TAMA BGS1465 Starclassic Bubinga 6.5x14 Inch Snare Drum - Black Clouds & Silver Linings


  • Tama Starclassic Bubinga: 14 x 6.5-inch snare drum This snare drum's shell is made of bubinga, an African wood type that is known for its warm sound and its emphasis on low frequencies. A total of nine plies of this wood were glued together to create the shell, which is 7 mm thick and has a 14-inch diameter and a depth of 6.5 inches. The result is a bright, warm-sounding snare drum with a relatively powerful and aggressive attack. Before they leave the factory, the Starclassic Bubinga snare drums are fitted with Evans drumheads. You even get a drum key included with your purchase!
  • Chrome hardware: All the hardware on this snare drum is chrome-plated. The die-cast hoops create a warm, balanced sound and they ensure that your drum stays in tune for a long time, a trait that is helped by the stainless steel Hold Tight cup washers with their rubber rings. These washers make sure that there's constant tension between the tension rods and the hoop, so that tension rods won’t come loose and tension is always preserved. Of course, a snare drum is not complete without a set of snare wires, and to give you an extra-bright snare sound, Tama fitted this Starclassic snare with their 20-strand Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare wires. Thanks to an improved design, these snare wires are in optimal contact with the resonant head, allowing for a clearer sound.
