Tama SLP G Bubinga Snare Drum

Warm sounds and robust low end are available on tap with the Tama SLP Bubinga Snare. Drummers of all styles will appreciate this snare's rich resonance.
Tama's on time with its snare line the G-Bubinga. This 12-ply 10mm Bubinga shell provides an extraordinarily punchy sound with a large helping of low-end. The combination of 2.3mm flanged hoops and low-mass separate lugs allow the Bubinga shell to resonate more naturally.

The snare drum is the keystone of any drummer's sound. At some point in the musical journey, the player will embark on a search for the perfect drum to enhance their sound. With that player in mind, they created the S.L.P. series.

"Tama SLP G Bubinga Snare Drum"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was looking for a great, wood, semi-dry sounding snare and I have found it with the Tama SLP G Bubinga Snare. First off, the looks of it is a thing of beauty. The black nickel hardware sets off the dark stained wood very nicely. The snare is striking to look at. Second, the sound is powerful, not overbearing and very versatile. My band plays a lot of styles from rock to blues to punk and it spoke strongly through it all. I replaced my heads with Evans Dry and snare side head, as I do with any new snare. Tuning was quite easy and with alittle Moongel, I was rocking it. This snare is quite heavy and you can tell it's made well. It's designed nicely and resembles the Starclassic series in a lot of ways. It's truly a great snare drum and I can see this being my main snare for a long time to come. It may be a tad dry for some, but after you hit it once and any reservations go out the window. This thing is a work of art! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
