black Panther by introducing a new line-up of snare drum models, each with its own distinctive personality. Mapex have improved the hoops on the range with their "sonic saver" hoop design. This bridges the gap between flanged and die-cast hoops with their rounded shape reducing wear on sticks whilst retaining the ability to produce an easy and clear rimshot.
A new throwoff is easy and smooth to operate and the adjustment dial has micro-lock technology which allows to adjust tension silently with a tactile "click" proving feedback so you can make highly-accurate adjustments. The drums feature either sculpted shield-style or forged tube-style lugs, and new and improved finishes compared to older models.
The Black Panther Retrosonic model depicted here deploys an 8.1mm Walnut shell, there are several new bearing edge profiles, and the cherry on the cake is a new die-cast, chrome-plated Black Panther badge. Check out the Mapex Black Panther Snare Drum range now at the Nevada Music Warehouse ...
