Lug: MTL50
Hoop: Die-Cast Hoop (10 hole)
Strainer/Butt: MCS70A/MCS70B
Snare Wire: MS20SN14C

DYNAMIC BRONZE

The new Dynamic Bronze snare drum is quite unlike any of its Sound Lab siblings?and unlike most other Bronze snares as well. With a 1.2mm hairline Bronze shell and die-cast hoops, the S.L.P. Dynamic Bronze snare drum speaks with a sharp, clear attack and a rich tone to follow. This is an unusually aggressive and powerful instrument ? two qualities that aren't usually associated with Bronze snare drums. You'll still find plenty of Bronze's traditionally warm, dark character, but the addition of die-cast hoops help turn this drum into an entirely different animal. It can go from a whisper to a scream at the drop of a stick and back again with no problem. It's that rare blend of characteristics that inspired TAMA to put "dynamic" right in the name.
Suggested musical styles: Rock, Gospel & Studio

TAMA SLP Snare Drum Vintage Hammered Steel

LST1455H
Shell: 1.2mm Hammered Steel
Size: 5.5"x14"
Lug: MTL50
Hoop: Sound Arc Hoop (10 hole)
Strainer/Butt: MCS70A/MCS70B
Snare Wire: MS20RL14C

VINTAGE HAMMERED STEEL

This 5.5” x 14” snare is crafted of 1.2mm hammered steel shell. The hammered process adds tonal complexity, depth, and dryness to the sounds typically associated with TAMA's steel shell, which are bright and penetrating. The more complex tones are generated from the way sound waves asymmetrically reflect off the hammered shell texture.
Suggested musical styles: Rock, Country, & Funk

BLACK BRASS

Suggested musical styles: Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, & Progressive
