I've been using this snare for three years now. It has a high pitched dry sound that I would liken to a piccolo snare. It is extremely loud as well. Rim shots are nothing short of explosive. I don't have to mic it when I play smaller 200-300 capacity venues. But the fact is, I can't get it to sound like anything other than a heavy metal or reggae snare. The snare throw is cheap and the drum just won't stay tuned. One tuning lug on the batter side in particular comes loose after only a few songs and I have to retune after every set. Bottome line, I love the sound of this drum when it is working correctly but that doesn't last long. I've been wanting a new snare for some time now.

    Do you want to rock?

    By Thundergod

    Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

    I've owned the 13 for two years now. it's one of my favorites from my collection to use live. But I prefer a metal drum to record with... This drum is SUPER LOUD.. It sounds decent tuned low, but sounds amazing cranked up a bit. I use an aquarian hi-energy batter, and a classic clear snare side... It's very responsive at high or low volumes ... I would say this is the best snare for the money.

    Great Snare Drum

    Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

    I have been playing drums for over thirty years. After owning a Musashi snare for almost a year, I am completely overwhealmed by it's performance. This drum possesses that highly sought after "crack" plus the warmth that make it the complete snare drum that most eperienced drummers are seeking in this day and age. Please don't miss the opportunity to own one of these drums. I've played DW, Pearl, Noble & Cooley, and this snare can compete with any of the higher echelon brands. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own one.

    Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

    Excellent thick oak shell.
    Fair hoops.
    Heads need replacement with a more dry
    batter, and more sensitive resonant head.
    Strainer mechanism ok, but recommend
    replacing wires.
    Good snare, easily tunable.
    Great deal for the price

    Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

    I recently purchased the 13" Musashi snare drum and am totally impressed with the quality and versatility of this drum. It is loud; but also allows graceful ghost notes. I currently own over 40 snare and this is definitely one of my favorites. Very versatile: at home at outdoors gigs and worship services. I would not hesitate to use this snare in any musical setting.

    Exactly what I wanted

    By Wrath 222

    from Medford, MA.

    Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

    Beautiful, solid drum. I tune it up high with the Genera dry head(no ringing ,no buzz) and get the sharp high pitched crack like a metal drum, but not over the top.( I had tried out the Pearl Chad Smith Signiture)It has depth to the sound just like many here who reviewed it said. It is the exact sound I was looking for. What can I say I'm in love!

    Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

    I recently acquired one of these drums.I was hesitant due to it being a 13" drum.It ROCKS!!I have over 15 snare drums and this one has quickly become one of my favorites. It has great response and tuning range.I keep it a little lower for a sick back beat.
