OVERVIEW

This Mapex Black Panther Phantom snare drum, with its unique hybrid shell, possesses incredible sensitivity that creates a ghostly quality. Its 5.1mm shell is constructed from two exterior 1.7mm birch plies and one interior 1.7mm walnut ply.

The snare drum features handbuilt and hand-finished Black Panther drum shells and completely redesigned hardware. From the fresh, sculpted lug design to the smart new badge, Mapex Black Panther snare drums are now more beautiful than ever.

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 snare drum features stainless steel snare wires for crisp, lively action and premium Remo drum heads, including a coated Ambassador batter head.

Haunt your audience with the incredible tone and professional features of The Phantom.

Comments about Mapex Black Panther Phantom Snare Drum:

I'm always searching for a good snare with a deep sound but in a compact shell. A very difficult task, no? I always find more comfortable playing with 12" or 13" inch snares. Weirdly enough, this little snare sounds excellent tuned low, medium or high, something that you don't find in snares of this size. I did change the heads to evans genera dry and hazy 300 and puresound snare wires. The stock Remo heads and premium wires are very good, but this is a matter of personal preference as I find the genera dry and tight sound more to my taste. This one is a keeper! just make sure to have some lubricant for the lugs as they come very dry and you will not be able to finger-tight them when tuning or changing heads. By the way, this snare, being a 12" is not that loud and will be an excellent choice for smaller gigs.
