Mapex 12×5.5in Maple Deluxe Snare Drum – Pre Owned
Condition: Drum is of a fair age and long since discontinued. The hardware is in reasonable condition but the gold has worn away and pitted in a number of places. The throwoff still works great and the shell and internal screws are all in great nick. The finish has suffered a number of scratches but still looks pretty good. This thing sounds awesome, it has a great pop when cranked to a mid-high tension and being a smaller drum it has excellent responsive snare wires (which are original to the drum). Batter head is an Aquarian American Vintage Medium and resonant size is an Evans Hazy 300. See images.
This is one of the original Mapex Black Panther drums. Features original Saturn series hardware including the throwoff and 2.3mm PowerHoops with an all Maple shell.
