Black Panther

im thinking about buying a mapex black panther 12x7" maple snare to use as my primary snare. Is this a good idea or is this snare only a side snare?

Any snare can be used as a main snare, as long as you are happy with the sounds that you can get from it. A snare drum is one of the most important parts of the kit, and along with the ride cymbal really makes up a drummer's "voice".

Just remember two things:

1. There are no drumming "rules". Do what you want.

2. See rule #1.
