Overview

Live Custom series drums are designed with a greater focus on playing in live situations using 1.2mm oak plies that are 10% thicker than those used on Yamaha's Oak Custom drums. Tom, floor tom and snare drum shells are comprised of a six-ply design.

The Live Custom delivers a sound with greater strength and depth, provides rich expressive power that exceeds your imagination, and features hardware designed with some new, innovative ideas that delivers incredible stability and reliability even in the demanding environment of the stage. Oak's sound is clear and well defined with a powerful low-end that shakes your soul. On stage, and in the studio as well, Live Custom delivers a fat, rich tone with awe-inspiring presence.

Oak is the way to go

Comments about Yamaha Live Custom Snare Drum:

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. This is my first oak snare and I don't think I'll ever be turning back. Tunes up like a champ. Has a great high end crack with a good amount of low end to fill out the rest of the spectrum.

Comments about Yamaha Live Custom Snare Drum:

Right out the box this snare sounded fantastic, but it wasn't until I changed out the OE head and played it on stage that it truely came to life. I have seven snares in my collection from all the top manufactures you can think of, but they all fall flat compared to this snare. This is now my first choice for all my live gigs. Buying this snare was also the deciding factor in purchasing and entire "Yamaha Live Oak Custom" drum set. Well, I'm definetly getting the set. Thanks Yamaha!!
