Tama 5.5 x 14 Hammered Bronze Snare Drum Reviews 5

I bought this unit at a local music store, and I was able to get it for $275. This model also has the Mighty Brass Hoops.

This is an amazing drum, it is loud, the rim shots are loud, and i was able to make it sound exactly like I wanted it. It is a very sensitive snare, and is slightly warmer than other bronze snares. The 10 lugs let u get very fine tuning, it is very easy to tune (meaning that the lugs are easy to screw and unscrew), and it has a pretty good tuning range.

the only thing i didn't like was that, depending on the pitch u tune it, it can have an annoying ring, but that is to be expected with almost any snare drum, and can be fixed with a couple of sticks of moon gel.

Excellent all around construction and excellent quality.

Amazing snare, could, depending on the heads and tuning, possibly be used in many different types of music, but fits any kind of rock, metal, or anything loud very well. I love this snare and would recomend trying it out to anyone.
