    Steve Gadd. Dr. Steve Gadd. You don't need us to introduce him; if you do, where have you been for the past 50 years?! He's a living drum legend, Grammy winner, and boasts a CV that's about as long as they come. Over his illustrious career, he's worked with almost every big name under the sun - from Simon & Garfunkel, Steely Dan, Chick Corea and countless others. To this day, he remains one of the most in demand session musicians in the world.

    Steve is one of Yamaha's proudest, most loyal, and long-standing endorsees, and has collaborated with them on numerous occasions. He's brought his knowledge, and musicality to a wide range of projects, from signature snares, to overseeing the re-design and release of the new Recording Custom - a modernised take on the classic Yamaha 9000 series.

    Every now and then, Yamaha graces us lowly mortals with another re-issue of one of his iconic collaborations, and for everything 2020 has thrown at the world, this is one small positive. This time round is a re-issue of the steel shell signature snare. The snare comes in at 14x5.5" in depth, and features a suave black nickel over 1.2mm thick steel shell, complemented with Yamaha die-cast aluminium hoops in the same finish. This is nicely offset by chrome beavertail lugs. On top of that, the drum comes fitted with a coated Remo Powerstroke 3 (Steve's go-to head), along with his signature 10-strand snare wires, designed to increase articulation, and decrease sympathetic buzz. Also included is a limited edition black nickel drum key, and certificate of authenticity.

    This snare is going to provide Steve's signature sound, and will sit right at home in any player's arsenal, as a versatile, and adaptable drum. The steel shell will give it plenty of life, while the die cast hoops will add just the right amount of control to the sound, to stop it from becoming harsh. The 10 strand wires will give the drum a crisp, staccato sound, while the Powerstroke 3 will fatten things up nicely, preventing the drum from sounding thin.

    The only thing it won't do, is make you play like him, but we wouldn't be able to put a price on it, if it did.

    This is the new Yamaha 40th Anniversary Gadd (steel shell) 14x5.5 snare. It’s a black nickel plated shell with matching aluminum hoops. This snare sounds incredible and if your a true fan of his playing it’s a must have snare to own.
