At PASIC 2012 in Austin TX, the legendary Steve Gadd played on this beautiful drum set while giving a clinic with Pedrito Martinez. That same drum set, one-of-a-kind, is now sitting in our shop, complete with handwritten signatures from Gadd himself on the inside of the snare shell and on a special commemorative snare head. The 6-piece shell pack itself is a Club Custom: 6-ply Kapur shells help give it a warm, dark tone that was the preferred sound for drummers in the 1960's and 1970's - what we consider vintage today. Kapur works very well in acoustic and recording settings. Each shell has a 60-degree bearing edge, which keeps overtones at a minimum while still letting the drums ring for a while.As you can see from the pictures and the video, this particular shell pack also includes 19-ply maple hoops for everything but the bass drum, each coated with Urethane. The result is an even darker sound and the meatiest rimshots possible. Of course, all standard triple-flanged hoops are included (for free) if the maple hoops don't fit your style. The lugs are specially designed for Yamaha Custom drums - with single mounting, they touch the shell as little as possible so the drum gets maximum resonance. The YESS mount on the bass drum holds two toms.The finish on this drum is truly breathtaking - it looks like a wrap, but a closer inspection reveals that the finish has actually been painted on - you can feel the ridges in the design. To further max out this deal, a unique commemorative PASIC Steve Gadd bass drum head has also been included, as well as two bass heads that are actually meant for performance. This drum set is truly unreal, and we have the only one that exists. One person will take it home...will it be you?Shell dimensions:
