Manufacturer's Description from Tama

Inspired by Simon's 'Monarch' Signature Snare Drum and STAR Drums, this anniversary snare features a unique Maple/Walnut/Maple shell construction with Sound Focus Rings, combining the warm sound of Walnut and the bright tone of Maple.

The drum also features a beautiful exterior ply of Bird's Eye Maple that adds a refined elegance to an already masterfully crafted drum. A specially designed badge and serialized inside sticker that includes Simon's autograph makes this snare drum even more exclusive. Only 100 pieces total will be produced for the worldwide market.


About Manufacturer

For over forty years, Tama has been an industry leader in professional drums and drum hardware. Their concerted effort to create high-quality products has given enthusiasts and professionals a wide variety of product options. 

The Tama name is derived from the first name of founder Yositaro Hoshino’s wife, Tama Hoshino. "Hoshino" translates to "star field." That's the origin of the star theme that unifies the entire Tama product line — from their entry-level Imperialstar drums and popular Starclassic series to their top-of-the-line Star series drums.  

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.
