    12 x 5.5 Brass / Brass Master

Overview

The deep, dark, rich tone of the Black Panther Brass Series produces distinct and crisp overtones at a high tuning while maintaining a dry and controlled response at the mid-range. At a low tuning, the Black Panther Brass Snare delivers the deep and driving punch that you feel as clearly as you hear.

I'm including both the badged "Black Pather" and "Brass Master" models here, as they are essentially the same drum and have the same catalogue reference.
