MGR/Carsen's review"Yamaha Oak Custom Drums"

Yamaha Oak Custom
I bought these drums at Long & Mcquade in Victoria, B.C., for $2185 Canadian dollars. It came with a 22"x17" kick, 10"x9", 12"x10", 14x12" toms and a 14"x5.5" snare. Included all mounting hardware plus Yamaha double kick pedal, 2 single braced boom stands, hi hat stand, snare stand. I bought this kit because I rented it for a month and loved the look and the sound.

These drums are gorgeous. Oak grain is by far the nicest looking out of all woods used for drum-making. As for sound, I find this kit much quieter than the previous kit I owned (Pearl Masters Studio BRX), and much more punchy, which is great. It sounds like a real organic kit. The kick drum is powerful and bassy, but not overwhelming. The toms are responsive, clear and very resonant with lots of highs and mids and lows. I wasn't totally fond of the snare drum as it has a little snare fan underneath the batter head to give extra attack, but I found this device annoying as the snare strands broke off and rattled inside the drum. Consequently, this drum was replaced by the Yamaha 14x6 Anton Fig maple snare drum with maple hoops. As for the hardware, it is typical Yamaha genious with the ball mount tom mounts and super-suportive cymbal stands (they're only single-braced too!). The double kick pedal was a promotion from the store and it is the double-wide chain drive pedal....great feel. A complete bargain!

The only problem I have with this kit aside from the snare drum is that some lugs on the 14" tom do not want to stay tightened, which means that almost every day I have to retighten those lugs....not a big problem but for those who are not great at tuning, it could become a problem.

Yamaha quality construction and quality, enough said :)

Bottom line: Buy these drums! I had a Pearl Masters Studio BRX kit before this and it sounded good, but for the money, these Oak drums sound just as good, plus, they're a couple thousand dollars cheaper. Even a bigger bonus is that they're more gorgeous than any maple or birch kit than you'll ever see.
