At the NAMM Show next week, Tama will unveil two updated versions of Mike Portnoy's steel signature snare drums.
The first, a 5×12-inch, is exactly the same as Portnoy’s previous 12-inch model but with a new badge, an ambigram that reads “Mike Portnoy” even if you turn the drum upside down.
Tama is also introducing a 5.5×14-inch version of the Mike Portnoy’s steel signature snare, featuring the same steel shell material, matte black finish and newly designed badge.
In addition, later in 2012, Tama will announce a new wood 5.5×14-inch Mike Portnoy signature snare drum to replace his previous MP1455 Maple signature snare.
