Here we have a very Limited Edition set from Yamaha. This kit is a re-issue of the original Natural finished R.C. drums which at the time also had natural interiors. This kit was one of 70 made in Japan during 2010. Yamaha made some tweaks such as the size choices and inclusion of Y.E.S.S. Mounts.
For anyone who has never heard a Recording Custom, the kit combines an exquisite, powerful, distinctive crisp sound quality with a range of groundbreaking innovations.
Recording custom is one of the most consistently and meticulously built drum kits in the world, you are guaranteed a great drum sound every time.
The music business is known for fast moving trends and preferences but the iconic Recording Custom, with its Japanese Hokkaido birch shells, constructed using Yamaha's innovative Air Seal System and Diagonal Seams, delivered a sound solution for the studio that has passed the test of time.
The Birch shells produce a low fundamental tone with crisp sound quality and short attack decay making them optimal for recording situations. Drummers such as Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl & Vinnie Colaiuta are just a select few of the names who have recorded ground breaking records with iconic drum sounds produced from this very same kit.
Yamaha's 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.
The Recording Custom is instantly recognised due to its trademark high-tension lugs, 60-degree bearing edges and Y.E.S.S. mounts. Precision-machined lug nuts provide noise-free control, due to their springless casing design.
Manufactured as genuine one-piece units, Yamaha's high-tension lugs established one of the principal trends in modern design during the 1980's, an era that the Recording Custom dominated.
These drum kits are still in high demand and are becoming increasingly rare (many owners will never sell them), previously owned by a collector - this drum set is in immaculate condition, it has all its original factory heads on the bass drum and new Remo Emperor Coated heads on the toms, all original parts are present.
