Mapex Black Panther 7x12" Fastback Snare Drum
Mapex’s Black Panther line of snare drums features unique drums for specialization in one particular musical genre and their Fastback snare is great for hip hop because of its dry attack. It has a deeper tone appropriate for a darker hip hop sound but with enough pop for other sub-categories within this genre as well. Its maple shell is drier than most and delivers a clear pop and it features high-quality Sonic Saver hoops designed to keep tension throughout extreme tensions and heavy rim-shots. The Cylinder-Drive strainer is very smooth and durable with a 45 degree bearing edge which gives it a sharp attack that will cut through electronic effects while the 7x12-inch size produces a big and bright sound that’s perfect for hip hop. The Sienna Burst finish and chrome hardware looks great to give this snare the right amount of bling.
