Precise articulation and powerful projection.
The MS9213 SFZ White Marching Snare Drum is paired with the RM-TSFZ Aluminum lift-front carrier for a complete state-of-the-art, lightweight yet powerfully effective marching snare package.
MS9213W Marching Snare
For use with high-tension Kevlar heads, the SFZ marching snare drum is designed for precise articulation, powerful projection, and durable performance. Renowned for its distinctive sound, wide dynamic range, and explosive rim shot, the MS9213 marching snare drum incorporates structural innovations that permit the use of a high-tension Kevlar® drumhead. Years in the making, the SFZ was developed and perfected in field tests under the rigors of actual use with The Cadets, The Cavaliers and The Madison Scouts drum and bugle corps. The design offers powerful projection, precise articulation and durable performance. The MS9213W has a 13" diameter snare batter head, with an 11" deep shell.
The RM-TSFZ Tube Carrier
The RM-TSFZ Tube Carrier features a new ergonomic lightweight design. This patented design is the optimal carrier for comfort and adjustability. The new tube carriers are adjustable to fit the smallest student to the largest. Features include an aluminum belly plate that's lighter and stronger than traditional materials. Aluminum tubes allow infinite torso height adjustment and tow-in adjustment (angle front to back of tubes near the shoulders). Shoulder Rotation adjustments can be made to the camber (left and right) and caster (back to front). An adjustable back bar facilitates easy shoulder adjustment with back bar support.
For urgent drumhead changes, the strainer system allows for quick and easy removal of the snare assembly. With the use of FiberTech™ snares, a crisp and articulate sound is obtained while ten independently adjustable strands allow for precise tuning control.
The butt-side strainer uses aluminum die-cast construction for strength without excess weight, and has vertical adjustment capability for a precise setting of snare height. This also houses the independent adjustment for each FiberTech™ snaregut.
The release-side strainer uses parts made of die-cast aluminum and durable nylon for a smooth, noise-free operation. An oversized vertical adjustment knob allows adjustment to snare height even when snares are engaged. For a precise setting of the snare tension, the horizontal adjustment knob is within easy reach of the player.
With the thickest wall in the industry, the SFZ suspension ring allows high-tension tuning without warping. It uses a solid, die-cast design and a special aluminum alloy to provide exceptional strength with minimum weight. It is also tall enough to accommodate the stretch of a plastic head.
An extra long lug nut provides sufficient threading to effectively grip the tension rod. Its beveled edge guides the rod to eliminate cross threading, a feature especially helpful during last-minute head changes.
Shell and Lugs
The 6-ply birch shell built using Yamaha’s patented Air-Seal System® promotes a sharp attack with a full-bodied sound. Three air holes vent the shell to promote immediate snare response and to enhance projection. Tubular lugs are made of high-quality, lightweight aluminum, and feature a thick wall to resist dents and bending from heavy use. Finished in white.
Stabilizer Power Posts™
These posts support the tube lugs by adding considerable resistance against damage from accidental bumps and stick hits. Since they are secured to the shell, the posts help focus the drum’s tone and therefore, make the sound more articulate. To facilitate quick bottom head changes, the posts maintain the exact alignment necessary for the bottom tension rods.
