Compact side snare with Sonic Saver hoops for refined tone and snappy rim shots

The Mapex Black Panther Wasp is the perfect accent and loop snare drum for adding effects and bright color in the groove. Made from a seamed 1 mm steel shell, the Wasp produces a tight "sting" to accent the backbeat with small-diameter precision. Sonic Saver hoops focus the steel tone for a dry tightness that puts a pointy snap on the groove. It can be mounted on a stand or hex rod.

Mapex's proprietary Sonic Saver hoops are a middle ground between triple-flange and die-cast. They’re made from steel that’s folded inward for a round shape instead of a flat flange. Sonic Savers control the tone for a drier sound than triple-flange, but they don’t deaden the drum the way die-cast hoops can. They also reduce wear on the drum and sticks. The result is a snare with clean, punchy rim shots every time.


  • 10x5.5" steel accent snare drum from the prized Black Panther series
  • Sonic Saver hoops are rounded to combine the benefits of triple-flange and die-cast
  • Chrome hardware and distinctive panther silhouette badge
  • Hoops, small diameter and steel shell combine for a tight, snappy response
  • Can be mounted on snare stand or hex rod
