About Delivery

A killer snare drum by Mapex, this Mapex Black Panther Design Lab Equinox 14 x 5" snare drum is perfectly crafted for professional use and produces a sound that seems to bridge the gap between wood and metal snare drums. It possesses the warmer qualities and overtones of Maple, but the harder shell combined with the edge reinforcement gives a boost in the 1-3kHz range which gives this snare a steel-like nature. The result is a rich, crisp and cutting snare that neatly cuts through bands and orchestras to clearly and authoritatively define the rhythm. The great thing is, unlike steel snares, the Maple still kicks out a rich, woody thump which makes this snare take up more sonic space.

As is universal with Mapex drums, this snare takes advantage of SONIClear Bearing Edges. This design helps the drum heads to sit flatter on the shells for a stronger, deeper fundamental pitch and easier tuning. This is a great boon for gigging drummers who need quick, easy and consistent tuning night after night. Every component of this snare has been carefully selected for the best accumulated sound as possible. Utilising Puresound Custom Series 16-Strand wires, this snare offers the perfect balance between the noise and tone of the shell and the noise of the snares. This makes for a surprisingly smooth sound, coupled with the cutting nature of this snare as a whole. This is combined with a self-lubricating bearing system to ensure smooth operation when engaging/disengaging the snares.

Finished in a stylish matte black, this snare has an understated but attractive look that allows its awesome sound to revel in the limelight.
