Overview

The magic tonal fusion of birch and bubinga is now represented in the Tama Sound Lab Project line. Bearing a beautiful exterior ply of matte-finished white oak, the Tama S.L.P. Backbeat Snare makes a stunning centerpiece. But, the drum's best qualities stem from the bubinga birch blend inside. Marrying the rich, dark tonality of three interior Bubinga plies with the cracking projection of four Birch out plies, this snare matches remarkable sensitivity with profound depth as greater striking pressure is applied.

    Comments about TAMA S.L.P. Backbeat Bubinga Birch Snare Drum:

    This snare drum sounds great. Good crack when tuned medium to high. This is not a lacquer finish, but rather a wrap (technically a glass glitter wrap not sparkle). There are some quality control issues, particularly a large groove cut out of the outer ply, and into the second ply. This appears to be how Tama glues their wrapped finishes, but it looks terrible when you remove the heads. Does not appear to affect the bearing edge, as it stops just below the highest point of the edge, but why design a drum this way? Also, there is a gap where the wrap overlaps leaving 1/16" of exposed wood near the batter side edge. Otherwise it looks and sounds great. Way better than the cheap imported OCDP snares. Get some lug locks, because the tuning rods will de-tune if you lay into the rim. My new go to studio snare and also great for live gigs too.

    Very nice drum for price point. Tuned for a nice deep crack. Also has two micro snare tuners. Outstanding drum.
