Product# J07120
OVERVIEW

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 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.

Features a beautiful high-gloss lacquer finish. Hardware and cymbals sold separately.

    Comments about Yamaha N/A:

    I've had one of these for about a year and a half now. I love the kit. The finish is gorgeous, and the bearing edges were nice out of the box. The snare drum is the only part of the kit that I don't use, just could never get it to sound "right" (although it would probably be passable for most). I replaced all the head with Evans heads which really brought out the drums' potential. I found the YESS mounting system to choke the drums and got a couple of Gauger RIMS mounts. The drums are bright and clear, but with tons of low end. I've had a few kits in my day, some high-end, expensive. This kit sound as good as any I've ever played, better than most. Hard to go wrong with this one.

    Complete Shell Pack

        Comments about Yamaha N/A:

        I have the full Yamaha Stage Custom set, which includes 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, snare, and 20" kick.

        The set sounds good, even with stock heads.
        When you receive your kit, one of the 1st things you'll notice is that the heads are on way too tight. The only heads I didn't adjust was on the snare.

        My only issue has been with tuning the 12" tom.

        With the exception of the 12" tom, all the other toms were easy to tune. The shells resonate well
        when the batter and resonant heads are tuned the same.

        After 3 hours verse 20 min., I have been able to get the 12" tom close to resonating the shell with a nice tone.

        Roughly, tune the tom. More than likely its going to sound like a thud when you strike the head.
        Next, adjust one lug up and down while very lightly tapping the head near that lug. You will
        hit a noticeable sweet spot where the tom produces overtones (rings longer). Tune the remaining lugs in the same manner. That's the easy part. Most of my time was spent on the last stage. Tune the batter and resonate head the same trying to keep the overtones intact. You will find 1/8 of a turn or less is required to get the heads tuned the same. You will also find 1 lug off will destroy the overtones. You will also find a very small tuning range window if you want the tom's shell to resonate like the others in this set.

        Beware of the free gift (cymbals) offer that comes with the set. If you buy the set expecting to receive the cymbals with your order, nix that.
        I've been waiting a month and no cymbals. The delivery date moves back once or twice a week. Currently, the cymbals are backorder an additional month. Bottom line, if your counting on the cymbals, like me, call and confirm the cymbal stock. I made the mistake of logically assuming that they would have set aside a cymbal set with the drum set so they could complete the order. I have also called to see if I could purchase a more expensive set in its place, they said no because is was part of a package deal. I tried this three times hoping the previous person was incorrect.

        Comments about Yamaha N/A:

        I got the 20" Bass shell kit. Smaller drums, lighter, easier to load/unload and setup. Has nice full punchy sound just like my larger kits. High end hardware and fantastic looking finish. I have nothing negative to say about this kit.

          Comments about Yamaha N/A:

          I've had these drums for about a decade, the black. I chose black because years ago my school had em and looked sick on stage, and really look amazing black with chrome under the stage lights etc. I bought Yamaha because of reputation and sounded amazing at our high school at the concerts, and indeed don't dissapoint. Add a set of zildjian zbt or a, a custom if can, and rock the house! Also you can add more toms separately. Great sound, great reputation, used my the pros: steve gadd, pearl jam, weckl, igoe etc etc.
