The new SLP drum kits are based on the concept Tama’s SLP snare drum series, which have become very popular worldwide for their wide range of features and sound characteristics. Like the snares, each kit model has its own original sound and distinct features such as hoops, lugs and tom brackets, that were carefully selected to achieve the full potential of its shell material.
Tama SLP Fat Spruce
The SLP Fat Spruce features luxurious 100% Spruce shells, which is rarely used as a material on complete drum sets. Its unique sound is fat and resonant with solid mids and a natural pure tone. Furthermore, by utilizing die-cast hoops, it provides a very clear, focused attack. It also has a very wide tuning range, making it suitable for a number of music styles. The drums sound great tuned up high for jazz, but also perform well at low to medium tension, optimal for R&B, Blues, Indie Rock and Ballads. The bop sizing (12″/14″/20″) adds punch to the spruce’s naturally smooth, warm character.
Adding value to the SLP Fat Spruce shell pack are a set of die-cast steel hoops, whose crisp, cutting tonal characteristics serve to balance out the warmth of the spruce.
Direct Flexi-Mount System
The SLP Fat Spruce Shell Pack features Tama’s newly designed Direct Flexi-Mount, featuring a two-piece structure that instead of increasing resonance, this system controls the vibration of the shell whilst allowing the shell to resonate more freely than traditional direct-to-shell mounts. The mount is made of a plate that is mounted to the shell and another piece that secures the L-rod of the tom holder/stand. The two sections are connected with a steel shaft, allowing for some horizontal play. This is what controls the vibration of the shell, allowing for increased resonance, projection and tone, as well as providing a smooth decay for a clear sound.
