MS-9414 Series

Warm wood-shell tone with extraordinary clarity and presence

Developed through long-term evaluation and field testing in the U.S.A., the world’s marching hub, this flagship snare drum series achieves enhanced tone and playability with reduced weight.


Improved Tone

While retaining the maple shell material that was so popular in the 9300 series, these models feature extra vent holes and additional wood material that contribute to notably improved tone.

Reduced Weight

Metal parts have been redesigned to reduce weight without compromising tone or durability, effectively reducing stress on players throughout the most active performances.

Improved Operability

A redesigned strainer, playing head hoop, and other features contribute to improved operation and functionality.
