Get Incredible Power With Instense And Warm Tone - The Tama Starclassic Maple 8"x14" Snare In Red And White Oyster Duracover Wrap

When selecting professional drums, you want an appearance as distinctive as the sound. The Tame Starclassic Maple snare drum combines incredible power with maple's intense and warm tone. Zinc die-cast hoops provide superior high-end "crack" and response.

Bearing Edge

The shape of the edge is one of the most important factors which affect drum sound. Because the drumheads 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.

Linear-Drive Strainer

The "Linear-Drive" strainer is designed for greater control of the lever adjustment arm and more precise control of the strainer's deployment motion. The strainer movement works in a true linear motion. Even if the strainer is engaged rapidly, you will not hear the typical "slap" of the snare wires hitting the bottom drumhead. To prevent the snare wires from loosening, this strainer also has a ratchet system on its tension adjustment mechanism. Single click adjustments offer a vertical pull of 0.083mm in wire motion, which allows for ultra-sensitive micro adjustments

Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snare Wire

In order to provide a crisper and more sensitive sound, we redesigned our snappy snare using new materials and customizing the shape of the plate and the wire coil's winding pattern. As a result of these modifications, the new Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare fits closer to the snare side head, providing greater sensitivity and a brighter, crisper sound.

Die-Cast Hoops

Made of die-cast zinc, TAMA's die-cast hoops deliver an incredibly sharp, solid rim shot that cannot be found in any other hoop.
