Rock-hard Maple Snare with Big Cat Snarl
The Mapex Black Panther Equinox Snare features a North American maple shell, reinforcement rings, and the classic styling of single-flanged hoops, which evoke musical traditions with modern execution.
It also has 10-lug hoops that give you secure, tight resonance; Puresound premium snare wires for an extra-defined rattle; a Cylinder-drive strainer for a smooth throw off with a tactile click; and SoniClear bearing edges that give a classically dark, throaty rock flavour. This drum possesses the controlled articulation needed to amplify the most subtle ghost notes, coupled with a bright and open presence at full volume.
