I started this quest when I heard the Pearl Joey Jordison snare drum (same size) being played in a local music store. I contacted Pearl and wanted that size snare, minus the Joey endorsement and the Slipknot logos all over the snare shell. Pearl refused to make this size snare without the Slipknot logos. I did some research and ran across this drum, made by Tama. This snare drum blows the Joey Jordison snare out of the music room. The Metalworks has more bite, volume, pitch, and overall effect! Plus it comes with awesome drum heads by Evans and a rich leather bag with very thick cloth foamy padding inside! The thing that impresses me the most about this drum is the actual color of it. Overall I?m extremely happy with the snare. I?m mixing it with DW drums and Zildjian cymbals. I was very hesitant about mixing brands of drums but it looks really awesome with the kit. It has such a neutral color look to it, that it would match any drum kit with no problem! Hopefully you find this review helpful.

I bought this snare for a church kit because the two wood snares I would have rather bought were out of stock. The snare is built well and sounds ok, but I don't love the sound. It's just kind of a snare drum, nothing great about it. I will probably be replacing it with a nicer wood snare soon.

AWESOME snare

By WRCjr42-B7rmT

from Columbus, OH

I recently purchased this snare as an addition to my kit as a side snare, for some of the 'tighter' parts of my music, but this snare is so diverse, I'm down from 3 snares to just this one. I use the 12" by 4" and the nice full tone, powerful crack, and articulate head, this thing is great from my jazz to metal, classic rock, country, and any other musical endeavors. You still get the ghost notes out defined and articulate, even when playing full strokes and/or rimshots. I was so impressed with this snare, I hope to soon have every size of this drum, and two more of the 12" x 4" for my studio kit and my jazz kit, so I don't need to keep swaping them out.

CRACK!!!!!!

By Pyrochazm

I recently purchaced this snare, looking for that fat, low metallic tone you can only get with a big metal snare. Well, I found it. I've got it tuned low, and it sounds huge. It also came with excellent heads, and looks absolutley SICK!

Tama has it all!!

I have used this snare for a few of my performances this pass spring and durign the summer. It has a deep rich sound to it and gives off a wonderful sound when you strike it. I believe that the way your snare sounds depends on the physical strength of the drummer and how they tune their snare, but I will definitely recommend this snare to anyone...you can never go wrong with TAMA!!!!

I just bought this snare the other day and wow! I went to my local music store looking for a new snare to replace my shabby stcok snare. i fell in love with the sound of this monster. i got the 6.5X14 and it is the best thing ive bought for my kit yet. the only problem is the snare is so awesome, it makes everything else sound bad! for the price and the quality of tama, you cant go wrong buying this. you wont be disappointed

WOW! This is one of the best snares ever, it has a great sound, and a good tuning range, you can tune it to pretty much anything, if you can tune. If you looking for a great new snare get the Tama metalworks. You won't be sorry.

Awesome snare

I used this snare(6.5x14) and its awesome. It gives so much pop. For the price I'd definately recommend it, hey it even comes with a carrying bag. The heads that come with it sound good.Overall this snare rocks and I'd definately say buy it.

AWESOME SNARE

I bought this snare drum when I got my Joey Jordison kit. I wanted a good snare, and I knew Tama makes good drums. I had tried several different drums and I liked the Tama the most. It was a bit pricey, but well worth it. The only complaint I have is the head. It has worn out after a year, but then again, I play it all the time, and I guess heads only last that long. Good buy, good cutting sound, and amazing look. YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED.
