What We Think

In the constant search for better snare drum sounds for the masses, the Mapex Black Panther series pushes the boundaries of design and materials. One of their newest creations is the Predator which is a 6x14 copper drum. It features a 1.2mm seamed shell with a hairline finish. Copper is known for its dark and punchy tone. Coupled with the Mapex metal shell design and the Sonic Saver hoops, this snare drum tunes up with ease and plays like a dream. If you're in search of a drum with fat tone and impressive aesthetics, give the Mapex Predator a try.

Manufacturer's Description from Mapex

Compeletely redesigned, the Mapex Black Panther Snare Drum Line has undergone some serious upgrades.  Borrowing from the renegade Design Lab series snare drums, there has been some trickle down features that are now found on these new drums, like the Design Lab Air Flow Venting, and the Soniclear Snare Beds to provide enhanced sensitivity.  All bearing edges have the Soniclear edge for easier tuning and head seating, and the the Sonic Saver Hoops are standard on all drums.  

The Predator brings a dark and powerful sense to any musical situation. The copper shell produces a profound and weighty fundamental roaring with mid-low range tone.

Mapex SONIClearâ„¢ 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.
