• Black Panther Timeline

This will always be a bit of a "work in progress" as new information emerges about the development of the Black Panther range. Note that for each year I've only listed the snares shown on the website, in an available price list or catalogue, or ones shown to have been released during the year.

There's a limit on how accurate I can be with range change dates, especially in the late 90s/early 2000s, as there are so few catalogues and the Wayback Machine only has periodic snapshots available. If you see any major errors or ommisions, please let me know.
