The 14" x 6" 1.2mm brass shell of the Mapex Wraith Snare provides the foundation for every bone shattering rim shot. The 9 vents in the shell bring a touch of dryness to the overall sound with increased response and clarity. Matched to the shell is the Black Panther 45 bearing edge making all your quiet strokes present even at a whisper. This drum will haunt you from beyond the gig.

The snare is also fitted with Sonic Saver hoops that reduce dramatically stick wear and enhance resonance. Additionally, a cylinder-drive strainer provides smooth adjustment by way of a self-lubricating bearing and "mirco-lock" technology.

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.

Comments about Mapex Wraith Matt Halpern Artist Inspired Black Panther Snare Drum:

I really had no previous experience with Mapex before, and didn't even realize that the snare I was trying out on a kit at a drum shop, was this Wraith snare. It is as advertised- It's Explosive. And quite warm. It has a good amount of bottom-end which really supports the attack that we all like. I was impressed with it's overall sensitivity to head changes. Personally I preferred the Coated CS head the most, second the Coated Ambassador X (12ml thick). The regular Coated Ambassador loved to be cranked up high for jazz and it was surprisingly articulate and inspiring to play. My least favorite head was the one it came with, the Evans heavy hitter, though it really does add it's own dominating character to the drum. I specifically purchased this to fulfill the role in a blues band that needs a meaty sound on some tunes and penetrating rimshots on others. The Wraith does it all. My only negative is I think they overpriced it. They should've sold for a hundred less. I think alot of people might not want to take the chance for the current seeing price. I was very close to just getting a Black Beauty for a bit more. But-- this Wraith has a thicker more versatile sound for my liking. And I had borrowed a Black Beauty from a friend and played it every day in my studio for 8 months- just before this purchase.
