The Yamaha Recording Custom snare is refined to the finest details to ensure the most crisp and articulate sound imaginable. There are a few reasons why this drum sounds exceptional. High-tension, one-piece lugs ensure optimum sustain, with crisp and articulate tone. 6mm 6-ply shells with 30 degree bearing edges synergise to create maximum shell tone, focus and vintage punchiness, while removing unpleasant overtones, and keeping the good ones. Completely smooth and fluid to operate. The Q-Type strainer is incredibly robust and stable, keeping its position firmly.

    Great service as always. Been buying almost all my gear (new and used) at Drummers Only since 2010. Numerous … More reasons but mainly the service and advice. I've dealt with most of the staff over the years, but mainly the now manager Chris who is a top lad and great asset to the store/company. Whether buying a new kit or a pair of sticks, he always takes time to give advice and support. This time it was a snare head; great advice on both selection and the black art of fitting & tuning. It's sounding sweet, thanks as always for the great service and support. THANKS CHRIS AND ALL AT DRUMMERS ONLY

    I'd been after an 18" floor tom for a while.Bought a second hand PDP. To be honest it doesn't … More even look second hand. Really happy with it especially as it was practically half the price! I'm in the recording studio tomorrow so it'll be being put to good use. Already rehearsed with it and it sounds pukka! Deep and booming. Can't recommend Drummers Only enough. Really happy and as always your goods are shipped prompt with lots of protection.

    Ordered a Yamaha electronic kit for my son for Christmas. Great service in store, delivered promptly. … More However the snare drum was a bit loose on the frame and the guys not only ordered a new part but delivered it to my home personally. Great guys, great service and great products.

    Great drum shop has a huge selection and the customer service is decent. The guys in the shop are cool … More although they seem to be a carbon copy of each other. A little diversity in terms of personality wouldn't go a miss.
