    Sweet. I've been on the Yamaha bus for 10 or so years. I have Recording Customs in Teal (10, 12, 14, 18) and Beech Customs in Blueberry (8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 14sn). I also have an 18 year old 14x5 Dave Weckl Snare (the old ones still had the brass Maple Custom Lugs). I love that drum and play out with it every weekend. I'll bet the finish matches your kit Christiandrummer.

    Sound aside, I've used hardware from every major manufacturer and the Yamaha stuff has outlasted the lot of them. I'm always trying to lighten my stand case and the Yamaha stuff makes for versatile setups. The 10 year old single chain pedal I've beat up and abused and not treated nicely over the years always performs without complaint.

    I've been playing Yamaha Tour Customs for a little over a year now. I have the 700 series hardware, which I chose because they're a lot lighter, and I gig this kit. But even though it's single braced hardware it's amazingly durable and easy to set up and break down. Until recently acquiring a Pearl Elminator hi hat stand, the Yamaha hi hat stand was my hands down favorite. I also use an FP 9315 dual chain pedal with my Mapex kit, and I love that pedal!

    Christiandrummer - you will not regret a Weckl snare. A bit pricey, and bottom head changes suck, but well worth it. I've had mine for 18 years and I'm taking it out for a gig tonight. Also, no matter what quality level kit you have, the bass drum is going to sound great.

    I was just wondering what Yamaha models do you hate and why so? I know that every model of drums might not be for everyone, but I would just like you to expand on your statement to know exactly what you don't like about Yamaha. This might help someone else who might be considering Yamaha drums.

    Thanks,

    When I was pro, My last kit was a Beech Custom in a red apple finish. Beautiful!

    Now I'm getting back into playing again, I wanted a fairly cheap kit, got a Yammaha Gigmaker. Can't imagine there's a better kit for the money.

    Mind you, There are a lot of good kits out there.

    I can't think of anything they don't make well, including all of their concert percussion. Maybe the guitars aren't that great.

    I tapped a bit on one at the last PASIC convention. They sounded nice. In all the ads I've seen, it always in the finish below. Call me crazy, but I don't really care for it.



    If I saw a full set in this finish I might fall in love:



    All the specs here:

    At $5,700 for a 4 piece shell pack, it falls into my "if I win the lottery" category. Nice eye candy, though.

    Yeah, I'm not wild about that finish either. And if I had $5700 to spend on a 4pc shell pack I'm afraid there are an awful lot of options out there!
