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 Kapur 13" x 7” model features a 6-ply, 6mm Kapur shell. Kapur produces a dry, vintage-type sound with enhanced warmth. This well-balanced sound quality makes Kapur at home in various genre of music styles. Tuned mid-high, the 13" x 7" size shell responds with a lively, popping tone that makes this snare particularly useful in Gospel, Funk and World styles.
The Sound Arc Hoop features an inward-curved, 2.3mm 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 Brown Kapur finish, durable carbon steel Snappy Snares, and eight MSL60s lugs. Silky-smooth tension rods make subtle tuning changes a breeze, letting you dial in just the right amount of tension for perfect tone every time.
