For four decades Tama has been engineering a broad range of quality drums to fill the needs of drummers at all levels. Now, with their Soundworks series (previously only available on a limited-edition basis), great-sounding snares are available at an even greater value. Unlike similarly priced drums in this range, which can sound generic and lack a distinct personality, each Soundworks snare has a distinct sound profile suitable for specific genres. Evans heads, now standard, add a pro touch to the affordably priced line.
The Tama Soundworks Steel 10” x 5.5" model features a 1.2mm shell, which is slightly thicker than typical steel shells. The extra shell thickness delivers added volume and cut that allows this snare to project mini sonic explosions. 1.6mm triple-flanged solid steel hoops promote open and full tones. The Soundworks snare is rounded out with durable carbon steel Snappy snare wires and six MSL60S lugs. Silky-smooth tension rods make subtle tuning changes effortless, especially noticed when cranking up the tension. A single tom attachment and bracket is included for easy and convenient placement onto your kit.
