Tuning the Tama S.L.P. snare drum

People often ask me about tuning drums, so here's a little video showing how to get the best tones out of your snare.

And while we're at it, let's check out an exclusive piece of Tama craftsmanship, shall we? The kick ass snare drum featured in this video is the Tama S.L.P. Vintage Steel, officially presented at NAMM 2012 along with the new Tama Silverstar series. I'll be presenting both the S.L.P. and Silverstar during my upcoming European drum clinic tour. More details about that very soon; meanwhile, enjoy this new vid and keep those questions coming!
