Mapex Black Panther Blaster Snare Phantom

The thin 5.1mm birch and walnut hybrid shell gives this drum greater sensitivity and a darker tone than its size would suggest, making it a great auxiliary snare or even a main snare on a small club kit. The centered bearing edge with rounded back-cut increase shell and drumhead contact in order to limit unwanted overtones and produce a more rounded and centered tone. The small 12" x 5" size enhances articulation so that even the softest ghost notes don't get lost.
