What We Think

The Tama SLP Bold Spotted Gum is part of the growing Sound LabProject or SLP for short. The SLP series of drums brings the best of the best in terms of sound and building materials at very reasonable prices.

The Spotted Gum is destined to be a quick favorite for players that love new sounds. The spotted gum is indigenous to Australia and has a softer frequency response on the high side that will sit well in many playing applications. The new Mighty hoops provide a nice focus that we loved and the ten tube lug configuration delivers a full-bodied note. Rimshots are solid and backbeats are a thing of beauty with this drum. Another feature that we loved is the Linear Piston Strainer which is typically used on the Starclassic Bubinga snare drums. It's super smooth action coupled with the removable butt snare allows for changing heads without adjusting your snare wire settings.

The spotted gum's beautiful grain patterns coupled with its sonic characteristics give this drum remarkable sensitivity with profound depth whether you are playing dynamically or aggressive.  Give the Tama SLP Bold Spotted Gum a listen and we're sure you'll love it just as much as we did.

Manufacturer's Description from Tama

The LSG1465 offers an extremely dry and solid sound without sacrificing the deeper low end. A Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon snare wire provides a crisp and articulate snare sound.

The Tama name is derived from the first name of founder Yositaro Hoshino’s wife, Tama Hoshino. "Hoshino" translates to "star field."

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.
