Mapex Black Panther hardware
The cylinder-drive strainer uses a self-lubricating bearing to ensure smooth operation while providing minute control of the snare tension. Mapex's piston-style throw-off is incredibly smooth and requires minimal effort to operate, and the adjustment dial employs micro-lock technology that provides a tactile click as it's turned, allowing precise control.
Sonic Saver Hoop
The Sonic Saver Hoop bridges the gap between flanged hoops and die cast hoops. A unique shaping process creates a profile that reduces wear and tear to both sticks and hands while dramatically enhancing the response and feel of every rimshot.
The Sonic Saver is significantly lighter than a conventional die-cast hoop, so it won't choke the shell's vibration. The result is a more natural percussive sound with much greater resonance.
This Mapex Black Panther Blaster snare features stainless steel snare wires for crisp, lively action, and premium Remo drum heads, including a coated Ambassador batter head.

Comments about Mapex Black Panther Blaster Snare Drum:
Incredible snare for a rock drummer. I took my time and tuned and tightened this drum until it had exactly the sound I was looking for and it paid off big time. The attack and pop from this drum is remarkable. The tactile feel is excellent. My double strokes and buzz rolls feel so creamy and controlled. A word of warning...this drum is for rock...the heavier the better. It is loud and very assertive. It would destroy a jazz gig and would be way too overbearing for a dance band situation. But if you are playing rock music and are looking for a backbeat with some real balls, this is your snare. My son plays speed metal and this snare sounds insane when he lays into it with his blast beats.
