OVERVIEW

The best all-around drum in the S.L.P. series: G-Bubinga.

This 12-ply, 10mm Bubinga shell provides an extraordinarily punchy sound with a large helping of low-end. The combination of 2.3mm flanged hoops and low-mass separate lugs allow the Bubinga shell to resonate more naturally. While its suggested musical styles include pop, R&B, rock and country, the G-Bubinga is considered to be the best all-around snare in the S.L.P. series.

FEATURES
  • Shell: 12ply/10mm, Bubinga shell with Quilted Bubinga outer ply
  • Size: 6 x 14"
  • Finish: Natural Quilted Bubinga with Black Nickel hardware
  • Hoop: Steel Mighty Hoop
  • Lug: Starclassic Lug

      Comments about Tama S.L.P. G-Bubinga Snare Drum:

      I'm totally impressed by the quality of this drum. I was hesitant to purchase one because the shells are made in China and the price seemed too good to be true for bubinga. Very glad I made the purchase! This drum is well built and has great range. I like using a Remo Coated Ambassador or Emperor on this snare. In my opinion, a more open head shows off the drum's true versatile qualities. A great snare to add to your arsenal!

          Comments about Tama S.L.P. G-Bubinga Snare Drum:

          Incredibly versatile and beautiful drum: 14x6 Used for Rock, Fusion, Reggae, Funk and suits all very well. I tune the drum high to very high but also sounds very nice tuned lower on Jazz, Hip-hop, or Pop tunes. Provides amazingly cutting pop and rim shots. Nice full tones expected from a 14 inch diameter but surprising highs from a 6" wooden snare. This should have been my first snare drum. Definitely versatile enough as a primary snare and in no way needs to be considered an auxiliary drum. Minimal ring eliminated with simple moon gel or similar (or nothing at all). Finished wood with darker hardware is gorgeous! Heads supplied: Evans G1 coated batter and 300 snare side were easy to tune and heads I would buy in the first place. So, no need to change them. Bubinga material was added to my small collection including Gretsch Renown Maple 14x5, Stewart Copeland Tama signature series, and a little 12 x 6 steel popper. The drum can be similar in character to any of these drums (even the popper surprisingly!). My shell kit is a Gretsch Renown Maple with cherry finish and this drum pairs nicely musically and in appearance. This is a great purchase that can be used daily. I feel like this is a custom sounding, quality drum diverse enough to play a wide variety of styles. A solid and "sound" investment!!!

            Comments about Tama S.L.P. G-Bubinga Snare Drum:

            So I got a chance to pick up one of these bad boys used for two bills. I changed out the heads and added Puresound snares and I got to say this snare has the deepest crack of any of my 7 wonders (snares) I use this in conjunction with my Stewart Copeland snare and the two of them can annihilate even the loudest stacks of amps. What's even better is the sensitivity of this snare. At 6x14 and 12 ply 10mm thickness I was worried about it being a clunker but Tama has a knack for building versatile beasts. I would say every drummer should own a maple snare, a brass, and an aluminum snare. But if you are going to own a 4th, this bubinga bad boy is the way to go.

            Comments about Tama S.L.P. G-Bubinga Snare Drum:

            Fantastic sounding drum! A work of art too! At first I was gonna give this snare a bad review. I couldn't understand why a drum with premo features wasn't happening. I had it sounding like a bad field drum, that is, before I learned to tune properly. This is what you need to do: Don't choke your snare drum by over tightning top head or snare wires. Bottom head must be tighter than batter head but you also need to de-tune the lugs a little bit on each side of snare wires. When you do this you help create the snare bed & thus no need to over tighten the snare wires trying to force a snare bed. Of course you still have to do a little fussing with seating the head and use even tension at all lugs (except were noted on the bottom head.) My snare now pops but also is full bodied - just beautiful sounding! I also have the 13" Sonic Steel snare drum in this series and used this same tuning procedure on it with the same great results - very responsive!

              This drum is worth every penny it can be used for just about any style of music sounds great with stock heads but changed it out to a evans hd dry
              have had many snares over the years and this one is just about perfect from metal one gig to very light rock the next the looks and sound are sick dry but still lots of mid range and heavy bottom end. highly recommend this snare...
