The Tama SLP G-Bubinga Snare Drum is a great example of what the SLP Series Snare Drum concept is all about. The combination of Bubinga shell, 20-strand Starclassic Carbon Steel Snappy Snares and Steel Mighty Hoop results in an extraordinarily punchy sounding drum with a generous helping of low-end.
The 12ply/10mm Bubinga shell with quilted Bubinga outer ply is complemented by a natural quilted Bubinga finish with black nickel hardware, giving the TAMA SLP snare a striking look.
“Distinctive, beautifully built set of snares covering just about every musical genre.”
TAMA’s SLP Series is the result of an extensive research and development process which led to a varied offering of SLP shell materials. Thickness and specific parts were experimented with to find each shell’s sonic potential.
