Awesome Snare for Rock and Metal!

TAMA's Sound Lab Project Black Brass snare drum gives you the deep, loud, and wonderfully warm sound of brass for a great low price. Built for serious regular use, TAMA outfitted the Black Brass snare with relatively thick, 1.5mm brass shell and a 2.3mm flanged Steel Mighty Hoop. These give you a wide open sound that cuts clearly through even extremely dense mixes. What's more, TAMA gave the Black Brass snare a 42-strand carbon-steel Snappy Snare, providing you with the buzz and snarl that's perfect for aggressive rock.

You can't go wrong with this snare. Tama never fails. Sounds great and even better when I added die cast hoops. This snare will not disappoint.

Great Snare Drum

I bought this drum to have some snare sound variety in my studio, and I am very pleased. It has a huge sound and a lot of character. I have tuned it to have a low, fat sound, as well as a high, snappy sound with great results.For my taste, the 42-strands were too much on the snare side. I replaced them with a lower number snare wire and love the sound. One thing to be aware of is that, because of the brass shell, there is naturally a significant amount of ring with each hit. If you do not want ring, a couple Moongels (or other dampening methods) are a quick fix. There is plenty of fat tone left to go around.
