Mapex Black Panther Snares: The Superhero in your Drumming Arsenal

By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | February 28, 2018

The snare drum is the most played drum in your kit and is, therefore, one of the things that will most influence your tone. Does your snare stand up to the tone test? Or is it time to upgrade to a Mapex Black Panther?

The Black Panther snares are great looking, awesome sounding snare drums that will help define your tone and help you to stand out. In a world full of drummers, having an outstanding tone could make the difference between getting that gig or being passed over for it!

The Mapex Black Panther range of snares has something for every drummer. Are you into rock and metal? Then you should consider getting your hands on the Matt Halpern or Chris Adler Snare drums. If you want something warm and focused, then you can’t go wrong with the Velvetone snare.

The Super Hero in Your Drumming Arsenal

Black Panther snares really are the super hero in any drum kit in which they appear, and one good super hero deserves another. If you buy a Mapex Black Panther Snare before 10 March 2018 you’ll get two free tickets to go watch the Black Panther movie. And we’ll even throw in some popcorn!
