A relatively small snare with plenty of power and subtlety.
Classic in style and performance, this uniquely sized Mapex Black Panther Cherry Bomb Snare Drum is as distinctive to the ear as it is to the eye. It features a 5.1mm cherry wood shell.
Each Mapex snare drum features handbuilt and hand-finished Black Panther shells and completely redesigned hardware. From the fresh, sculpted lug design to the smart new badge, Black Panther snares are now more beautiful than ever.
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 snare drum 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 Cherry Bomb Snare Drum:
Wow, I got this snare today and it is really impressive. It has a really powerful crack with a short decay. Check out the sound clips in Youtube.com to hear for yourself, I am not sure how it fits in with the sound of my Tama Starclassic maple set but it is definately a keeper. I was a little worried about the finish especially since it is made in China, but it looks really good. It has a flawless glossy cherry finish. I only wish it had a unique badge identifying it as a Cherry Bomb snare instead of the generic Black Panther badge. The shell is made of Cherry. Visually it is on the thin side.I am not sure of the number of plys but I would guess it is about 5 mm in total. The throw off is very unique and works well. The only thing I don't care for is the lugs. In my opinion they are not as refined as the Tama and Pearl Lugs so I deducted 1 star. For example I wasn't able to finger tight them so I had to guess at the starting position using a drum key. Having a drum dial was helpful in this situation. Definately check it out. If Sonor would have made this it would probably cost $1,000! Hopefully another company comes out with a cherry snare so we have something to benchmark it against.
