So I just picked up my newest toy… a 14″x4″ Yamaha Absolute Maple Snare in Natural finish. Words cannot describe the snare per se. You have to see it to know how classy it looks in real life under normal lighting. The finish has a pinkish reflection that makes it look amazingly amazing. I’m still thinking whether I should change the die-cast hoops to wooden hoops, and throw on a set of DW Puresound Snarewires on it. Comments on it drummers? I do know that I’ll be changing the heads to G1 clears over Evans Snareside hazy300 resos, or maybe I’ll make a trip down to Nigel’s and give Aquarians a shot.

Less talk, more photos, here’re the photos of the snare!
