I was a bit worried about the price, and wasn't able to use until the actual show, but the moment I hit the snare, I knew it was worth every penny! I love it, and am very excited for all the time I get to spend with it!
Got the 5.5x14 version of this snare a few weeks ago and I love it! I've wanted one for the longest time and am happy to have it. It really rings out a lot. I didn't have the ring that controls the overtones. Maybe some moongel or a different batter head will help that. It's gorgeous. It's great for the price. I use Evans heads already, but haven't used the ST, but it sounds great. I have a wood snare, so I wanted to add a metal snare and so glad I chose this. If you are thinking about getting this, go to a store and listen for yourself. You'll love it.
This snare is by far the best snare ive ever owned. It could be used for almost any type of music. It has a great snap and its loud. I had a yamaha stage custom snare that came with my set, that snare was good but i was looking for something that had a little better snap and that was louder. i found just that with this snare. if your looking for a great snare at a reasonable price then look no further
I've had the 14x5.5 version of this snare for a year now. It has been absolutely amazing. It has a fantastic sound which is perfect for metal and it is extraordinarily loud. It will cut through guitar, bass, and vocals in a live setting without any amplification. Tuned up high it will give an amazing pop, or lower for a crack that sounds like the Earth being sundered. The only problem I have with it is that it has an unattractive metallic ringing sound to it, but it's easily controlled by a bit of moongel. This snare is simply amazing especially given the relatively low price. I recommend it to any drummer, new or professional.
this is one of the best snares I've ever played on! i play hard core music and the sound is unreal. the metal body gives it a loud pop.i even put it on my new kit!! its that good! the only problem i had with it is that the chain straps ripped within a month because they are made of cloth. but new ones are cheap so its no sweat! if you are looking for a good loud snare for a great price. this is the one!!!
cannot go wrong with this snare drum.......it is sooooooo musical. Once again tama proves why they are the best!!!!!!
Purchased a 6.5 x 13 off the shelf. First slap of the head and I was sold. Very crisp, clear and very loud. I play a lot of funk rock, jazz, country, R&B, classic rock. Met all my expectations of a snare, at a good price. Highly recommended =)
I just bought the 6.5x13 snare a couple weeks ago. Played it at a gig that night and it was great! Cuts through much better than my Pearl VMX Maple snare. Nice high pitch crack like a 13" piccolo snare but with more depth. Several people commented on how great it sounded and looked! I've been playing it at practice since and it is working out perfectly.
I bought my 6 1/2x13 about 2 years ago. I have to tell you i'm very impressed. This drum stands up to all phases of music. From the soft notes of classical to the extreme heaviest of metal. This is one drum that can easily be used as a primary or a side snare. Tama hit it's mark when this snare drum was put in play!!!!
I have the 12 by 4 (I like really high-pitched snares), and it sounds amazing! I thought it would almost be too high (like a piccolo), but it can sound similar to Chris Adler's snare if tuned right. I've played on the other sizes, and they sound great, too. Overall, a great price for the best snare ever!
