The TAMA ‘Metalworks’ line of five different Steel Shell, Low-Priced Snare Drums fills every need and for under $150.00 !! Get yours from Sam Ash Direct for the lowest price with fast, Free Shipping!

This Metalworks 5-1/2”x14” snare drum is the size that most drummers consider to be the most versatile and always appropriate snare drum. It is tunable over a broad range, full of bright and cutting attack and projection with good depth and fullness of tone. It’s loud, too! A great second snare drum for back-up and alternate sounds at this low price, it will also make a very good full-time snare for drummers on a budget.

TAMA Metalworks !

Slightly thicker than typical steel shell snares , the 1.2mm steel shells allow the Metalworks snare drums to perform at their maximum potential. A black nickel finish creates a unique, industrial look that's the perfect visual match for the sound of steel and will look good with a drum set of any finish.

Five different sizes provide choices for a wide range of applications. They range from the large, rock and big band-style 6-1/2”x14”, the most versatile 5”x14”, two different piccolo snare sizes in the 4”x14” and 5-1/2”x12”, and the little “popcorn snare” 5-1/2”x10” that comes with the Tama MC69 single drum attachment that you can use to hang the 10” snare from another stand as a specialty or effect snare drum.

All of the snare drums feature strong, triple-flanged hoops, a precise and dependable snare throw-off and low-mass dual lugs (8 lugs for the three 14” diameter snares, 6 lugs for the 12” and 10” snares). The 6-1/2” x14”, 5”x14” and the 5-1/2”x12” snare drums also feature a “beaded” shell design with a raised bead that runs around the center of the shell. This design feature, found on a number of very successful and classic metal shell snares, gives the shell additional strength and guarantees its perfect roundness while also fine-tuning the drums resonance.

The TAMA Metalworks line gives drummers on a budget, a low-priced but high quality snare drum for any kind of music and are inexpensive enough to add as an alternative snare sound to what you are already playing, to expand your arsenal without needing to spend a lot of money.
