YAMAHA RECORDING CUSTOM DRUM KIT IN CLASSIC WALNUT EX DISPLAY
Please note this is an EX DISPLAY model.
The Yamaha Recording Custom has set the benchmark for excellence for over 30 years. Possibly the most recorded drum in history, it has enjoyed an unparalleled history of success and innovation. The Recording Custom, with its birch shells and pristine interior and exterior finish, delivers a sound the seems "pre-EQ-ed", perfect for studio or multi-miking in any situation. Unmiked, it will hold its own with power and tone to spare. The Yamaha Recording Custom Kit features 100 Birch 6ply shells, Remo heads, and a Y.E.S.S system tom mount.
Birch shells produce a lower fundamental tone than maple. Their crisp sound quality with short attack decay makes them optimal for recording situations. Our Air Seal System shells feature select birch wood cut in plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. This process ensures that every drum shell is in round and of uniform thickness while providing superior tone quality and durability.
Precision-machined lug nuts provide noise-free control, due to their springless casing design. Manufactured as genuine one-piece units, our high-tension lugs have established one of the principal trends in modern design.
Mounted Toms and Floor Toms Equipped with YESS Mounts
Long found on our high-end drum kits our original YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) allows attachment of the drum to the tom holder without the need of a hole in the drum shell for the rod to pass through. The YESS clamp is attached to the shell at the nodal point with two bolts so as to allow the shell to vibrate freely without degrading the shell's dynamic range and sustain. The nodal point is the location on a shell with the least amount of vibration allowing for the mount to have minimal affect to the resonance of the shell.
