The Tama SLP 14 x 6.5 Black Brass Snare Drum is a great example of what the SLP Series Snare Drum concept is all about. The combination of a relatively thick 1.5mm brass shell 42-strand Carbon Steel Snappy Snares and a 2.3mm flanged Steel Mighty Hoop results in a fat open powerful sound that exhibits a distinct and desirable buzz. The 1.5mm brass shell is complemented by a black nickel finish with black nickel hardware giving the TAMA SLP snare a striking look. TAMA created the Sound Lab Project Series so that every drummer can find a snare drum to match their sound perfectly. With the Black Brass Shell Snare Drum with Black Nickel finish as the keystone in your kit you can call off the search.
