With upgraded hardware and powerful projection from a steel shell, the Tama S.L.P. Vintage Steel Snare is a far cry from a typical, add-on snare from a shell pack. This drum also has a wider tuning range and sounds great at the low or high end of the spectrum.
However, the innovations don't stop at the tone and appearance. Tama's work on identifying the ideal snare sound led them to develop the new hardware like the "Sound Arc" Hoops which add sustain and a fuller frequency response. Hearty brass tube lugs will ensure a long lifespan for your tension rods, as well as your tune. And finally, the Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Steel Snappy snares will emphasize needed punch and attack, as needed.
