Tama is adding two new models to their popular Sound Lab Project (SLP) series of snare drums for 2017.

The LAL1455 is a Classic Dry Aluminum snare, which recreates a vintage look and sound reminiscent of snare drums from the early 1960s. It features a seamless 1.2mm aluminum shell, with a center bead and 8-lug Steel Mighty Hoops, to create a crisp, sharp attack with short sustain. It also includes a Quick Touch Strainer & Butt with super sensitive hi-carbon snare wire.

The LSP146 is labeled as Fat Spruce. It features an all-spruce 8-pyl shell, with a stunning Wild Satin Spruce finish. It boasts a warm, resonant tone with a smoother, softer attack. Combined with TAMA’s 8-lug die-cast hoops, it can still create a powerful, yet warm, rim shot sound. It also includes a Liner-Drive Strainer & Butt with super sensitive hi-carbon snare wire.

Both drums include Evans G1 heads.
