    Thought I'd jump in and add my sons set we just got. Any info/tips/tricks would be great!!! I posted in the main area before I saw this post:

    Here is a kit I just got for my 8yr old son, (well he is paying for part of it)

    Yamaha Beech Custom, Made in Japan

    6 pc set:
    10x8 - WTT810 0M-5643
    12x9 - WTT812 0M-5643
    14x11 - WTT814 0M-0134
    16x13 - WTT816 0M-5657
    22x18 - WBD822 0M-5688

    The cymbals are junk (except for 1) so that is the next upgrade path.

    This is a terrible iPhone recording of him playing them for the first time at lunch. He was pretty excited couldn't hardly play.

    I had the pleasure of hearing this kit in person last night during a clinic put on by jazz great Jeff Hamilton.

    2.jpg

    It's Yamaha's flagship Phoenix line in Textured Amber Burst. This is the only model still handcrafted in Japan and it looked and sounded amazing.

    F7AB29D3-5FCE-4934-BAFC-B554E415EAD9_zpsy2atrjvb.jpg

    11 plies make up this kit. The center ply, jatoba, is an extremely hard wood that provides the drum's core note. On either side are four plies of kapur, which is a softer wood than jatoba. The inner and outer plies of the shell are customized, using maple or a combination of a burled ash outer ply and a maple inner ply.

    Kapor is a dipterocarp hardwood from trees of the genus Dryobalanops found in lowland tropical rain forests of Malaysia, Indonesia and South-East Asia. It is a durable construction tropical timber.

    Jatoba is probably most commonly known in North America as “Brazilian Cherry,” and it has been adopted largely by the flooring industry.

    Specs:

    Rack tom: 12x8"
    Floor tom: 14x13"
    Bass drum: 18x16"

    MSRP for 3pc: $4,699.98

    Features:

    30 degree bearing edges
    Die-Cast hoops
    Quick "pop off" lugs.

    Here's a really short :14 sec video I took with my phone to give you an idea how it sounded.

    Welcome to the forum Drumnhands! I have a late 90's stage custom (chestnut brown stain) that I wouldn't trade for noth'in! I did some hardware modifications on the tom mounting end of it and I'm quite pleased on the results. I bought the kit new and l l ordered the 9X10 in. tom a week later and it became a positive thing. I have 6 very good kits and my Stage Custom is definitely one of my GO TO kits!

    Hey Drumnhands, welcome to Drumchat! I'm going to ask you some questions right off. I've been pondering a Phoenix kit for some time now (currently have DW Collectors). I've read so many thing about the Phoenix, and almost all have had nothing but superlative reports. I wanted to know if the Phoenix drums are still being manufactured by hand in Japan. Are there any 'unpublished' examples of finishes that are available? If an order was placed today, do you have a sense at all at what delivery time might be?

    Looking forward to hearing back from you, and again, welcome!
    Now, just a tiny bit less than an absolute drum newbie

    I can answer at least two of those questions.

    The PHX were, are and will be made in Japan.

    This is the latest color catalog, the PHX line has the most options regarding finishes and outer-ply options:

    I opted for the Ash Textured Garnett Mono:
