A definitive all-maple snare drum designed and tested to deliver maximum warmth and resonance.
When drummers dream of maple snare drums, the 5 1/2"x14" Tama S.L.P. Classic Maple Snare Drum is surely near the front of the pack. With a robust 8-ply, 7mm choice maple hardwood shell, a rich antique maple finish and classic chrome hardware, this drum projects a balanced, resonant, and open sound to satisfy the ears of even the most discerning percussionist.
Tama's work on identifying the ideal snare sound led them to develop the new "Sound Arc" Hoops which add sustain, wider tuning range and a fuller frequency response. Hearty brass tube lugs will ensure a long lifespan for your tension rods, as well as your tune. And finally, the Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Steel Snappy snares will emphasize needed punch and attack, as needed.
