What We Think

The Tama Star Reserve Hand-Hammered Copper Snare Drum has a 1.5mm copper shell that provides optimal resonance and sustance. This drum features 2.3mm customized Brass Hoops specifically for this drum to enhance tone. Tama utilizes a varitey of hammering sizes which provides fatness and resonance as you’ve never heard from a metal snare.The linear drive strainer with calibrated ratchet style tension adjustment knob makes precision tuning simple. The Tama Star Reserve Copper snare includes super sensitive hi-carbon snappy snares and a detachable butt plate for quick snare and head changes.

Manufacturer's Description from Tama

The STAR Drums series' first metal snare features a hand hammered copper shell. In addition to a mid-low end with tons of volume, the hand hammered shell creates a deeply harmonic overtone. A slightly smaller diameter hammer is used on the edge of the shell compared with the hammer that is used on the center, causing the shell to take a barrel shape.
This unique shape provides a fat sound and rich resonance. To complement the shell, we used our original 2.3mm brass "Customized Flanged Hoop". The edge of this hoop is slightly shaved down compared to our standard flanged hoop, producing a sharper and brighter attack. The combination of these two different characteristics – warm, rich resonance with sharp, bright attack - offers a totally new and original sound, unlike any other metal snares.
