Three new Yamaha snare drums bearing the sound and signature of Steve Gadd made their debut at Winter NAMM 2005 as part of a complete overhaul of the signature series snare drum line.

Targeted to the professional musician, the Steel SD-255SG (MSRP $1,259), Birch BSD-14ASG (MSRP $999) and Maple MSD-14ASG (MSRP $1,039) are scheduled for March 2005 delivery. Each features a 35-degree bearing edge for the hallmark "fat" sound, while a 3.5 mm snare bed results in decreased sympathetic vibration from the snares and the rest of the kit. All models feature black vintage hoops, with the bottom hoop cut in a decagonal shape in order to accommodate any snare stand.

"All of my signature snare drums are unique in design," says Gadd. "This particular series has a simple, straightforward design and tunes up quickly. They all respond well to both loose and tight settings, and that's everything I wantin a snare drum. They sound great."

As one of the most sought-after studio, recording and live drummers in the world, Gadd is regarded as one of the most influential drummers in contemporary music, having worked with a roster that includes Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, Steely Dan and Chick Corea. He enjoys a nearly 30-year relationship with Yamaha, and has had input on a number of products and signature items. Gadd balances frequent recording dates with a hectic touring schedule.
