Used Yamaha Recording Custom 4pc Rock Drum Set Classic Walnut

Shane

Shane Says

“Yamaha has surpassed themselves with the new Recording Custom line. These have the attack and musicality of the old ones, but the warmth AND bite we've become accustomed to with modern drums.“

Product Description

This setup consists of:

  • 22x18 Bass Drum
  • 12x10 Rack Tom
  • 14x12 Hanging Floor Tom
  • 16x14 Hanging Floor Tom
  • Single Tom Mount
  • 800 Series Double Tom Stand
  • This was purchased from DCP about 3 months ago, gigged, kept in cases, and then set up in a studio. This is in incredible shape! This is a great chance to save over $1000 on a top-sehlf Yamaha kit!

REFINING THE LEGENDARY RC WITH STEVE GADD
For the past 3 years, I've been meeting with the Research and Development guys at Yamaha with the aim of bringing the Recording Custom Series up to date. I told Yamaha what I thought throughout the process, and the result is that everything is a step up. They still feel like the Recording Custom; when you take them out of the box they don't feel new, they feel comfortable, and I think that's good. The bass drum has a nice fat sound. The drum responds to different heads, and my goal was to have a simple snare drum design that could respond to a wide range of tuning. I think we did a great job. The new Recording Customs sound great, and I think you'll like them.

New Weighted High Tension Lugs
The revamped modern design retains the traditional essence of the Recording Custom. In order to maximum the attenuating properties of the birch wood, we've increased the weight of the lug, further enhancing the artist's expressive power and reducing undesirable noise from the shell without using a mute. This ensures optimum sustain for the core sound, producing a crisp, articulate tone.

All Birch Shell
In addition to their punchy power, birch shells are known to reduce unwanted noise and prevent interference when drums are set up side-by-side. The unique sonic characteristics of birch wood ensure that each stroke is clearly delineated, making it widely considered to be the ideal choice for recording environments.

Lifted Style Bass Drum
Steve prefers a 20 inch lifted bass drum, so we adopted this specification. We reduced interference from the floor to maximize the resonance of the shell, and increased the length of the pedal beater rod, centering it precisely to ensure absolute accuracy during performances. This lifted bass drum produces a more punchy sound and accentuates the sound produced in the core of the shell.

R1.5/30 degree bearing edge
While testing many combinations of shells Steve Gadd opted for 30 degree bearing edges, to deliver a sharp response. The shells have a wide tuning range, respond well to different head choices and are easy to tune.
