Brass snare drum with Sonic Saver hoops for perfect mix of warmth and focus

The Mapex Black Panther Metallion seamed brass snare offers the go-to metal snare sound, centering the groove in the middle of the mix. Brass has been used for snare drums longer than any other alloy, making its clear, warm tone the industry standard. The Metallion meets that standard, creating focused sound with just the right amount of sensitive bite.

The Metallion 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.
