A snare that offers a classic appearance with higher-grade materials for a full tone and response.

With upgraded hardware and powerful projection from a steel shell, the Tama S.L.P. Vintage Steel Snare is a far cry from a typical, add-on snare from a shell pack. This drum also has a wider tuning range and sounds great at the low or high end of the spectrum.

However, the innovations don't stop at the tone and appearance. Tama's work on identifying the ideal snare sound led them to develop the new hardware like the "Sound Arc" Hoops which add sustain and a fuller frequency response. Hearty brass tube lugs will ensure a long lifespan for your tension rods, as well as your tune. And finally, the Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Steel Snappy snares will emphasize needed punch and attack, as needed.

  • Shell: 1.2mm
  • Steel shell Size: 14 x 5-1/2"
  • Finish: Nickel plating with Chrome hardware
  • Hoop: Sound Arc Hoop
  • Lug: Brass Tube Lug
  • Snappy: 20 Strand

A traditional snare with a sound that exceeds it's heritage. Order today!

Comments about Tama S.L.P. Vintage Steel Snare Drum:

I originally bought this snare as a back-up and a metal option to my current maple snare drum but, the Tama S.L.P. vintage steel snare drum has outshined all of my favorite snares that I own and replaced my #1 favorite snare I've been using for years!

I was very impressed by the fat tone the drum projects when you hit it in the center. The cross stick sounds chunky and brite, and there is really no limit to the tunability and tone range of this drum. I play a wide variety of musical genres and this is the drum that can handle any style I choose to play.
Kudos to Tama for creating this beauty, and hats off to Music 123 for delivering the Tama S.L.P. vintage snare drum at such a reasonable price!
