This Tama Metalworks snare features a 1.0mm matte black steel shell to deliver a bright, snappy sound and a durable construction.

Ready to withstand the wear and tear of constant play, this Tama snare drum is road ready to make sure you have a reliable set up from practice to performance.

Easy Snare Wire Adjustment

Newly-developed by Tama, the Mod-Tone system takes the form of a simple control knob on the side of the snare.

This control enables smooth and precise adjustment of snare wire tension, allowing you to fine-tune your sound to suit your needs.

Versatile Auxiliary Snare

Thanks to its small size and steel shell, the 8" x 3" Tama Metalworks snare provides a sharp crack with very short sustain.

Offering a tight, snappy response at high tunings and smooth resonance in lower tunings, this snare drum delivers a great range of tone.

The perfect addition to any percussion setup as an auxiliary snare, this is a versatile drum for the adaptable drummer.

Whether you need a clear, cutting accent of snare sound for reggae and electro or you want a deeper, more thudding sound source for hip-hop and funk applications, this snare is able to deliver both.
