Overview

This Mapex Black Panther Blaster snare drum is sure to get your audience's attention. For an ear-shattering loud and aggressive response, tune this drum to a slightly higher pitch-just be sure to warn everyone around you first. The Mapex snare features an 8.5mm shell constructed from a 5.1mm maple shell and 3.4mm walnut reinforcing rings.

Each Black Panther Blaster drum features handbuilt and hand-finished Black Panther shells and completely redesigned hardware. From the fresh, sculpted lug design to the smart badge, Black Panther snares 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 Blaster snare features stainless steel snare wires for crisp, lively action, and premium Remo drum heads, including a coated Ambassador batter head.

Features
  • Mapex snare drum size: 13" x 7"
  • Handbuilt and hand-finished Black Panther shell
  • Cylinder-drive strainer
  • Piston-style throw-off
  • Sonic Saver hoops
  • Premium steel snare wires

      Comments about Mapex Black Panther Blaster Snare Drum:

      This snare is amazing. I was looking for something with a unique, yet complex sound, This Blaster is rich in tone, full, and it can be tuned high and give that tight crack without much over tone. I use mine with an Evans hybrid snare batter.

      This snare is amazing!

      Comments about Mapex Black Panther Blaster Snare Drum:

      My church picked up this snare a couple months back for our drum set and i was blown away. This is the best sounding snare i have ever played. i have a ludwig black beauty snare drum that cost around 700 dollars and this snare drum blows it out of the water! After playing this snare quite a few times, i knew I had to have it and I bought one for myself. I recommend that you tune it really high for the best sound. This snare is super-sensitive and cuts through the mix. Best snare ever!!!

      THE BEST SNARE I HAVE EVER PLAYED!!!!!

      By Dan

      from Souderton, PA

      Comments about Mapex Black Panther Blaster Snare Drum:

      This snare is amazing! Once you learn how to tune both stringers to your needs for me its higher pitched, this thing sings. I cannot stop playing it. I waited more then 1 month for it and got it after new years. It was well worth the wait. I put on a Black Suede Emperor tuned real high and this thing cracks through any sound. It's finish is just gorgeous as well from the black hardware to the fade design. Buy this snare! For the price it is the best thing you will get, it sounds like a professional snare drum!!!!
