The Tama SLP Vintage Snare is constructed from hammered steel, delivering an overly bright tone that has a powerful cut that can penetrate through any sound it’s put up against. The steel also provides an excellently long sustain to help create a big tone and provides the snare drum with a distinctive rimshot sound that is satisfyingly sharp.
Tama's Sound Arc flanged hoops emphasise the great sound the snare emits, featuring inward curving rims that are gentler on the hands than regular hoops when playing rimshots. They give the snare its classic open tone and are bent inward to allow the tone of the hammered steel shell shine.
Tama's Sound Lab Project series is an extremely versatile series of snare drums, designed to include a snare for every drumming situation so that you can find the perfect drum for your specific needs. Tama spent years researching what it takes to make a great snare drum, testing out a range of different components to see just what can be achieved. The SLP series includes drums of a wide range of different materials and sizes, including 4 wood drums, and 4 metal drums, all offering unique features and sounds. Tama believe that the snare drum is the keystone of any drummer's sound, which is why the SLP series was designed to help drummers enhance their own sound.
