What a snare drum can be when you think a bit outsdide the box!

The Mapex Black Panther Velvetone highlights what a snare drum can be when you think a bit outsdide the box. Using a construction of Maple, Walnut and Maple this 8.1mm shells produces a variety of tones from drak, smooth and subtle to bright, edgey and in your face.

The Mapex exclusive Sonic Saver hoop redefines what you know about cross sticking and rim shots. The cool inward curve of the hoop reduces the amount of shock and punishment to your hands.

Tuning and snare wire adjustments are simplified by the new Mapex piston style strainer and butt plate. Both are notched to increase the accuarcy and eliminate any possibility of de tuning. Black Panther Velvetone, this drum is truly music to your ears!

Comments about Mapex Black Panther Velvetone 14" X 5.5" Walnut And Maple Shell Snare:

Tuned Low or High this snare sounds great. It is visually stunning. The name "Velvetone" describes it perfectly. This is one of those if you had to have one snare to do it all this would be the one. Tuned low it is velvety smooth. Tuned high it has nice crack with little "ring". Great snare, Mapex has outdone themselves.
