The Black Panther Design Lab Versatus System represents the pinnacle of instrument design. Groundbreaking innovations combine with drum-building mastery to form a unique and extremely versatile instrument. The hybrid Maple and Mahogany shells use the chamber-specific designs of the Black Panther Design Lab systems. Plies get progressively thicker, depths graduate by 1/2”, bearing edges change and the SAS ring system modulates as the drums get larger in diameter. The combination of these details creates an amazing symphony of instruments in one kit, where each and every drum sounds perfect!

Drum Sizes:

  • 10" x 7" & 12" x 7.5" Toms
  • 14" x 13" & 16" x 15" Floor Toms
  • 22" x 16" Bass Drum
  • 18" x 12" Auxiliary Drum

Note: This is a 6 piece shell kit only. Cymbals, hardware, and snare drum are not included.

Magnetic Air Adjustment Tom Suspension

Revolutionary ... It’s the only word to describe the Magnetic Air Adjustment Tom Suspension (MAATS-A) System for acoustic drums. This is a brand new approach to mounting and sonically suspending the toms on your drum kit. Invented by Randall May International Inc., and tailored for Mapex Black Panther Design Lab, MAATS-A was developed to accentuate and attenuate the purity of the instrument’s sonic properties. It also gives the opportunity to personalize the response of the drum to each player’s personal preference. The result is an unprecedented sound and feel, alleviating vibration transfer loss. The multiple US & International Patent Pending MAATS system mitigates the weight of the drum into a dynamically/floating magnetic space field. Thus, allowing for the for magnetic adjustment to custom define the sustain and note size individually for each drum.

  • Magnetic Force Adjustment - Controls how much of the weight of the drum you are allowing the magnets to pick up. As you apply magnetic force, the sound opens because the weight is being distributed to the opposing magnets
  • Acoustic Resonance Gate - As the positioning of the "ARG" moves up and down, the sustain length of the drum lengthens or shortens. This is an incredible way to dial in your perfect drum sound in real time!
  • Drum Leverage Adjustment - The drum leverage position adjusts to any mounted tom size!

SAS Attenuating Floor Tom Leg

This BREAKTHROUGH eliminates the need for external muffling of your floor toms. Given that a straighter path to the ground through the floor tom legs results in greater loss of sound, the ability to alter their shape allows you to control the resonance. With options for every angle, even beyond 90˚ to a radical inverted position, the SAS floor tom leg makes unlimited real-time attenuation of your drums possible.

Auxiliary Drum

Another unique concept from the Design Lab is the new Aux Drum. This “3-in-1” instrument concept opens a whole new world of versatility within a single drum. The Aux Drum has been designed to be a small diameter bass drum, a “gong” bass drum and also a “gong” floor tom all in one convenient and great-sounding instrument.

Aux Drum Specifications:

  • 18” Diameter X 12” Deep 9-Ply (10.8 mm) Maple / Mahogany Shell
  • Features the “Versatus” system Shell formula
  • Batter side bass drum head and hoop
  • Resonant side tom head and hoop
  • A new 3-Point bracket positioning that allows for complete flexibility of set-up
  • Includes removable spurs for bass drum set-up
  • Includes 3, Design Lab 90˚ “Static” floor tom legs for the "gong" floor tom
  • “3-Point” bracket positioning allows for the Aux Drum to be mounted via two TH800 Soniclear tom arms on cymbal stands
  • Special “slotted” batter side bass drum hoop, to allow for proper pedal positioning on the AC909 bass drum “lift” (Included)
    Available in all colors of Black Panther Design Lab and with hoop selection options
