    Among Yamaha's most affordable 100% birch drum shell packs.

    This Yamaha Stage Custom birch drum shell pack is also great for the beginner or the working professional. The staggered diagonal seam allowed Yamaha to build a thin drum shell that will start round and stay round. The beautiful high-gloss lacquer finish and low-mass lugs lets the shell vibrate for superb tone and sustain. Yamaha's Air Seal System used for drum shell construction ensures each and every Yamaha drum shell is of uniform thickness and is perfectly round to achieve superior tone quality and durability. Hardware and cymbals sold separately.

          Comments about Yamaha 2013 Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass Drum:

          Having owned a '64 Ludwig kit for all these years, I decided it would be nice get another instrument, but I didn't want to go for broke. I got this kit in the smaller sizes (20" kick, 14" floor).

          I checked the shells for concentricity and the bearing edges for evenness, smoothness, and lack of voids. Everything looked superb.

          I changed out the batter head on the BD for an Aquarian SuperKick II. The snare heads were replaced with Evans coated G2 and Hazy 300. All three toms were outfitted with Evans coated G12s on top and clear G1s on the bottom.

          I gave the kit four stars (very good) instead of five as it came from the factory, but made it into a five-star kit by my evaluation with the following mods:

          1) The snare strainer is kind of cheezy, and sticks both when engaging and disengaging the wires. I replaced it with a DW magnetic throw in chrome. I also replaced the wires with a set of Puresounds, although I'm not sure the wires made that big of a difference.

          2) I've come to really like a wide-open tom sound, and the YESS mount choked out the 12" tom when mounted to the bass drum (interestingly, when the tom mount was affixed to a cymbal stand, it was the 10" that got choked). I added a pair of RIMS suspension mounts to the toms. This is, of course, a personal preference, and if you like your drums very dry with heads that facilitate that sound, the YESS mount may work fine for you. The point is, the Yamaha drums CAN sound very open with a different mount.

          Compared to my maple Ludwigs, the Yamaha Stage Custom Birch sounds different, but I like them just as well. This is a solid kit for a great price.

            Comments about Yamaha 2013 Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass Drum:

            I bought these drums a couple years ago. Went to use them one day and the bass drum was cracked almost all the way through and just about front to back. I contact yamaha customer support who then tells me that they don't make the color any more and it will be 2 months before they can replace it. Two months goes by and I contact them again. This time I am told four more months. They offered to repair it until the new one is made. I sent it in for repair and they send it back with some glue in the crack but otherwise exactly the same as it was before. I begged them to just send me a current color that will some what go with it and I would be fine with that. They refused to send one of a different color. I was a big yamaha fan yesterday; today I will never buy another yamaha anything.

            Great looks, quality craftsmanship and overall big sound. Hardware is exceptional. I use them every weekend for gigs and the band is impressed with them as well. They are easy to tune, however I would recommend better heads if you're going to work them. I went with Aquarians.

                        I bought this kit recently as a second kit just to have for those times I have two gigs in a day. Got the Honey Amber color. Very solid kit. Like most drum sets, the stock heads it comes with are pathetic. Put some Evans clear G2's on the tops and Evans clear resonant heads on the bottom, and you will have yourself a very nice sounding kit! no complaints here at all.

                        Truly AMAZING set for the price

                        Comments about Yamaha 2013 Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass Drum:

                        This is a great mid-level drum set with plenty of great features. I picked this up as my first "real" set at my local drum shop which actually closed down about a year ago. They had limited selection, but as soon as they showed me this set, I knew that it was for me. I will definately be buying from Yamaha in the future.
                        I love the tom set-up with the 10" 12" and 16". It's unique, produces a great variety of sounds, and is not to hard to find drumhead packs for. I also love the YESS mounting system and all of the hardware.
                        Awesome durability, even though it hasn't moved from my basement in a year, it hasn't chipped or anything. The stock heads are decent, but you'll probably want to purchase some new ones eventually.
                        As I said, great value. It holds its own against some great sets out there and is an amazing deal for the price.
