Great Versatile Drum

I bought this drum because of it's ability to be tuned across a wide range of tunings. Right now I have very deep and FAT. However that required the use of a Remo ring but it sounds great. I've had up at a "normal" pitch and it is rich and warm with a nice crack when you get into the rim,Great in the studio. If you go on the Tama site they have video of each of SLP drums.Check them out. All the snares have an overtone or ring to them. Sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes not. But varying sizes of Remo Rings will partially to completely eliminate that overtone should you want to.I'm not a style over substance guy, but I must say this drum is a beautiful looking snare with the Black Nickel hardware,I've had more than one comment on how good it looks,Plan on replacing the batter head though.All drum companies ship their drums with the lowest line of heads,I just put a coated Ambassador on it and was good to go,
Music background: Played professionally in Vegas Main Rooms, toured with Wayne Newton (yeah I know) Junior Walker and the All Stars. Lola Falana, Eddie Russ (Europe) Started home studio approx 1984. Grew into Commercial studio in 1991, currently the longest studio in opera

Tama S.L.P. Series Snare - 6

Right off the bat this snare is great! When arrived I immediately replaced the heads. There's no way the stock head would survive. I am currently using this as my main snare. The versatility is endless. I tuned it medium that way it has pop along with the nice ring a snare should have. I have an auxiliary snare I tune to the moon but this one deserves better! This is by far one of the heaviest snare's I've ever owned, Which in turn causes it be real full and pronounced. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because a couple of the lugs lost a little coating when tuning and when you play a lot of outdoor venues in the summer the moisture hit's them and then there's surface rust. Not very attractive on this Beautiful Snare!

The Tama G-Bubinga snare drum combines plenty of power with a surprising amount of sensitivity, resulting in a snare that is incredibly versatile. It has become my go-to snare for all of my projects.
