The Nucleus forms part of the 2020 range of Black Panther snare drums from Mapex. Black Panther snares are known across the industry for their excellent sound, high-quality construction and striking, unique visual styles. This brand new series is no different - featuring the same attention to detail you know and love, with updates and refinements across the board. Encompassing new sizes, features and materials, there's plenty to explore.
The backbone of this 14" x 5.5" snare is an 8-ply 8.1mm hybrid maple/walnut/maple shell. It boasts a 45-degree batter side and a 35-degree snare side. Add to this a triple vented chamber, and the end result is a snare with a great sense of balance. If you're looking for a snare that's built for those driving, precise grooves, then you're in the right place. The combination of woods creates an interesting blended sound too. The central plies of walnut offer a more organic, natural tone, while the maple that it's sandwiched between provides a more classic, contemporary sound.
A number of smart features assist in other areas too. A cylinder drive snare strainer and butt-end adjuster make use of a self-lubricating bearing. This helps to create a far smoother operation. Smart microlock adjustment is present too, allowing for more accurate control over your sound, while stopping your snare wires from becoming loose while you practice, perform or record.
Tuning drums can sometimes be an annoying and time consuming process. However, thanks to the SONIClear bearing edges included here, those headaches are a thing of the past. They guarantee a great sound, even with limited tuning experience. How do they work though? They allow the head of the drum to sit flatter; this in turn ensures better contact with the shell. This leads to a lower and stronger overall pitch, as well as far more consistent tuning. The actual tuning range is enhanced too!
The SONIClear bearing edges work in conjunction with the Sonic Saver Hoops. These were especially created for the Black Panther series. They ensure that your snare remains in tune, while simultaneously improving its projection.
