The new Tama Dynamic Bronze Snare Drum is quite unlike any of its Sound Lab siblings—and unlike most other Bronze snares as well. With a 1.2mm hairline Bronze shell and die-cast hoops, the S.L.P. Tama Dynamic Bronze Snare Drum speaks with a sharp, clear attack and a rich tone to follow. This is an unusually aggressive and powerful instrument – two qualities that aren't usually associated with Tama Bronze Snare Drums. You'll still find plenty of Tama Bronze's traditionally warm, dark character, but the addition of die-cast hoops help turn this Tama drum into an entirely different animal. It can go from a whisper to a scream at the drop of a stick and back again with no problem. It's that rare blend of characteristics that inspired Tama to put "dynamic" right in the name.
