The Yamaha Concert CSS-1450A 14x5" Steel Snare Drum features a crisp, clear snare drum sound for any performance environment. This drum features a chrome-plated steel shell, three piece tube lugs and Q type snare strainer. Coil snares provide easy playability even for beginners. This basic Yamaha model is ideal for wind ensembles and a wide variety of musical genres.
Steel shells are used for their sharp attack and clear sound.
Coil snares that produce a bright sound have been used in the CSS-A Series. Coil snares also sustain longer than straight snares, making it easier to play even-sounding rolls and generally providing easier playability for beginners.
Q Type Strainer
The Q type strainer lets you tighten or release your snares quickly and quietly.
The CSS-A Series employs the same tube lugs as the high-end wood shell models. By holding the tension of both the top and bottom heads with unified lugs, an optimal balance of tension between the heads is achieved.
Dyna hoops constructed of 2.3 millimeter thick steel contribute to fast, well-defined attack.
The supplied ring mute can be used to dampen overtones when a more clearly defined tone is required.
