An innovative, new era snare drum that produces a tone to behold.
Picture a snare with an industrial, heavy-duty metallic appearance that offers a range of tones from the warm, dry tones of the finest maple all the way to the punch and attack of bell brass. Meet Tama's Starphonic Titanium Snare Drum. A 21st century element in its own right, the titanium shell delivers extreme powerful sound and precise tonal balance. This drum represents a major step in Tama's quest for new and intrepid snare sounds
Tama's continued development of the Starphonic line led them to develop an entirely new "Grooved Hoop" and a bearing edge placement set 2.5mm from the outer surface of shell. Also, the all-new Freedom Lug and Claw Hook will provide greater control of tension rods and tuning, while partnering with the easily-detachable butt plate to enable quick replacement of worn top and bottom drumheads. These innovations have enabled the drum to have a great high to low range.
Other features of this drum include a Linear Drive strainer - which enables a greater control of the strainer's deployment motion. On the snare side of the drum, an and "Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare" will emphasize needed attack, but also limit the amount of effort needed to control the tension on your snares.
