What We Think

The Mapex Black Panther Cyrus snare drum revitalizes the sound of steel within the Black Panther series. Steel is known to be bright and piercing, but the 1mm shell helps offset that to provide a great balance of body and brightness. The Cyrus received the Design Lab Air Flow venting which delivers and even dispersion of air, minimizes some overtones, and provides a nice overall feel to the playability of this drum. If you've been searching for a versatile, classic-sounding snare that's ideal for live work, check out the Mapex Black Panther Cyrus 6x14 snare drum.
