This custom drum is finished with a truly beautiful outer ply of African bubinga.
The Tama Starclassic Performer Bubinga/Birch Custom Snare Drum has 7 inner plies of birch-for the rich tonality that only thin birch can supply-paired with an inner ply of African bubinga. The harder, thicker bubinga accentuates birch's distinct tone and projection. The combination of the 2 tonewoods creates a more powerful, deeply rounded sound that is unlike any other drum. The Tama Starclassic snare drum is finished with a gorgeous single outer ply of bubinga.
