Tama are known for innovating with uncommon woods to produce new sounds. The Tama SLP Satin Vintage Hickory 3pc 18" Shell Pack is no exception. With 100% American hickory shells, you can expect a clear, crisp sound with a warmth similar to maple.
To ensure the hickory qualities are heard, Tama fitted their 2.3mm Steel Mighty Hoops to allow the ideal amount of resonance and accented highs to come through. This makes it a great, popping snare with unique characteristics from the hickory shell. Evans G1 coated drum heads ensure quality sound out of the box.
To ensure maximum resonance, the rack tom is fitted with the Direct Flexi-Mount. This is designed to allow some horizontal play when striking the drum, thus controlling shell vibration while allowing it to resonate more freely that a traditional mount. The result is a naturally smooth sustain and decay intrinsic to the character of the hickory shell.
With this jazz-style setup, Tama suggests Jazz, blues, country & funk as ideal genres for this kit.
