Drawing inspiration from the vintage sound of thinner drums with reinforcement rings of yesteryear, and even the highly-coveted 13”x6.5” Yamaha MSD1365SJ Steve Jordan signature maple snare drum, the 14”x6” Yamaha VSD1460 Vintage Series Maple Snare Drum delivers on precisely the goal of which Yamaha set out: warm, fat, woody, and classic.  

To accomplish this goal, Yamaha R&D combined a four-ply maple shell with six-ply maple reinforcement-rings, 60-degree bearing edges, a 2.7 mm snare bed and an eight-lug design for more shell vibration and a woody tone. Prior to the breakthrough development of the 14”x6” Yamaha VSD1460 Vintage Series Maple snare drum, most snare drums of this type were only available from small boutique companies with high price-tags, and Yamaha sought to make this sound more widely affordable and available.

This 14”x6” Yamaha VSD1460 Vintage Series Maple Snare Drum was also made in Japan by the skilled craftsmen and craftswomen of the Sakae Rhythm Company which manufactured all high-end Yamaha drums for 30 years prior to 2013 when Yamaha moved their entire production capabilities to China. As most experienced drummers will tell you, this has a profound impact on the drums’ residual value.
