Star Reserve Hand Hammered Aluminum Snare
Tama has added to its lineup of Star Reserve snare drums with the Hand Hammered Aluminum snare. Tama first introduced the metal hammering technique with its Star Reserve Hand-Hammered Copper snare and then later branched out with the Hand-Hammered Brass model. This time, Tama has applied its time-tested Japanese boutique hand hammering method to its new aluminum-shelled Star Reserve model. The 6 1/2- by 14-inch shell is comprised of a 3-millimeter-thick piece of aluminum. The overall dimensions of the drum, combined with the shell material, supply a dramatic and complex sound. The low frequencies are extremely rich and the high end is powerful and present throughout the entire tuning range.
