D Mail A Link To This Page To A Friend! DGo To The Music Connection "New Toys" Directory

The Yamaha copper snare drum balances the warmth of brass with the sharpness of steel. The copper drum speaks better at lower playing dynamics yet doesn't distort at loud levels. There are three models available all 14 inches in diameter: 3 1/2 inches, 5 inches and 6 1/2 inches. All three drums use 10 compact, one-piece lugs and 2.3 mm steel triple flange rims. (Actually the look of this drum first attracted my attention to write about it)

The seamless copper shell is 1.2 mm thick. There are 20-strand hard high-carbon steel snare wires and high-gloss clear lacquer finish. The suggested retail price for the 3 1/2 is $555, $565 for the 5 inch and $580 for the 6 1/2 inch. For much more about these drums you should contact Yamaha Corporation of America, Band & Orchestra Division, 3445 East Paris Ave., S.E., Grand Rapids, MI 49512.
