      Sharp, yet rounded enough to hit the sweet spot with every pop. Masterful at delivering flawless sound. The core sound of the Yamaha Recording Custom Snare is crisp, clear articulation, embodied in vintage warmth. A perfect balance of highs and lows. Birch shells ensure tone is aggressive and bright, but blended nicely with enhanced bass frequencies.

With a classy aesthetic the Q-Type snare throw off offers a solid, stable, smooth action.
