A warm, rich-toned maple snare with a pleasant ring and forceful drive.
A rock drummer craves punch and attack, but the resonance of the Tama SLP Power Maple Snare Drum will please the ears of the most discerning drummer. Representing an achievement by the Tama Sound Lab team, this drum offers a combination of a 6.5" depth Maple shell and a 42-strand Snappy Snare gives this drum an open sound. A beautiful Maple Burl outer ply complemented by our Midnight finish is a perfect match with the Black Nickel hardware.
However, the innovations don't stop at the tone and appearance. Tama's work on identifying the ideal snare sound led them to develop the new hardware like the "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.
