Yamaha Loud Series 14" x 5.5" Wood Snare Musashi Black
The heart of the Loud Series snare drums is their 8-ply oak shell. This shell gives these snare drums the ability to cut through loud music without sounding brittle. Oak has a low fundamental and lots of warmth, but without losing the high-end frequencies. The bearing edge cut is 45° for attack and articulation, the snare beds cut 2.7mm deep for great snare response at all dynamic levels. The shells are drilled with eight air vents to dry the tone a bit, adding more clarity and control in situations where the drums are mic'd. All of this means that even though these drums can be loud, they do not have to be. They have great response even at low dynamic levels, making them suitable for players of all styles. To make these drums look as striking as they sound, they are fitted with10-lug 2.3mm steel Dynahoops and 20 offset lugs, and the hardware is finished in a beautiful dark-chrome finish.
