Product Description

The 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 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.

Tama’s Sound Lab Project (S.L.P.) snare drums were designed to introduce drummers to a variety of new and exciting sounds—at an affordable price. Each snare possesses a distinct personality that’s well suited to a particular genre. S.L.P. is an ideal option for discerning drummers looking to add a fresh voice to their arsenal at a lower price point that allows for sonic experimentation.

The snare drum is the keystone of any drummer's sound. Make your statement with the S.L.P. series from Tama!

Product Review

This snare has both quality and sound. There's nothing I can think of negative to say about it. Even the Evans G1 head was stellar. Way to go Tama and AMS!
