14" hybrid wood snare drum with 6-play walnut/birch shells and blackened hardware

Looking to develop a snare drum for players who don't want to settle, TAMA explored countless possibilities before deciding on this 14" Starclassic walnut/birch snare drum, a hybrid wood centerpiece worthy of any high-end kit. Walnut has become increasingly popular as a snare drum wood because of its superior sonic quality, warmth and mid-to-low frequency. Birch, on the other hand, has been a well-defined and trusted standby in drum construction for many years, offering uncompromisingly solid attack and its trademark "pre-EQ" balanced tone.

TAMA set out to preserve the unique sonic trademarks of each wood, but also to let them blend into a very focused sound that would define itself with great distinction within a musical ensemble. This drum offers controlled sustain and clarity, sealed with an undeniably palpable feeling of warmth and resonance when used in performance.

This drum also features blackened steel hardware, compact double-row lugs, bright glossy finishes and top-of-the-line die-cast hoops from TAMA's Starclassic line.


  • 14" hybrid wood snare drum
  • 6-ply shell made from combination of walnut and birch
  • Blackened steel hardware including die-cast hoops
  • 10 double-row TAMA Starclassic lugs
  • Glossy, striking finishes

This snare marries the best of two celebrated woods in one pro-level drum. Order now.
