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 Maple 12" x 5.5" model features a 6-ply, 5mm maple shell. The market standard hardwood shell offers its typical warm, open and balanced tone with full resonance. The 12” diameter and 5.5" depth are designed to produce super-quick response with cracking attack when tuned in the upper range. The 5mm thickness and maple wood shell gives this drum added body and surprising versatility in medium to lower tuning ranges.
Tama quality and build throughout, this drum gives you a distinctive, extended-rangeauxiliary voice in your arsenal. The Sound Arc Hoop features an inward-curved, 1.6mm steel hoop that enhances the natural tone of the snare drum, and offers sensitivity, precise tuning, and control. The Soundworks snare is rounded out with a matte vintage Maple finish, durable carbon steel Snappy Snares, and six MSL60s lugs. Silky-smooth tension rods allow for easy tuning so you can explore the full potential of sounds this drum has to offer.
