Mapex opens the new year with a new drum set class based off the Black Panther Snare Drum series.
Beginning with the Blaster drum kit in 2011, the Black Panther suite will "continue the (...) heritage of the Orion series."
The Blaster kit will feature thin maple shells (5.1mm toms and 7.2mm bass) with walnut sound-shaping rings (3.4mm) designed to give drummers a full bodied sound, very direct and powerful. Each drum will be accented with brushed black chrome hardware and Remo Renaissance Ambassador heads.
The Blaster series will be available on a very limited basis for a very limited time, beginning January 2011. The second half of 2011 will feature the second release in the series, the Velvetone, with more models slated for release in 2012 and beyond.
