      Comments about Tama Birch Snare Drum:

      I've always wanted a deep snare drum 7 inches or 8 inches deep, preferably a wooden drum, and this Tama birch snare at 8x14 is amazing. It doesn't have the more elaborate snare strainer mechanism, which is fairly simple and a header model... but it works fine and a drum key keeps the snare stand just where you need it. It's easily adjustable. And as deep a drum this one is, you can tune it to a medium or even a higher pitch and it holds that pitch fine. I prefer a medium-low tune to get that fat rock sound. It even has marching drum quality. Recording wise, it's a great asset to a fleet of snare drums for different purposes. And it's a beautiful drum, too, in the galaxy silver sparkle. I may have it rewrapped to match some vintage gold sparkle drums I am using.

      Comments about Tama Birch Snare Drum:

      Very versatile. I play many genres of music and this snare adapts to them all. Really great for Christian rock but can give you that pop as well.

      Best snare drum little money can buy

      By Manny

      from Allentown, PA

      Comments about Tama Birch Snare Drum:

      Recently bought this snare, to add to my collection. I have a tama artwood snare thats maple/birch in 6.5 ×14 its defintely one of my snares, with its perfect depth dimensions. At first i was a little hesitant that this snare was 8 inches in depth. Not that i dont mind having a snare for a particular style, but i was worried that it would only sound good tuned low for rock. Boy i was mistaken lol. I cant believe that this drum can be tuned at such pretty high volume and still not choke. I give the credit to the bearing edges. These edges are perfectly cut and the shell is thin. You would think that this drum would cost alot more given the craftsmanship. Sure youre stuck with choosing one finish however this galaxy sparkle looks beautiful under the lights. So far so good when played live. Ill definitely provide another review after testing it in the studio. Im excited to try it!!!

      Great Snare with a great, deep and dark tone

      By Jim the runner

      from Coeur D Alene

      Comments about Tama Birch Snare Drum:

      I was looking for a nice, deep snare to match my lower tuned toms and dark cymbals. I bought this with a Remo Emporer and a pack of moon gels and got it tuned. The original head was a nice coated head but I definitely preferred it the Remo. The drum likes to ring without the moon gel but with them, it sounds absolutely amazing. I would for sure recommend this to a friend looking for a deep snare.

        Comments about Tama Birch Snare Drum:

        Bought it and immediately used it at a gig 4 hours later. Loud, deep roaring crack from the 8" depth and a crystal clear snap on rolls and light back beats due to the character of the birch. Theres no bad tuning with this one. Stock head held up well.
