Take a look at pictures inside the drum.
8 plies of maple, innermost ply is steel.
Excuse me for saying ply and not 1mm. I knew what I meant.
Ok so I just won an auction for a 6x14 Tama Starclassic G snare drum to add to my collection. What am I in for? I normally use metal, Pearl Sensitone 5.5x14, or 6.5x14 Ludwig Supraphonic, on occasion I will use a 5.5x14 Magstar Maple snare. I thought I would try a little deeper wood drum on some gigs.
I have no reason why I switch it up sometimes, mostly to keep things interesting and spark some new ideas. It's not like I'm recording, just live gigs.
What can you Tama guys tell me about this drum?
Hi Scotty, thanks for the reply. I never owned a Tama snare. I was a bit skeptical because no one else bid on the drum. I made the first offer and I got it. The seller has a great selling score but is not a music dealer. It's a gamble, I will see what the drum is all about in a few days. My guess is the person he got the drum from told him it was a starclassic. The add said special custom paint job and a logo that read Logo's Drums.
What difference does the die cast hoop make as opposed to triple flanged?
