“Best drums I ever had”

Product Rating Product Review This is the best drums I ever had. I got these drums to reduce room in the musician area at my church and wanted something that was going to be more impactful to the service. I had to change the stock heads that came with it to Evans head. When I added my Evans heads to the kit, it took it to the next level. I have to admit I was skeptical of the smaller bass drum, but once I added the EMAD head to it, let me tell you. It took me by surprise sounding powerful. The shells provides the durability and stability for pounding them. The way the intertwine with my zildjian cymbals makes it sound like a harmonizing cortet group. I love them and well worth every penny. American Musical Supply has me drooling over this product and let me tell you there was a reason why. I highly recommend you get them they can be used for any venue.

Semi pro kit at a low price point!!!!

Product Review Pros: The all birch Stage Custom series is a semi pro quality at entry level pricing. I chose the natural wood model and it has a deep and slightly tinted finish that is simply amazing. Solid Yamaha hardware rounds out this shell pack. Cons: For a kit in this price point I expect it to ship with better stock heads. The insides of the shells and bass drum hoops could use more sanding as they were very rough. Unless you use a bass drum riser you’ll need to shorten your beater post or it will hit the bottom of the head. Not deal breakers but worth mentioning. This was shipped quickly thanks to AMS!!! It came in the original manufacturer’s box which was perfectly packed and all components were well protected.

Yamaha has raised the bar once again

Product Review Just received the set and I am pleased that the hardware has been upgraded and these drums are a quality product. I owned and played one of these sets 4 years ago, and it was always getting complements from other musicians on the tone and looks. With that set I had put clear pinstripe heads and had it tuned very low for classic rock and the drums thumped. For this new set I am going to have it setup only for a high jazz tuning and just after one day, I can tell you these shells sing! I am very happy that I decided to go with these drums again. Cannot wait to play them in a band situation. Thanks again Yamaha for a great set, and thanks to AM for their payment plan.

A Really Nice Small Shell Kit

Product Review I really like the sound of this small shell kit. The tone is rich and focused on all the drums. The natural finish is flawless and pleasant to look at too! This is my first birch set; I really like the warm tone of this wood. The kit appears extremely well-made and durable. I have been looking for a small set for quite some time and this kit exceeds all my expectations.
