We're really pleased that Tamburo offer such a great range of sizes in their snare drum ranges, we've specially ordered a variety of colours across the size and range spectrum.
Here we have a Tamburo Opera snare drum. These drums are unlike anything we've seen before. The staves which each measure 6mm are made from 5 layers of Birch, the external ply is HPL (high pressure laminate) which allows for the unique finishing appearance on the drums. To produce such a light yet solid polyhedral cylinder, the shell is internally bound using beech reinforcing rings.
The Opera series uses the Tamburo ST lug. The Strong Traction Lug is a very serious piece of design. The long lug design creates a stable drum head tension which enhances the mechanical strength of each full rotation turn of the rod. The unique design allows the shell not to be loaded with any tension and remains free to fully conduct air movement produced by the strike of the head. There are 4 main components to the ST Lug, 1) the ABS anti-vibration contacts at the top and bottom. 2) The 0.6mm Alloy Pipe travelling between the two ABS points. 3) The stainless steel covers which case the sides of ABS points. 4) The brass pin.
This smaller 10 x 5.5 Opera Series come with Triple Flanged Hoops, 20 strand steel wires and Tamburo's proprietary design snare system. The fused block lug allows for great feeling and precise adjustment. A small magnet is fitted within the mechanism to ensure stability and grip over time. The die cast butt plate features a bridge design reducing shell contact whilst maintaining good grip of the wire.
All Tamburo snares come fitted as standard with Evans USA drum heads, the Opera comes with Evans UV1 batter over 300 series Reso.
The drum we have here is finished in Zebrano from their Wood Line finishes which is just jaw dropping.
