Yamaha SFZ Series Marching Snare Drum - 14x12 - Product Information

Renowned for its distinctive sound, wide dynamic range, and explosive rim shot, the Yamaha SFZ (Sforzando) marching snare drum incorporates structural innovations that permit the use of a high-tension Kevlar drumhead. Years in the making, the Yamaha SFZ was developed and perfected in field tests under the rigors of actual use with The Cadets, The Cavaliers and The Madison Scouts drum and bugle corps. The design offers powerful projection, precise articulation and durable performance.

For urgent drumhead changes, the strainer system allows for quick and easy removal of the snare assembly. With the use of FiberTech snares, a crisp and articulate sound is obtained while ten independently adjustable strands allow for precise tuning control.

The butt-side strainer uses aluminum die-cast construction for strength without excess weight, and has vertical adjustment capability for a precise setting of snare height. This also houses the independent adjustment for each FiberTech snaregut.

The release-side strainer uses parts made of die-cast aluminum and durable nylon for a smooth, noise-free operation. An oversized vertical adjustment knob allows adjustment to snare height even when snares are engaged. For a precise setting of the snare tension, the horizontal adjustment knob is within easy reach of the player.

With the thickest wall in the industry, the SFZ suspension ring allows high-tension tuning without warping. It uses a solid, die-cast design and a special aluminum alloy to provide exceptional strength with minimum weight. It is also tall enough to accommodate the stretch of a plastic head.

An extra long lug nut provides sufficient threading to effectively grip the tension rod. Its beveled edge guides the rod to eliminate cross threading, a feature especially helpful during last-minute head changes.

In contrast to the dynamic, full-bodied sound of the 14″ model, the 13″ model is lighter and can achieve a higher fundamental pitch with a controlled sound for precision on the field or while indoors.

Great snare

Comments:

I play with this snare on my high school drumline. It is an amazing drum. So articulate and durable. i must say though the drum is a little on the heavy side but the great sound makes up for it. My favorite part is the rim shots. They stick out both in the gym and on the football field. Overall a great drum.

Amazing

Comments:

Every drum has its unique sound. I like Yamaha, Pearl, and Dynasty. But by far Yamaha has always been my drum of choice, durable, easy to take apart, quality, tonal range, and of course that amazing SFZ rimshot. Check out all the high schools, universitys, and drum corps that use these, they sound great.

Best I've used

Comments:

This is the drum we use in our drumline and i love everything about it, even tuning it is fun because i can get such a great sound out of it. It's high tension allows for distinct, crisp rolls and excellent rimshots. But it does seem to be a little quieter than our older drums, but than again I guess I'm not an expert but I would recommend this drum. It's definitely worth the money.
