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:

    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.

    Killer snare indeed!!

    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!

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

      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...
