The CSS-A Series features a steel shell that produces a sharp, clear tone, and hardware that is the same as the CSM-AII Series. Coil snares provide easy playability even for beginners. This basic Yamaha model is ideal for wind ensembles and a wide variety of musical genres.
Steel shells are used for their sharp attack and clear sound.
The lineup includes two shell sizes: the 5 inch CSS-1450A, and the 6 1/2 inch CSS-1465A.
Coil snares that produce a bright sound have been used in the CSS-A Series. Coil snares also sustain longer than straight snares, making it easier to play even-sounding rolls and generally providing easier playability for beginners.
The Q type strainer lets you tighten or release your snares quickly and quietly.
Yamaha Remo Ambassador heads provide a bright tone.
The CSS-A Series employs the same tube lugs as the high-end wood shell models. By holding the tension of both the top and bottom heads with unified lugs, an optimal balance of tension between the heads is achieved.
Dyna hoops constructed of 2.3 millimeter thick steel contribute to fast, well-defined attack.
The supplied ring mute can be used to dampen overtones when a more clearly defined tone is required.
