[Musikmesse] Mapex Black Panther 14x6
Mapex USA has added a Thick Flamed Maple model (BPFM4600THT) to its line-up of Black Panther snares.
The snare features a 15-ply, 12mm thick all-maple shell and rounded bearing edges that increase shell contact with the head. Drum dimensions are 14x6.
“What we created is a snare drum with a dark, full-bodied sound and an incredibly soft feel,” commented Joe Hibbs, Mapex Product Development Manager. The drum has a deep snare bed to further enrich the sound and enhance player control.
The exterior ply of the shell is a beautiful highly figured maple veneer finished in a transparent Honey Maple Burst lacquer. The drum features chrome plated, low mass, single-point-of-contact lugs, die cast hoops and a fully adjustable throw-off and butt plate.
MAPEX artist Will Calhoun played the Thick Flamed Maple snare for the first time at the 2007 Shanghai MESSE where he instantly fell in love with it. Will said, “Beautiful Color, complete dynamic range for Rock, Jazz, Funk, Fusion, R & B. This is the best multi-task snare drum I’ve ever played. Sensitive, with room to explode. The sound of a wooden with the volume of a brass snare.”
All flamed maple snare drums come with a BP Deluxe snare bag.
