Don't Forget

A heavy-duty bell brass snare that drove classic '80s backbeats and beyond.

This Tama Bell Brass Snare was hand-cast using a process similar to that used in making cymbals. As soon as the heavy hitters of the '80s heard that bell brass sound, they were hooked. The snare produces a sound that cuts with clarity like no other, yet still delivers excellent warmth and balanced timbre. Due to the increasingly heavy music styles of the 1980's that featured nasty, gritty guitar tones, drummers, producers and engineers needed a snare that could live in its own sonic space and project ear-splitting volume. This was the snare they went to and this is the snare that stands the test of time.

This 3mm rolled brass shell is fitted with the best of Tama's hardware options. Die-cast hoops will hold up under the duress of your rimshots, while configuration of 10 Original Superstar lugs and a MS20S will ensure you're able to dial in your tone.

As music continues to evolve, the Tama Bell Brass Snare continues to give the drummer sonic saturation and endless projection. The Tama BB156 represents chance to own the iconic snare drum that has been the backbone of hundreds of well-known, classic recordings.

Comments about Tama Bell Brass Snare Drum:

Legendary snare, get it while you can, because every time they re-intruduce it the price goes up! If you want Metallica, look no further. It's got the tone, hands down. Not to mention, it's extremely LOUD. I measured it to 110db from the drum throne. If you can justify the price and round up the cash, definitely get this drum.
