Outfitted with rock-solid 880 series hardware, Yamaha's 6-piece Stage Custom Birch drum kits received a very cool upgrade. The thing that impressed the drummers here at Music Experience, when we got to check out this kit, was the extended punch and rumble the Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System offers, rewarding heavier strokes with added volume instead of flabbing out. Coupled with the natural open and crisp sound birch shells have to offer, the whole kit just sounds bigger and bolder than you'd expect. Other quality hardware we're sure you'll love include resin-buffered die-cast claw hooks, ball mounts, and clamps, which give your Stage Custom Birch drum kit extraordinary stability while decreasing rattle.
With the introduction of the Stage Custom in 1995, Yamaha, once again, set the standard for value and sound. The new Stage Custom inherits 100% birch wood with upgraded metal parts.
The shell is a key factor in the drum's ability to "rumble" or resonate. Accordingly, the Stage Custom - a classic in the realm of high-class drum kits - employs 100% birch. Moreover, with its six-ply structure, the Stage Custom accurately conveys the vibrations produced at the impact surface, achieving performance that transcends anything in its class.
The secret of our Y.E.S.S. system is twofold: first, it ensures minimum contact between the hardware and shell, and second, it connects that hardware to the nodal point* of the drum - the point at which it will not interfere with shell vibration. Nylon bushings on rod clamps afford maximum stability. Y.E.S.S. also allows toms to be placed close together without interfering with quick head changes, and on floor toms, Y.E.S.S. offers wide open sustain while keeping toms stable under the heaviest strokes. * Nodal point mounting is patented by the Noble & Cooley Drum.
A tribute to Yamaha design technology, our original ball mount and clamp have not changed much over the years. A large, ultra-hard resin ball sits in an attractive chromed housing, held in place with a titanium ergonomic wing bolt. It is the ultimate drummer-friendly mount offering non-slip positioning and tuning of the bottom head by simply rotating the drum.
Die-cast claw hooks with rubber insertion plates help to reduce noise.
Bass drum legs have stoppers to make setting easier.
*Cymbals not included*
