What We Think

Don't be deceived by the Mapex Black Panther Velvetone drum's beautifully seductive exterior-this snare drum is wickedly dark with a high degree of sensitivity. Its 8.1mm drum shell is constructed from one 3mm exterior burl maple ply, one 3.4mm walnut middle ply, and one 1.7mm interior maple ply.

Manufacturer's Description from Mapex

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.
