About Black Panther Design Lab Drums

The Mapex Black Panther series has been a mainstay at the “top-of-the-line” for Mapex drums since its launch in 2010. However, the new Black Panther Design Lab systems, are nothing short of breakthroughs in instrument design: this “no holds barred” series uses the cumulation of 30 years of engineering, innovation, artistry, and drum-building science to form a completely new system of drums. Building from the sound up, the Artist is involved at the very first stage of conception, utilizing the Concept Hybrid approach. (This is very different from most drum manufacturers, who pick materials and build prototypes to then show artists.) The sound concept is first before the Design Lab team uses its extensive knowledge of drum-building to make that sound a reality. This is the foundation for the new “Design Lab” built and designed Black Panther system of drums.
