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