Yamaha RBS1455 Recording Custom 14x5.5in Snare, Solid Black
Yamaha Recording Custom 14x5.5in Snare, Solid Black
The revamped modern design retains the traditional essence of the Recording Custom. Our high-tension one-piece lugs ensure optimum sustain for the core sound, producing a crisp, articulate tone.
In addition to their punchy power, birch shells are known to reduce unwanted noise and prevent interference when drums are set up side-by-side. The unique sonic characteristics of birch wood ensure that each stroke is clearly delineated, making it widely considered to be the ideal choice for recording environments.
The heavy-duty Q-type strainer is robust whilst offering solid, stable and smooth operation, along with adjustment and snare replacement.

Straight out of the box this sounded fantastic. I play mainly jazz and it’s perfect for this. I put some Pure Sound snares on as they are my preference and a Evans J1 Head which I prefer for brushes. Spent a bit of time on the tuning and no gel required.The throw-off looks a little cheap as it has a fair bit of plastic in it but it seems to be ok at present and is more robust than I first thought. Sound is superb.
