MGR/Miller's review"Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Nouveau"

Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Nouveau
After creating a Christian Funk band and playing in it for a year I was ready for a step up in my drum kits. So I set out for a 2000 grand drum kit and ending up buying a these beautiful vintage natural finish maple custom absolute nouveau drums a samual music. The price ended up being 2200 I think for this 6 piece shell pack including two set of mounting clamps from the store. It was a very good deal.

These drums look so beautiful with the Natural Vintage finish especially, sound better then any other drums out there, user friendly because their easy to tune and stay in tune, punchy for funk or open for rock, these drums just cover it all.
I get a lot of positive feedback from other people and bands at shows and stuff. THESE DRUMS ARE AWESOME...I can't think of any other drums that can even compare. Don't you even think paying over 3 grand from these dumb DW kits or ORANGE COUNTY kits when this made in japan maple beauty sounds better with a price tag of 2200!!!!!

These isn't one thing that I can complain about with these drums.......I been playing drums from 8 years. I know what areas to look for problems in, there isn't ANY!!!!!!!!

The quality is perfect....the Rims and hardware on the drums is light and shiney.........and doesn't not stratch easy!
The construction of the drums is amazing.
The drum shell itself is one of smoothest, best hand crafted drums I've ever seen.
Not only are the drums hand crafted..the finish is also hand applied!

I've always been an import fan.......from cars to now drums. Don't turn your back on one the greatest sounding drum kits in the world for one of lowest prices just because its a YAMAHA....not a American made drum.

Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Nouveau
Got these at AJ's Pro Percussion in Tampa Fl. for about $1,900 (Shells Only) 5 pc. kit, played by Anton Fig in a clinic at the store, and they are 10", 13" mounted, 16"floor,22X18 kick.

These are the Nouveau line with the new quick release lug design which makes changing heads ultra fast, and it's the new blue sparkle finish.
The kit tuly sounds awesome, looks awesome ,is easy to tune. The kick drum is a cannon, full of tone, warm tone rich toms.

Whats not to like?? I cant find anything that I didn't like.

Awesome Yamaha quality, rock solid.

I am extremly pleased with these. An excellent high end kit, worth the extra coin. AAA+++

- How long have you use it?
Since 2005. My config t. is 8x8, 10x9, 12x10, 14x12, 16x14, 22x18. All my Toms are suspended (including 14 '' & 16 '') and the finish is gray with black dgrade veins exposed wooden direct light.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I played on a Stage Custom incomprable before ... !!!
I love everything particulirment the bass drum, but the toms are not left ... the sound is warm wishes for the fts & offer superb sound projection!
The shells of the fixing system "new" is really great! Change a skin only takes a moment & the aesthetic is, I find, trsrussi! The Mouls aluminum circles are escellente invoice & offers his very rich.
I never really convinced by t YESS suspension system, but I have confessed that it is very effective!
Tend to play my toms in RimShot, 2/3 rods around the strike zone have always had the unfortunate tendency to loosen quickly (like all models I had the opportunity to play since I took this habit of the game), so I install these ties the elements "anti-dsaccordage" from SONOR who rgl the problem immediately!

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I had a MAPEX March then YAMAHA Stage Custom ... nothing to see then! I obviously had the opportunity to play on almost all makes and sries available on the market ...

- How do you report qualitprix?
I have a model that will played by Akira Jimbo at a concert / dmo for brand & on which it was therefore a good promo. The report qualitprix was so irresistible!

- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
Yes!

- How long have you use it?
I just bought the drumkit two weeks ago, and I am totally convinced by this MODEL, which delivers sound to extreme heat, which sustain the word Serat plutt used as harmonic. The projection of sound is thanks to exclente YESS offers great freedom in was.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The color I chose is beautiful, it is the natural vintage, which is not reflected well on camera but that is simply superb in all rel, and the quality of finish is flawless. In Revenge I still have not found ngatif point.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I jou on a number of fairly consquant MODEL before purchasing this tool, Tama rockstar (lower average) Remo Bravo 2 (Excellent price quality ratio) renown Gretch (not bad at all but set 1990 damage) Pearl MMX (large desseption).

- How do you report qualitprix?
I find the report quality price exclent 2590 (personal ngotier course I fell in 2150) for an addition above a 20/10/12/14 I bassbass 16''625 (baiis 112) the set is not excessive compared to high-end pearl-Gretch and co.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
Plutt twice that to be a trs clarity. Eyes closed.
