Order before 3pm Mon-Fri for Next Day Delivery

Designed to articulate attack and projection, this snare is the perfect purchase for a drummer wanting their sound to be dynamic on stage.

Crafted to Cut Through

When it comes to Yamaha, nothing is a half measure, and that's the case with this melancholy rich offering. The Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak Snare features a constructed blend of a phenolic centre ply and a predominant oak wood shell, giving you an improved shell life, dynamic range and sustain. Raising the low tones and removing those unnecessary frequencies.

Due to the oak wood's characteristics, the hybrid shells provide you with a 14 x 5.5 inch snare made for ultimate vigorous projection, without losing any sound quality in the process.

This Yamaha snare is the perfect addition for those drummers who play fast, hit hard, and want their playing to cut through the live mix.

Yamaha Live Custom 14 x 5.5in Snare Drum Uzu Earth Sunburst Features:

  • The Absolute single-post lug maximizes shell integrity and promotes maximum resonance and open tone
  • The traditional, Japanese Uzukuri finish creates a unique look that defines the expression of oak
  • Staggered diagonal seams with Air Seal system construction for consistency, strength and wide tuning range
  • 2.3 mm DynaHoop offers a tighter sound and tuning stability
  • Dark chrome hardware creates an aggressive look for a dominating stage presence

Expressive Design

Presented with a traditional Japanese "Uzukuri" finish, the snare showcases a stunning textured finish via a brushing technique that only carves the softer grain of the wood. Showing off the characteristics of the oak wood.

In addition, the dark chrome hardware that comes with the Live Custom Hybrid Snare makes sure that not only does it sound dominating, but it also looks it too.

High-Class Stability

To ensure that this snare maintains Yamaha's high standards, it comes included with their exclusive Absolute single-post lugs. Ensuring that your snare has the utmost resonance and open tone that's achievable!

Due to snare drums overall requiring a much higher amount of tension, the addition of this feature really makes it a must-buy for drummers.

But there's more, the snare's 2.3mm Dyna Hoop Rim provides a tighter, refined sound, along with better tuning stability. Giving you the peace of mind that your sound will remain consistent whatever the scenario.
