  • Item Details

    Shell Pack means drums only - no stands, pedals, thrones, or cymbals are included. If the toms are directly mounted to the bass drum, that mount IS included.

    Yamaha collaborated with legendary drummer Steve Gadd for years to come up with the 2016 Recording Custom design. Made to feel comfortable and seasoned right out of the box, these drums feature wide workable tuning ranges and a fat bass tone.

    The shells are made from six plies of birch (painted dark brown inside) with 30 degree bearing edges - specs Steve chose for minimal sound interference between drums, clear stroke articulation, a sharp response, and wide tuning ranges.

    Yamaha has equipped the shells with Weighted High Tension Lugs that intentionally reduce sound from the shell to help you get clarity and avoid unwanted noise without using any external mutes.

    Toms are mounted via the YESS Tom Mounting System and the floor toms feature open-type leg brackets, both of which serve to enhance decay.

    This drum set is equipped with 1.6mm steel triple-flanged hoops, Remo Coated Ambassador Heads and Clear Ambassador Heads on the toms, and a Coated Ambassador Batter Head and Smooth White Powerstroke 3 Resonant Head on the bass drum.
