ANAHEIM CA, January 18, 2007 — Tama debuted the third Simon Phillips signature snare drum at the 2007 NAMM musical instrument convention in Anaheim, CA. Named the “Monarch” by Phillips himself, one of the new snare drum’s most standout features is a hybrid shell crafted of maple and bubinga. Another unique spec is the use of a specially modified triple flanged hoop.
The Monarch features a 6.5 x 14” 9 ply shell made of three plies of maple, three plies of bubinga, three plies of maple and an outer ply of quilted maple in charcoal finish. The list price is $569.99
Simon Phillips comments on his new Monarch TAMA Signature Palette snare drum:
“The Monarch has a very quick response, with a ring, but a ring that is instant—that is, it comes when you hit the drum as opposed to a ring that continues after you hit the drum. I think a lot of that has to do with its special modified triple-flanged hoop. The Monarch is a lot more specialized than my other signature snare drums, with a more complex sound. I’ve been using it live now since the beginning of 2006, recorded with it a few times and it’s been fantastic.”
