An extremely heavy duty, durable, hand-hammered snare drum that projects with extreme quality. The Mapex Black Panther 'The Sledge Hammer' 14x6.5 Hammered Brass Snare has a distinct bright and focused pitch which stands out with ease in any mix. Featuring a cylinder-drive strainer with a self-lubricating bearing, 'The Sledgehammer' ensures smooth operation, while providing precise control of the snare tension. Stainless steel snare wires offer crisp snare sounds which sounds natural at low, medium and medium-high tuning ranges.
A 1.2mm brass shell provides a powerful and sensitive foundation for this snare drum. From adding a sharp bite to powerful rimshots, the brass construction unlocks complex overtones and provides exceptional durability and unique aesthetics.
