Featuring 100% birch shells, the Stage Custom Birch is a loud set with great projection. Working professionals and beginnings love the responsiveness plus the way the crisp snare complements the fat notes of the tom while the bass is undeniably rocking.
The staggered diagonal seam allowed to build a thin drum shell that will start round and stay round. The low-mass lugs lets the shell vibrate for superb tone and sustain. Air seal system used for drum shell construction ensures each and every drum shell is of uniform thickness and is perfectly round to achieve superior tone quality and durability. Features a beautiful high-gloss lacquer finish. Hardware and cymbals sold separately.
The shell is a key factor in a drum's ability to "rumble," or resonate. Accordingly, the Stage Custom employs 100% birch - a classic in the realm of high-class drum kits. Moreover, with its six-ply structure the Stage Custom accurately conveys the vibrations produced at the impact surface, achieving performance that overwhelms anything in its class.
Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System – YESS
The secret of the YESS system is twofold: First, it provides minimum contact of hardware with shell; second, it connects that hardware at 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. The YESS system permits toms to be placed close together, and does not interfere with quick head changes. On floor toms, our YESS system offers wide open sustain while keeping toms stable under the heaviest strokes. * Nodal point mounting is patented by the Noble & Cooley Drum Company.
Ball Mount and Clamp
A tribute to Yamaha design technology, our original ball mount and clamp has gone through modifications 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 virtually anywhere the drummer can imagine. Additionally, it permits tuning of the bottom head by simply rotating the drum.
