      Some jobs call for heavy-duty equipment.

      The Sledgehammer Snare Drum bludgeons its way through the din with extreme volume and a distinct rounded tone. It features a 1.2mm hand-hammered brass shell that measures 14" x 6-1/2" with a traditional 45° bearing edge.

      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.

        Comments about Mapex Black Panther Sledgehammer Snare Drum:

        This thing rules! The heavy duty brass shell gives it such a nice attack and hint of ring. Super loud if you need it to be. The sledgehammer is hands down the best snare i have ever played so far. I like the fact that you can adjust the snares from both sides. Rim shots cut real nice. It is definitely worth checking out.

        Comments about Mapex Black Panther Sledgehammer Snare Drum:

        The best snare drum I have played. Its very sensative and the name doesn't do it justice. I took it to practise last night and another drummer was there, he played it...I listened and man is it a fantastic drum.Whatever music you play this will cope...GET ONE!!!
