Here we have a Yamaha Live Oak Custom, this is a brand new kit fresh in the boxes but offered at a really special price! The solid, all-oak construction of the Yamaha Live Custom delivers incredible presence, power and super warm tone. Add Yamaha's flawless build quality, a stunning appearance from the dark silver hardware and black shell interiors. This model also features an un-drilled bass drum, for unparalleled resonance and the heavy-weight Dyna Hoops
Featuring an 8-ply Oak bass drum shell and 6-ply tom shells the Live Custom offers incredible durability and projection due to the strong nature of the wood. This is due to the proprietary shell forming technique. This produces a perfectly round shape, forming the base for tonal excellence. With an overall balanced tone the Oak shells produce a deep and expressive sound.
Yamaha's complete specifications are passed on to succeeding model lines, generation after generation. The already well-known "Absolute Lug", for instance, can be firmly secured with a single bolt. It's a complete secure lug that doesn't interfere with vibrations of the shell. The lug nut holding plate, which is located within the lug case, and the nylon ring at the lower part of the lug nut control the slackening of the tuning bolt, providing the utmost in tuning stability.
Y.E.S.S Tom Mounts
The Y.E.S.S tom mounts are Yamaha's innovative enhanced sustain subsystem which minimises interference between the tom mounts and the drum shell's natural response or rumble. Employed to deliver advanced sustain and untainted tonal clarity the Y.E.S.S system features a number of supported points (rubber spacers) dependant on the size of the drum which are evenly spaced to modulate the rumbling caused by the weight of the drum. This results in clear response and well-balanced rumble from one drum to the next.
