100% Maple Shell

The Yamaha Tour Custom Snare features a 6 ply / 5.6mm all maple shell construction.

Delivering warm, bright tone this maple snare is characterised by its full low-end warmth and even amounts of mids and top end.

This snare offers superbly versatile tone making it the ideal choice for the drummer who plays everything.

From the impactful punch of rock and pop to the sensitivity and dynamics of jazz, this snare can do it all.

It’s a truly adaptable drum, making it the perfect addition to any modern drummer’s arsenal.

Nowadays drummers are consistently required to play various music styles, often playing pieces that defy genre and instead fuse aspects of all styles.

That’s why it’s necessary to have a snare drum that can quickly and easily adapt to meet the needs of a variety of musical settings.

Whether you require the power and projection needed for live situations or you want delicate sensitivity for the recording studio, this snare drum has the ability to slot into any required role.

45 Degree Bearing Edge

The maple shell of the Yamaha Tour Custom snare is finished with 45 degree bearing edges to deliver a modern tone with lots of projection.

The sharp 45 degree bearing edges serve to add great tonal depth and a quick response for a snare with a chunky sound and a deliciously fast attack.
The snare has just the right amount of sustain. A happy medium between too sparse and short and too long and overpowering. The result is a super neat, full sounding snare that never out stays its welcome.

6.5” Depth

The Yamaha Tour Custom Snares are available in 5.5” and 6.5” depth options.

This 6.5” deep snare provides slightly more substance to its sound than the shallower option, for a deeper, more robust tone with lots of body.

In comparison, the 5.5” option delivers a slightly more focussed sound, offering a more immediate, responsive tone.

Both snares deliver the same amount of versatility, projection and dynamic range, they simply offer a slight variation on the main characteristics of the snare sound allowing you to choose the model that’s better suited to your needs.

Hot Chocolate

Part of the series of sweet treat themed names, this Yamaha Tour Custom Snare is presented in a luscious Chocolate Satin finish.

Featuring a natural wood grained aesthetic, the rich, deep brown colour of the Chocolate snare shell provides a beautiful, professional overall appearance.

Please note, this snare should be used as part of a healthy balanced musical diet.

Inverse Dyna Hoops

All the snares in the Yamaha Tour Custom series are fitted with Yamaha’s proprietary 2.3mm Inverse Dyna Hoops and Remo US Ambassador drumheads.

These newly designed hoops feature an inverse lip that leans in towards the drumhead.

This design works to control the natural overtones that are typically heard in all maple snare drums.

In addition to controlling the overtones, the Yamaha Inverse Dyna Hoops also focus the fundamental tone of the shell to produce a truer representation of the shell’s direct sound.

Absolute Cast Lugs

This 10-lug snare drum is fitted with exclusive Yamaha Absolute Cast Lugs to deliver a touch of sophisticated design to the snare’s aesthetic.

Featuring a streamline triangular shape with an oval, rounded tip, these chrome lugs add a hint of class to the snare drum.

Perfectly accentuating the striking liquorice finish, this snare drum looks good enough to eat!

The Yamaha Tour Custom is a snare that exudes classiness in both its sound and aesthetic.

P Style Strainer and Butt Plate

In addition to the inverse dyna hoops, this Yamaha snare is fitted with a P Style Snare Strainer and P Style Butt End.

The improved snare throw-off has been designed to ensure ease of grip and smooth operation for quick and easy snare adjustment.

The lever of the strainer also utilises a silicon rubber to provide secure locking and quiet operation.

This means that not only is the strainer super smooth to use, it also locks securely in place to make sure your setting remains solid while you play. Plus, the silicon rubber also makes sure the strainer operates quietly for discrete on and off movement.

The Yamaha P-Style butt end ensures secure attachment of the 20-strand high carbon steel snare wires.

It also has an adjustable height feature making snare adjustment quick and easy by avoiding the need to completely remove and reattach the snare wires.

The superb, stable functionality of the strainer and butt plate provides easy to use, quickly adjustable, quiet snare setting, allowing you to achieve the exact sensitivity you require.


The Yamaha Tour Custom Snares provide high quality features and sound at a really affordable price.

The all maple shell and 45 degree bearing edges work to deliver superb warm projection and brilliant versatile tone ideal for a variety of musical styles.

Fitted with overtone controlling inverse dyna hoops, classy absolute cast lugs and the easy adjustability of the P-style strainer and butt plate, this snare features an impressive attention to detail.

Add the tasty chocolate finish to the brilliant functionality and this is a truly stunning snare in both looks and sound.

Treat yourself to versatile tone, cutting projection, superb sensitivity and stunning looks.
