TAMA is on a quest to bring drummers a new sound in snare drums. A solid sound that features full projection with rich resonant tone, combined with fine, crisp snare response. In order to achieve this new sound, we have developed a concept that incorporates entirely new hoop, lug, and strainer designs, married to a variety of uniquely constructed drum shells.
STARPHONIC snare drums are the result of 3 years of detailed research and precise testing.
A symphony of sound springs to life from each STARPHONIC drum as a result of their combination of unique special features: naturally resonant shell materials, Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare wires, and a specially Grooved Hoop for a totally sharp but open sound.With so many years of drum building history, only TAMA could achieve such a new radical design and sound.
