STARPHONIC Bravura Concert Snare Drums CMP146MF
TAMA’s new Starphonic Concert snare drums feature 14”x6”, 7ply, 6mm Maple shells for a warm, versatile tone. Employing a 120° snare bed allows for a freely resonating bottom head and maximum snare response. Both are also equipped with TAMA’s Grooved straight hoops and Freedom lugs. With two different but very versatile snare assemblies, each offers plenty of tonal range to tailor the sound to the individual player’s preferences and performance needs.
The shape of the edge is one of the most important factors which affect drum sound. Because the drumheads provide the important source of vibration, the shape of the contact point of the head and shell determines and defines the sound. This is why TAMA has worked so extensively on achieving the most functional shape for the drum head and edge.
Picture shows a sectional view of the drum's bearing edge. As shown in Part A, the angle of the top edge is set 2.5mm inside from the outer surface of the shell. The edge is cut to a round collar so as to follow the natural shape of the drumhead (B). This design, which creates a better fit between the drumhead and bearing edge, maximizes the resonance of drum.This bearing edge shape is part of our TAMA tradition and is crucial in providing TAMA's unique drum sound.
Grooved Straight Hoop (US.PAT.NO.7825318)
Combines the tuning stability of a multi-flange hoop with the openness of a single-flange hoop. It also allows the player to have full access to the head’s playing surface.
Freedom Lug and Claw Hook (US.PAT.NO.7825318)
By looseing the tension rods, you can tilt the claw hooks backwards and away from the Grooved Hoop. This quick release system offers simple, speedy replacement of drum heads without having to take all of the tension rods out of the lugs.
Three Different Snare Wires
A unique combination of Nickel wound guitar strings, nylon coated Stainless
Steel straight wire, and hi-carbon coil snares, (6 strands of each) work together to promote a dynamic, vibrant response.
"Linear-Drive" Strainer (US.PAT.NO. 8017846)
STARPHONIC's strainer uses a "Linear-Drive" system, which we designed to provide greater control of the lever adjustment arm and more precise control of the strainer's deployment motion. Even if you move the arm rapidly, you will not hear the typical "slap" of the wires hitting the bottom head. The strainer movement is designed to work in a true "linear motion", similar to the motion found on "round sproket" drum pedals. Most strainers are not designed like this and tend to speed up right before the snare wires connect with the snare side head. Also, by tilting the angle of the butt plate 30 degrees, this design holds the snare wire cords or tape more firmly and reduces unnecessary pressure on the strainer and shell.
Long Tension Bolt
The long tension bolts protect the Multi Snare Frame when the drum is put down or not in use. It also prevents the assembly from being impeded in any way while the drum is being played.
Multi Snare Frame (US.PAT.NO.10565968)
The Multi Snare Frame holds the wires so they come straight off the bearing edge. This promotes maximum responsiveness. It also includes small adjustment wheels for fine tuning the three sets of wires.
