A vintage-style snare drum with a versatile sound for the next generation.
Don't let the metallic shell fool you, the 5"x14" Tama S.L.P. Super Aluminum Snare Drum is far from a shell pack throw-in. The 1.6mm chrome-plated aluminum shell and uniquely wide internal 15mm flanged edge deliver a new layer of crispness and resonance for a new take on a classic sound. It also offers significant power with a resilient punch not typically found in generic aluminum snare drums.
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. These innovations have enabled the drum to have a great high to low range. The Starclassic Carbon Steel Snappy Snares will emphasize needed attack, but also limit the amount of effort needed to control the tension on your snares.
