Ok, I was on musiciansfriend.com lastnight and found this snare and fell in love with it. It is SO badass, and so beautiful, and im sure ( given the price ) it would sound just as amazing ( in the right hands) as it looks.

If I could, I would have an entire kit look like this snare.

Please, Tell me what you think.

hey there, tht is from the new line of Tama snare drums "Warlord Series" there is no kit to match the Warlord snares, but there are 4 types of these snares.
this one is called the "Valkyrie", theres also 3 others, "Spartan, Masai & Praetorian" all made out of different materials.
i must admit, they are extreamly beatuful snare drums, i personally want either the Spartan or the Praetorian, they dont come cheap.

Yeah that would be a great idea if Tama introduced a whole line of Warlord Drumsets instead of just having the snares.

Dude, if it was possible, I'd get a whole kit like that.

That looks killer! Not one detail was overlooked. I wish more companies made stuff like that.

Finally, a snare drum that will make your ears AND eyes bleed!

I've read many reviews myself that say that the Warlock series are amazing drums. I personally want the Valkyrie (spelling?) because it is 15 plies of MAPLE. I love Maple snares, and that one would be absolutely amazing.

And I've downloaded the sound bites for each one of the snares and I love every single one of them. I would love having an entire kit like this. It's visually striking, and is sheer beauty to the ear.

The problem with the reviews at musicians friend is this... you don't have to actually own one to write the review. In fact you could write a review for a product you have never seen or played...

Those reviews, both good and bad, cannot be trusted!

It looks interesting. It's kind of a waste to me because on stage the snare drum is the most difficult drum to see from off stage.

I'm sure it is a beautiful drum.

This comment is less than professional.

In fact it has turned me off buying the Starclassic kit I was going to get. I'll stick with what I consider ultimate in drums. SONOR!
