  • Perfect for the studio or any gig at all!

  • Here’s a famous Yamaha - PINK JUMP SUIT VINNIE COLAIUTA! The SD 416!  Sexy!

  • That’s right! The famous Yamaha ad from about 30 years ago.  The one with the White Recording Custom and this snare - and this one even has the exact same Yamaha Throwoff (a bit like the vintage Slingerland one.) The big one that’s smooth!

  • And of course, it’s the famous Made In Japan Pink Badge SEAMLESS BRASS shell - this is one of the greatest snare drums Yamaha ever produced. Yamaha stopped producing Seamless snares I believe in the late 90s or early 2000s and the world has been a bit sadder since.

  • Here are the luscious specs:

  • Famous late 80s/early 90s Seamless Brass Snare in the deep 6.5” X 14” size.

  • Yamaha Diecast Hoops supply plenty of attack and cut extremely well. Amazing for rim shots.

  • Super smooth original Yamaha slap shot-style Throwoff works perfectly with all wires in tact.  That’s almost impossible to find. It has the extended wires and is extremely sensitive even at a whisper. Adjustment knob works perfectly for maximum sensitivity and control.  

  • 10 Recording Custom Yamaha lugs.  

  • Real Deal Pink Badge (the best years!) with the Made In Japan SD 416 engraved. (part of badge missing but guess what, it sounds exactly the same!)

  • Brand new vans head on top, Original Yamaha head on bottom (could be switched out but I’m including it because it is the original and that’s pretty amazing.) Typical wear/tarnish on the shell.  Nothing at all that affects the tone.  

  • This snare absolutely destroys the newer and more expensive Made in China Yamaha NON seamless brass snare drums.  

  • This is the tone that put Yamaha on the map - the tone that caught Vinnie’s ear!

  • And with good reason! You’ll be hard pressed to find a drum that sounds this amazing - (especially for the price) outside of a $1500 vintage COB LUDWIG.  

  • A hell of a lot of fun to play this iconic sonic candy!
