A 7-ply maple snare drum that offers extreme sensitivity and versatility.

Yamaha developed the Sensitive Series snare drums from the very beginning to offer drummers a drum that would excel in any musical environment. From soft jazz, pop, or rock, this drum can do it all, and do it well. The shell, based on the Maple Custom, is a 7-ply shell made of North American maple.

The top bearing edge cut is 60° for more shell-to-head contact, adding warmth and body to the drum. The snare-side bearing edge cut at 45° for sensitivity and articulation. The snare beds are 2.7mm deep allowing great snare response at loose tension, yet a crisp sound without having to over-tighten the snares and choke the snare head.

The Sensitive Series drums are fitted with chrome Maple Custom style lugs and aluminum die-cast hoops. The small, one-bolt lugs allow the shell to vibrate, and the hoops are light for resonance and rigid for accurate tuning.

  • Great, but buzzy

    As reviewed by Ben Beckley on 10/5/2009

    I got this drum (6.5 x 14) because I wanted a snare that was very responsive for jazz, brushes, etc. What I didn't expect is that it is enormously punchy. I've never played a snare that had as much depth of sound or musical integrity. The only thing I don't like about it is that my 8 x 10 tom makes the snares buzz much more than on any of my other snares. I tried tigtening/loosening the snare head, loosening the snare bed lugs, various tunings of the tom, and still could not get the buzz out. Otherwise, great drum and worth the price.
