Mapex Black Panther Design Lab Craig Blundell "Machine" 5.5"x14" Maple/Walnut Snare Drum
Designed by Craig Blundell, the Black Panther Design Lab "Machine" snare, is crafted with a Maple/Walnut shell delivering a warm and modern sound. Special "gated" Equalizer Puresound snares create a unique clarity and the staggered lugs provide a wide tuning range with powerful projection. The Machine articulates a progressive, dynamic sound with a dark punch and drive.
The Machine is fitted with Mapex's proprietary Sonic Saver hoops, a middle ground between triple-flange and die-cast. They’re made from steel that’s folded inward for a round shape instead of a flat flange. Sonic Savers control the tone for a drier sound than triple-flange, but they don’t deaden the drum the way die-cast hoops can. They also reduce wear on the drum and sticks. The result is a focused snare with clean, punchy rim shots every time.
