After repeated evaluations of Yamaha's design by Steve Gadd, they created a groundbreaking snare drum. To date, Yamaha’s snare drums have traditionally had the metal centre bead on the interior of the drum. However, for the new RC, Yamaha have taken the step of fixing the centre bead to the outside of the drum to produces a more open sound.
The heavy-duty Q-type strainer is robust whilst offering solid, stable and smooth operation, along with adjustment and snare replacement.
