Yamaha Oak Musashi Snare Drum

By Andrew Cox

from Undisclosed

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

This drum definitely has a distinct pop to it and is met with all the quality one would expect from a yamaha snare drum. I have owned the drum for almost three years now.

Pros: Awesome cut and attack, great for high volume playing. Distinct crisp one-tone sound.

Cons: Tension-rod slippage, minimal tone range.

Overall, I love the drum. The drum depth lacks in tonal range, and makes up for it in sound projection.

Very nice!

By Ken-S_d5w

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

Yamaha never lets you down with it's quality. I purchased the 13 inch Musashi snare to accent my existing kit (which has a 14 inch snare) about a month ago and am extremely happy with this snare. Crisp, deep and solid with a gorgeous finish. Believe me if I thought this was not one of Yamaha's best efforts I would be the first to say so but for the price this is a kick bottom snare drum. Even comes with a Remo frosted drum head that works well with this excellent piece of kit. You will not be diapointed.

Great snare

By Richard Russell

from Newcastle

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

This is a great snare. I bought it as an add on for a pearl export. It has a distinctive 'popping' sound when rim shouted which sounds good if you use it as a secondary snare. The groove wedge is a great extra, It is the only snare that I will use for rim clicks. This snare compliments my pearl kit very well and from experience goes well with the whole Zildjian Z custom range. I would really recommend this snare to any drummer that wants to take their playing to the next level.

An amazing snare!

By Kyle-5dSF4

from New Mexico

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

This snare is very impressive. It has a sound you'd expect from a higher priced snare, but with a price that won't scare anyone away. It's one of my favorites in my collection. This snare will cut through anything. Tune it up high for a sharp crack. Turn the snares off and you have yourself a great drum for Latin. It almost sounds like a timbale. Tune it medium to low for a great deep punch that still cuts. Of course, with different heads it performs differently. I find it's more versatile with a 1 ply head, but your tastes may differ. Even when tuned high, unlike most snares I've played that are meant for a sharp crack, the Musashi doesn't lose it's body because of the depth. The only problem with this snare is that it seems to go out of tune a bit too often. I put some nylon washers to fix the problem, and it holds tune a little better. It goes out of tune a bit more if you play alot of rimshots. Overall, this is an amazing snare for the price. You just can't go wrong. Use it as a main snare, or a side snare, and enjoy!

The best snare drum I've ever played

By Jim-8q4-f

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

I have owned a Yamaha Musashi 13"X61/2" for about a year and it is by far the best snare drum that I have played in 30 years. This drum has "crack," depth, you name it. I did in fact change the factory head and replaced it with an Aquarian Modern-Vintage coated head and it enhanced the overall sound quality of this drum. Buy it and you definitely will not regret it.

Fantastic wood snare

By Paddy

from Current Residence: The Netherlands

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

Yamaha have made an absolutely exceptional drum with their Musashi. I am normally a Pearl drummer, but when I played this in the store it knocked my socks off. It makes such an impact in whichever situation, whether it be Latin, funk or even rock.(which piccolos aren't usually played in) The snares off function is really good also. When the snares are off it sounds like a traditional shime-daiko drum, which sounds really good on solos. The groove hat function is also really good. It makes a really nice rim-click sound when played and is really good for loud rim-shots. Overall an amazing drum.

Great Snare by YAMAHA

By WC

from GA, USA

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

I own the 1365 Musashi and it cranks. This one of a kind oak wood snare does great in cutting through the mix. There are three guitar players in my band and I need a strong snare to cut through the often full mix. This one does the job. Coupled with another metal snare it is a deadly and dynamic combination. Looks great too.

perfect

By vernon

from Baltimore Maryland USA

Comments about Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum:

This snare is by far one of the best snares I have ever played on. I own 5 snares and this is my best. You can get any tone you want out of this snare depending on the drumhead and how you tune. On mine I have a Evans g1 coated for that bright sound but I have had thicker heads on it before and it's a lot warmer. The one downside about this snare is that with its small size depending on the stick you use you can't do a rimshot. But for me that's where the groove wedge comes in. I also use it for a louder rimshot. This snare is well worth the money.
