Lars Ulrich Talks Signature Snare Drum; Video
A seven-and-a-half-minute video clip of Metallica's Lars Ulrich talking about his diamond-plate model signature snare drum from Tama can be viewed below.
It takes an extremely powerful snare drum to stand up to Metallica's incredible sound pressure levels. Actually, Lars Ulrich has two that can handle the job. The LU1465BB is the Lars' legendary bell brass model (which, amazingly, is also capable of incredible sensitivity). Hoops of die-cast zinc provide even more attack and low-end. The LU1465 is a diamond-plated monster made of a 3mm slab of steel. It's got a power and attack as impressive as its more expensive bell brass counterpart.
