The enhanced low end and warmth of bubinga combined with the excellent focus and powerful punch of birch.

The Tama Starclassic Performer Birch and Bubinga Snare Drum has outer plies of birch paired with an inner layer 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.

Tama MUS80A strainer
When you move the lever to the on position, the lever simultaneously locks at the highest tension position-the lever won't slip to the off position, even on the loosest tension settings. The MUS80A is totally secure when you want it on, and easy to switch off when you want it off.

Tama MCS70B butt
The MCS70B uses the basic butt assembly of the MUS80B. Large 6mm screws provide improved durability.

Tama Hold Tight washer
The Hold Tight washer's cup-shaped stainless steel washer contains a rubber ring, so the tension rod pushes both the cup washer and the rubber ring. Normally, vibrations will eventually loosen the tension rod. But the softness of Hold Tight's rubber ring keeps it in contact with both the tension rod and the hoop at all times and maintains friction between them, so tension is always preserved.

  • The Tama B/B Snare

    As reviewed by Ruben Garcia on 4/8/2011

    I truly love this snare. It's one of my favorites and it's not too pricey! I have other snares that have cost me more and I'm not totally satisfied with those. This snare plays well with any drum set and whatever style of music. I give it a 5-star rating for both ooks and playability.

  • Great Snare Drum

    As reviewed by Robert Witcher on 11/30/2011

    The Tama Bubinga Birch snare sounds awesome and has a great combination of warmth and punch. It was definitely worth the purchase price and has a great finish too.

  • Great Snare Drum!

    As reviewed by Nathan on 4/2/2011

    This is a great snare drum if you are looking for snare drum that has a great sound, quick crack, as well as not too much ring. I also like how fast the snare strainer can go from off to on, and vise versa. Overall a great product! The reason that I give this drum 4 stars is that I wish that the snare sound was not quite as "Tight", or short as it is.
