Yamaha Logo
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.

Description

Working with the legendary artist Steve Gadd, Yamaha have elevated the iconic Recording Custom Series with new design elements, producing a refined focused sound with enhanced rounded and deeper tone. All North American birch 6-ply shells with 30° bearing edges are complimented by the re-designed 'hi-tension' lug that is weighted to enhance lower frequencies. The result is an easy-to-use and easy-to-tune drum set that redefines the classic signature sound and is suitable for any style of drumming in all situations.

Sizes are 22x18, 10x7, 12x8, 16x15. Double tom holder included. Drums only; hardware/cymbals sold separately.

Refining the Legendary Recording Custom 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 and responds well to different heads. I think we did a great job. The new Recording Customs sound great, and I think you'll like them."

-Steve Gadd

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.

R1.5/30 degree bearing edge

While testing many combinations of shells Steve Gadd opted for 30° 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.
