The Mapex BPMW255LWH Black Panther Warbird Chris Adler Snare Drum possesses a mix of fury and deadly precision. This drum delivers an intense, dark punch when tuned low and an explosive pop when cranked high. It has Sonic Saver Hoops and comes equipped with a Cylinder-Drive Strainer.


  • 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.

  • 6ply Maple/Walnut Shell
  • SONIClear™ Edge
  • Sound: Biting, Powerful, Quick

  • Impressive drum
  • January 09, 2017

Really nice snare here. The engraving is really impressive and not too obnoxious, because the color scheme works well. The black nickel hardware is also a nice touch. In terms of the sound, the size will make the sweet spot of the tuning range to be higher than most snares. That is great for certain metal genres, funk, fusion, or anything that requires a higher pitched crack out of the snare. It's hard to tune this low because of the size, but overall the tone is actually pretty full.
