Description

The 'Wraith' Brass 14 x 6" Snare is one of Mapex's new wave of their acclaimed Black Panther range of snare drums. One of a new selection of Artist signature models, these snares harness the character and unique sounds of their signature artists and offer you the opportunity to add some of that sound to your setup.
The 'Wraith' is the wondrous result of the union between Mapex and drummer Matt Halpern of the band Periphery and as you might well imagine, its a hell of a screamer. The Wraith derives its explosive, dry sound from its 1.2mm thick vented brass shell that features nine vents that let the drum breathe. Although it has a bone-splintering attack, the tone of this drum has an underlying warmth and a meaty punch. This versatile and complex tonal mix means that this snare doesn't just scream - it can also perform brilliantly at lower volumes, producing whispering ghost-notes and picking up on your subtle intricacies. 
This awesome snare takes good advantage of its Black Panther series status and utilises many of the ranges awesome professional features; the Black Panther cylinder-drive strainer uses a self-lubricating bearing for smooth motion and even snare tension and an adjustment dial allows you to fully-customise the motion of the strainer. Mapex Sonic Saver hoops bridge the sonic gap between flanged hoops and a die-cast hoops and the drum is kitted out with Matt's prefered snare wires and drum heads - a personal touch further enhanced by the inclusion of a personally signed picture booklet by the artist himself.
