Snare sounds that blast like a hydro cannon. The Mapex Black Panther Hydro Snare Drum is a 7-inch-deep snare with imposing low-end and thumping volume. Providing fat, full-bodied sounds for bellowing backbeats perfect for rock and pop - especially those dramatic power ballads. A brand new addition to Mapex's acclaimed Black Panther range, the Hydro snare is a tremendous choice for all players. Its maple drum shell offers excellent, all-purpose tones with plenty of rumble and crunch - thanks to it chunky profile. The snare's SONIClear bearing edges ensure closer head-to-shell contact, improving resonance and response when you really need to cut through the mix. A key ingredient that gives its powerful dynamics the projection they deserve.
