Mapex's Black Panther range offers up fourteen unique and eclectically-styled snare drum models from which any drummer will find his ideal sound. Featuring the same quality design elements that made the original Black Panther a legend, 'The Blade' is a quality 14 x 5.5 steel shelled snare suitably monikered after its cutting, steely strikes. It possesses a crystalline attack guaranteed to cut through any loud mix.
The Blade is hand-crafted from 1mm rolled steel with a 45-degree bearing edge that serves up a traditional slice of bright metallic sound with a broad tuning range and a crisp and articulate attack. It is equipped with a smooth cylinder-drive strainer that uses a self-lubricating bearing that aides the precision control of the snare-wire tension. The snare wires are made from stainless steel and are crisp and lively. Mapex's Sonic Saver Hoop features a rounded-over edge that enhances the feel and attack of your rimshots, whilst reducing wear on your sticks and fatigue in your hands and wrists. What's more, their significantly decreased weight helps to enhance the resonance of the drum and bring out its natural percussive sound.
