Tama Offers 5th Warlord Collection Snare [Winter NAMM 2008]

Anaheim, California, United States

New “Athenian” Features Brass Shell with Resonant Sound Edge

Tama’s Warlord Collection of unique and aggressive snare drums has added its fifth member, the Athenian. Commented Terry Bissette of Tama: “Our new brass Warlord Athenian, like its steel Spartan counterpart, features R.S.E. Resonant Sound Edges for more projection and increased fatness. However, the Athenian sound is more controlled and warmer than the Spartan, which makes the Warlord Athenian the right choice for players who favor the tremendous traditional tones of the great old vintage brass snares.”

The KBR146C Athenian features a 1mm brass shell with a special plated finish and includes a deluxe hardshell carrying case. The list price is $1199.99

The brass Athenian joins the original four members of the Warlord Collection, the Spartan (stainless steel), the Masai (bubinga), the Valkyrie (maple), and the obscenely expensive, but worth every penny, Praetorian (bell brass). All Warlord Collection snare drums feature die-cast hoops, and lugs featuring cut crystals by Swarovski of Austria.
