    Yamaha Stage Custom

    Yamaha Stage CustomPublished on 07/18/02 at 15:00
    Bought Shell kit used. I was looking for an average Easy to carry kit not too expensive kit(Compared to my full Rack, 7 pieces Ayotte Custom). Paid 500$

    Very good Yamaha quality. Sound is round and focused. I put Remo Emperor on the batter side to give it more lows. I've compared it to Tama Rockstars, Pearl Exports and it wins high hands.

    Nothing really.

    Bearing edges are smooth. Finish is somewhat less glossy as standard gloss finish but is cool nonetheless. I added RIMS suspension system.

    Very good drum. Hardware is of very good quality. A good drum fo live and even studio work. Not as expensive as top of the line drums but will do most to everything you want.

    I have a Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage cramberry red.
    I use it for almost two years, I love the sound of the toms and bass drum and cymbal stands, the finish is impeccable and I do not like the skins come with strikes and walk charley is a bit but served the Lege, I tried a lot of model before but for the price and quality I chose Yamaha (I bought a boom stand double braced super strong and cheap!) the price / quality ratio is excellent and the choice I would do without hesitation!

    I work with on stage since 2001 (well, not me, and my drummer ....) forthe price is a bargain !!!!!! The original hardware is super quality, whether the feet, the shells ... super finish ... The snare drum is easy to adjust and sounds very good (white Remo Ambassador). For the toms (10, 12, 14) is a little trickier, but with the ambassador (white or transparent) one arrives at a result more honest. The bass drum (22) was transformed by a kit evans (hits + + reso cushion adjustable). It is powerful (for the piano bar, you'd better take the 20) with the attack and good bass, even if not a great touch. In summary, I think that's the best deal for a confirmed fan, or as a booster drumkit is pro…

    As my comrades!

    Very very good small drumkit. Unbeatable value for money! C true that Hardwares are exceptional better than the high ranges in Pearl and Tama. The bass drum sound (mine is 22x18) is great one of the best I know.
    For me the only two black dots are the setting of the toms to get the sound I wished I had put large mutes (I could also change the skins), and the second black dot c pedal kick box that slides, it is neither anti-c slip slightly annoying sometimes as fast game.

    In addition we find Occasions at very low ...... Go for it and love it!

    It is awesome!
    I've got a Stage Custom Standard, January 2002. Kit: 10 ", 12", 14 "GC 20".
    (I have not kept the original DC, I had better.)
    I use it on stage (interior and exterior) and in the studio and frankly it's happiness,
    both rock a bit stronger than for the lighter pop.
    Adaptability unbeatable value for money for that matter.
    The feet and fasteners toms are very resistant, it counts.
    Grandchose not to blame him ... it's my baby!
    In this range, it is the most efficient.

    It will be 6 years that I use it and never disappointed!
    G started learning it, and hold it with me in my concerts!
    Strong, sturdy pe count on it!
    only reproach attached to the floor tom legs ride cymbals! sometimes it moves bcp! better add some feet!
    Otherwise I jazz format, below the standard format.
    Yet I play rock with ... it's basically a style! qd not even, but all that to say that accommodates its particular style has tt! Just find what you want!
    He was a model expo, I got it at half price! So cete do! g pa avc really compare to ur model! but if that was in again I'd do it again!

    It's been some weeks that I use

    nice color (painted cepandant fragile like all painted I suppose ..)
    the sound is good, the tom bass sound to clamp on a cymbal stand or rack, the sound is better. I thought this system was not very stable (fixed a tom of 14 and 16 for a single-braced cymbal stand!) but not actually ca not move too much. the cymbal stand (2 pole included) is the area asser solid, stable. Charley's foot is OK. bass drum pedal is not great on the other hand ...
    the fastening system of triple tom ball is effectively and helps set a boom very well placed for a splash.
    only the pedal is really throwing

    This small drumkit is well placed for the time compared with the competition for the same price range at its (not it either ...), exeptional strength.
    the difference between standard and advantage vien mainly painted so if I would take it over again surely the standard model

    2 years of use
    This is the best value for money market ... Nothing to do with a Pearl Export example!
    For a midrange, it sounds really fine, even recording (studio pro) is doing it (but hey its just 80% of the musician!).

    The bass drum 22 'will really get a big sound with lots of sub.
    Toms 12 'and 16' are adjusted in 2-stroke 3 movements and as usual the 13 'just fuck the shit!

    In conclusion: build quality, robustness, its happening everywhere ... Ideal for turning on a budget ... Or start the drumkit with a real instrument!

    I bought this farm in 2003 and I can say that I did not spare (4 concerts a month everywhere in France and elsewhere and 2 rehearsals per week)

    level of value for money is no picture ... it's all good. The single-braced legs emplement enough (and more is less cumbersome and often when they are carrying is appreciable).

