12" walnut snare drum with dry, aggressive bite and surprisingly dark tone

The new Mapex Black Panther Design Lab Warbird snare drum is an optimized version of the original Black Panther model, with the unique 12” diameter and 100% walnut shell. This updated version still has a sharp and aggressive attack, with an amazing bite. The new staggered lug design adds an enormously wide tuning range and the Puresound P1216 snare wires give unparalleled sensitivity, with a dark, punchy and explosive sound. It's great as an accent drum, but also makes an intriguing option as a main snare for drummers who want to experiment with quick backbeats. This Warbird 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. Feel the difference of an authentic Black Panther snare. Order now.
