The LSG1465 “Bold Spotted Gum” snare drum features Spotted Gum wood, a hard and high-density wood growing in the Oceania area of Australia. The LSG1465 offers an extremely dry and solid sound without sacrificing the deeper low end. A Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon snare wire provides a crisp and articulate snare sound.
TAMA’s triple flanged 2.3mm steel hoops provide a “wetter” sound than die-cast zinc hoops.
Spotted Gum, a Premium Australian hardwood, is even harder than Bubinga and offers a crisp sound with a short and dry sustain.
In order to provide a crisper and more sensitive sound, we redesigned our snappy snare using new materials and customizing the shape of the plate and the wire coil’s winding pattern. As a result of these modifications, the Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare fits closer to the snare side head, providing greater sensitivity and a brighter, crisper sound.
