      Incredibly crisp and full-bodied tone in a flyweight snare!

      The Yamaha SD-3455 Aluminum Snare is lightweight yet strong, with a warm dry tone that's great for either stage or studio performance. The detachable strainer and butt allow you to remove the snare wires for snare side head changes and re-attach them quickly with a single drum key-screw. A tension indicator allows you to easily adjust your snares to the same tension when changing snare wires.

      Heavyweight sounds from this lightweight wonder! Order now.

      Versatile snare.

      Comments about Yamaha Aluminum Snare:

      I haven't seen many of these around, but I owe one, and it has been great for both live and recording situations. I was looking for a wood-snare to complement my 14x5,5 brass, but by "accident" ended up with one of these. I have the 6,5 version and it can be tuned in many ways.I tune mine quite high and get a nice rimshot. Great rock-snare, but I guess fine for jazz and everything. Very articulate ghoststrokes. Aluminium is softer and gives a dryer sound than steel, but don't worry, it will be heard.
