Overview

The ultra-thin shell of the Black Panther Traditional Maple Snare series produces a reliable, earthy response that’s been embraced by players for generations. No matter what size you prefer, the Black Panther Traditional Maple Snare delivers equal tone at any tuning.

Definitely one of the rarer models from this era and there seem to be very few around these days. Certainly, it took me about a year of searching for any photos of it at all, other than the lowest resolution crop from an early catalogue. One eventually showed up on the second-hand market in late October 2022 and the seller, yoursinnoise82, was kind enough to let me use their shots.
