Maple/mahogany hybrid snare drum with balanced articulation and powerful low end

Made in the Black Panther Design Lab, the Mapex Versatus snare drum features a hybrid maple/mahogany shell crafted for just the right amount of low end, articulation and punch. A single SAS reinforcement ring is built into the batter side only, deepening the tone while keeping the resonant side thinner for higher sensitivity. Combined with the rounded SONIClear bearing edges and proprietary hoops, the result is a perfect balance of strength, functionality, feel and beauty, for drummers in all playing situations.

This Versatus is fitted with Mapex's proprietary Sonic Saver hoops, 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 focused snare with clean, punchy rim shots every time.


  • 14" mahogany/maple snare drum from the Black Panther Design Lab
  • Sonic Saver hoops are rounded to combine the benefits of triple-flange and die-cast
  • Brushed black hardware and distinctive panther silhouette badge
  • Hoops and mahogany/maple shell are perfect combination for low-end power and articulation
  • Fitted with PureSound snare wires and Remo heads
