    got this a few days ago, amazing snare for the price, got the ten lug version, tunes up tight and has an amazingly sharp crack with a stinging rimshot, goes well with my gretsch catalina club kit ...

      Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Snare:

      A longtime friend and bass player purchased this snare drum for me to go along with the Yamaha Stage Custom Birch kit he "gifted" me last June 2015. I have a Ronn Dunnett Stainless Steel shell 6.5" x 14" snare drum as well. The Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Shell is as extraordinary sounding as the much more expensive Dunnett snare I have. For the money, you can not beat this Yamaha snare!!!!

        Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Snare:

        I bought a DDrum Diablo Punx kit ab out 10 years ago and have been using the included snare until I purchased this snare. It was on sale so I went for it and I love it! Huge sound, great tone and attack for rock.

        I would think this would be a step up from any included kit snare from the past, so if you are looking to give your older kit some spunk, this works great. I'm still using the stock heads and impressed, I will get some Remos later but after tuning it was ready to play and sounds good.

            Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Snare:

            The shell is made well, just look at the excellent robot welded seam. The lugs and nuts are sturdy enough for any tuning. The strainer is also quite functional once you oil it. I tuned it to Bonham's snare pitch with a Tunebot, 295 batter and 400 resonant, and it sounds perfect. It has a nice open ring that's very musical and harmonious, gel is unnecessary for this drum unless you're going for a muffled fat sound. It is very sensitive and rolls are consistent from the edge to center, and crisp.
            In general I can't believe the quality of this drum and it's awesome sound, especially for the low price tag. If it was a car we would call it a "sleeper". That is, you may overlook it - until you take it for a test-drive. No doubt it's the best value in any drum I've ever bought.

              Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Steel Snare:

              Definitely an overlooked snare! This was at my local Guitar Center and didn't recognize it right away because I wasn't familiar with a lot of Yamaha products and the logo & price tag were facing away from me. If you're in the market for a metal snare, check this one out! Great price, great sound! Being a steel snare, it's on the brighter, higher pitched spectrum but it can definitely deliver sensitivity. It came with stock Yamaha heads but can really be transformed with higher quality heads, the snare wires are great too! Overall a great value and a wonderful snare!

                  I own several snares from Pearl, Gretsch, Ludwig and this Yamaha. This Yamaha is second only to My 1980 Ludwig 6 1/2 Hand Hammered Bronze (a $900 snare) that should give you and idea of how good it is. Use an Evans HD dry head for best sound and overtone control. Go buy one!

                  This gives me the punch I was looking for. My other snare drums were wood, and I use them in my other bands. I needed a heavier rock sound for my rock band that I play with and this gives me the cutting through snare sound that I needed!
