Yamaha applied their new metal shell manufacturing process to an all-new Steel shell to create a drum with a bright tone that really cuts thru. The SD-2340s small diameter shell has a high pitch that pops but the 4" depth still has some body so the drum doesnt sound thin. This is a versatile drum that works well as a main snare or as an auxiliary drum.
One-Piece Lugs One-piece lugs allow high tension and added strength. The locking lug inserts help keep the drum in tune.
New "B" Type detachable Snare Strainer The new strainer design allows you to change the snare side head without disconnecting the snare strings. The built in tension indicator makes it easier to get your drum set up the way you like when changing snare wires.
Triple flanged 1.6mm hoops Triple flanged steel hoops give you a wide tuning range and allow the drum to open up even under higher tension.
