    Yamaha Recording CustomPublished on 11/25/04 at 15:00
    Full blown set used with a few stands, cymbals, and some e-drums stuff for $2200. Had to ship from Ohio to West Coast to get it.

    They say these are the most recorded drums in history & I know why. Before I bought them, I hit a local Guitar Center & tried the current selection of DW's, etc. While I was there I sat on Yamaha's latest top-of-the-line birch set. It felt like home right away. While I was there, a guy came hrough who had been playing for so 40+ years. He tried everything in the store. I got up from the birch kit & told him to give them a try. He didn't want to get off either.

    They say drums "age" into their tone as the wood grows older. So I elected the predecessors......

He didn't want to get off either.

    They say drums "age" into their tone as the wood grows older. So I elected the predecessors of the current Yamaha birch setup & have no regrets.

    Sidebar: I ran into David Garabaldi at a drum clinic after watching him play a set of RC's with TOP. Asked him why he was not playing the newer set. His response )paraphrased) was: I have a lot of different Yamaha kits. To make this gig I had to pull these out of storage. I forgot how good they are. In fact, these may be my favorite drums, even better than my new ones. Drums seem to age, and these have aged well.

    His set was an anniversary set of RC's.

    Nuff' said.

    nothing. seriously. great construction, great tone, superb upper end hardware.

    Ten on a ten scale. Really, when you get to this level, how can you go wrong.

    I would HIGHLY recommend a set of Yamaha Recording Customs to anyone. Yeah, I know, they do not have all the "coolness" of the current DW's, and certainly their classic cherry wine & black colors seem boring compared to what DW & Pearl put out (of even some of Yamahas new stuff). Then again, you get the most recorded drums in history, top quality, and a nice looking set. Steve Gadd played these for years, along with Dave Weckl, Garibaldi, and many others. I don't usually buy into endorsements, but having owned a set, I also know they didnt just do it for the money.

    I remake that choice without hesitation and even if I had the euros to buy another drumkit more upscale I think I will take the same new
    I think I prefer the birch toms, we pan to the batteries but maple birch high end is very good too

    This is certainly the most widely used drumkit in the studio. The sound is very controlled. It's clean. To each to see if this feature suits because of the coup, it lacks a little personality.
    The volume is very clear he also controlled. This explains its popularity in the studio. Attention to those who have a very powerful snare drum configuration for caf-conc ', the balance of the instrument might seem pretty lame.
    The highlight is the ease of adjustment. No need to spend hours to control troublesome harmonics.
    When the style of music you can play with, rock, funk, variety, etc.. Maybe not enough to warm overtones of jazz and not enough projection of rock "bad". Anyway, you can......

    Personally, for the rock at that price (about 2000 euros), I would go see Pearl in which the big banks in hell or Tama drums which have a projection at the top.

    10 years and 1 year of yamaha recording custom on, a real pleasure.
    Felt pretty powerful sound according rglages. A drumkit that can play a number of varied music.
    But I must say that recently (4 months) I switch brands because I dcouvers a lesser marks with many advantages: _Country qualitprix _the sound rather surprising _the disign (BASIX)
    YAMAHA is YAMAHA Finally, we know the batteries for their quality but on the day of today we come to ask if you do not pay the mark a little "too" from the novelty that we see

    I hesitated between a maple or a custom dorce sonor 3003 but my choice turned to Yamaha Recording Custom and I'm really happy with this one the sound is warm and very easy to adjust and suitable for all types of music This drumkit is a must live in the studio and it is almost perfect

    I play the drums for almost 30 years I try all makes and brands with no city ever since I played with Yamaha Recording Custom 9000 I am more than satisfied as it is a versatile drumkit and I owned with Sonny Emory signature snare drum and a snare on his Maple Custom Absolute fishing and very accurate and I play everything and confirmed tried another drummer in the studio and live is the top of the drumkit's high-end current market despite the years that I play with the other brand, since I'm on yamaha recording custom I am proud and filled with extraordinary and his tone is a pleasure to play with

    any drummer who will be able to try with my opinion it mixes with all types of cymbals and snare yamaha signature
    I suggest if you want a drumkit top, but at a high price is quite justified for the professional quality I do not regrettte monachat if it's a remake it is a pleasure

    ps: after saw the two negative comments about this drumkit I am asking a question if he actually try this drumkit and compared with BASIX is ridiculous and absurd this drumkit is the drumkit is impeccable enrigistré the most and those who play well and make good use of this drumkit will be the angel should have at least 10/10 in general note

    I have tried many other models of major brands, which are also of quality, it must be reconnatre, but the birch is Ingal Recording and finish ..... What's more, it is BEAUTIFUL !!!!!
    It's high-end hardware, and, as such, must pay the price, but there is nothing scandalous al .... This is a versatile instrument trs, which allows 'evolve in all styles, as I said dj, and sometimes can be blamed a lack of personality but for me, this argument has no value, because the personality c 'is the drummer who must have, not the drumkit!
    Basically, it's pro gear, to confirm the musician beginners may find there not be a consideration.
    APRS its inception thirty years, the Recording is a must, often copied never gal .....
    I do it again without hsiter this choice, of course ...!!!!!!

    APRS reading other opinions on this drumkit, I do not understand that we can put it in competition with a "Basix "....
    For me it's like comparing a Lexus with Logan!! Terrible!
