The Tama S.L.P. snare drums have become a staple for many modern drummers. The Tama S.L.P. range has a diverse selection of different types of snare drums that sound great and won’t break your bank.

Let’s take at the new additions for 2021. 

What are Tama S.L.P. snare drums?

The Tama Sound Lab Project (S.L.P.) snares have been designed to give drummers a wide range of snare drums with professional-grade features at an affordable price. Much like the Tama Starclassic Performer drum kits.

These snares aren’t your average snares though. They feature exotic materials not always found on snare drums and come in a range of different sizes. 

These snares stand out and there is bound to be something that will pique your interest. 

New snare drums for 2021

Every year Tama is mixing up the options available in the great line of S.L.P. snare drums. 2021 is no different. Let’s take a look at the new additions for this year. 

Tama S.L.P. Dynamic Bronze 14″x4.5″

Let’s start with this eye-catcher. The aged patina finish makes this snare stand out from in bronze counterparts. Due to this finish, each snare is unique. 

Tama S.L.P. Dynamic Bronze

The combination of a shallow drum (4.5″) and a thick shell (1.2 mm) gives you a snare that has a strong attack with a firm crack yet a lot of sensitivity. This makes the snare very dynamic and great for a range of musical applications. 

Features:

  • Size – 14″ x 4.5″
  • Shell – 1.2mm bronze with an aged patina finish
  • Hoops – Die-Cast Hoop (8 holes)
  • Snare wires – 20 strands Starclassic Hi-Carbon Steel Snare Wires

Have a listen to what Tama has to say.

Tama S.L.P. Maple Snare, Satin Figured Maple 14″ x 4.5″ 

This is a beautiful maple snare that features a satin figured maple finish, allowing the natural grain of the wood to shine through.

This features everything that drummers love about maple snares combined with Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Steel Snare Wires. This gives you a full-bodied sound with a crisp and fast response.

Features:

  • Size – 14″ x 4.5″
  • Shell – 7mm / 7ply Maple + 1 outer ply Figured Maple
  • Hoops – Die-Cast Hoop (8 holes)
  • Snare wires – 20 strands Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Steel Snare Wires

The last thing to mention is that these are being produced in limited numbers. When they are gone they are gone!

With the S.L.P. G-Maple snare you are getting a thick and deep drum with a classic snare look. This drum features an outer ply of white oak that looks stunning.

Final thoughts

I am a huge fan of these Tama snare drums. Especially the S.L.P. Dynamic Bronze, this is a real standout. 

If you are looking for a new snare the S.L.P. range from Tama is a great option. Amazing snare without the massive price tag. What else could you want?

I’ve been playing the drums for over 15 years and I still love them! I am mostly a metal drummer but I am currently working on groove and applying rudiments to the kit!
