Default Show Off Your Yamaha....SNARE DRUMS!

Here's the original version of the Akira Jimbo snare drum. It's got a maple shell and Maple Custom hoops. Note the screwed-on badge. There's one on eBay in the USA right now.

Here's my Dave Weckl signature snare.. Stainless shell that I stripped and had copper plated... Great fat sound out of it.. unbelievable power out of it... so much so that I hardly get to use it... In time I suppose.

I love both those drums, they look tasty!

Not the best picture, but this is what my wifey got me last year for my birthday. It's a 14x7 Brass with the nouveau lugs. Big snare, big sound, lots of sensativity!

Dang billkay... You really enjoy those signature models huh? There are some fine looking snares in this thread.

EDIT: Although I won't be able to take advantage of this opportunity, if anyone wants to join the ranks of those above in this thread, here's your chance... someone's getting a nice deal on this piccolo. There's a handful other yammie snares on eBay too.

Ugh...just when I thought it was safe to look at this thread again, along comes an opportunity for another beautiful brass Yammie on Ebay! Well, I must resist the temptation to round out the collection (since I already have the 6.5 and the 5 inch model). Sooooo... come on Yammie sensitive model with vintage finish, just a couple more weeks before it comes to the front door!

Aaaah!! You ordered a sensitive?? I'm green with jealous. I saw that snare and thought, "I need to own it". Don't forget to throw some pics up here!

My Yamaha snares:



14x3,5 Yamaha brass piccolo (the pre decessor of the Garibaldi Sig)
13x6,5 Yamaha birds-eye maple prototype (at the end they never used birds-eye on production models, only on the 100 Centennial 1889-1989 kits) It has the sensativity of the new ''Sensative'' line.
10x5 Yamaha custom (transforemd stage custom with maple custom strainers and a kick ass sound one of my oldest snares for over 5 years)
12x5,5 aluminium (no Yamaha, but a ass kickin favourite :P)

On the wish list:
A Yamaha Custom snare (or multiple, like a 13 and 10)
Bamboo 14x6,5 or 12x6,5
Peter Erskine 10x3,5 sig.
Akira original maple sig,
Carbon Custom snare that was made for Tommy Aldridge.
Vinnie Colauta sig

Well after only a two week wait, my new Yamaha Sensitive Snare with vintage finish came in today. I'm so happy. The drum is truly sensitive and beautiful to look at. It has a warm sweet sound with a nice dynamic-range. It should be great for jazz with brushes or maybe even orchestral snare work. So...here it is !

I just bought this Yamaha snare off of Craigslist. It is a 14x6.5 Recording Custom SD965MA I have it all apart and I am going to get the shell re-chromed. I have 10 brand new lugs for it and the hoops look great. Not bad for $25.....it will be beautiful again very soon.

I got this drum in the 1980's, Yamaha Recording Custom, White Lacquer... What do you think its worth? its a 14x8, and this birch drum sounds amazing.
Pay no attention to the batter head, it came off a students drum. I think this drum is a little rare? Took the die cast hoop off the batter side and put it in my dw VLT.
I am wanting to get rid of it... have too many snares that I don't use.

Does anyone here know of a Dave Weckl aluminium that was 6.5 inches deep instead of 5.5, I have had one for a while and can't find any info about it anywhere on the net, I have the 5.5 as well, but I already know that's worth more than the £200 I paid. (not selling, just trying to find out more)

Cheers,

Chris

Those brass snares sound as good as black beauties.

Unfortunately they don't have die cast hoops.

I enjoyed this snare so much I decided to put Stellar hoops and a Trick throw on it. Would love to own the 13" version.

Hey there FB. I like the Kabuto, however I just picked up a Musashi Oak and I'm afraid the Kabuto might sit in a case for awhile. I found the Kabuto on eBay (not new, but new condition) for much less than retail price. I've seen new ones on eBay for 50% of retail. They have made a couple of minor changes to the drum. Looking at stock photos they now have nylon tuning rod washers and a centered badge.

I put Reverse Power Center / Hazy 300 heads on it as well as Puresound Custom 20 strand wires. It does sound good.

I love those hoops, but what's so special about the Trick throw off??
Many custom companies have Trick throw offs, but why?

Heres mine, 1980's 14" x 8" Recording Custom (FOR SALE IN THE UK)

Funny that when you take photos of it, it appears slightly Orangem but in "real life" it is a "fire engine" red. Hmmm.

This is my 1968 Yamaha snare drum, Blue Willow wrap, from a D20 kit, which was one of Yamaha's first run of drumsets.

The bearing edges are in relatively good condition (for being older than I am!).

It's hand made from solid high strength aluminum, smoothe as silk, notched tensioning knob. The quality is top notch IMO. I have a Dunnett R class throw on a custom snare that is very nice but the overall quality and craftsmanship of the Trick is hard to beat. You just need to try one and see, I guarantee you will want one on your favorite snare.

I love everything Yamaha, especially snares. Does anyone have a 14 x 7 Oak or a Paul Leim Signature? I'd love to check those monsters out!

The quality might be excellent, but personally I don't like the looks very much. In my opinion it's too big, or does it just look big on the photo??

I think it looks big because the diameter of the drum is only 12".
