Here we have one of the new Yamaha Live Custom Oak Snare Drums, like the kits these snare drums are exceptional! These drums normally sell for around £500. We have been lucky to get a couple of ex-show models from Yamaha offered at a special reduced price. The drums are boxed like new condition and have been re-headed. A great chance to get a fantastic price!
Oak /Phenolic Sheet Hybrid Shell
The Live Custom Hybrid Oak shell concept is borrowed from the PHX and Absolute Hybrid Maple kits. For the new Live Oak Yamaha have opted for a dense phenolic sheet sandwiched between two sheets of Oak ply. Always a pioneer in the field of of Oak drums, Yamaha has enhanced the dynamic range of the new Live Custom kits by accentuating their attack and projection.
The traditional Japanese finishing technique known as "UZUKURI" has been modified for use on the Hybrid Oak drum shells. In this procedure, the soft areas in the wood grain are sanded and then the whole shell is coated with a thin layer of black paint. The entire surface of the shell is then sanded again before the final coating is applied, in a process that emphasizes the natural beauty of the Oak grain. This gives the Live Custom Hybrid Oak a unique look and appearance all of it's own!
