This is a whole lot of snare for not a whole lot of cash. Don't miss your opportunity to get your hands on a Bubinga Birch snare at an unbelievable price.

Combining Bubinga and Birch is one of Tama's signature recipes when it comes to shell construction. It is this same design that has helped propel the Starclassic to the top of the market. After numerous requests from fans and artists alike, the Sound Lab Project series now offers a Bubinga Birch snare. With a beautiful exterior ply of naturally finished white oak, the S.L.P. Backbeat is just as visually stunning as it is musically. But, the drum's best qualities stem from the Bubinga Birch blend inside. Marrying the rich, dark tonality of three interior Bubinga plies with the cracking projection of four Birch outer plies, this snare is remarkably sensitive while still have a profound depth that's great for rock or other forms of heavier music.

Tama “Sound Lab Project” Snare Drums:
The snare drum is the keystone of any drummer's sound. At some point in the musical journey, the player will embark on a search for the perfect drum to enhance their sound. With that player in mind, Tama created the S.L.P. “Sound Lab Project” series.

Tama’s extensive research and development process led to a varied offering of S.L.P. shell materials, thickness (and number of plies of the wood shells) and the specific parts were experimented with to find each shell material’s full sonic potential. Each of these snare drums features its own customized and unique design and could very well become your best snare drum

8mm shell features 3 inner plies of Bubinga and 4 outer plies of Birch for a warm, sharp tone with tons of attack and depth
White Oak outer ply with matte finish gives this snare a look that just as beautiful as it's sound
Chrome plated brass tube lugs decrease the surface weight on the shell, improving resonance and projection
Triple-flange Mighty Hoops deliver a warm open sound as well as a sharp defined crac

    Comments about Tama Limited Edition ‘S.L.P.’ Backbeat Bubinga Birch 7"x14" Snare Drum:

    I am a performance and recording drummer. I use a variety of snares and tunings depending genre. I play a custom built stave constructed Bubinga drums set. They provide great attach and warm tones, ideal for recording (TAMA Bubinga...WOW). I was looking for a signature sounding snare, the TAMA Backbeat Bubinga snare had that sound. The difference of TAMA's new SPL snare is the way it is crafted combining various wood plies that set this snares sound apart...Brilliant tone, attack while having a smooth sustain. I wanted a snare that would keep up at a lower tuning, it does, this snare is loud and stands out in any drum performance.

    It ship with the Evans G1 Coated, I personally prefer the ST Dry coated head.
