Default Re: Show Off Your Tama.....SNARE DRUMS!!!

This snare is pretty plain, if understated in appearance. It's a 1978 Tama fiberstar "black fiberglass" snare drum. I ran across this gem at Donn Bennett's drum studio in Bellvue, Washington. It was sitting in the back on a shelf. He wants something to the tune of $600 for it.

It's one of the most overlooked and underrated snares ever made. It's very loud and cutting, and crisp.

I've got the Tama Artwood 5.5" by 14" in the same colour as Phillipe's I'll see if I can dig up some pictures of it.

Great snare.

This is too sexy man.

I have a humble 14x6,5 Rockstar snare. I really love it though, it's the only snare I know :-).

Some great looking stuff!!

I had a 6.5 ArtStar Maple snare in the 80's, but it never got the sound I had in my head, so I eventually sold it.

But it was a well made, very nice snare with the cool extended snare system and die cast hoops.

Okay here we go... YES, I know my drums are far too dusty. I didn't notice that until after the pics were taken and the drums were put up.

Mike Portnoy hammered steel 5 x 12 (MP125)
This is a great little snare. Very tight and poppy. I usually crank the heads pretty tight. The dual-setting strainer rocks. But with the head tension I use I also turn the snares off all the way and pound on it like a timbale.



Starclassic Performer Dark Cherry Fade 5.5 x 14
My favorite "all-around" snare I think.



Vintage 80's Superstar in Cherry Wine 8 x 14
This puppy is in awesome shape.



Kenny Aronoff Super Piccolo 4 x 15 (KA154)
A hard beast to tame. VERY ringy. I hate to use tape, and I can't find my Moongel pads.

next is The Pageant, but I'm out of money right now...
Philippe: Is the Simon Monarch bronze loud? How would you describe its sound?? It is sensitive, crisp, or better for loud playing?

All: Are the current Artwood Custom maple snares (7 ply maple) worth the purchase? I'm looking for a good 4x14 maple snare, and the Artwood comes in that size. I snagged a 4x14 SC maple snare off ebay, but the seller burned me: tension rods rusting and the bottom bearing edge has a small dent. The SC 4x14 is also an 8 lug snare for some reason; the Artwood is 10 lug.

Thanks.

Here are my two Tama snares: Stewart Copeland Signature (first generation--i.e., the throw on this snare differs from the current SC Sigs. in stores now) and 4x14 Starclassic Maple in Piano White lacquer (discontinued size):



(The new Tama SC Bubinga "Indigo Titanium Racing Stripe" finish also looks pretty nice, by the way. Perhaps I'll get a bubinga snare in this finish.)

There are some beautiful drums here!

I like em all.

I bought this two months ago. It had a Fiberskyn batter on it so I left it on.........I'm really liking it.

One little thing right now is that whomever put the little lugs on it used the wrong Mounting Screws (10mm instead of the required 14mm for a 10mm thick SC G Maple shell) on one of the lugs. I found a 10mm screw rattling around in the drum a couple of days ago.

Great sounding drum - lots of body and sensitivity - one of my best in the collection so far.......smiles.

I really like the Abalone inlay

I browsed this thread and was shocked to not see a Melody Master for a while, and then I saw the 12" steel one....

So I'll have to supply the thread with the other, the 14" maple (with one steel ply :P) Melody Master:



then a not so good picture lol

I've only ever talked to one guy who had the Albino Melody Master.... I don't know of any place that sells them. Portnoy hasn't used the Albino Monster since 2005 on the 20th Anniversary Octavarium tour so I doubt they're still around unless you're going to buy it on eBay or something somewhere.

To complete the hand-hammered steel collection posted on here, I have the 4" x 13" Hand-hammered steel soprano.

Day I bought her in-store - cell phone picture, excuse the quality.

Set up with my drumset

Loads of great snares in this thread. Heres mine

1. Tama 12x5.5 hand hammered steel. Someone has actually posted this already and it looks like they have a newer snare throw-off as the one on this is gash!! but is still sounds awesome.

2. 14x 5.5 steel in brushed nickel. Looks menacing.

3. My baby 14x4 maple starclassic picollo in dark cherry fade. Never stop using it....


They all need a clean!!

Take a look at pictures inside the drum.

8 plies of maple, innermost ply is steel.

EDIT:

Excuse me for saying ply and not 1mm. I knew what I meant.

I examined an early MP snare and I really don't remember it having metal inside. And the Tama site says nothing about it either.

Too weird.

That would be appreciated. It's not that I don't believe you, I just think it very strange that Tama wouldn't put that on their site for that specific model. And that I don't remember it.

I was looking for it too for proof but I didn't come up with anything either. I remembered reading it somewhere but this obviously isn't wood in the middle:



Sorry for the crappy phone pic, my camera is MIA at the moment.

I think I have 3 or so. Here is one. The others are in storage elsewhere. This is a nice drum. The others are just Starclassics.

Beautiful snare i am actually looking for one of those. Just 2 questions,
Did you change the snare wires?
Did you get that while they were in production brand new, or did you buy it off someone,
thanks

Is the "Pro Custom Copper" heavy like a Bell Brass or lighter?
