    Default Mapex Black Panther Snare

    How many of you guys are playing them and/or own them? I have been eyeing one for a while now, and am thinking about pulling the trigger and adding one to my kit.

    I have the Black Panther hammered series or whatever... It's a serious BEAST!!!
    I had to stop using it though as I added the DW rack arm snare basket and that snare is so heavy I was scared of breaking the arm.
    Now I play it on another kit. But it's a great snare.

    I found this used 6.5x14" Mapex Black Panther Bird's eye maple snare at my local family owned music store for $270. It's sounds great. 100% all maple and it came with a S-Hoop on the batter side. I think the previous owner swapped out the stock hoop. If you have your eye on one...snag it!

    Sledgehammer & Cherry Bomb. Great snares. Can't go wrong with Mapex.

    Given the quality of the 3 Mapex kits I've owned over the years, I'd have no qualms about picking up a black panther snare.
    Mmm... Saturns.

    I guess I should have updated this post yesterday instead of making a post in another section of the forum, but I picked this one up for $180 yesterday. It's the Black Panther Blade, and it sounds phenomenal.

    Only if you do it with two arms. I use one like Rick Allen of Def Leopard.
