TAMA quality at it's best!

By graham976

from Stow, Ohio

I want to start off by stating TAMA makes great "quality" products. Now I can honestly say I laughed at the introduction of the "Warlord" series. What can I say�ۡ��_I thought the name & look was a little over the top. After some reviews & hearing a few of the drums, they started to make an impression. I was primarily interested, as well as impressed after playing it some at the store, in the "Spartan" snare drum. And then a friend of mine had the 6 x 13 limited maple Warlord. Let me tell you, that snare drum is wicked�ۡ��_expensive, but worth it. And all of which finally led me to the "Masai" snare drum�ۡ��_ The Masai looks incredible in person & comes with a nice hard case�ۡ��_the obvious. Now the sound of this bubinga snare drum is different from TAMA's Starclassic Bubinga. I used to own the limited edition "Midnight Storm" bubinga snare, which I painfully regret getting rid of, and I've also played the Starclassic Bubinga. Both drums are similar in plies & hardware. They had a nice powerful deep tone, rich resonant lows, and a loud crack. The Masai snare drum has a thicker shell, which gives it a different "sound character". It has a tight tone & the "solid attack" of bubinga, but not as deep or rich in resonance. Don�ۡ���t get me wrong, the Masai is a nice snare drum & unique in it�ۡ���s own right. I like the Hi-Carbon Snappy Snares. The drum has a lot of sensitivity even when played soft. I've been using the factory single ply coated head to be different among my other snare drums. I like the open ring, and between the thickness of the shell & die-cast hoops there's plenty of volume with a sweet rimshot. Now with everything you just read, I actually prefer & would suggest the Starclassic Bubinga snare drum�ۡ��_that�ۡ���s just my opinion. I was a little disappointed in the sound character of the Masai�ۡ��_not the sound quality. The Starclassic Bubinga is lot more versatile with rich resonance & deep tone�ۡ��_again that�ۡ���s just my opinion. Also, you�ۡ���ll save a few $$ whether it's a standard Starclassic Bubinga or the "Elite" with the only con being availability (special order in most cases).

AMAZING!!!

By Danny B.

from san antonio, tx

I played one of these at the local GC after doing some research on the web... PERFECT. it's pricey, but worth every penny in my oppinion. It has the widest variety of sounds i've seen on any one snare drum. If you want that fast crip pop, it has it, if you want more of a loose buzz, it has it, and everything in between. the throw is as simple and effective as it can be, and the dual snare tension adjusters allow you to adjust the snare on the fly. This snare will not dissappoint you in any way shape or form.

this is the beauty AND the beast!

By Hunter Sexton

from Cedar Park, Texas

I don't know how to describe this snare in 1000 words, because it leaves me speechless. This is the most beautiful and visually stunning snare I've seen by far. However, it's not all show. The Masai is also a BEAST of a snare drum. It is considerably louder than i was expecting, but in a good way. This is by far the most amazing snare drum I have ever heard. the rim shots can shatter glass, but it doesn't need any dampening, it sounds amazing no matter where or how hard you hit it. This drum is absolutely FLAWLESS.

A very satisfying snare drum

By Nick

from New York

I had an all metal snare drum, but there was something missing, there wasn't that much body and warmth as well as attack so I checked in with my local guitar center to find a snare drum that would satisfy the criteria I look for in a snare drum. I have to tell you as soon as I tried the masai snare drum, I knew at that moment that this drum was for me. The masai gave me a really strong attack when I needed to accent some notes on the snare, but gave all the subtlety I needed for all my ghost notes, and a nice crack and pop for funk. I was also amazed at how much tuning can be done to it. basically, this snare drum has it all. If you want subtlety for all those ghost notes and for jazz, that powerful attack for rock, the loud pop and crack for funk and fast response overall then this drum is for you and as an added bonus it looks good with the laquer finish and it has crystals in it so anybody looking for that snare drum that "does it all" then buy this snare drum trust me it won't disappoint you the price is very much worth it.

outstanding!

By Bob McK.

from Hazlet, NJ

when I first got this snare, I was amazed at all the different tuning levels it allowed, with every level from tuned way down, to up high, it gave me EVERYTHING I needed, and then some. Get one, you won't regret it!

This little baby can do it all

By liquidmetaltheater

from Shawnee, OK

I am a big fan of all things Tama. And this drum is no exception. This is the most diverse, most bombastic, most powerful snare drum that I have ever played. I am still amazed by the overall performance of this drum. I first used it in my progressive thrash band and got all the finesse and volume I needed out of it for all those fast fills between snare, toms, and bass. Then, I used it in my metalcore band and got all the power needed for any blast beat or breakdown. Finally, I've used it in my high school's jazz band. I got the presence and ambience needed for brushwork during a ballad, I got the tasteful pop needed for swing and finally the strong bite needed for funk. As I said in my title, this snare is as diverse and unique a snare drum as you will find. Once again, Tama hits a home run.
