ITEM DETAILS :
The Tama Imperialstar snare drum is punchy, poppy, and very affordable! The shell is made out of 6 plies of 100% poplar to a total thickness of 7.5mm. The chrome nickel hardware is a little more edgy than your standard chrome, pairing well with the available finishes.
Precisely cut bearing edges let the drum ring wide open and get great sensitivity from light playing, and it makes the snare easy to tune. Lugs on Imperialstar drums are 10% smaller than the old Swingstar models, further boosting shell resonance.
This model’s dimensions sound best at mid-to-high tunings.
