Yamaha MTS 9214 vs. 9216 16” Snare

Posted: Thu Dec 08, 2016 2:05 pm



I have been commissioned to build a 16” snare with top and bottom snares. The Yamaha 9214 top snare seems like the way to go but it is too short for the 16” head. Does anyone know where to get a Yamaha 9216? Is there such a thing? Are there any other options besides just using a bottom snare setup under the top head?

Looks like its for a 16" drum.

There's no such thing as a Yamaha 9216. You'd be best off manufacturing a custom set up.

Why on earth would someone want a 16" snare with the Scottish style snares under the batter head?

Thanks Bill. One doesn't ask why? One only does. What's the downside?

Well, if they want the snare unit under the batter head, I'd assume they want the Scottish snare sound and that's going to need a high tension head. None of the big guys make a 16" high tension head.

Bill, you seem pretty knowledgeable on the Scottish drums. How did they do the top snare before the high tension setups were around. Kevlar etc has not been around long compared to the Scottish top snare setup. Was a bottom snare up-side-down under the top head the standard?

I would guess that they used multiple hoops to really get the mylar head to stretch. Kevlar has been around since the 70's as a drum head. I believe the first company to make them was a small company called Bear drumheads.
