The Yamaha Tour Custom wood snare drum has a very wide tuning range and great sensitivity, so it's at home on the road playing large venues or around town on a club date.
Tour Custom drum shells are 100% maple for lots of warmth and resonance and have a wide tuning range. The wood snare drum has body, yet plenty of high end and is very articulate at all dynamic levels.
The Tour Custom snare drum has 60 R2 bearing edges. This is something new for Yamaha on a maple shell drum set. This bearing edge has a rounder profile so that there is more shell to head contact. This gives the drums clarity in the low-end fundamental and added warmth.
All Yamaha wood drums have one thing in common. Yamaha's craftsmen create every drum shell using the exclusive staggered diagonal seam, Air Seal System just as they have since 1967. Each two or three-ply œmaster ply is cut to length to very precise tolerance with a diagonal cut on each end. The diagonal seam in the drum shell will not separate, eliminating the need to fill gaps in the bearing edge with filler putty. These plies have glue applied and are then put into the mold by hand, one master play at a time. The craftsman then inserts an air bag into the mold and inflates it, œclamping the shell with even pressure 360 degrees around. This process creates a shell that is strong, starts round, and stays round for many years.

This snare is amazing. the tones and the depth of it gives a wonderful crack for rock. Also, with a lighter head or a higher snare tuning, then this snare works great for jazz. It is wonderful for the player who needs an all purpose snare for your basic genres. With head choice it would sound good or great in any situation.
