    All maple, all Yamaha, at a pleasing price.

    The first Yamaha maple drums with 60-degree bearing edges provide clear fundamental tones, delivering warm resonant sustain and clear low-frequency impact. The wood snare drum has full body, cutting high end, and is very articulate at all dynamic levels. Drum shell pack only. Cymbals and hardware sold separately.

    Air Seal System
    All Yamaha wood drums have one thing in common--Yamaha's craftsmen create every drum shell using their exclusive staggered diagonal seam, Air Seal System just as they have since 1967. Each two or three-ply master ply is cut to length to very precise tolerance with a diagonal cut on each end. The diagonal seam in the drum shell will not separate, eliminating the need to fill gaps in the bearing edge with filler putty. These plies have glue applied and are then put into the mold by hand, one master play at a time. The craftsman then inserts an air bag into the mold and inflates it, clamping the shell with even pressure 360 degrees around. This process creates a shell that is strong, starts round, and stays round for many years.

    100% Maple Shell
    Tour Custom drum shells are 100% maple. The bass drums are 7-ply 7mm and have a warm, deep tone; the toms are 6-ply 6mm, with lots of warmth and resonance and have a wide tuning range. The matching wood snare drum has body, yet plenty of high end and is very articulate at all dynamic levels.

    60 Degree Bearing Edges
    All Tour Custom drums have 60-degree R2 bearing edges. This is something new for Yamaha on a maple shell drum set. This bearing edge has a rounder profile so that there is more shell to head contact. This gives the drums clarity in the low-end fundamental and added warmth.

    Bass Drum Spurs
    Sturdy, yet simple in design; the bass drum spurs hold the bass drum firmly in place even under heavy playing. They are height adjustable using a drum key, and there are steel spikes that can be exposed when extra hold is needed. They fold up compact for transport and are marked with angle indicators so that you can set them up the same every time.

    YESS Tom and Floor Tom Brackets
    All Tour Custom toms and floor toms use the YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System). The toms have a mount attached to the shell at the nodal point by two bolts. This system allows the drum shell to vibrate freely for maximum sustain without restricting with where the placement of the drums. The floor tom brackets are small, minimal contact mounts that are located at the nodal point. They hold the legs securely in place without restricting the vibration of the shell.

    Ball Clamp and Triple Tom Holder
    Tour Custom drum sets includes the TH-945 triple tom holder with Yamaha's tom ball clamp that gives you 360-degree rotation. The ball, made of a super-hard resin, is held in place by a single bolt making angle adjustments on the toms quick and easy. The toms lock firmly in place at virtually any angle you want. This versatile tom holder lets you mount any combination of up to three toms and/or cymbals by using either the standard or the long version of Yamaha's tom ball clamp and CH model cymbal booms.

    Beautiful Lacquer Finishes
    Tour Custom drums are all finished in high-gloss lacquer.

    Cymbals and hardware not included.

        Comments about Yamaha Tour Custom 5 Piece Fusion Floor Shell Pack:

        This particular kit has numerous voids in the bearing edges; some filled flush to the surface and some not. No gaskets were used between the lug casings and the shells. Therefore, the floor tom rattled with medium play. I just bought a 2012 Mapex Saturn kit, new, for about 12% more than the Yamahas and it smokes the Yammies in every category.

        Yamaha Maple Kit Rocks

        By Cymbaholic

        from Nashville

        Comments about Yamaha Tour Custom 5 Piece Fusion Floor Shell Pack:

        I love the 17" deep bass drum. . .smaller footprint than the now-standard 18" depth. My 12" tom sounds great with a double-ply head, but I found the 16" floor sounds better with a single-ply. Snare is fine but I have a little aluminum snare I favor so the wood snare that comes with kit has been set aside for now. I prefer a white reso head on the bass to black, but that's a minor issue. What else? Well, this is a great little kit and I'm glad to have got it back in hand. I'm going to go play it now.
        I got a four-piece version of this kit (22 12 16 14) and love it so much I bought it back from a guy who bought it off me. Everything is cool here except some people might find the arm on the tom post too short. . .Yamaha makes a longer version. This problem may be solved with the double tom holder, not sure.
        Yamaha is more known for birch drums, but either way, they know how to make drums. These are simply beautiful in lacquer finish and very well constructed.
        For a mid-level kit, these drums are a bit high. . .but compared to Yamaha's top lines, which run into the mid four figures, these are a good value. If you take care of them, they could be the last drums you ever buy. . .MORE than adequate for the working musician. . .you would be proud to take these on a gig, and they would hold up to regular work.
