Overview

The Mapex Phat Bob Snare Drum is built to be played hard and loud. The Black Panther snare is armed with an extra thick 12mm maple shell, rounded bearing edges, and a deep snare bed for a thick, fat sound.

The Mapex snare drum boasts handbuilt and hand-finished Black Panther drum shells and 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 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.

Just WOW.

By Blake

from Burleson, TX

I tried this snare out, and I was absolutely blown away. This snare matches if not exceeds my friend's Truth custom snare which cost him almost $1000 dollars. This snare can have a nice fat sound tuned loose, or if you get the heads on the tighter side, you get the greatest crack I have ever heard in a snare. Recording or otherwise. Without mics this thing exceeded every expectation, and now I can't wait to take one into the studio! If you are in the market for a new snare, and you are looking for a change from a steel snare, or just want another wooden snare, look no further than this one. I tried out many snares before reaching this one, and none surpassed it.
