Tama is set to unveil two new updated Mike Portnoy signature snares.

The first of the two steel snares is a 12"x5" drum featuring a new ambigram badge that rather coolly reads Mike Portnoy even when turned upside-down. Stylish.

Also on the way is a14"x5.5" version of Portnoy's signature snare featuring a matte black finish and new badge.

A new Portnoy maple snare is also on the way later this year, with details still to be announced.
