Here we have a Tamburo Unika snare drum. The Unika is a completely unique shell design with two HPL (high pressure laminate) layers sandwiching a high quality Italian poplar core. This particular shell lay up offers extreme strength and stability whilst remaining lightweight. The unique HPL layers not previously used in drums make the shells completely waterproof preventing deterioration over time. Not only do these shells offer superior strength and protection, they also offer a superior sonic quality unlike anything you've heard from regular wood ply shells.
The Unika 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.
The Unika Series come with 2.2mm Triple flanged hoops, 25 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 Unika comes with Evans UV1 batter over 300 series Reso.
