Re: What year is this Yamaha snare ?

Thanks, for answering my question. I've had it about 10 years. I got it when, I worked at a music store. It's a great sounding drum, and easy to play.

What year is this Yamaha snare ?

Does anyone know what year this drum was made ? It's a seamless shell, heavy, and sounds great.
