This beautiful Yamaha 8x14" recording custom snare is completely original, and sounds like a dream. The SD-098 drum has been a major contributor to the iconic sound of countless power ballads and hair band anthems, and this one, dating to 1988, will have you time-warped before you know it. At eight-inches in shell depth, nonetheless this is a drum that goes to eleven.

Condition on this drum is excellent, with a few fingerprints and some light pitting on the hoops. Check out the sound file at medium-high and medium-low tunings!

From the 1986 Yamaha catalog:

“Built from high-quality woods carefully selected and aged for maximum tonal response, Yamaha wood shell snare drums are chosen by leading pro­fessional drummers for their warm resonance and a thick, fat sound charac­terized by a crisply-defined attack.

The SD-098's exceptionally deep 8" shell, "power" hoop and birch ply construdion produce more than enough cutting power and projection to carry through any amplified music, no matter how loud. …it features 10 very precise lugs for perfect tuning and our most up to date strainer mechanism. Available in all Recording Custom lacquer finishes. ”
