Yamaha Maple Custom 13×5 Snare

Your lucky day boys! This 13×5 Maple Custom snare was made by my very own hands in the Sakae Rhythm factory near Osaka, Japan during one of our many Eric Clapton Tours with Steve Gadd whose RC9000 kit was a major seller for Yamaha from the 80s to this day.
Sakae make Yamaha drums for the Japanese home market. The company vice president Eizo kindly put me through my paces and upon completion inscribed my name on to the nameplate More impressive was finding Eizo’s mother, the company president, working on the production line… That is what I call leadership! Oh I nearly forgot… the snare!! 6 lugs with triple flanged hoops and a clear Maple finish… Lovingly made!!
