The steel shell of the Jimmy Chamberlin snare drum has the ability to cut thru the music while the satin chrome finish gives it the warmth to be used in any musical situation. Steel shells have the brightest tone of metal shell snare drums, however the Jimmy Chamberlin model has a satin chrome finish that controls the shell and adds warmth to the drum.
The small Maple Custom-type lugs are durable to withstand high-tension and allow a wide tuning range, while the minimum contact area doesnt restrict the shells resonance.
This drum also features a H-type strainer which has the normal tension adjustment, and the G type butt side also has tension adjustment making it easy to keep the snares centered on the snare side head.
Aluminum die cast hoops are rigid to give you precise tuning. They are much lighter in weight than a zinc die cast hoop so that the drum can open up and resonate to its full potential.
This amazing snare has been long-discontinued by Yamaha and we may be the only store in the UK that has a NEW drum in stock so it goes without saying that when it's gone, it's gone!
