Mapex 30th Anniversary Limited Edition 14×6.5 Snaredrum
The Black Panther Design 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Snare Drum is a throwback tribute to the widely admired Deep Forest Snare Drum of the 1990’s. Made of the same natural finished 100% walnut plies, this drum’s Dark, Rich Saturating Tone is sure to awaken every drummer’s inspiration for a solid backbeat. The sound quality is defined by the SONIClear Bearing Edge, and focused by the Sonic Hoops making this a classic Mapex snare drum with modern Mapex character.
The SONIClear Bearing Edge implemented on the 30th anniversary snare drum allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a clearer fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range.
Sonic Saver Hoops
The inward flange and extra weight of the Sonic Saver Hoops help to focus and control the sound of the drums. The projection is more “down” than “out” and will provide more of a “vintage” or closed tone.
Cylinder-Drive Strainer and Butt-End Adjuster
The Cylinder-Drive Strainer and Butt-End Adjuster use a self-lubricating bearing to ensure smooth operation. The adjustment dial employs “micro-lock” technology that provides precise control and prevents the snare wires from loosening during play.
Puresound Custom Series 16-Strand Wires
The Puresound Custom Series 16-Strand Wires feature medium-gauge wire with evenly spaced standard coils, providing an even balance between snare response and shell sound.
