Is anyone familiar with the BP snare that is included when you purchase a Mapex Pro M series kit?

How does it size up to the rest of the Black Panther line? I couldn't imagine it being on the same level as the other snare at that price.

Here's my 14X5.5 smooth brass shell with "bling bling" gold hardware... I've had it for about 3 yrs now & I haven't seen one like it in any shops any more. Do Mapex call it a "premium brass" snare now???



Sound file to follow...

IMO this is the best value for money snare I've ever used...

Aah, it's nothing flash! Just a Yamaha Stage Custom. Matt natural wood finish. Bought the kit on the strength of the 22"X18" bass drum sound. Sounds absolutely awesome with an EMAD2 Batter side. The front head (just visible on the photo) is an old Superkick2 off the batter side (hated it!) that I totally cut away leaving only the 2 inches or so of skin and felt (something for the front hoop to clamp onto). Punchy as HELL!!!

Anyway, back to the thread... Here's some more pics of the snare (and kit) from the back...





Sorry for the poor pic quality!

Default Re: 14"X5.5" Smooth brass shell

Here's a short video of a gig we did recently with an AC/DC tribute (Powerage!!!)

Their drummer used my kit for the night and this video is taken with my camera phone from the wings. The sound of the snare is very close to what I was hearing in the wings with maybe a hint of what was being heard out front... Let me know what you think!



EDIT:

Here's a better close up of the drum taken tonight...

I officially became a black panther owner recently and i could not be happier with my new hand hammered bronze 14 by 5.5. I put a Remo Powerstroke 4 on the batter side and having that focused sound is awesome. I'll have pictures up as soon as i fugure how to do it.

My friend has one of these and it looked as if the birdseye maple version has no snare bed at all. Is this true?

Well, I think I've decided what my new snare is going to be. 14x6.5 Maple... possibly Deep Forest Walnut.

Could anyone tell me the fundamental difference between Maple and Walnut would be?

i think that the Walnut is just the outer plie... my be i have a mistake on that one.... but i think it's just for making the snare looks beautiful, or its made by 100% Walnut , i never played a Walnut snare , so i don't realy know the difference between them...
take care .

I really love the Black Panther Babylonian that Mapex released a year or so ago. I saw a couple in the UK but I have never seen one in the US. I am still searching so if anyone has a line on one, new or used, I would be very grateful if you could let me know.

I am going to get a Black Panther 6 1/2 x 14 brass snare and a BP steel snare as a second snare. If I get a 6 1/2 steel would it be diverse enough compared to the brass snare, or should I consider the 5 1/2 steel instead? I want two distint sounds.
Thanks

Sweet idea, would you be using both at the same time e.g. auxilary snare or would they both be used as main snares in different situations. You could get one hammered to add variety possibly.

I probably wouldn't do that in my situation because you may run the risk of having two awesome snares that sound way to similar.

But then again you can never have to many snares, especially black panthers.

Hey, as per request, here is my Black Panther Phosphor Bronze 14x3.5:






I love it to bits and even though its only 3.5" deep, it sounds like a monster! I can only imagine what the deeper models sound like, however I like my snares shallow so I can get the best response and fast feedback form them. Comment and questions welcome.

I got the same snare, highly reccommend it because not only does it sound great but cuts through large rooms like butter. I love it.

Default Re: The Black Panther thread! For all BP snare fans and owners....

hey i now ive been on this thread a bit now...but can anyone tell me where is a good place to buy BP snares at a good price???

I was looking at a BP 10"x5.5" deep forest walnut snare on Ebay...for about 250(not including P&P),but when i went to buy,the shop doesnt sell to anyone outside the UK...

i was then looking around teh net and came upon "Midwest percussion",and they have the same snare for an even better price,that is: 290 including P&P...but i dont know if they ship internationally....??!!

everywhere else on the net ive been has had prices a lot higher(some german sites have the same snare at 350 excluding P&P,etc.)

so please help me out people!!

if any of you have ordered from "Midwest percussion"(i think its in Illisnois(if IL means that??))

Thanks

Hey gusty, well I can only recommend evans heads (as that is all I use). So maybe a 12" Evans Power Center Reverse Dot or maybe just a plain Genera. I use the PC Reverse dot and it's great. Hope this helps.
