Yamaha 13"x6.5" Sensitive Concept Snare Drum - Cherry Wood
For the drummer that needs versatility in a snare drum, the Sensitive Series can do it all. This drum works in any musical situation, live or in the studio.
We developed the Sensitive Series snare drums from the very beginning to offer drummers a drum that would excel in any musical environment. From soft jazz, pop, or rock, this drum can do it all, and do it well. The shell, based on the Maple Custom, is a 7-ply shell made of North American maple.
The top bearing edge cut is 60° for more shell-to-head contact, adding warmth and body to the drum. The snare-side bearing edge cut at 45° for sensitivity and articulation. The snare beds are 2.7mm deep allowing great snare response at loose tension, yet a crisp sound without having to over-tighten the snares and choke the snare head.
The Sensitive Series drums are fitted with chrome Maple Custom style lugs and aluminum die-cast hoops. The small, one-bolt lugs allow the shell to vibrate, and the hoops are light for resonance and rigid for accurate tuning.
Sensitive Series snare drums are available in eight, hand rubbed high-gloss finishes:
Antique Sunburst, Amber Sunburst, Black Maple, Cherry Wood, Red Pearl Natural, Sea Blue, Turquoise Maple, and Vintage Natural.
7ply Maple shell sealed by our Air-Seal System that woods cut into plies are sealed together precisely with evenly distributed air pressure.
Aluminum Die-cast Hoop (3.0mm)
The 3.0mm Aluminum Die-Cast hoop provides many of the attributes of the Zinc hoop, firmly anchors the drumhead and delivers penetrating, full-bodied rimshots, but without the extra weight. Rimshots are slightly more open, while attack and decay are magnified. This hoop fix the head securely on the bearing edge. This precise head seating promotes natural tone and minimizes sound loss.
Top : R2, 60° Bottom : R1, 45° In 40 years of product development, Yamaha has found four wood snare drum bearing edge designs that produce unique tonal character and depth. Sharp edges deliver sharper tone with excellent response and rounded angles produce a rounder, thicker tone. Varying the thickness of the radius top allows for further modification. Using different bearing designs on the top and bottom of the snare is also effective in modifying the tone.
Snare bed depth greatly influences snare effectiveness making it the most important factor in creating the snare drum sound. This model's snare bed is 2.7mm that offers greater snare sensitivity.
The number of vent holes in the shell has an impact on projection. The number of vent holes found in Yamaha snare drums will vary according to the type of tone being sought.A two-hole design like that used on the Sensitive Series offers greater response.
H type (Release) and G type (Butt)
Our lugs incorporate special lug receiving units, not springs, for seating tuning rods securely.The lugs casing are small in size, minimizing lug-to-shell contact, and incorporating nylon inserts that prevent tuning rods from loosening under heavy rimshots.
Stainless steel 20 strands (SNRS) for 14"sizes and 14 strands (SN13RS) for 13"size.*Snare Plate (Pat. Pend.)Yamaha snare plates offer superior snare to head contact due to the slight bend in their design. When the string is drawn tight, the edge of the patented snare plate is pulled upward putting the snare in full contact with the head. *Strong Snare StringsNylon strings are covered with a nylon braid for maximum strength and durability.
