However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Stainless Steel Snare Drum

The recording custom snare drum is constructed out of stainless steel to deliver an overly bright tone that has a powerful cut that can penetrate the high frequencies and allowing for it to cut through loud music. The steel also provides an excellently long sustain to help create a big tone and provides the snare drum with a distinctive rimshot sound that is satisfyingly sharp and is excellent for any player that use many rimshots.

Lug Nut, Centre Bead, and Strainer

Yamaha’s recording custom snare drum features a one-piece lug nut that has been precision-machined to provide a noise-free control and allow for a high tension with the snare wires to add some weight in order to enhance the snares subtle low frequencies ad offer great sensitivity and dynamics. The snare also possesses an outward centre bead to give the drum even more open sounds and excellent articulations, along with a Q type strainer to add some robustness to the drum and keep it all stable, with the ability to make any adjustments or replacements.
