Cuts like a chainsaw, yet has a warm ambiance.

The steel shell of the Jimmy Chamberlin snare drum has the ability to cut through the music while the satin chrome finish gives it the warmth to be used in any musical situation.

Steel shells have the brightest tone of Yamaha's metal shell snare drums. The Jimmy Chamberlin Signature snare has a satin chrome finish that controls the shell and adds warmth to the drum.

The small chrome maple custom-style lugs are durable to withstand high-tension and the minimum contact area doesn't restrict the shells resonance.

The H type strainer has the normal tension adjustment, and the G type butt side also has tension adjustment making it easy to keep the snares centered on the snare side head.

The Aluminum die-cast hoops are rigid to give you precise tuning. They are much lighter in weight than a zinc die cast hoop so that the drum can open up and resonate to it's full potential.

  • Size: 5-1/2" x 14"
  • Shell: 1.2mm steel
  • Hoops: aluminum die-cast
  • Snare: 20-strand hi-carbon steel
  • Batter head: Remo coated Ambassador

Great Sounding Drum

By Pearl MMX Fan

from NYC Metro Area

Comments about Yamaha Jimmy Chamberlin Signature Steel Snare Drum:

I'm a drummer of 15 years and Jimmy was my main inspiration to start. I received my drum this morning with the factory remo head on it. First I tuned it tight on top and just a bit lower on the bottom head, finding it to produce an incredible sounding steel piccolo style. I then lowered the top batter head a fair amount and locked in to that classic steel snare sound. Very reminiscent of that vintage ludwig sound or a sensitone sound but with improved response and sound control. The way the snare has a distinctive metal tinge to the strike but never has an over ring amazes me! Only negative so far is this factory head seems to slip out of tune more easily than my pearl mmx snare. Best feature is that you can tune the snare from BOTH SIDES! Thats right, there is a snare adjuster on both sides of the drum. This allows you to easily make sure the snare is always centered on the bottom head! Sounds especially great for rock and reggae IMHO.
