Mapex wants drummers to spend less time tuning and be able to play more. The result of that mission is the latest innovation from Mapex: The SONIClear™ bearing edge, which allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range.

Black Panther series snares drums were created through extensive teamwork between Mapex and their most respected artists. The Blade is a result of careful attention to detail and sound. Created from a 1mm steel shell, this drum comes with 45-degree bearing edges which delivers a crisp attack and full tone throughout multiple tuning ranges. Drum heads are able to fully resonate all the way to their edges, producing greater sensitivity that ultimately delivers greater dynamics and more pronounced ghost notes. Mapex's Sonic Saver hoops bring the focus and rim shot of a die-cast hoop and the breathiness of a flanged hoop. Finished with a Brushed Nickel, this drum looks far more expensive than it is and is a great sounding steel snare drum for the money. 

This particular snare is named "Blade" for it's uncanny ability to cut through anything. The thick 1mm steel shell delivers a razor-sharp tone with a crisp attack, and extended resonance. The traditional 45 degree bearing edge allows the heads to fully resonate all the way to their edges, producing greater sensitivity that ultimately delivers softer dynamics and more pronounced ghost notes. The moderate 14" x 5.5" size is extremely versatile, lending itself to a wide range of musical applications. The unique shape of the Mapex Sonic Saver Hoops greatly reduces wear and tear to sticks. This also helps reduce the strain and fatigue on your arms over prolonged periods of play.
