All other specs are based on the Sforzando series marching snare drum; 6-ply birch shell provides bright attack with body and ensures strength snare-side tension, Air-Seal System way of manufacturing ensures the shell starts round and stays round; an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone, extra thick (thickest you can find) suspension ring stays round even under the torque of Kevlar heads (it eliminates stress on the shell and is tall enough for use with a plastic drum head), and rims are made from die-cast, high-strength aluminum in a solid design. They stay round even with the high torque of Kevlar heads and provide even tuning, yet they are lightweight and durable.

Comments about Yamaha 14x12 MTS Series Marching Snare Drum Only:
These snares offer nice tone, and flipping on the second snare gives you a whole new sound. On the downside, they are very difficult to tune, two out of our six have pulled a head upon tuning.
