Precise tuning used to take years of experience, and tuning each drum often felt like it took years. Not anymore. The TW100 measures actual head tension and features an easy-to-read meter, so you can record the numbers and duplicate your best tuning time after time. You can also use the sample tunings suggested in the directions. Either way, the Tension Watch lets you spend more time playing and less time tuning.
The first timekeeper designed specifically for the band’s timekeeper, TAMA’s Rhythm Watch had everything a drummer needed to make sure the time was right—live and in the studio. The original Rhythm Watch featured enough volume to play with real drums, a large, easy-to-read display, a dial for quick tempo adjustments, separate volumes for quarter notes, eighths and triplets…the list went on and on. The second generation RW105 features a backlit display, 30 different memory settings, and up to nine different beat divisions. The only thing we didn’t change was the simplicity.
Tama’s unique Iron Cobra Beater guarantees a flat hit every time. Since Iron Cobra was created, Tama has increased the size of the beater for fuller tone while actually decreasing the weight. The beater balancer offers the fastest way to achieve different responses.
Specially designed for the Speed Cobra to give the bass drum more sound projection and rich resonance. The convex head shape focuses the power generated by the beater stroke’s action to the smaller surface area. This angle gives you a more focused attack and punchy sonic penetration. Rotate the beater head for larger surface contact and get a fatter sound with extremely powerful volume.
