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 Stinger Snare Drum:
Bought this thing kind of on a whim and absolutely love it. I'm a big fan of steel/metal snares as I like to tune the snot out of them and make them super high or sometimes drop them really low and make them early 70's bonky. Compared to my main snare the Stinger offers a wonderfully different texture and pitch. This is clearly designed to be a side snare and not really a main snare as it certainly cuts like a knife but it doesn't have massive projection. Mapex made a wonderful steel snare with their Stinger and it's nice and small with its only ten inch footprint. Fits perfectly off to the side of my high hat. It's extremely well built and surprisingly heavy for such a tiny drum with a beefy throw and lugs. It's practically built like a tank and weighs far more than many full-size wood snares I've owned. The mirror/chrome finish is just icing on the cake. Any finish would have worked but shiny chrome is pretty nice to look at. Goes really well with my Tama Rockstar Misty Chrome kit. HIGHLY recommended.
