Fantastic Snare

14.11.2016
I purchased the snare drum to complete my Live Custom kit. I'd originally planned on using it as an auxiliary snare but quickly became my main snare. The attack is fantastic and more pronounced than that of maple shells. I tune my snare quite high and the response I get from this snare is unbelievable especially with rim-shots. It's very sensitive too. Whichever way you hit it always gives the sound you're expecting.

Greatest sounding snare for me so far! Especially if you are into metal you should give it a try! I cannot think of any cons, I own this yamaha snare since 2013 and I even still use the stock drum head. AWESOME snare!
