Most will probably tell you the Sakae is better but I don't know how unless it's a seamless shell. The Tama is very nice.Wondered which is better build quality - Tama SLP Black Brass Snare Drum, 4x14 or the Sakae 14x4 Brass Black Snare?
I can get either new for maybe $340...which is better overall sound, build, value/worth?
Wouldn't it be the other way around? Only real drum nerds know of Sakae, while every teen metal dude wants a Tama!HOWEVER.. for the re-sale value the Sakae probably will hold up a little better just because it's not a common name like Tama.
