When you're battling multiple guitars for a place in the mix, not just any drum kit will do. The Tansen JBP0208 cuts through today's music with a clean, focused attack and style to match. Acoustically, each shell's hand-selected maple core boasts a familiar bite and sensitivity - one that drummers of all backgrounds will enjoy. And come showtime, the Tansen's birch inner and outer plies focus attack for a tight, modern, close-miked sound. Tansen's bearing edges seat drumheads flat on the shell, providing a wide tuning range and pure, deep fundamentals. And the option to choose from five wood or steel snare drums makes the Tansen JBP0208 a clear winner for today's gear-savvy performer.
