      I am trying different heads to find out what works best for me.I like this snare and would recommend it to my friends. For this price range if you are looking for a steel snare in this size configuration. By all means do buy the Stage Custom by Yamaha.

        Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Snare:

        Counter hoops are cheap, thin and ugly but replacing with better ones like dw true hoops or die cast ones hoops is an easy way to add substance and body to the overall tone. The drum is bright and has a lot of ring but with right heads and proper tuning it sings beautifully. Lugs and shell are high quality and it tunes easily.

          Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Snare:

          I play a Stage Custom kit and this snare is a great addition. It was practically ready to go right out of the box. After swapping out the stock heads for Evans 360's and some minor tweaking, I had the sound I was looking for. Granted, it is NOT an expensive snare and shouldn't be expected to have that kind of quality build or sound however, for the money, you can't beat it.

                Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Snare:

                I bought this guy based on the other Musicians Friend reviews and i couldn't be happier! Yes the snare drum did arrive with some loose lugs as a previous commenter indicated, but who expects drums to arrive in the mail perfectly in tune? Upon arrival i used the stock heads once at band practice, but due to being a heavy hitter i wore off the coating after a single session, but even with the stock head this snare was huge, the tone and sheer volume it put out was pretty amazing. After that session i immediately changed to a 42-Strand Strainer and a Remo Powerstroke 77 Coated head and i am absolutely blown away by how powerful this snare is considering the relatively cheap price i paid for it. In closing i would highly recommend this snare for anyone who wants that huge phat snare drum sound, because that's exactly what this guy does!

                    You would swear your playing a Ludwig Supraphonic with this gem, beautifully made, fantastic sound, comes with a dampening ring and tuning key. You can't beat it, really at any price. Musicians Friend got mine to me in four days and I'm very happy with their service.

                      I was skeptical because I ordered it online without hearing it first, but reading reviews helped me decide. Sounds awesome!
