The full-bodied, versatile Mapex Black Widow Snare Drum boasts extreme sensitivity and dark, dry tone. It measures 14" x 5" and has a 5.1mm maple shell and a 5:5 bearing edge (a 45°edge rounded on the outside).
The Black Panther snare drum's handmade and hand-finished shell is complemented by 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.
Mapex Sonic Saver Hoop
The Sonic Saver Hoop bridges the gap between flanged drum 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 rim shot.
The Mapex 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's stainless steel snare wires deliver crisp, lively action. Mapex tops the Black Panther snare with premium Remo drumheads, including a coated Remo Ambassador batter head.

Gotta say, the snare lives up to its description. What I enjoy most is its full bodied tone, which I did not have with my Saturn 5.5X14 snare. Somehow this drum at a 5" depth delivers the goods. Looks real classy with its gunmetal hardware. The hoops are great too, gives a thick rim click and feels good on the sticks. The drum is versatile too, jazz, rock, funk. When you attack the edge it has a nice pang sound. Lovely drum.
