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.
