A Whole Lotta Sounds from a Single Drum

The hallmark of a great snare is its versatility. The TAMA Starclassic Maple Snare has it all: heft, crack, bite, sensitivity, projection, punch - there's just not a tuning it sounds bad in. The all-maple shell evokes a pure tone that mikes well without excessive ringing. TAMA's Linear-Drive strainer holds the redesigned Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare wires close to the bottom head for good sensitivity at all dynamics. Hold Tight steel washers with soft rubber rings keep rimshots and vibrations from loosening your tuning. And for tone tweakers, the Starclassic Maple's detachable butt plate lets you remove snare wires and swap bottom heads without affecting your settings. If you're looking to pare down your snare collection, Sweetwater drummers recommend the TAMA Starclassic Maple for its wide range of great sounds.

TAMA Starclassic Maple Snare Drum Features:
  • All-maple shell sounds great at any tuning
  • Molten Brown Burst finish is unlike anything we've seen
  • Deluxe black nickel hardware
  • 8" x 14" size has dominating low end, especially tuned low
  • Plenty of crack and bite when tuned up
  • Die-cast hoops are crisp and projecting
  • Responsive Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snares fit close against the bottom head
  • Linear-Drive strainer reduces the "slap" of raising the snares
  • Hold Tight washers keep vibrations and rimshots from dropping tension
  • Detachable butt plate lets you swap out snare-side heads in a jiff
Get a multitude of tones from a single drum: the TAMA Starclassic Maple Snare!
