This Versatile Ash Snare Cuts Through

The cutting crack of the TAMA Star Stave Shell snare drum comes courtesy of its 10mm ash shell, constructed from 16 individual staves. The tone has plenty of attack and a quick response, as well as excellent articulation on softer strokes. Between the custom snare bed shape, projection-enhancing air holes, and ultra-lightweight lugs, the TAMA Star Stave Shell snare is a versatile drum indeed. And TAMA's Linear-Drive Strainer prevents snare-wire "slap" even when you engage it rapidly - a feature Sweetwater drummers love. For a great-sounding snare that's ready for any session or performance, the TAMA Star Stave Shell snare drum is a great choice.

TAMA Star Stave Shell Snare Drum at a Glance:
  • Brighter, drier tone from strategically placed air holes
  • Linear-Drive Strainer for fast snare changes
  • Custom snare bed shape for crisp and articulate tone
Brighter, drier tone from strategically placed air holes

Take a look at the shell of the TAMA Star Stave Shell snare, and you'll find three air holes around the perimeter. These help enhance projection in all directions and also give this snare drum a brighter, drier sound. Whether you leave it dry or drench it in reverb in the mix, this snare tone sets a great foundation for your core drum sound.

Linear-Drive Strainer for fast snare changes

When you're engaging and disengaging your snare wires in the middle of a song, you definitely don't want to hear the snare wires slapping against the bottom of the drum, and that's why Sweetwater drummers love TAMA's Linear-Drive Strainer. It prevents snare wire slap and is also amazingly smooth and precise. This strainer also prevents snare wires from loosening via a rachet system on the tension adjustment mechanism.

Custom snare bed shape for crisp and articulate tone

With the Star Stave Shell snare drum, TAMA deviated from their traditional snare bed shape. Their goal was vibrant resonance combined with enhanced definition and articulation. They accomplished this by giving this snare bed a flat bottom that offers more even and consistent contact with each snare coil. The result is a dynamic, musical snare drum that sounds great from your softest strokes through your hardest.

TAMA Star Stave Shell Snare Drum Features:
  • Bright, articulate snare drum with 10mm ash shell
  • Enhanced resonance, definition, and articulation thanks to a flatter snare bed shape
  • Linear-Drive Strainer prevents snare wires from slapping against the bottom drumhead when engaging
  • Enhanced projection from 3 strategically placed air holes
  • Lightweight 1-piece lugs give the drum shell more resonant, open tone
  • Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon snappy snare wires with custom winding pattern delivers crisp, expressive playability
The TAMA Star Stave Shell Snare is ready to be your workhorse snare drum.
