Constructed from cherry for a focused, punchy backbeat.
The Mapex Black Panther Design Lab Series embodies the performance qualities desired by top players. These distinctive instruments have been engineered using the Design Lab's "Concept Hybrid" approach to sound design, shell composition and drum construction.
Mapex's understanding of how different tone woods, bearing edge proﬁles, counter hoop styles, lug casings, snare wires, drumheads and even shell ﬁnishes can affect the acoustic performance of a drum has allowed Mapex to combine "Sound Concepts" to create unique and personal instruments for the demanding player.
A re-imagined and optimized version of the original Black Panther model, the Design Lab Cherry Bomb is crafted with a medium-thick Cherrywood shell. The soft density of Cherry absorbs higher overtones, delivering a warm, focused tone and a punchy backbeat. It sounds and feels vintage, but is built with modern precision, reliability, and function.
