New Limited Edition Starphonic Snares



New snares for 2012 and 2011
Like many creative acts, drum design sometimes starts with a question. As we thought about our new snare line, the Tama designers asked: Could we build drums that featured the forward-thinking innovative hardware features that Tama is known for into an instrument that brought to mind the sound and feel of the vintage snares of yesteryear that we admired? Three years and dozens of experiments later Starphonic was born. Smart features like the Grooved Hoop the Bearing Edge Construction that contribute to delivering the sonic goods. Busy pros also fall in with love Starphonic’s intelligent utilitarian advances, like the Freedom Lug and the detachable butt plate that make for blazing fast drum head swap-outs. Not to mention that each these snares looks as good as it sounds…



New 2012 Starclassic Bubinga and Maple Finishes



All you avid observers of drum finish fashion (you know who you are) will remember that last year, 2011, was a bold step into the creative wilderness for the Tama designers. Dimensional finishes like Volcanic Red Burst were so complex that we had to utilize our 360° view technology because it was the only way to do them justice. 2012 seems to be about clarity and solid fundamentals. These new finishes express that same solid simplicity



TAMA's On Time With A New Snare Line



Introducing TAMA SLP - Sound Lab Project
