Why don't we ask Yamaha. The Recording Custom was a staple kit in the drum industry when it came out. Its warmth was favorable in recording situations and was the choice of drums from players like Steve Gadd and Dave Weckl. The 1.2mm aluminum Recording Custom snare drum features 3mm Die-Cast Hoops which adds crack and focus to the fat and open sounds of the snares sound. The aluminum snare on snare on steroids.

Steve Gadd Signature 10-Strand Snare Wire:
A 14-Strand snare wire with the middle four removed, this enriches the cutoff of the sound allowing the player to produce a crisper staccato tone.

Only the 14"x5.5" Model comes bundled with the 20" Strand Snare Wire (equipped) and the Steve Gadd Signature 10-Strand snare wire while the 14"x6.5" comes stock with the 20-Strand snare wire equipped.

Center Bead:
The center bead on this snare drums is fixed on the outside of the shell providing more openness then other conventional drums. Giving off a crisp and articulated performance.

Q Type Strainer:
The Q-type strainer is not only heavy duty but smooth as needed.
