Tama 6.5x14 Starclassic Performer Snare Honey Amber Gold


Starclassic Performer B/B snare drums combine the classic tone of thin birch for the outer layer of the shell with new, heavy-duty African bubinga for the inner shell. The use of the thicker, harder bubinga accentuates birch's distinct tone and projection. The combination of the two creates a more powerful, deeply rounded sound like no other!

What we think:

Warm and powerful, the TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B snare drum gives you the classic sound of thin birch for the outer layer of the shell, and African bubinga for the inner shell. In this magic tone cocktail, the harder, thicker bubinga perfectly compliments the iconic tone of the birch, serving up a round snare sound with plenty of projection. And this fetching Honey Amber Gold finish, looks every bit as good as it sounds. Power your backbeat with the distinctive sounding, amazing looking TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B snare drum.
