Overview

Designed by Craig Blundell, the Black Panther Design Lab "Machine" snare, is crafted with a Maple/Walnut shell delivering a warm and modern sound.

Special "gated" Equalizer Puresound snares create a unique clarity and the staggered lugs provide a wide tuning range with powerful projection. The Machine articulates a progressive, dynamic sound with a dark punch and drive.

On a personal note, I fell in love with Mapex after a Sound Attak drum clinic with Gregg Bissonette and Craig Blundell in 2004, so Craig, if you ever read this, this site is all your fault 😻
