Default [SNARE TEST] Hand Made Snare TAMBURO OPERA 14X6,5 Walnut Brown

Hello everybody,

I share a new snare test, this is my last snare I got. Tamburo Opera Hand made @ San Omero in Italy. This is an absolutely crasy snare ! You can play with a very large range of tension > so it's of the most versatile snare I got.

How it sounds :

Check Tony Liotta Playing on Tamburo Opera here :

Let's check the détails :

- 14x6.5 size
- Multilayer staves design shells
- Made with selected North American Maple and Finland Birch 7-ply / 7,5mm
- Epoxy resin rounded bearing edge
- Die-cast hoops
- EVANS drumheads
- Snare strainer “Ultrasensitive" TRULC
- 20 wires Tamburo snappy snare

Great looking snare drum. I'm a fan of Tamburo drums, but I'm a bit confused about the description of the staves. Are the staves made up of different plies?

I know your snare drum is going to sound fantastic, but I've got to be honest, I found the kit in the video to have a very flat sound. I'm not sure what heads he's using, but given the studio environment, & the fact that the kit was close mic'd, there's little depth in the sound capture.

I've heard Tamburo kits before, & they have a good balanced sound with nice lows, so I'm trying to think how they got this recording so thin.

Never mind, your snare looks fabulous, & I'm sure it sounds fabulous too!

Indeed this a multilayer staves shell, and is not a single ply snare. The maple wood is made in horizontal and reinforcement rings are made in Birch in vertical and recovered with an epoxy resin.This is a patent from Tamburo.

In the Video you can the drummer playing with black coated heads so it sounds pretty dry.
I have many snares and this is one of the best one I got even if it's pretty expansive.

Check by the way, the whole test of the Drumset here :

I agree, the sound in the video is quite flat, but I believe this is mainly due to the heads used. Actually, Tamburo Opera are definitely very responsive sets with remarkable tuning range, and their sound is generally very rich. I suggest to watch other videos, like, e.g. this one with the grat Daniele Chiantese (the video has relatively bad sound, but it better shows how these drums can be tuned): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHw_SVIVKhE

On YouTube there are other Daniele Chiantese videos where he plays Tamburo Operas (e.g. the series recorded at the Bag Show in Paris). There are other two videos with a very young drummer that in my opinion demonstrate well the possibilities of these sets. Here is one of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBWeBQLVhG0
