The enhanced lows of bubinga offer exotic sounds without the exotic price.
This TAMA SLP bubinga snare drum uses 12 layers of bubinga to create a snare with a wide frequency response, focus, and incredible punch. It's a very dry sound as well, making this the perfect snare for recording in the studio. And for a classy look, the outer ply is quilted bubinga and is accented with black nickel hardware.
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.
