Borrowing from our legendary Recording Custom drum sets, the world-famous Yamaha birch sound is now available in an affordable package. From the YESS mounting system to the tom ball clamps to the rich lacquer finishes, the Stage Custom Birch encompasses value, quality, and craftsmanship.
An incredible value, the legendary tone of an all-birch Yamaha drumset is now available in the Stage Custom series. The low fundamental and warm tone of Yamaha's birch drums have been the top choice of drummers for over 30 years.
The Stage Custom Birch series is great for the beginner or the working professional. The staggered diagonal seam allows us to build a thin shell that will start round and stay round. The beautiful high-gloss lacquer finish and low-mass lugs lets the shell vibrate for superb tone and sustain.
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.
Stage Custom Birch is available in three configurations as shell packs, as complete drumsets with our 700 series hardware, or as individual components.
