Aluminum snare drum with 2.0 mm shell for clear articulation and subtlety

The Mapex Black Panther Atomizer has a real mature feel, capturing every articulate nuance with precision and subtlety. The 2.0 mm seamless aluminum shell brightens up the groove while keeping a deep character to the sound.

The Atomizer is fitted with Mapex's proprietary Sonic Saver hoops, a middle ground between triple-flange and die-cast. They’re made from steel that’s folded inward for a round shape instead of a flat flange. Sonic Savers control the tone for a drier sound than triple-flange, but they don’t deaden the drum the way die-cast hoops can. They also reduce wear on the drum and sticks. The result is a focused snare with clean, punchy rim shots every time.
