One of a trio of snares that Steve uses to achieve that signature "Gadd" sound.
The Yamaha Steve Gadd Signature Snare Drum realizes the deep, tight, expressive sound that Steve has lent to countless recordings and performances.
1.2mm Nickel-plated steel shell
The steel shell is bright, but the nickel plating adds a touch of warmth to make this a versatile drum for almost any musical situation.
Black, 10-lug vintage wood hoops
The wood hoops warm the drum up even more and give you a crisp cross stick for ballads and Latin grooves. The snare side hoop is cut to a decagonal (10 sided) shape to fit a standard snare stand.
35 degree bearing edges
This fattens up the sound of the drum for a strong back beat.
3.5mm snare bed
The extra deep snare bed lets you put less tension on the snares for a wet sound while reducing the sympathetic vibration from the kick and toms.
