Audiofanzine FR's review

Tama Mike Portnoy Signature
(Originally written by minix/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I bought this snare in December 2008 and I'm fully satisfied with it!

I like:

- the warm sound

- the huge attack, especially on rim shots (it sounds like a gunshot)!

- exceptional acoustic power (take care of your ears)

- three-position strainer that allows me to switch between fat and dry sounds depending on the music I play

- Beautiful custom finish

I also tried out a Starclassic Bubinga Omnitune 5.5 x 14 when I bought it. The Starclassic provides the same attack and power (perhaps even more) and it is cheaper, but it didn't look as good as the Melody Master (the name of Mike Portnoy's Signature model)...

Tama Mike Portnoy Signature
. Acquired in September 2003
. Key points that made me choose this snare:
- Double Trigger
- Responsiveness
- Sensitivity
- Clarity of sound
- Awesome power
. Cons:
- Metallic timbre average bill
- Not cast circles (weight gain was he looking for?)
- Snare drum moves a lot during prolonged use
(Set of skins for all perfectionists about 1:30 in studio)
. Compared to (strictly personal opinion):
- Dave Weckl Signature Snare Drum (Yamaha): body but too dull to extraordinary precision
- Steve Gadd Signature Snare Drum (Yamaha): no double trigger, requires a different snare drum as musical atmosphere needs
. Quality / price ratio:
prices in September 2003: approximately € 1,000, satisfactory report.
(I am not the absolute fan of Mike Portnoy
. If it was not a question of money, I would take two rather different snares for my work on the sound rather than one (go to Ray Barretto Korn is not easy;)
