I have owned this drum for of a year. Fabulous ! I changed the stock head to a Evans reverse dot power center head. Fabulous ! The drum sounds great. If you play gigs where you are not miked no problem you will be heard. Tama's doubled butted snare system is great because you can place the snares right where they should be on snare side head. Buy it, you'll love it.
I don't personally own this snare but my buddy has had it since they came out. Hes let me take it to a few gigs and he uses it in his bands recording. All I can say is WOW! It is the most amazing snare drum I have ever heard. Ive played on customs, production line, signature, the works and my far this tops them all. The tone you get from the bubinga shell is DARK! I couldn't believe the low end you can get out of this snare. Yet it wasn't too low, you can also crank this baby wayy up for some pretty amazing high bright tone. Either or this is an all around amazing snare. As for the looks...astonishing,from the medieval style lugs to the gems embedded in them TAMA certainly outdid themselves with this one. When I get me some cash I'm most deff. getting me one for my ddrum kit. If you are concerned about the price, buy this drum and see that it will be the best money you've ever invested.YOU WONT BE DISSAPPOINTED!!!!
This is the absolute best snare I have ever played on. I've owned custom snares, as well as snares from many different companies made of many different materials and this drum, by far, outperforms them all. Pure perfection. Records beautifully as well, and is a monster when miced in live situations. Definitely a rocker's snare.
This snare drum is absolutely amazing. When I saw the pictures of these things on Tama's new warlord website, I knew I just had to have it. This thing is built to the absolute highest standards, and when you see it in person, you will know that the quality of the craftsmanship is top notch. As for the sound -- amazing. This one is bubinga, which has the power and projection of birch, but with the clarity of maple. It has a wide range of tone as well, going from deep and punchy to bright and crisp, all depending on how you tune it. If you decide to drop a lot on a snare drum or just have the money to blow on one, get one of these babies; they really are jaw-dropping.
I just got my masai.... this is an absolutely gorgeous drum. Case in comes in is high quality, and the stock heads are nice evans G1 coated and 300 resonant side. I tuned it up to the same pitch as my maple black panther, blew the panther away. Sound is so much fatter, its got the crack you want to cut through dense music, but all the depth and warm lower overtones you want for just about any other application. Very versatile, great sound. My only complaint would be that it is a little overpriced. Could be cheaper, but definitely worth it.
I want to start off by stating TAMA makes great "quality" products. Now I can honestly say I laughed at the introduction of the "Warlord" series. What can I say?I thought the name & look was a little over the top. After some reviews & hearing a few of the drums, they started to make an impression. I was primarily interested, as well as impressed after playing it some at the store, in the "Spartan" snare drum. And then a friend of mine had the 6 x 13 limited maple Warlord. Let me tell you, that snare drum is wicked?expensive, but worth it. And all of which finally led me to the "Masai" snare drum? The Masai looks incredible in person & comes with a nice hard case?the obvious. Now the sound of this bubinga snare drum is different from TAMA's Starclassic Bubinga. I used to own the limited edition "Midnight Storm" bubinga snare, which I painfully regret getting rid of, and I've also played the Starclassic Bubinga. Both drums are similar in plies & hardware. They had a nice powerful deep tone, rich resonant lows, and a loud crack. The Masai snare drum has a thicker shell, which gives it a different "sound character". It has a tight tone & the "solid attack" of bubinga, but not as deep or rich in resonance. Don?t get me wrong, the Masai is a nice snare drum & unique in it?s own right. I like the Hi-Carbon Snappy Snares. The drum has a lot of sensitivity even when played soft. I've been using the factory single ply coated head to be different among my other snare drums. I like the open ring, and between the thickness of the shell & die-cast hoops there's plenty of volume with a sweet rimshot. Now with everything you just read, I actually prefer & would suggest the Starclassic Bubinga snare drum?that?s just my opinion. I was a little disappointed in the sound character of the Masai?not the sound quality. The Starclassic Bubinga is lot more versatile with rich resonance & deep tone?again that?s just my opinion. Also, you?ll save a few $$ whether it's a standard Starclassic Bubinga or the "Elite" with the only con being availability (special order in most cases).
Just received this beautiful piece of artwork that is this Warlord Masai snare in the mail today and I must say it is by far the most versatile snare I've ever played on.I've played on many snares, an own more then a few myself, but already this one is my favorite.Just to get it out of the way, it looks more stunning then you can believe... You just have to see it.Now when I first got it, it came with nice Evans heads which was a pleasant surprise. I tried a multitude of tunings, really low and bellowing, up to highs that rival a piccolo. Even when tuned high, it has the high tonal range, but still has a breadth about it that has so much power and subtlety. Even the slightest grace-note is accentuated, it is perfect. Perfect in every way.
I just received this snare 2 weeks ago and I've used it in lots of band practice. It sounds amazing! They're the best snare drum I've ever played on! I'd tried Black Panther or some custom snare and nothing beats this snare! Bubinga wood is the best shell for drum! The design itself looks beautiful! If you have the money, I would recommend everyone of you to get this snare! You won't be disappointed with it!
I got a great deal on this snare drum half a year ago, which is the reason why I bought it - and I didn't regret it for one second. It's such a beautiful finish and the lugs look awesome, it really has become the mighty center of my drumkit :D It comes with a coated Evans G1 on top and a 300 Hazy on the bottom, which is a good start. If you don't like too much overtones, they also give you a muffling ring that you can put on if you want (I personally like a little bit of tape more). Even if you do, doesn't change the fact that this drum blows you away. Especially the rimshots are so powerful, never played a wooden snare drum that was that loud :D But if you hit it soft, it still sounds great. The only negative thing I could say is, that the Warlord drums are quite expensive, and I probably wouldn't have payed the full price for it. But go try it out and decide yourself, If you got the money you won't regret buying this great snare drum.
