Each snare possesses a distinct personality that’s well suited to a particular genre. S.L.P. is an ideal option for discerning drummers looking to add a fresh voice to their arsenal at a lower price point that allows for sonic experimentation.

The new 6.5” x 14” G-Walnut model features a 10-ply, 9mm thick Walnut shell. A newer and distinctive voice in modern drum making, Walnut produces a rich and low fundamental pitch that lies between the warm balance of Maple and immense depth of Bubinga. The thicker shell is capable of producing a brighter tone than standard-ply Walnut drums, and increases sonic presence and punch.  Highly dynamic, the G-Walnut is capable of articulating nuance-laced, low volume stickings in one moment, then screaming with an abandoned roar the next moment.  

The newly developed 30-strand Snappy snare wires add a thicker snare sound than standard snare wires.The Sound Arc Hoop was specially developed for Tama's S.L.P series snare drums and feature an inward-curved, 2.3mm steel hoop that offers sensitivity, precise tuning, and control.

Solid Brass tube lugs complement the Matte Black Walnut finish for a clean and modern profile. Silky-smooth tension rods make subtle tuning changes a breeze, letting you dial in just the right amount of tension for perfect tone every time.

The snare drum is the keystone of any drummer's sound. Make your statement with the S.L.P. series from Tama!

Walnut Wow!


Was looking to buy the maple or bubinga snare , till I started researching this walnut snare from Tama...Watching and listening on line to several demo's and reviews, I finally decided with the help of Adam, at Sam Ash Music. His opinions and recommends were greatly appreciated. After a short back order ,I recieved it...Very pleased, could not be happier. The build and looks went perfectly with my kit, ( after tweeking and adjusting) the bad A., snap ,crack andPop!!! . Thanks to Adam ,and folks @ SAM ASH , Can't stop playin !



I would buy this snare again


I bought this snare to use in a big band to have a deep brilliant sound and it performs well . I am in the process of tuning this drum to my needs. It came with a 30 wire snare which I think is a bit much for my purposes. I havent changed it yet to a 24 but I think I am going to. It has a great sound but loosens up quickly. Overall I like it a lot.
