Anyone ever played one of these?



I have been tempted a few times - they're very inexpensive. Anybody know what
they sound like?

I haven't played one of these..I do own and play both the Peter Erskine sig. snares (10"&12")...they're awesome snares and can sometimes be found on ebay usually in the $200-$300 range...what is this snare selling for?...if it's less than that, you might just need to take a chance...it's a yamaha, so you know it's a quality piece...

Hi Folks
Here's mine.
Brass 14"x7" of pure drum porn.
I loved it so much I went and bought a 14"x6.5" chrome over aluminium as well.
Remo coated controlled sound batter on the brass, Evans reverse dot batter on the aluminium,
Evans Hazy 3oo reso's and 20 strand Puresound Blasters on both.
These are the best snares I have ever played and I have played a few-))
Skunk.

Yep...the 6.5's were only made for approx. 2-3 yrs. ...the serial # on mine is 0087...and I'll say this as well..I've owned both the 5.5 & 6.5...I definitely like the 6.5 better...

Yep...the 6.5 is much rarer than the 5.5, so I definitely would keep it...I've ony seen 2 or 3 6.5's on ebay in the last 5 years..and probably triple that for the 5.5's..awesome snare!

This is my Yamaha Maple Custom Definitive snare.
I rarely use this snare since I prefer my other one, but it's part of the kit so I plan to sell it with the kit.
It's 14*6, but it looks a little distorted since I used an wide angle lens for the camera.

This is my 5.5 x 14 Maple Custom Absolute snare that I got with my kit ten years ago. I just got the Vintage hoops for it a few weeks back. I love what they've done for the drum.

My 14x7 MCA with nouveau lugs in Vintage Black finish. This drum is surprisingly light because it has a thin shell and sounds amazing.

thanks scorch, I had my heart set on vintage natural but unless you're lucky enough to find one it's a special order and takes forever to get

Just scored this Yammie in excellent condition for $150.00. It's 5.5 x 14 steel shell needs new heads. Any suggestions?

Yes, I have. I picked up both the 10" and 12" recently. I also have several of the 14" version of that snare.

I clicked with the 10" snare right away. It's got a snappy, sharp sound in the center, with a nice hint of ring further towards the edge.
The 12" took a bit of fiddling to get it to a sound I like. But I haven't changed even heads on either one of them, and they sound more than good enough to use.
Both the smaller snares are excellent values, and well worth the relatively small amount they cost. I got both of them new for under $200.

Here's a pic of the 10,12 and one of the 14's:

Just picked this beauty up for $250- could almost be classified as theft. It has some minor rust on the flanged hoops but it shouldn't be hard to remove it.

This is my first snare with flanged hoops, I've always had die cast. Haven't tuned it up yet as I spent the day stripping and cleaning it up.

I see I have been lucky enough to get one Dave weckl Signature Aluminum snare in the 14"x6,5" size, unused, i didn't even know it existed with that size (i thought his old series snares were all 14x5.
I also got Two of his old maple signature snares, the ones with the aluminum rims and micro gold lugs.
I did notice thought he older one of them came with the mini lugs with the hole for the shell mounting screw closer to the edges, and the newer one has the lugs with that hole closer to the center of the shell, i will keep just one of them and besides that diffrence, they are both in mint condition...
I would like to know, if anyone knows why they changed the design of the lugs, and also if anyone knows which might be better... i have to check wich model has the Aluminum one, but i also own a Seamles custom cooper yammy, and it has the mini lugs with the shell mounting screw hole closer to the center of the shell and not the other way around.
My guess is that the lug would resist better the stress with the newer configuration....
Any opinions about this?
I will be uploading some pics to flicker or some other place and share them here later:
Thanks in advance for any info or advice on this matter!

Yes, you're right about the lugs and resisting stress. As you tighten them up they tip away from the shell slightly, yamaha obviously realised thus was bad and changed the design.

Since I posted my 6.5 on here I've picked up the original 13", and the new brass 14" so I've got all 5 now, well pleased and thinking of selling two of my ludwig milleniums and a 400B as I'll only really play Yamahas or my pearl custom classic from now on.
I believe my yamaha snares are better quality than my Ludwigs, they are better sounding and easier to get a great sound than my Ludwigs too.

I love my Yamaha Club Custom snare. I purchased it used and the previous owner had Gretsch diecast hoops on it. It did sound very nice, but I took off the diecast hoops and installed Gretsch 302 hoops I had on a Gretsch USA custom snare I had and now. Oth snares sound so much better. The Club Custom's Kapur snare is very resonant and you can get a killer crack from this snare or tune it down for a big backbeat drum. One of my favourite wood shell snares ever.
