    Default Yamaha Live Oak Custom floor tom to snare drum conversion

    One of my students absolutely loved how I turned my 14" PDP FT into a SD and asked if I would do so on his Yamaha Live Custom Oak drum. So of course I agreed and video time!



    Enjoy and feel free to comment.

    The closest I've ever come to building a drum was changing a head.

    Thank you. I love building. Hoping to finish two more snares soon.

    Cool video. And a very nice job on the conversion. It just pains me to see a high-end drum like that having additional holes drilled into it. I would think if you wanted that type a snare, he could’ve found a less expensive floor tom to use.

    He has the entire matching Yamaha kit.
    We ended up tuning this down pretty low so it functions as a floor tom and snare drum.
    It's super sick!
    It did also pain me and scare me to drill into and and cut the snare bed... but the end result was worth it.

    Great job! I miss my Tama FT to snare project. I should have kept that one!
