What We Think

Measuring in at 5.5" x 10", this snare can technically be regarded as a mini-snare meant for auxilliary use. Indeed, the mounting bracket welded to the side makes installing this instrument to the left or right of your main snare a breeze. But don't let the diminutive size fool you: this drum can project! The 1.2mm steel shell offers a wonderfully bright and musical tone, even in lower tunings, while the triple-flanged hoops allow the drum to assert itself over whatever noise is happening around you. If you're looking for a bright, poppy tone color to add to your setup, either in an auxiliary or primary role, you should definitely consider this offering from Tama.

Tama's innovations can be found in their entry-level sets all the way up to their professional Star series drums. The Starclassic line has been producing premium shell drums like maple, birch, andbubingawith exquisite finishes for over two decades. Their patented Starcast Mount and Star Mount have continued to improve tone and aesthetics without sacrificing quality.

Their high-performance hardware has been one of the most trusted names for quality and durability since 1977 when they bought a portion of the Camco company. Today, the Iron Cobra and Speed Cobra lines have multiple options for players with a variety of needs. 

Whether you are after drums or hardware, Tama continues to be one of the best companies when it comes to getting the most for your money.
