Tama has recently expanded its popular and competitively priced Sound Lab Project (S.L.P.) snare drum series to include three full drumsets. The Fat Spruce kit features all-spruce shells, a wood not often used in drum construction, for a unique sound that we found satisfying and fun to play. The Dynamic Kapur kit features all-kapur shells. Kapur is a rainforest hardwood that offers a dry, dark tonality but is still rich and lively. The Studio Maple has all-maple shells and natural-finished hoops. We were sent all three sets to put through their paces.
