    Product Description

    The Tama PST146 is a premium snare drum from the Tama Starphonic range. The PST146 is full bodied and powerful with just enough cut and ring to enable you to cut through the mix and get a real "crack!" out of your kit.

    The 1mm thick steel shell has a hard edge to its sound, and Evans heads provide the vibrating surface which brings out the warmth of the drum. Dynamic, warm and sharp, the PST146 is a snare that competes with the best.

    Here's what Tama say about the PST146

    TAMA is proud to release this limited edition STARPHONIC snare drum featuring a thin 1mm steel shell. Though steel is one of the most common snare drum materials, STARPHONIC's innovative hardware enhances the shell's sharp crisp sound, as well as providing easy and reliable tuning.  All at an affordable price!

    Grooved Hoop

    The "Grooved Hoop" is a totally new development in drum hoop design and is exclusive to our STARPHONIC snares. Because of its 1.6mm thickness and the lack of holes usually required to accommodate tension rods, the Grooved Hoop provides maximum strength and rigidity, and truer roundness. Combined with the STARPHONIC Freedom Lug & Hook, the Grooved Hoop allows fast and easy head changing. The shape of the "Grooved Hoop" is inspired by so-called "stick saver hoops" which were typically used on select vintage snare drums in the 30s and 40s. With a usual flanged hoop, the top section of the hoop is bent towards the outside of the drum. But on the "Grooved Hoop", it bends inward. This inward curvature not only enhances the natural tone of the drum and projects the sound upwards toward the player, it offers more sensitivity, precision, and control.

    Freedom lug and claw hook

    By loosening the tension rods, you can tilt the claw hooks backwards and away from the Grooved Hoop. This quick release system offers simple, speedy replacement of drum heads without having to take all of the tension rods out of the lugs.

    Super Sensitive High Carbon Snappy Snare

    In order to provide a more crisp and sensitive sound, we redesigned our snappy snare, using new materials and customizing the shape of the plate and the wire coil's winding pattern. As a result of these modifications, the new "Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare" fits more closely to the snare side head, demonstrating greater sensitivity and brighter, crisper sound.

    New Linear Drive Strainer

    STARPHONIC's new strainer uses a "Linear-Drive" system, which we designed to provide greater control of the lever adjustment arm and more precise control of the strainer's deployment motion. Even if you move the arm rapidly, you will not hear the typical "slap" of the wires hitting the bottom head. The strainer movement is designed to work in a true "linear motion", similar to the motion found on "round sprocket" drum pedals. Most strainers are not designed like this and tend to speed up right before the snare wires connect with the snare side head. Also, by tilting the angle of the butt plate 30 degrees, this design holds the snare wire cords or tape more firmly and reduces unnecessary pressure on the strainer and shell.

    Detachable Butt Plate

    The Detachable Strainer Butt allows you to change your snare side head, but keeps the snare wire tension in its original state. Just loosen the two screws and detach the butt plate with the snappy snares still on. When you reattach the butt plate, the snare wire tension will be restored to its original position and calibration. The Grooved Snare Side Hoop features an open frame for simpler operation.

    Ratchet Style Snappy Tension Adjuster

    To prevent the snappy snares from loosening, TAMA incorporated a ratchet system on the strainer's tension adjustment mechanism. Much like an adjustment tool with fine gears, it achieves high-pressure retention, even with extreme settings. Single click adjustments offer a vertical pull of 0.125mm of wire motion, which allows you to achieve ultra sensitive micro-adjustments.

    Non-loosening rubber gasket

    STARPHONIC's claw hooks have a rubber block inside to prevent the tension bolts from loosening during playing. Once the tension bolt is tightened, the claw hook is pressed towards the hoop. This also presses the rubber block inside the claw hook and adds pressure to the tension rod inside.
