With the introduction of the Stage Custom in 1995, Yamaha, once again, set the standard for value and sound. Yamaha Stage Custom Birch features 100% Birch shells with Absolute-style lugs and YESS mounting system.
Includes: 22inch Head x 17inch Depth Kick Drum w/Spurs and CL-945LBW Tom Mount and TH-945C Tom Holder - 10inch Head x 07inch Depth & 12inch Head x 08inch Depth Mounted Tom - 16inch Head x 15inch Depth Floor Tome w/Legs - 14inch Head x 05.5inch Depth matching Snare Drum.
The shell is a key factor in the drum's ability to "rumble" or resonate. Accordingly, the Stage Custom - a classic in the realm of high-class drum kits - employs 100% birch. Moreover, with its six-ply structure, the Stage Custom accurately conveys the vibrations produced at the impact surface, achieving performance that transcends anything in its class.
The secret of our Y.E.S.S. system is twofold: first, it ensures minimum contact between the hardware and shell, and second, it connects that hardware to the nodal point* of the drum - the point at which it will not interfere with shell vibration. Nylon bushings on rod clamps afford maximum stability. Y.E.S.S. also allows toms to be placed close together without interfering with quick head changes, and on floor toms, Y.E.S.S. offers wide open sustain while keeping toms stable under the heaviest strokes. * Nodal point mounting is patented by the Noble & Cooley Drum
A tribute to Yamaha design technology, our original ball mount and clamp have not changed much over the years. A large, ultra-hard resin ball sits in an attractive chromed housing, held in place with a titanium ergonomic wing bolt. It is the ultimate drummer-friendly mount offering non-slip positioning and tuning of the bottom head by simply rotating the drum.
Die-cast claw hooks with rubber insertion plates help to reduce noise.
