Tama PMM146 Starphonic Maple 14"x6" Snare Drum in Satin Mappa Burl
The combination of Maple's open, resonant sound with the Grooved Hoop and super sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy gives this drum a rich, opne, crisp sound reminiscent of prized vintage snares.
The first factor Tama focused on to achive a new snare drum sound was the effect of hoop. So, they carefully studied the evolution of the hoop over time. In doing so, they came up with an idea that combines vintage design and modern technology. That idea is the essence of the totally new "Grooved Hoop." By looseing the tension rods, you can tilt the claw hooks backwards and away from the Grooved Hoop. This quick release system offers simple, speedy replacement of drum heads without having to take all of the tension rods out of the lugs.
The shape of the bearing edge is one of the most important factors which affect drum sound. Because the derumheads provide the important source of vibration, the shape of the contact point of the head and shell determines and defines the sound. This is why TAMA has worked so extensively on achieving the most functional shape for the drum head and edge.The angle of the top edge is set 2.5mm inside from the outer surface of the shell. The edge is cut to a round colllar so as to follow the natural shape of the drumhead. This design which creates a better fit between the drumhead and bearing edge, maxmized the resonance of drum. This bearing edge shape is part of our TAMA tradition and is crucial in providing TAMA's unique drum sound.
