A 7-ply maple snare for extreme sensitivity and versatility.

Yamaha developed the Sensitive Series snare drums from the very beginning to offer drummers a drum that would excel in any musical environment. From soft jazz, pop, or rock, this drum can do it all, and do it well. The shell, based on the Maple Custom, is a 7-ply shell made of North American maple.

The top bearing edge cut is 60 for more shell-to-head contact, adding warmth and body to the drum. The snare-side bearing edge cut at 45 for sensitivity and articulation. The snare beds are 2.7mm deep allowing great snare response at loose tension, yet a crisp sound without having to over-tighten the snares and choke the snare head.

The Sensitive Series drums are fitted with chrome Maple Custom style lugs and aluminum die-cast hoops. The small, one-bolt lugs allow the shell to vibrate, and the hoops are light for resonance and rigid for accurate tuning.

Comments about Yamaha Sensitive Series Snare Drum:

Has controlled high overtones, bright Maple sound with good solid depth - better then my Taye stainless steel 6.5" which has a very good sound & my thick Peavey RBS 1 snare which has a very loud attack. It's very sensitive as it's name implies; nice crack ! great rim shot. Easy to get a good sound out of it. Not too much snare buzz. I'm very pleased with it. Now I just need a gig.
