Overview

The Black Panther Steel is our loudest metal shell, yet it yields a wide dynamic range for soft articulation. The magnificent brightness embedded in the tonal bands makes the Black Panther Steel Snare an incredibly versatile, high-performance instrument.

The model wasn't around very long - it was released in 2004 when it replaced the ST4651D (same shell, chrome lugs and die-cast hoops) and was itself replaced in 2007 with a model without the tone control rings – the BPST4651A. As a result, and also because I think people hold onto them as they are such a good "workhorse" snare, this model and it's shallower brother are really tough to find these days.

Other photos from Jack's Boutique on Reverb, used for reference under fair use. I have tried multiple times, over more than a year, to contact Jack, but to no avail. He has it listed as a Tama Black Panther snare, which is probably not helping his chances of getting it sold.

Jack, if you read this PLEASE get in contact - I'd far rather ask permission properly, especially as it it's not remotely a common snare!
