Mapex

Description

The Mapex Black Panther Solidus maple snare drum produces the deepest sound with serious projection and dry character. The Solidus is unshakable. This drum is a substantial instrument, with an 11 mm shell of 100% maple, producing a crack that has profound character, ripping through the music with a bottomless foundation.

The Solidus 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.
