What We Think

Designed in tandem with Lamb of God’s Chris Adler, the Mapex Black Panther Warbird snare drum delivers a one-two knockout punch of power and precision with every stroke. This snare features a 6-ply hybrid shell construction of Maple and Walnut. Maple tends to have a slightly warm frequency response which favors low-end, and Walnut has a balanced frequency response with a big, warm attack. When combined, these two tonewoods offer a dark and crisp attack which is further focused by the narrow 12” diameter. The cylinder drive strainer allows for precise adjustment of snare-wire sensitivity, and the lugs on this drum tension with ease, allowing for extremely precise tuning. This drum was crafted with one purpose in mind: to cut through the most intense of mixes with fury and deadly precision.

Additionally, a cylinder-drive strainer provides smooth adjustment by way of a self-lubricating bearing and "mirco-lock" technology. This Mapex Black Panther snare drum features stainless steel snare wires for crisp, lively action.
