Video demo of the Tama S.L.P. Fat Spruce With Ulysses Owen Jr. live in the studio Tama S.L.P. Fat Spruce Drum Kit The new Fat Spruce drum kit from Tama makes our third and last article on the three new Tama Sound Lap Project - better known as S.L.P. - full drum sets the drum company launched at NAMM this year. The Fat Spruce is quit a unique kit. The density of Spruce wood is high, which means it creates a fat sound with a real focused attack. It's rarely used on complete drum sets, which makes it quite unique. All the S.L.P. kits, the Dynamic Capur, the Studio Maple and this Fat Spruce all come with their own specs, finishes, sound and their unique S.L.P. look and feel. Videos and links of the other Tama S.L.P. kits are below as well.

Tama's new Direct Flexi-Mount
Tama has brought their successful S.L.P. snare drum concept to a new level with the three drum kits. It features the new Direct Flexi-Mount mounting system. The Direct-Flexi Mount has a two-piece structure: a plate that is mounted to the shell, and another piece that holds the L-shaped rod of a tom holder or stand. Tama designed it to increase the resonance of the drums.
"This kit is gonna change the game because they are great drums, accessible to a lot of people.

If a drum is not resonating with the touch of a finger, it is not a good drum. These drums all resonate, even before tuning. These drums speak."
-Ulysses Owen Jr.
