This Beautiful Snare Sounds Even Better Than It Looks!The Yamaha MSD-1455 Sensitive Series maple snare drum works well for a huge range of styles and genres, giving you a big sound, great warmth, and the kind of defined crack you need for louder combos. The 14"x5.5" MSD-1455 includes a 7mm North American maple shell. Yamaha put a lot of attention into the angle of the bearing cut (60 degrees on the top, 45 degrees on the snare side), giving this snare optimum head contact, tone, and resonance. Die-cast hoops and one-bolt lugs add consistency and reliable, accurate tuning to the MSD-1455 snare.
Yamaha MSD-1455 Sensitive Series 14"x5.5" Maple Snare at a Glance:
A versatile snare that fits your style
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.
Precision-cut bearing edges add to the tone
The top bearing edge cut is 60 degrees for more shell-to-head contact, adding warmth and body to the drum. The snare-side bearing edge cut at 45 degrees 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.
Premium hoops and lugs make it easy to tune accurately
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.

This is a very good snare drum
by Ron from Bakersfield, CaI own two other snare drums, the Mapex Black Panther Phat bob and a DW Snare. Both are good snare drums but I was looking for a snare that had a defined crack that could be used for county and classi... read more [+]c rock. Basically I wanted an all-around snare drum. So I started looking and found the Yamaha MSD-1455.

Music Background: Drummer since 1970
From out of the box to playing was about 30 min. A quick tune with the drum dial and a trip around the rim a number of times and it was ready to go.
I practiced for about two hours at home and decided to take the Yamaha to band rehearsal that evening.
I have taken the phat bob and the DW to rehearsal and nobody in the band has said a word but after rehearsal, the band leader came up to me and said, “Man that new snare sounds great.” Yea, it did.
It’s not that the phat bob or DW sounded bad this Yamaha MSD-1455 just sounds really good.
The price of this drum is up there and I pondered over it for a number of months. But given the sound, the ease of tuning and its good looks, I’m very glad that I bought it.
I do not know how it will stand up over time, but it seems to be built very well.
Check it out, it may be right for you as well. close [-]
