Tama Premium Marching Snare ?

Posted: Tue Sep 26, 2017 7:53 am



Would like to get opinion on these. I realize Pearl Marching snares seems to be the holy grail.

Tama offers 14x12, maple and bubinga/birch. I definitley like Tama's gut frame.

Wondering if anyone has experience playing Tama, and why maple vs. bubinga/birch?

I don't know much about the sound of them, but one thing I've heard from many people is that they're heavy as hell. Not a problem if you just using it for solo playing, but if you're considering it for a line that might be a point of interest

I did some research last night and they seem to sound pretty good. The guys at Vic Firth use one for most of their videos and it sounds pretty nice. Beyond that I haven't found too much but if you're just looking for a solo snare Tama should do just fine. I don't know all the ins and outs of why the drum is made the way it is, and I don't know about how it sounds with different heads or tuning, but there's my two cents.

ive played on them. They honestly sound nice and feels great, if tuned well, not super reefed. I've only played with Remo heads on it too. the drum itself isn't particularly heavy. you'll get a good sound as a solo player tho. for a drumline, that's a different story. Also, the stand is a pain in the ass, it's waaaay too complicated and heavy and bulky and just terrible...use a basket stand if you want easier use.
