NAMM 2012 preview: new Mike Portnoy snares Tama set to unveil two updated signature snare drums Tama Drums will reveal two new updated Mike Portnoy signature snare drums at the 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California next week.

Named for his daughter, Melody, Mike Portnoy's updated Melody Master drums come in two versions. Both snares are steel drums.

The first, a 12x5 inch drum, is the same as the drummer's previous 12 inch model but with a new logo design: the ambigram badge reads Mike Portnoy even when turned upside-down.

The second updated snare drum is a 14x5.5 inch version of Mike's signature snare with a steel shell, matte black finish and a new badge.

A new Mike Portnoy maple snare is also on the way later in 2012, to replace the MP1455 signature snare model. More details are still to be announced.
