Tama 6.5x14" "Omnitune" Snare Drum
A 6.5x14" Tama "Omnitune" model snare drum. The 3 way tuning design is derived from Billy Gladstone's system of tuning both heads from the top, using a special key. The system allows you to tune the top head on its own; the bottom head on its own; or both together, and all of the tuning is done from the top head via the special 3 way tuning key which is included. This is a masterful design invented by Billy Gladstone back in the 30s. Saves a LOT of time. Think about this: If you are in the studio and have the right combination between top and bottom heads, but suddenly need the next track to have a deep, loose sound, you can simply take the portion of the key that locks onto BOTH the top and bottom head nuts and then tune the drum down while keeping the same ratio of tension between the top and bottom heads. Amazing device. And, if you need to adjust the bottom head a bit you can do that without removing the drum from the stand by just locking onto the square nut on the top tuning rod, which adjusts the bottom head. And, to adjust only the top head just lock the hex portion of the key onto the hex nut on the top tuning rod. Incredible. This drum has some plastic tuning locks on some of the lugs but those can be removed if you desire. Mint condition.
