Tama has brought their successful Sound Lap Project (S.L.P.) snare drum concept to a new level with the three drum kits the company officially launched at the 2018 NAMM Show. The Dynamic Capur, the Studio Maple and the Fat Spruce all come with their own specs, finishes, sound and, of course; their unique S.L.P. look and feel. Below is the complete rundown of the first drum set that we feature: the Tama S.L.P. Dynamic Kapur Drum Kit, including a drum solo of Rodney Holmes.
S.L.P. Dynamic Kapur Drum Kit This kit has an all Kapur Shell. Kapur (or Kapor) is a tall forest tree found in the rainforests of Malaysia, Indonesia and South-East Asia. When manufactured as drums, the result is an open lively sound with a good projection. The volume of the drums tends to be high but the sound is deep, dry and warm.

Specs S.L.P. Dynamic Kapur
The toms and floor tom are 6ply, 5mm
The bass drum is 7ply, 6mm
Sound Arc Hoops This hoop was specially developed for S.L.P. snare drums. It is an inward curved 2.3mm steel hoop that enhances the natural tone of the snare drum.
Hyper-Drive Toms Hyper-Drive is Tama's standard depth size on tom toms. Tama claims they are easier to tune, have more punch, attack and the sizes have a rich full tone.
Star-Mount System This mount attaches straight to the lugs/hoop of your drum. It has support at four points on the batter side hoop of a drum.
