The 12" TAMA Soundworks Maple is no mere side snare. This firecracker en potentia packs an explosive punch that sounds downright massive under close mics. Cranked up, the Soundworks Maple has power to cut through the largest ensembles. And downtuned, its pocket is engineered to sit perfectly in a pop mix. What's special about the TAMA Soundworks Maple snare is that its voice remains dry at any tuning range. This is thanks to carefully selected 5mm maple shell. Precise rounded-outer bearing edges, an included Evans G1 batter head, and a set of TAMA Sound Arc hoops make it fast and easy to dial in a wide range of workable tones right out of the box.
