American drum company Mapex have been gradually building a name for themselves as the manufacturers of some of the highest quality drums and can now deservedly be called one of the market leaders of the modern age. A large part of their reputation was built on the popularity of their now legendary Black Panther snare drums.

Originally only a single type of drum, Mapex have taken the idea and methodology behind the original Black Panthers and brought it to a whole range of styles. There is now a Black Panther for every drummer no matter what style they play.

Mapex Black Panther’s are professional quality snare drums but come in at an impressively competitive price. They can often withstand comparison to competitors professional ranges that are twice the price. Ideal for drummers that need a snare drum that will really do the job on stage and in the studio but just can’t justify spending £600-£1000 or more on classic snare drums. The fact that many top drummer’s signature snare drums are included in the Black Panther range is testament to it’s pro level quality.

Built to be played hard and loud, this bad boy features an extra thick shell, rounded bearing edges and a deep snare bed for a thick, fat sound. This is a heavyweight snare drum, notable for it’s sheer size. Monster dimensions and an ultra thick shell, you will not get a much bigger snare drum anywhere.

Possessing a mix of fury and deadly precision, this drum delivers an intense, dark punch when tuned low and an explosive pop when cranked high. Who knew you could rock out on something so small? With it’s unique tattoo style, designed finish this drum looks as good as it sounds.

  • Thin hybrid maple and walnut shell.
  • Unique design finish
  • Works as main snare or auxiliary snare
  • Miniature 12″x5.5″ dimensions
  • The SONIClear™ bearing edge
  • Remo Drum Heads
