20 strand snare wire equipped,and Steve Gadd signature 10 strand snare wire bundled(14”x5.5”).The drum includes the snare wire that Steve prefers to use.This is a 14 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 of our design by Steve Gadd, we have created a groundbreaking snare drum.To date, Yamaha’s snare drums have traditionally had the metal center bead on the interior of the drum. However, we have 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.
