TAMA's new Sound Lab Project (S.L.P.) 5.5 x 14 Vintage Hammered Steel addition to the S.L.P. line capitalizes on Tama's decades of experience as builders of great steel snares. The hammering process on the 1.2mm steel shell adds a dark tonal complexity,with a drier, more articulate tone. While some steel drums can sound excessively ringy, the hammered shell and 2.3mm Sound Arc hoops work together to focus overtones and produce a tone that cuts with articulation, but still produces enough overtones that allow the true nature of this drum to sing. The 20-strand Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Steel Snappy Snares deliver the perfect amount of sensitivity and snare response for this drum.In order to provide a more crisp and sensitive sound, Tama redesigned their snappy snare using new materials, customizing the shape of the plate, and changing the wire coils' winding pattern. As a result, the new snares fits more closely to the resonant head, providing more greater sensitivity and a consistently crisp sound.
A luxurious satin chrome finish sets this snare apart from other hammered steel snare drums on the market. Silky-smooth tension rods make subtle tuning changes a breeze, letting you dial in just the right amount of tension for perfect tone every time. Ideal snare drum for fussy drummers wanting a classic looking snare drum that responds to all playing styles.
