    I do gig a Tour Custom kit (maple), and I really like it. I use the Yamaha 700 series single braced hardware and it's lightweight and amazingly sturdy and durable.
    Is this the second or third generation (or, does it have the tuning fork logo)?

    My TC's were purchased new about a little over a year ago....they're 2007 model I believe, so I assume third generation?

    Must be. They redesigned the hardware somewhere around 2003(?). First gen hardware has a red band, second has a purple band, and third is when the tuning fork logo came into use/ offset titlers/memory locks/wing nuts holding the boom at a 90 degree pinch instead of 180. Third gen is a bit lighter in weight, if I'm not mistaken.

    That's a GREAT price if they're in good shape....but if you haven't seen the Sakura White in person, you could be in for a surprise. It's got a pinkish cast to it....I'm more of a fan of the old White Marine Pearl type of white finishes, so it wasn't appealing to me at all.

    I'm thinking you're gonna be really pleased with those Renowns once you've had to chance to test drive em.

    Hmmm.. I have seen the Sakura white finish and I actually kinda like it!
    The sound of the TCs is impressive..I really liked the way yours sounded Norske.. The Renouns are indeed nice tubs..they are so pretty..I'm kinda afraid to take 'em outta the house to gigs! aww, poo! here we go again!..... -Les
    BTW, The TCs are in near perfect condition.

    Yamaha 40th Anniversary Temple Silver
    This kit is on the Guitar Center new arrivals page. Interesting that the bd logo shows 2007. Anyway, I haven't seen this before. Seems to be a birch recording custom with a cool finish.

    I like the - YAMI TEMPLE Silver.

    I've got the original catalog advertising the Washi shellpack and the Temple Silver drums. There are only 40 of each shellpacks out there somewhere in the world. Either (or both) would be nice to have!

    WASHI is my favorite:

    Sweet. I had forgotten about those. Isn't that watercolored paper applied to the shell? The long lugs were a bad call with a graphic like that, though.

    I hear what you're saying about the "long lugs", however these are a reissue of the "legendary" YD9000 drums.

    It doesn't say in the catalog what the wrap finish is made of, it does say what it depicts: It's a GEMPEI WAR BYOUBU (folding screen) that tells a tale of the war between the Genji and Heike clans which is a record taken from Japanese medieval literature...........
    The original folding screen is located at the Takamatsu Historical Museum, Takamatsu, Kagawa Japan.

    Drum sizes 2216, racks 10x9, 12x10, floors 1414, 1616 snare 14x6.5
    Birch 7ply shells, bearing edges 60%, Remo heads on all drums

    I'm no big historian - I paraphrased the above from the 40 year Anniversary catalog I have. I'd say Yamaha did a smashing job on the idea and the drums. I don't own any Yamaha drums (yet) but the drums I've seen look pretty nice.

    I'm now recalling something about the finish. I believe it was water-color on rice paper that was applied to the shell then finished over. I saw one at a Pasic convention and took a pic, which is now nowhere to be found of course. Beautiful.

    I keep forgetting to post this. I work at a sportswear company that decorates school jackets as part of its business. I wanted an excuse to get a big black wool and leather coat because Ohio winters really suck, so I had this made. I know its infringement, but they don't sell them and I won't make another, so I think I can live with myself. Plus, it looks cool.



    I do get dirty looks from people with Harley jackets because they think it's a motorcycle coat.
