After a decade of success, Mapex ushers in a new era of the legendary Black Panther by introducing a new line-up of fourteen snare drum models, each with its own distinctive personality.

Working closely with Mapex's drum design team, a panel of international Mapex Artists shared its advice and expertise on everything from shell materials and functionality, to sizes to aesthetics.

The result is a collection of unique Black Panther Snare Drums that look fantastic and sound even better. Each drum features hand built and hand finished Black Panther shells and completely redesigned hardware.

All New Appointments From the newly sculpted lug design to the smart new badge, Black Panther Snare drums are now more beautiful than ever.

Cylinder-Drive Strainer The all new cylinder-drive strainer uses a more self-lubricating bearing to ensure smooth operation while providing precise control of the snare tension.

Premium Snare Wires All Black Panther Snare Drums feature stainless steel snare wires for crisp, lively action.

Sonic Saver Hoops The all new Mapex Sonic Saver Hoop bridges the gap between flanged hoops and die cast hoops. The unique shaping process creates a profile that reduces wear and tear to both sticks and hands while dramatically enhancing the response and feel of every rimshot.

The Sonic Saver is significantly lighter than a conventional die cast hoop, it won't choke the shell?s vibration. The result is a more natural percussive sound with much greater resonance.

All-New Throwoff Mapex's new piston-style throw-off is incredibly smooth and requires minimal effort to operate. The adjustment dial employs "micro-lock" technology that provides a tactile "click" as it's turned, allowing precise control.

Heads by Remo Black Panther snare come with premium Remo drum heads, including a coated ambassador batter head.
