Black Brass!
By using a relatively thick, 1.5mm Brass shell, the S.L.P. Black Brass model provides fat and powerful sound combined with the warm resonance that brass is known for. . A 2.3mm flanged bearing edge adds to the open sound, and a 42-strand Snappy Snares adds a crisp, distinct and desirable buzz that stands up to heavy playing.  

Not only the brass shell but also the hoops, lugs and snare strainer are finished in black nickel plating and the drum looks fantastic, as powerful a look as it sounds and it will look great behind any finish of drum set.                  

Suggested musical styles: Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, & Progressive music

Part of the great new Sound Lab Project of snare drums from TAMA!

TAMA’s “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.
The Sound Lab Project comprises three different maple shell snare drums and one of bubinga.  There are two steel shell snares, one of aluminum and one of brass.  Each of these snare drums features its own customized and unique design and one of them could be your best snare drum and at a relatively low price for a snare drums of this quality!

Best snare out there, love it!


I am currently using the black brass to play cover gigs locally in the LA area. This drum has a nice wet snap to it and does not take a lot to be heard mic'd or not mic'd. I'm selling some of my snares from my collection as I know this is not going anywhere for a while. Single ply UV1 on batter side and sounds phenomenal. Such a great feel to it and a tremendous value!
