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.

This is the older model with the Black Chrome finish rather than the Natural Polished Brass one.

Note the custom engraving on Donn Bennett's (Donn's Drum Vault) personal snare. Donn told me: "John Aldridge did the engraving. Basically, every time he came to my shop he would do another engraving. This was basically my alternative to getting tattoos."  Pretty eh?
