Versatile steel shell. Sharp, cutting performance. The Tama 10" x 5.5" Metalworks Black on Black Steel Snare Drum provides an impressively versatile sound for your drum kit. The 1.2mm steel shell produces a crisp, clean tone with a sharp pop at full dynamics. This 10'' x 5.5'' model would make a perfect auxiliary snare due to its smaller dimensions, and comes with a tom bracket for mounting like a tom drum. You could also combine the 10'' x 5.5'' Metalworks snare with the larger Metalworks models to create a diverse musical timbre, perfect for latin or drum n' bass grooves. Finished with a matte black shell and hardware, the Metalworks snare drums would be an effective and affordable addition to any kit.
