Born for the stage. Made using traditional handcrafting techniques the Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid 14″ x 5.5″ Snare Drum is an instrument to be treasured for generations. A perfect blend of power and articulation is achieved by a hybrid shell of oak and phenolic sheets. This shell concept is taken from Yamahas flagship PHX and Absolute Hybrid Maple series drum kits so the Hybrid Oak Snare is certainly in good company. The shells are finished using strict Japanese methods accentuating the natural beauty of the oak grain. The result – a snare drum thats as striking visually as it is sonically. Youll master any style or genre that you call your own.
