The Mapex Black Panther Wasp is the perfect accent and loop snare drum for adding effects and bright color in the groove. Made from a seamed 1 mm steel shell, the Wasp produces a tight "sting" to accent the backbeat with small-diameter precision. Sonic Saver hoops focus the steel tone for a dry tightness that puts a pointy snap on the groove. It can be mounted on a stand or hex rod.

Mapex's proprietary Sonic Saver hoops are 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 snare with clean, punchy rim shots every time.
