With a 7-ply, 6mm all-maple shell; stunning high-gloss lacquer finish; and cool black nickel hardware, this Tama Artwood Custom snare drum puts the "art" back into the art of snare drum making. An Evans Power Center Reverse Dot head provides great tone and projection.
Tama Artwood Custom snares offer maple's signature characteristics in sound, feel, and response. A slightly thicker drum shell provides extra warmth and projection, while traditional triple-flanged steel hoops offer a more controlled rim shot.

I picked up the satin cherry burst 14" by 6.5" a few months back to replace my original snare. Right out of the box I was impressed with what I got. The pics don't do it justice, this thing is beautiful. I tightened the Evans Reverse Dot head to 85 lbs and upon initial strike I was blown away from its loudness. No dampening was necessary once the snare tension wires found the sweet spot and from than its worked great. Rim shoot accents are very cutting and distinctive with the die cast hoops and depending where you strike on the head provides very different sounds. The warmth of maple really makes this a killer snare and in comparison to the peart atisan or like equipment - the price and quality can't be matched. Another fine piece of Tama craftsmanshiip.
I own the 6.5 x 13 TAMA Artwood with the Super Maple finish. Basically, I was in search of a versatile snare drum that I could use as a main or a side snare. I also wanted a snare drum that was reasonably priced. I knew TAMA was the direction to go with a reputation for �ۡ��̏great quality�ۡ�ݕ�_ products�ۡ��_which is also based on my personal experience. I like metal snare drums, however I needed something with a little more body to it. TAMA�ۡ���s Artwood has definitely made an impression on me. It has a lot of character: depth as well as sensitivity, a bright open resonant sound, & the warmth of maple. I like the look of the black hardware against this �ۡ��̏quality�ۡ�ݕ�_ high-gloss lacquer finish. I also like the versatility of the Evans Power Center Reverse Dot head. I did eventually change the hoops on this drum. The factory 1.6mm triple flanged hoops were nice; they give the snare drum a more rounded open sound. However, I wanted the drum to be a little more aggressive, so I equipped the snare with 2.3mm triple flanged hoops. The snare drum has a more focused, brighter attack with lots of ring. I use this drum mainly as a side snare with the snare wires on or turned off. If you�ۡ���re in the market for a maple snare drum, then definitely consider the TAMA Artwood�ۡ��_I�ۡ���m certainly glad I did. You�ۡ���ll receive top quality & great sound at a reasonable price. Highly recommended!!
