I play slipknot music, and let me tell you, this thing makes the jordison snare look like the cheap pick up truck of snares. it packs a punch with a nice full, deep sound.

Comments about Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum:

I bought this snare and was a nervous reck but as soon as I started to jam.....it was beautiful. I purchased the 13" and it really is worth every penny. This is a must have for anyone looking to replace or add a snare to their kit

This drum definately made an impression...wow!!

Comments about Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum:

I've played many snare drums - Tama's Gmaple, Starclassic maple, Bubinga, brass, a couple Warlords as well as others like Pacific, Ludwig, Pearl, etc....most of which are great snare drums. The Metalworks is among those that are great, and it's loud!! I'm sure it's not the loudest snare drum out there, but it's definately the loudest I've ever played. I don't want to tell you that this is the greatest snare drum for the money. Mainly because there are too many great snare drums to just own one...at least in my opinion. The Metalworks is definately an amazing snare drum to have in your arsenal though. Now whether your a Drummer on a budget or not, if your looking for a steel snare, than this my recommendation. At least consider it, I'm certainly glad I did. I changed the batter hoop to a Tama die cast. The drum sounded great with the original flanged hoop. It had open bright highs, great rimshot, very responsive, etc, etc. I was just curious about the die cast, and it made an impression...it's louder & "cuts". It has focused "attack", a strong "crack" when you crank it, killer rimshot, and still has the sharp overtones most would want from steel snare drum. Now...I've been just talking about the 5.5 x 14...yeah. I'm curious about 6.5 x 14...the volume...wow! The Metalworks looks sharp with all the black features and has all the quality you would expect from Tama...it's well worth the money.

Comments about Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum:

I can't say enough good things about this snare. I got the 13"x6.5" and its awesome! Very nice crackly tone. Perfect for me. An awesome snare to use for heavier musical genres.

Amazing Low-end drive

By Mitch

from Georgia

Comments about Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is an amazing snare for the money. I have the 6.5 x 13 and it is perfect for me. It is easily tunable with a Evans Genera G2 Head cause you can get the powerful low end and the crisp upper end. This snare is worth the money.

Nice Snare

By Mike

from Northampton ,PA

Comments about Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum:

Got to say this is a heck of a deal for the budget minded drummer. Went To Guitar Center(Allentown PA) and tried this snare out on a kit there and this snare did just as the reviews said. I got the 6.5 x 14 tuned it up and practiced with my band yesterday and this thing has presence. Come with a really nice snare bag and Evans heads also. The only thing i dont like about it is it's not made here, but my Tama Starclassics are not either. So if you dont have huge bucks for a dw, craviotto, dunnett, ludwig, this one does a nice job.

Simply Beautifull

By Jrock

from Oklahoma

Comments about Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum:

Ive used the 13x6.5 several times and this thing is solid. when tuned up high it gives a wonderfull crack with tons of presence and still maintains a great tone when tuned lower. I couldnt believe the price on it when I first saw it. I definetly plan on getting one of these in the future. BUY IT!

Comments about Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum:

I bought this snare with the intention of expanding my kits' sound. This drum does exactly that. I love the deepness and clarity of the tone, along with the great black finish. This snare is proof that a bargin price can getcha' one hell of a drum. GREAT PRODUCT ! ! !
