Brass snare drum with thick 1.2 mm hammered shell for powerful metal tone

The Mapex Black Panther Persuader hammered brass snare drum produces the deep and dry metal sound that built the Black Panther reputation. The Persuader leads with an authoritative darkness. The hammered brass shell dispenses a formidable burst into the music with undeniable punch.

The Persuader 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.
