OVERVIEW

An aluminum snare drum with a dry, open tone for session work or live play.

The Recording Custom series now offers some of Yamaha’s finest snare drums, using Steve Gadd's valuable input to its maximum. It adds a superb consistency, allowing drummers to fully utilize the sound functionality of the kit.

The 14 x 5-1/2 in. model includes the snare wires that Steve prefers to use. This is a 10-strand snare wire with the middle four strands removed. This special snare wire enhances the cutoff of the sound, enabling the artist to produce a crisper staccato tone.

After repeated evaluations by Steve Gadd with Yamaha design, the result was a groundbreaking snare drum. To date, Yamaha’s snare drums have traditionally had the metal center bead on the interior of the drum. However, Yamaha has taken the step of fixing the center bead to the outside of the drum to produces a more open sound than our conventional drums, for crisp, articulate performance.

The heavy-duty Q-type strainer is robust whilst offering solid, stable and smooth operation, along with adjustment and snare replacement.
