LOS ANGELES, CA.  1/13/2023

TAMA announced that it is proud to release the ‘Kenny Aronoff 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Snare Drum’ in celebration of their 40 year relationship with the iconic drummer which began in 1982.

Over the last 40 years, Aronoff has recorded drums on albums with over 300 million units sold; more than 1,300 of which are RIAA certified Gold, Platinum, or Diamond.

To commemorate the long-standing and treasured relationship, TAMA has partnered with legendary master engraver, John Aldridge, to produce an extremely limited number of beautifully hand engraved snare drums. Limited to only 30 pieces worldwide, these extremely special snare drums feature a one-of-a-kind design hand drawn by famed Los Angeles based tattoo artist, Corey Miller.

Furthering their limited nature, Aldridge engraves each drum with extremely subtle variations in the design, resulting in no two drums being alike. Completing this uniquely limited snare drum, Kenny’s handwritten signature is engraved onto each shell. Finally, finished with a special 40th Anniversary badge and serialized hand-signed Signature Palette sticker, this truly one-of-a-kind snare drum proves itself to be an extraordinary tribute to this historic occasion.

“This unique snare created by TAMA captures my sound beautifully, and I’m honored to make it available to the public”, said Aronoff.
