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 Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare fits closer to the snare side head, providing greater sensitivity and a brighter, crisper sound.
The first factor TAMA focused on to achieve a new snare drum sound was the effect of the hoop. So, They Carefully studied the evolution of the hoop over time. In Doing so, TAMA came up with an idea that combines vintage design and modern technology. That idea is the essence of TAMA's totally new "Grooved Hoop."
Non-Loosening Rubber Gasket
STARPHONIC's claw hooks have a rubber block inside to prevent the tension bolts from loosening during playing. Once the tension bolt is tightened, the claw hook is pressed towards the hoop. This also presses the rubber block inside the claw hook and adds pressure to the tension rod inside.
Ratchet Style Snappy Tension Adjuster
To prevent the snappy snares from loosening, TAMA incorporated a ratchet system on the strainer's tension adjustment mechanism. Much like an adjustment tool with fine gears, it achieves high-pressure retension, even with extreme settings. Single click adjustments offer a vertical pull of 0.083mm of wire motion, which allows you to achieve ltra sensitive micro-adjustments.
Freedom Lug & Claw Hook
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.
