Re: Looking for great maple snare for studio. Rock, pop, country.
I have a Mapex Black Panther Phat Bob that is amazing! It's 14x7, 12mm maple that delivers a phenomenal sound. Tunes from high to low with ease and can cover all the bases you're asking. I believe it's 7 ply. I have a Evans Genera dry head on batter and a Evans hazy 300 reso. There's a reason why they call it "Phat" Bob. Enjoy the hunt but you most definitely need to check this bad boy out.
