Get Crisp And Articulate Tone With The Yamaha 14" x 8" Recording Custom Wood Snare Drum

Borrowing from over 50 years of drum craftsmanship, the Recording Custom wood snare drum delivers a wide tuning range, moderate attack and dynamic response that the world's greatest studio drummers crave.

The 6-ply, 6 mm 100% birch shells have a unique sonic characteristic that ensures each stroke speaks clearly. The 30-degree bearing edges deliver a sharp response and clear snare sensitivity across the dynamic range. The shells have a wide tuning range, respond well to different head choices and are easy to tune.

The revamped modern design retains the traditional essence of the Recording Custom. In order to maximize the attenuating properties of the birch wood, the one-piece lug design ensures optimum sustain of the core sound producing a crisp, articulate tone.

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