    I have the following config ADVANTAGE GC 20 / 10 12 14 tom suspended CC Wood. I took this config because I play in several groups of different styles (jazz, rock, noise), the bass drum is very powerful set properly (not skin tight and just a little foam inside) but far too dependent on the acoustic the room where we play. I never used the tom 12 but on 10 and 14 sounded…

I never used the tom 12 but on 10 and 14 sounded well ... but they sound much better since I put white skins.
    I traded the 14-tom suspended for an old floor tom 16 (more powerful and less boring than suspended) the snare is not bad but sounds only when it is super tight (and as I already a pearl floting free copper, it does not serve me much good set like that)

    ditto for the kick pedal, I do have never served because I already had an iron cobra.

    I tried quite a model and a full drumkit before (without cymbals anyway) at this price is given but stop ... but it is given (in addition she is pretty cramberie in red)

    with a budget so tight, I say mud.

    I use it for 3 years, yes it is a good drumkit, all style.
    It's a free drumkit carractère but it is well to everyone.

    It is a very very good drumkit.
    the fixed feet and stand its really good.

    a great choice for money unbeatable.
    Yes I do it again this choice without hesitation.

    I have a Yamaha Stage Custom Fusion (20 ", 10, 12, 14) (Black) for 8 years now, she saw the scenes and studio!
    It is a very good drumkit, at least for the price. The advantage is that it is very versatile and can play anything with, though not very powerful for the big rock / metal, much like Yamaha.
    I rarely used the snare of origin because I have a Mapex 13x4 "wood, an unknown model that sounds serious. As for the bass drum pedal, I prefer playing on my DW 5000 even though the Yamaha n is not gross.

    The Yamaha Stage Custom is a great step up from the beginner lines.  It uses a great pack of birch shells that never fail to impress, and the hardware is rock solid, like in most Yamaha products.  This is a common drum set I see at gigs or in studios.  The number of products in a market usually isn’t an indicator of quality, but with the Yamaha Stage Custom is certainly is.  I have never owned this kit, but have played on it many times and have owned similar, comparable Yamaha kits. 

    The birch wood shells sound really warm and bright.  You can tell it is birch right away (if tuned properly), and the sound really lends itself to a recording situation.  The toms are excellent, and can be …

    The Yamaha Stage Custom is a great step up from the beginner lines.  It uses a great pack of birch shells that never fail to impress, and the hardware is rock solid, like in most Yamaha products.  This is a common drum set I see at gigs or in studios.  The number of products in a market usually isn’t an indicator of quality, but with the Yamaha Stage Custom is certainly is.  I have never owned this kit, but have played on it many times and have owned similar, comparable Yamaha kits. 

    The birch wood shells sound really warm and bright.  You can tell it is birch right away (if tuned properly), and the sound really lends itself to a recording situation.  The toms are excellent, and can be tightened hard to produce a really crisp, high pitched timbale-like sound in smaller tom diameters.  If left loose, they embrace deeper qualities, and the variation is surprising.  The bass drum is good, especially when hollow.  I really like the sound an empty birch bass drum makes in the studio.  The snare is probably the weakest part, but that not saying much.  It blends with the rest of the kit well.

    The Yamaha hardware is one of the best parts to this kit.  The ball in socket hardware is simple, but effective.  It is bulky, in a good way, providing sturdy support and easy adjustment.  It doesn't look super fancy, but it totally gets the job done.  I have an eye for quality, so I feel that it looks great.  The shells themselves are gorgeous, and the multiple shell pack options are all good.  I was mostly familiar with the red/orange fade, which was great. I really suggest this product to anyone out there looking for an affordable birch kit with longevity and character.  If maple is desired, spring for the tour custom.  Otherwise, look no further.

    I've been recording with the Yamaha Stage Custom drum set for about five or six years. While I am not a drummer, I know what good drums sound like from recording so many different types of sets. I have done a lot of sessions with the Yamaha Stage Custom and have always been happy with the results I can. Granted the drummer that I usually use this with is a very good drummer, but I have used this kit with a number of different drummers and have always been happy with the way they sound.

My favorite part about this kit is the kick drum, as it is very full and has a nice thump to it. The tom toms are very good sounding as well. The snare is good, but I have definitely heard better snares out there and I try to use another snare most of the time while I am recording. Beyond this, the hardware is sturdy and it holds up well over time. As long as you change the heads and keep proper care of this drum set, it is definitely capable of sounding good for a long time. Being the giant company that Yamaha is, they have the ability to make this drum set as affordable as it is. It is a high quality drum kit that any serious drummer could probably afford, and is great for practicing, to bring to live shows, or for recording. While it is marketed as a live set, it will work fine in the studio, but is indeed probably best suited for live shows and practicing when compared to the Yamaha Studio Custom. It not only has a great sound, but it feels good to play and is definitely easy on the eyes. It is overall very impressive and is an awesome drum kit great for all types of players and situations.
