      I saw a few reviews here and had to post not to sell drums for this site but to share experiences with the drum..
      I have over 40 snares and they do not sit gathering dust.They are rotated and used for a wide variety of studio and live sessions..
      The lars drum has taken a lot of hits thru the drum world from folks that dont care for it and tatse is ones own business but I just had to post...
      The drum takes a second to tune,as in,once you dial it in"right head choice,tension and muffling"If you choose to use it",the drum delivers..
      I had nothing but praise from sound men thru out the U.S and Europe commenting on the drums cutting attack as well as its mid range thickness..
      When I wanted to beef it up for heavy thick mids just a bit of dampening and a lower tuning and the drum opened up amazingly well..
      This was the case on several sessions that had me playing groove based alt rock as well as groove driven funk..Yes,funk..
      The weight of the drum ads to the meat.
      As for rock the same thing applies really..I hit very very hard but also may have to throw in some buzz rolls and let me tell you,the drum sounds thunderous.It gives you crack,pop and meat.Again,sound men chimed in when hearing it live..
      Lars started a huge debate about the sound of this drum due to his tuning the drum wide open ala bands like Helmet,etc..Even Brufford-esque in the way the sound was open and wide ,clangy and ring beyond belief..
      If he had changed the drums tuning a bit and dampened it slightly I think people would have loved it's sound ..
      I own 2 and they have payed for themselves in the work they have done..
      It is built solid and I have had not one problem with the hoops,throw off,finish or condition and the drum has seen a lot of work..
      I am now in the process of thinning out my snare collection as I am hearing sound differently taste wise and want to refine my go to drums even more and I will not sell either of the 2 Lars snares if that gives you any idea of how much I enjoy the sounds they produce..

      47 years experience and 30+ snare drums in the past 7 years including this one (which I sold after demo'ing). IMHO a very average-sounding snare. Excellent quality etc. but should be about 1/3 the price. I just bought a certain snare here on MusiciansFriend for a very! low price and it sounds at least as good as this one set-up the way I prefer. Allows enough savings to buy an extra shell kit and new heads. Wouldn't recommend this only due to the absurd price.

          owned this snare for 10 years,built like a tank…except the throw-off hardware. this became stripped after time & TAMA does not make a replacement! they do but it is larger diameter hole than the original forcing you to 'drill' into this drum to repair.F%$# ridiculous. cannot find this anywhere.Called TAMA & asked why they dont carry original hardware……silence was heard for several moments…...

              Hit it hard, or else

              Comments about Tama Lars Ulrich Diamond Plate Steel Snare Drum 14x6.5:

              This snare is perfect for anyone who plays metal or rock with hammering hits on the snare. But the power the hits is crucial. If you try to go for sensitivity with this snare drum, prepare to be disappointed. If you want a powerful drum for your back beats, you will have a hard time finding better.

              Great Sounding Piece of Metal

              Comments about Tama Lars Ulrich Diamond Plate Steel Snare Drum 14x6.5:

              I got this snare when it first came out and I still love the loud balsy sound it produces. put an Emperor X on this thing (it comes with an Ambassador which i think is too ringy) and it sounds just like the snare on Metallica's Black Album. if you need a new snare look no further!

              The Best Rock Snare

              By NIO

              from ATL

              Comments about Tama Lars Ulrich Diamond Plate Steel Snare Drum 14x6.5:

              This snare is absolutely a must if you are playing Rock n' Roll. This snare will put hair on your chest ... its a shot of adrenalin. It is loud and piercing, but deep and meaty. It makes the rest of your drum set sound secondary ... as they should be.

              High maintenance anvil

              By Paul-COQY3

              from San Diego

              Comments about Tama Lars Ulrich Diamond Plate Steel Snare Drum 14x6.5:

              This snare is a freaking anvil. The thing weighs 16 pounds. It's gotta be the heaviest snare in existence. When it's right this thing cranks like a steel mill. But it's like a hot chick--very high maintenance. When I play a 4-hour, 4-set gig I'll have to adjust it two or three times. It needs to be very tight on both heads and the tuning knob needs to be kind of loose. On the outer edges it's incredibly ringy and pingy. You know what I mean? Despite all that, I love it. It's the best snare I've owned. But it's not versatile. It's for hard rock, classic rock, and heavy metal. But like with a hot chick, if you treat it right it'll treat you right. It will eat up drum sticks though.

              Comments about Tama Lars Ulrich Diamond Plate Steel Snare Drum 14x6.5:

              This is a great snare drum it's really loud and cuts through the guitar and vocal. The only problem is that it dosent have very good sensitivity. I find to get a good sound out of this snare you really got to hit this thing hard. Also this is one pricy snare drum. I payed over 700 for mine with tax! But this chrome beast is worth is for sure!

              Great Snare

              Comments about Tama Lars Ulrich Diamond Plate Steel Snare Drum 14x6.5:

              I bought this snare about 3 years ago and it is great for heavy rock to soft rock. It gives a realy loud snap when tuned tight and when tuned low a very trashy like rock sound that fills the room. You do get wut you pay for, this isnt a small amount but well worth it. If its to snappy just add a muffling ring and see the great sound you get as well. This snare drum is great in all aspects. You can not go wrong with it.

              Be sure to try it out first

              Comments about Tama Lars Ulrich Diamond Plate Steel Snare Drum 14x6.5:

              My drummer has this snare and is friggen awesome for volume. Very cutting. However, since I am a drummer I tried it out and was not very fond of it. I couldn't find a good liking to it. Way too snappy for my liking in the lower tunings and way to ringy in the higher tunings. So do yourself a favour and go try it out before you purchase it. As like I hope you do with anything else you purchase
