Mapex have announced the Black Panther Design Lab series snare drums. These professional level snares were developed with the performance needs of top players in mind and engineered to blend sound and performance with modern design.
The Mapex Black Panther Design Lab Series embodies the performance qualities desired by top players. These distinctive instruments have been engineered using the Design Lab’s 'concept hybrid' approach to sound design, shell composition and drum construction. Their understanding of how different tone woods, bearing edge profiles, counterhoop styles, lug casings, snare wires, drumheads and even shell finishes can affect the acoustic performance of a drum has allowed Mapex to combine 'sound concepts' to create unique and personal instruments for the demanding player.
The series comprises of four distinct drums - the Equinox 14” Snare, the Heartbreaker 14” Snare, and the Cherry Bomb 14” and 13” Snares, which are a reimagined and optimised versions of the original Cherry Bomb snare.
Each of the new Black Panther Design Lab Snares are built with the Mapex 10-lug hoops, Puresound premium snare wires, Cylinder-Drive Strainer, and SONIClear Bearing edges.
