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 14” x 6” model features a 6-ply, 6mm Kapur shell. Kapur produces a vintage-type dry sound with an abundance of low-end warmth. The warm fundamental tones and excellent sensitivity give this snare its personality and allows it to thrive in acoustic and amplified music settings. 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 that will blend in with an array of drum set finishes, durable carbon steel Snappy snare wires, and ten 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.
