The Warbird forms part of a new selection of Artist signature models in the Mapex Black Panther range. These snares represent the character and unique sound of these classic Mapex artists, and offer the opportunity for you to have a bit of their magic in your kit.
The Warbird is the Signature Snare from Chris Adler, legendary drummer from the band Lamb of God. The Most striking aspect of this drum is his own Warbird design thats custom engraved onto the shell, making it look awesome. The shell itself is made from a 6 ply mix of maple and walnut in a 12" by 5.5" configuration. This gives the sound an intense low bark when tuned low, and a powerful crack when tuned higher. This is reinforced by the addition of the Mapex SONIClear Bearing edge which gives and even more quick, sparky and biting tone. When you buy this snare you will also get a personally sighned picture booklet, adding a nice touch.
Being part of the Black Panther range, The Warbird makes use of many of the professional class features that the series brings. This includes the Black Panther cylinder-drive strainer that uses a self-lubricating bearing to keep the motion smooth and the snare tension even across the drum. There's an adjustment dial to fully cusomise the motion of the strainer, and it provides a tactile and satisfying click as its turned. Mapex Sonic Saver hoops are also used, providing a mid ground between a flanged hoop and a die-cast hoop. A nice touch is that you get Chris' personal choice of snare wires and drum head fitted as standard so it's like you took the snare out of the hands of the man himself!
- The thin hybrid maple and walnut shell makes this drum perfect for a main snare when tuned high and is excellent for use as a auxiliary side snare.
- The SONIClear™ bearing edge increases tuning range and makes tuning easier and quicker.
- The small 12” x 5.5” size enhances articulation so that even the softest ghost notes don’t get lost.
