For the drummer that needs versatility in a snare drum, the Sensitive series can do it all. This drum works in any musical situation, live or in the studio. Yamaha have tuned the popular Maple Custom Series snare drum to produce even greater sensitivity and tonal control. The top bearing edge has been carefully cut to make it a rounder, 60-degree edge, this process has enhanced the deeper fundamental tone. Additionally, by giving the bottom rim a sharper angle of 45-degree, the bottom head and the snare react more sensitively to each other. The greater depth of the bottom head contributes to that sensitivity.
