The new Tama Starclassic Copper snare offers a 5 1/2 x 14" 1.5 mm thick copper shell for a sound that's both dark and loud. "Dark and loud are usually considered mutually exclusive terms," said Ace Okamoto of Tama. "But the combination of copper and a thick 'G shell' gives this limited edition snare both deep rich dark tones and unbelievable projection."

Tama's Starclassic Drums were originally designed with thin, resonant shells. Starclassic maple snares with thicker G-shells (as in "G-force") were added for drummers who wanted stronger projection that a thicker shell affords. In addition to the regular projection thick maple shells, Tama has offered limited edition Starclassic snares with thicker metal shells such as the new copper model.

The Starclassic SCS1455H features an antique plated finish, brushed nickel shell hardware and brushed nickel die-cast hoops. The list price is $549.99
