Condition: 5/10. If you’re thinking there’s something not quite right about this Yamaha SD6465 14×6.5in Copper Snare Drum you’d be correct. The previous owner has resprayed the bright copper shell with a matt copper finish which has ran in places. Not the original look but it’s definitely unique and VIBE-tastic! Other things to note are the original detachable strainer and butt have both been replaced by alternative Yamaha models. The snare side hoop has been replaced with a Pearl SuperHoop. See pics.
That being said, it still sounds incredible! Given that Copper is not currently in Yamaha’s snare arsenal this Made in Japan SD6465 should be snapped up in no time!
1.5mm Copper Shell
Copper snare drums cut through loud music but have a warmer tone than other metal shells. Copper shells have enhanced low-end frequencies that give them a darker tone that works great in all musical situations.
The quick release low contact Nouveau lugs allow the shell to vibrate for a more resonant drum and wide dynamic range. The lugs allow much quicker head changes because the tension rods don’t have to be removed to take the hoop off.
