TAMA's S.L.P. Series

TAMA's Vintage Steel 5.5" x 14" 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.

Each drum has its own distinct personality. And "personality" is what a great snare sound is all about.
