Tama BS136BNNCD Starclassic Bubinga 6x13" Snare Drum (Natural Cordia)
Cordia takes an encore! Over 25 years ago, Tama was one of the first drum companies to offer exotic wood finishes, and in 1983, cordia made its debut as part of the prestigious Artstar (birch) drum line. Since that time, and especially in the last two years, Tama players have called constantly for cordia’s return to the stage. Well, cordia is back, better and more beautiful than ever. Rather than its original pairing with birch, Tama combined cordia with bubinga to create a drum of both truly awesome sound and great looks. The 100% bubinga shell offers a powerful attack and a rich full resonance that has enlisted an impressive and growing number of adherents in every genre.
- Die-cast hoop with 8 holes provides sound with projection and allows hi-tension tuning
- 100% bubinga construction with cordia outer ply
- MUS80A strainer and MUS80B butt
- Hold Tight™ washers prevent loosening of the lugs while playing
When you move the lever to the on position, the lever simultaneously locks at the highest tension position—the lever won't slip to the off position even on the loosest tension settings. The MUS80A is totally secure when you want it on—and easy to switch off when you want it off.
Here's a new idea that will be applauded by drummers and techs alike. The MUS80B not only allows subtle snappy snare adjustments, you can change your snare side head without removing the snare wires. Just loosen two screws and the snare wires easily detach from the butt. Reattachment—with your original set-up intact—is just as simple.
Hold Tight™ Washer
The Hold Tight™ washer is a totally unique invention: a non-loosening washer! Its cup-shaped stainless steel washer contains a rubber ring so the tension rod pushes both the cup washer and the rubber ring. Normally, vibrations will eventually loosen the tension rod. But the softness of Hold Tight's rubber ring keeps it in contact with both the tension rod and the hoop at all times and maintains friction between them so that tension is always preserved.
