What We Think

Body and projection abound in this Black Panther Heritage Snare from Mapex! Measuring in at a modest 5.5"x14", this snare is deceptively powerful. Its shallow depth allows for excellent snare sensitivity and dynamic playing, while the 6-ply maple shell and 45-degree bearing edges result in a powerful and cutting tone with plenty of depth. This used drum is in very good physical condition, with the only obvious signs of wear existing as stick-marks on the batter head. 

Manufacturer's Description from Mapex

It starts with the raw materials. Building the highest quality product initially depends on the expertise of those that select the wood. Premium grade hardwoods like maple, walnut, birch, and basswood are hand-selected from worldwide sources and are then matched by skilled experts to ensure that every drum Mapex produces carries with it the signature tonal and resonant properties that define the distinctive Mapex sound.

Let’s face it, looks are important too. All of our lacquer drums have eight-coat, hand-rubbed, high-gloss lacquer applied to each shell. Mapex finishes are durable, easy to maintain.

The details do matter. Our isolated tom mounting system ensures the sound you hear is all tom. From the bearing edges to the easy set bass drum claws, our dedicated artisans think like musicians and apply their expertise to create a drum set that lets you focus on your playing and not on the equipment.

Every drum gets the same treatment. Regardless of price, we want every drum we craft to be built to exacting specifications. We want you to start out on Mapex and love it so much that when you make it big, you remember us.

We stand behind our instruments. Our artisans are relentless in designing and producing drums and hardware that can endure performance after performance. The result is a drum that you take on stage or into the studio with complete confidence.

Mapex SONIClear™ DEMO

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.
