TAMA'S ON TIME

  WITH A NEW SNARE LINE

The snare drum is the keystone of any drummer's sound. At some point in the musical journey, the player will embark on a search for the perfect drum to enhance their sound. With that player in mind, we created the S.L.P. series.

Backbeat Bubinga Birch

Combining Birch and Bubinga is one of TAMA' signature sound recipes. Now, this proven hybrid is available in the Sound Lab Project snare line. Baring a beautiful exterior ply of naturally finished white oak, the S.L.P. Backbeat makes a stunning centerpiece. But the drum's best qualities are its rich dark tonality, derived from its three plies of Bubinga, and the solid crack and projection of four plies of Birch.
Suggested musical styles: Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Progressive Rock & R&B

Matte Black Walnut (MBW) with Chrome hardware
Hoop: Sound Arc Hoop (10 hole)

Brass Tube Lug
Snare Wire: 30 Strand Regular Carbon Steel Snare Wire

G-Walnut

This 6.5" x 14" snare is constructed with an exceptionally thick 10-ply, 9mm thick 100% walnut shell. The use of walnut- known for its dark fundamental timbre - for this snare's thick shell, results in a deep, complex tone with exceptional attack and cut.

TAMA SLP Snare Drum G-Bubinga

LGB146NQB
Shell: 12ply/10mm, Bubinga shell with Quilted Bubinga outer ply
Size: 6 x 14"
Finish: Natural Quilted Bubinga with Black Nickel hardware
Hoop: Steel Mighty Hoop
Lug: Starclassic Lug
Snare Wire: 20 strand Starclassic Carbon Steel Snare Wires

G-Bubinga

TAMA is known for its mastery of Bubinga, and this 12-ply 10mm Bubinga drum is a stunning example of that expertise. 2.3mm flanged hoops, and separate low-mass lugs enable the shell to resonate more naturally, giving the G Bubinga an extraordinarily punchy sound with a large helping of low-end.

TAMA SLP Snare Drum Dynamic Bronze

LBZ1455
Shell: 1.2mm Bronze shell
Size: 5.5 x 14"
Lug: Brass Tube Lug
Hoop:Die-Cast Hoop
Snare Wire: 20 strand Starclassic Hi-Carbon Steel Snare Wire

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.

TAMA SLP Snare Drum Vintage Hammered Steel

LST1455H
Shell: 1.2mm Hammered Steel Shell
Size: 5.5"x14"
Hoop: Sound Arc Hoop (10 hole)
Lug: Brass Tube Lug
Snare Wire: 20 strand Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Steel Snare Wire

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.

TAMA SLP Snare Drum Black Brass

LBR1465
Shell: 1.5mm Brass shell
Size: 6.5 x 14"
Finish: Black Nickel plating with Black Nickel hardware
Hoop: Steel Mighty Hoop
Lug: Starclassic Lug
Snare Wire: 42 strand Carbon Steel Snare Wires

Black Brass

Working off of the natural characteristic of Brass, the Black Brass uses a relatively thicker 1.5mm Brass shell, and provides fat powerful sound with warm full resonance. A 2.3mm flanged hoop adds to the openness of its sound, and a 42-strand Snappy Snare gives it a distinct, desirable buzz.

Hoop: Steel Mighty Hoop
Lug: Hi-Tension Lug
Snare Wire: 20 Strands Starclassic Carbon Steel Snare Wire

Big Black Steel

The LST148 "Big Black Steel" snare fills the roll of the classic, heavy fisted, rock snare drum-and then some. It's husky 8" depth hardened Steel shell provides maximum power and volume, making it the idea choice for players who needs to cut through the crushing din of overbearing guitar amplification.
