The Sound Lab Project G-Maple Snare Drum

This very thick 13-ply, 10mm Maple shell with a Tamo Ash outer ply, combined with rigid die-cast hoops and minimal contact brass tube lugs, creates a bright, powerful sound with surprising volume. The 13” diameter allows higher pitches to be tuned while the 7” depth keeps the sound full and fat.

The Tamo Ash outer ply reveals the complex grain structure of the wood and is a beautiful finish for this very distinctive snare drum. With the Sound Lab Project, TAMA is bringing us what are truly custom drum designs but come to us at more affordable prices.

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!

I love the sound and the perfect size



Best snare I've owned

Id buy and shop there again


Great product and awesome service





Great depth to the drum. Makes it versatile and suitable for any genre of music. The rim makes for great shots, and rim knocks. Quality of the shell is top of the line. Overall an amazing snare drum.



High tension beast!!!!


I've been playing 14in snares for years and wanted something with similar body but with more attack. So I decided on a 13x7 and liked other reviews I read for this drum. It looks awesome, but more importantly, it sounds amazing when tuned to a higher frequency (220-230Hz fundamental). I love this reasonably priced snare and my band mates soiled themselves when they heard it.
