Mapex Black Panther 14" x 8" 30th Anniversary Ralph Peterson Snare Drum

The deep all maple shell finished with black-plated lugs and a black lacquered exotic outer veneer is an instrument straight out of the heart and mind of the late, great Ralph Peterson Jr. This instrument pays tribute to an artist with a deep connection to the history and traditions of the aggressive hard-bop jazz style, and is able to produce whispering ghost strokes and lightning sharp rimshots courtesy of the specially finished black wooden hoops. The character of the instrument matches the character of its creator, deep in spirit and high on energy.
