Looking back and moving forward! Retrosonic is a classic with out the wait. The shells
are hand selected walnut and outfitted with the unique Retrosonic full-lenth tube lugs
and Sonic Saver hoops. With a Walnut Burl veneer finish, it comes as a simple and
elegant three-piece set-up that's reminiscent of drum-building tradition from another
age. Only 100 of these individual set-ups will be available worldwide.
All Black Panther Retrosonic column lugs are hand-tooled stainless steel.
The 1:9 rounded bearing edge ensures optimum sound because the drumhead seats
at the furthest outer point of the shell allowing the drumhead to vibrate at its fullest.
The Mapex Sonic Saver™ hoop is another important ingredient to the Black Panther
drum's total sound.
The shape of the hoop helps further focus the overall sound. The unique shape of
the hoop creates a profile that reduces wear and tear to both sticks and hands while
dramatically enhancing the response and feel of every rimshot. The 2.3mm Sonic
Saver hoop successfully bridges the gap between flanged and die cast hoops.
