Great Snare

By James-USxHB

from California

I got this snare drum a few months ago and it is really, really nice. I am still trying to tune it just right, i'm not an expert tuner, but it sounds great and I can get a lot of different sounds out of it. I own the 6.5x14 model, and it is just great, loud, powerful, explosive, and it comes with some cool stuff like good heads and a good carrying bag

Very High Quality and BEAUTIFUL Snare!

I have been using mediocre snares my entire life, and decided it was time to finally spring for a nice snare. I did tons of research and played on many snare drums before I came to a decision on getting one of these. I got the 6.5 x 14" Titanium Burst snare and it definitely is a BEAUT! I got it tuned up right away and boy was I amazed! It has a very nice attack, and lovely rim shots! I've received so many compliments on this snare's sound and look at the different gigs that I've played at, and I definitely will never look back at the choice of this snare. I am 100% happy with my decision, and would recommend it to anyone!(I'm even getting a custom kit made with the same black hardware because it is soooo beautiful!)


Excellent Quality Buy for the money

Did a lot of research on the 13x7's. Everything from DW's (I have the collectors) to the Pork Pies, Yamahas, Gretch's. Overall, reviews were great for this snare. Comes with great heads and nice hardware. Drum has a nice tuning range (based on your heads). Produces a nice bright, high tone when cranked. Also gives a nice lower tone when lugs are loosened. Great tone high and mid. Batter arrived off-center, so start your tuning finger tight and center it. Slight overtones and ring, but expected with the single ply Power Center Reverse Dot. Comes with nice little dampener ring and quality carry bag. Quality Tone, high-gloss lacquer finish and hardware. Nice value for the money. Competitor price was matched nicely.


so worth it

By takeabitefromthesun

I bought this in a 13" x 6.5" size for my set and man was it worth it. It sounds great, has solid construction, looks great, and is great. PERIOD.Tama has never disappointed me in the past and still hasn't to this day.For the price, I don't think there's a better snare drum to be had.


14x6.5 Super Maple...

By Stefan-ZxJ21

from North Carolina

Just purchased an Artwood Custum 14x6.5 Super Maple and I am definitely pleased with it. At first I wasn't sure about the tone so I decided to throw on a Remo Coated CS batter over an Ambassador Snare Hazy. I also swapped out the stock snare wires,(StarClassic)for a Puresound Custom 20 strand and let me tell ya, this snare came alive! If your in the market for a 6.5 inch maple snare then definitely consider this one!

Well I just recently bought this snare yesterday, and it is by far one of the best snares I have heard! I have been doing research on them, buy going to drum shops and places that caryy musical equiptment. I was almost going to buy a black panther, but I choose this one instead because to me it sounded better. all I had to do was tune it a little bit. its an awesome combo with the maple and the bag.i got the 6.5 x 14" titanium burst, and I just fell in love. I really enjoy this snare drum!


Wow, who would've known?!

I decided to take a chance on buying this drum without playing it after reading all the 5 star reviews and checking out the Tama website. I played Tama Superstars way back in the 80's and was always pleased, but have not played Tamas since. I have many DW snares as well as others, but I have to say my 13 x 6.5 little beauty kicks some serious patuti! Nice maple shell with great edges, killer crack and very, very sensitive. It took me about 5 minutes to tune it up out of the box and get it sounding fantastic. Definitely an amazing deal for the money. I already played one "unplugged" gig and got lots of compliments on the sound. It kept up with the rest of my DW set easily. Buy it, you will not be disappointed!


Tama Artwood Maple 7

I am a student at the Los Angeles Music Academy: College of Music, and I'm studying many styles. (Rock, Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazillian, etc) and I needed a snare drum that could keep up with my work ethic/gig/sound requirements. This drum does all of that. It is a wonderful addition to any drumset. I didn't care much for the Stock heads, so I put on an Aquarian Modern Vintage Batter Head, and an Aquarian Classic Clear resonant head. Absolutely beautiful sound, thick, full, wonderful maple tone.
