The Yamaha Orchestra OSM-1465 14x6.5” Maple Snare Drum features a 7-ply Maple Shell that was chosen for its warmth and response. This drum is finished in a classic brown stain for visual appeal and has a shallow snare bed that allows the snares to respond at any dynamic level.
Yamaha’s K-style strainer, first introduced on the popular BSM (Berlin) snare drum, is used for its elegant design. Solid, silent and simple, the K-style strainer promotes confidence, whether in a top orchestra or an excelling high school program.
3-piece tube lugs provide tuning stability while keeping mass down, allowing the shell to freely resonate.
Lightweight aluminum die-cast hoops also keep weight down while providing accurate tuning of the heads.

The OSM comes with two sets of snare wires. The set of 10-strand straight cable snares offers a darker voice and the coiled carbon steel snares offer a brighter sound when preferred.
