The Metallion 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 a 1.2mm seamed brass shell. It boasts a 45-degree batter side and a 35-degree snare side. Add to this a quad vented chamber, and the end result is a snare with a warm and precise character, boasting well-balanced sound that retains just enough bite.
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 rolled 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 rolled 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.
