The Mapex Black Panther Predator copper snare drum is the choice for drummers who need an especially dark metal sound. The Predator brings a smoky, powerful sense to any musical situation. The copper shell produces a profound and weighty fundamental roar with mid-low range tone.

The Predator 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.
