Combining Birch and Bubinga is one of Tama's signature sound recipes, so now that magic combination gets a representative in the Sound Lab Project snare line. Baring a beautiful exterior ply of naturally finished white oak, the S.L.P. Backbeat makes a stunning centerpiece. But, the drum's best qualities stem from the Bubinga Birch blend inside. Marrying the rich, dark tonality of three inner Bubinga plies with the cracking projection of four Birch outer plies, this snare matches remarkable sensitivity with profound depth as greater striking pressure is applied.
