Product Description

Rich, symphonic sound for professional performance situations.


Created Specifically for the Orchestra
For nearly 40 years Yamaha has designed premium snare drums for many genres of music. Creating the ultimate orchestral snare drums demanded new ideas, new designs and new materials. With guidance from world-renowned percussionists, Yamaha pursued its objective by starting fresh. The first step was inventing an entirely new strainer system (patent pending). Then Yamaha developed an innovative three-piece tubular lug and chose to use three separate snares on each drum. Additionally, Yamaha selected 10-ply maple for the shells. The results of this intense creative process are three exciting, distinctive instruments that truly live up to their name: Yamaha Grand Symphonic Concert Snare Drums.

Silent Throw-off System
The smooth action of this new system eliminates all contact noise when engaging the snares. The three individually-tensioned snares are easy to attach for quick head changes and tuning.

Triple Snare System
Three snares ensure a bright, defined tone, even when playing pianissimo. A fourth snare, made of high-carbon steel, is included.

New Double-Cut Edge (30º/45º)
This unique approach allows the middle ply of the shell to vibrate first so the entire shell vibrates faster. This results in a more focused and articulate sound.

Maple Shells
The maple shells feature a 10-ply maple design with Renaissance Diplomat® heads for a vibrant, colorful tone while allowing a wide dynamic range.

Deep Snare Bed
A deeper bed for the bottom head gives a quicker snare response and a crisper tone. Additionally, the rounded edge improves both response and tuning accuracy.

Tube Lugs
A new three-piece tubular lug was designed to reduce shell contact and improve resonance, thus enhancing the natural vibration and tone of the shell.
