I just bought a TAMA G MAPLE SNARE (6 x 14)....and I love it! it sounds huge in comparison to many snares I hear....the 13 ply shell gives the drum a warm and controlled sound...and with a bright edgy resonance to it. But, I wan't to know what other people think of it. I'm tired of my perspective because im bored of it...haha....any perspective good or bad will do people!!!!
