From Our Research Team:
Put Sonic Steel in Your BackbeatTAMA's S.L.P. Sonic Steel 6.5" x 13" snare drum is an ear-opener. When tuned high this snare delivers a remarkably tight, precise punch that'll cut through the densest of mixes. Tune it lower, and you infuse an impactful, husky bark without losing definition. It's even got a great cross stick - unusual for a 13". Given its amazing versatility, the Sonic Steel snare drum is ideal for a wide range of musical genres, including modern gospel, hip hop, reggae, punk, R&B, and classic funk. If you're looking for a versatile, incisive-sounding snare sound, this is it: TAMA's S.L.P. Sonic Steel snare drum.
TAMA S.L.P. Sonic Steel 6.5" x 13" Snare Drum at a Glance:
TAMA's S.L.P. Series
TAMA's Sonic Steel 6.5" x 13" snare drum is part of TAMA's S.L.P. (Sound Lab Project) Series. Your snare drum is the cornerstone of your kit - something you certainly want to get right! But with so many snare drums to choose from, it can be a major headache to find the ideal one to compliment your drumming style. S.L.P. is all about helping you to zero-in on your perfect snare drum. TAMA didn't only use different shell materials for its S.L.P. Series snare drums; they took it a step further and experimented with different snares, hoops, and lugs. The result? Each drum has its own distinct personality. And "personality" is what a great snare sound is all about.
TAMA's Sonic Steel
If you play gospel, hip hop, reggae, punk, R&B, or funk, you'll find that TAMA's 6.5" x 13" Sonic Steel snare drum sits right in the pocket. This drum's 1.2mm steel shell delivers a wide range of sound - including a great cross stick sound you might not expect from a 13" snare drum. The Sonic Steel snare drum's impressive responsiveness and sensitivity let you power your backbeat with a tight, punchy voice.

Finally my perfect snare.
by Connor Guiberteau from Lafayette, LAThis thing is a monster. I play in a ska-punk/ reggae band and this snare is just perfect for my sound. Even the stock head on this thing is a Evans G1, it's amazing.
