Newly Designed One-Piece Lug: STAR snare drum lugs were designed with a clean look and bridge construction for minimum shell contact.
"Linear-Drive" Strainer: (MLS50A) The "Linear-Drive" strainer is designed for greater control of the lever adjustment arm and more precise control of the strainer's deployment motion. The strainer movement works in a true linear motion. Even if the strainer is engaged rapidly, you will not hear the typical "slap" of the snare wires hitting the bottom drumhead.
Air Hole: STAR snare drums have 3 air holes around the shell, these extra air holes lend a brighter, dryer sound to the snare drums and results in even projection in all directions.
Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare: The Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon snappy snare features a specialized plate and winding pattern for the wire coils, and is made of hi-carbon steel. This results in a very crisp, sensitive snare sound on all STAR snare drums.
Snappy Bed: The shape of the snare beds is an important factor in any snare drum's sound. In particular, the sustain and sensitivity of the snare wires are heavily affected by the shape of the snare beds. STAR snare drums employ a different snare bed than TAMA's traditional shape. The goal was to create snare drums that have the same rich resonance as the rest of the STAR drums, but that are also very crisp and articulate. To achieve this, STAR snare drums have a flat bottom that provides even and consistent contact with each snare coil.
