TAMA’s Starphonic Bravura Concert Snare

June 4, 2020

The TAMA Starphonic Bravura Concert snare drum features a 6”x14”, 7ply, 6mm Maple Shell which offers a warm, even tone, ideal for most playing situations. The 6” depth affords excellent tuning flexibility, allowing the drum to emulate shallower or deeper drums depending on how it is tuned. The drum also features a 120° snare bed, Groove Straight Hoops, and TAMA’s notable Starphonic Freedom Lug system.
The Bravura’s snare wires consist three distinctly different types of materials: Nickel Wound Guitar Strings, Nylon Coated Stainless Steel Straight Wire, and Hi Carbon Coil snares. They work together for even, consistent sound and excellent response at all dynamic levels. The Multi Snare Frame holds the wires so they come straight off the bearing edge. This promotes maximum response and vibration of the bottom head, even at the softest playing levels. It also allows for fine adjustments to the individual snare strands or by adjusting all of them at once with the master adjustment control. The Starphonic Bravura Concert snare incorporates many of TAMA’s signature design elements, bringing the company’s decades of experience in drum making to the concert percussion market.
