Possessing a mix of fury and deadly precision, this drum delivers an intense, dark punch when tuned low and an explosive pop when cranked high.
This is part of the new line of Artist Series Black Panther snare drums, which feature a Lifetime Limited Warranty. The Warbird drum features the Black Panther cylinder-drive strainer. This amazing piece uses a self-lubricating bearing to ensure smooth operation while providing control of the snare tension. The cylinder-drive strainer also provides a tactile click as it’s turned, and the adjustment dial uses a micro-lock technology for control. Sonic Saver hoops are designed to bridge the gap between flanged and die-cast versions. Possessing a mix of fury and deadly precision, this 12" x 5-1/2" 6-ply maple/walnut shell of the Mapex Warbird Snare delivers an intense, dark punch when tuned low and an explosive pop when cranked high, Black Panther works every time.
With addition of the SONIClear Bearing Edge the sounds that this drum produces can be described as biting, powerful and quick.
The snare is also fitted with Sonic Saver hoops that dramatically reduce stick wear and enhance resonance. Additionally, a cylinder-drive strainer provides smooth adjustment by way of a self-lubricating bearing and "mirco-lock" technology. This Mapex Black Panther snare drum features stainless steel snare wires for crisp, lively action.
