The Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak 4 Piece Rock Shell Pack in Charcoal Sunburst combines oak and phenolic to deliver a kit sound filled with articulate attack and punchy power.

Made For Live Performance

Released at NAMM 2019, the Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak blends attention grabbing looks with superb sounding tone.

Featuring shells constructed from a special 7 ply hybrid of oak and phenolic, the Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak kit deliver accentuated attack and projection.

Offering the cut needed to pierce through the mix in live settings, this Yamaha kit also delivers punch and power to ensure a substantial depth of tone.

In addition to the powerful tom sound, the kit also features a bass enhancement weight system to ensure a kick tone filled with tight focus.

The stunning finish of this shell pack is achieved through the use of a traditional Japanese UZUKURI process that perfectly emphasises the natural beauty of the Oak grain.

Delivering the level of beautiful tone we’ve come to expect from Yamaha, the Live Custom Hybrid Oak is a superb kit in both style and sound.

Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak 4 Piece Shell Pack Configuration:

  • 10” x 7” Rack Tom
  • 12” x 8” Rack Tom
  • 16” x 15” Floor Tom
  • 22” x 18” Bass Drum

Characterful Charcoal

Providing an aesthetic filled with sophisticated style, this Yamaha Live Custom shell pack features a centre band of light charcoal grey that tapers into a darker black at the edges of the drums.

Courtesy of a traditional Japanese finishing process called Uzukuri, the clay like colour is accentuated perfectly by the black grain that runs through the shell to deliver a truly unique drum kit aesthetic.

This unique finishing process begins by sanding the soft areas of the wood grain before covering the whole shell in a thin layer of black paint.

After the black paint has infiltrated the grain of the wood, the shells are then sanded again to remove any excess paint before a final finishing coat is applied.

Perfectly accentuating the natural beauty of the oak grain, this beautiful process produces a drum kit with a striking aesthetic to match its stunning tone. 

Hybrid Shells

Taking inspiration from the hybrid shells of the flagship Yamaha PHX and Absolute Hybrid Maple kits, the Live Custom Hybrid features a 7-ply shell construction consisting of centre sheets of dense phenolic acrylic surrounded by plies of oak.

The balance of the two materials serves to produce a drum sound with an enhanced dynamic range capable of producing the attack and projection needed for live performance.

Known for its soft highs, substantial mid-range and warm bottom end tone, Oak delivers a kit sound filled with big punch and quick decay.

Meanwhile, the phenolic acrylic produces a warm response across all frequencies to deliver powerful attack and presence perfect for cutting through the mix in live settings.

All of the shells are finished with 45 degree bearing edges which further help the cutting attack and articulation of the stunning oak hybrid drums.

The combination of oak, phenolic and 45-degree edges works to deliver a kit sound packed with warm low-end power and quick, cutting articulation to ensure you have ultimate impact on stage.

Bass Enhancement

The bass drum of the Yamaha Live Custom Oak kit is fitted with unique bass enhancement weights which have been specifically designed to ensure a punchy focused tone.

Styled on the design of the Yamaha Absolute Lugs, these weights are studded to the interior of the bass drum at the lug points and work to attenuate the low-mid frequencies of the kick sound.

The result is a bass drum that deliver a wonderfully tight and well-focused tone to ensure powerful projection ideal for live settings.

YESS Mount

An upgraded version of the popular YESS II tom mount, this new model further aids the natural resonance of the toms.

Rather than drilling into the tom shells which drastically impedes the drums resonance, the YES III mount system attaches to the tom via the hardware to avoid contact with the shell.

As a result, the shell is allowed to vibrate more freely which helps to bring out more of the shell’s natural sustain and volume, ensuring a substantial, tone-filled tom sound.

The Yamaha Hybrid Oak drum kit also comes complete with the Yamaha TH945B tom holder to provide convenient and secure mounting of the rack toms from the bass drum. 

Dark Silver Hardware

All the shells of this Yamaha drum kit are adorned with dark silver hardware which perfectly complements the deep, black grain of the shell finish.

The interior of the shells is also finished in black to further tie together the whole aesthetic of this beautiful drumkit.

All drums in the kit are fitted with Yamaha’s exclusive Absolute Lugs to add a sleek and streamlined touch of sophistication to the shell appearance.

Die-Cast Bass Hooks

The 22” bass drum of this Yamaha kit is fitted with die-cast hooks which have been designed to deliver noise free function through the use of insertion plates.

Providing a strong, secure and reliable hold of the bass drum hoop to ensure your kick drum stays in tune, the die-cast hooks are fitted with insertion plates to protect the hoop against the hooks as well as ensuring noise isolation between the hook and hoop.

The result is stable bass drum tuning, a protected bass drum hoop and noise free playing.

Dyna Hoops

Each of the toms in the Yamaha Hybrid Oak Rock drum kit are fitted with 2.3mm Dyna Hoops and Remo drumheads.

The thick steel of the Dyna Hoops provides a tighter sound and sharper response from the drums, ideal for live performance.

The toms are fitted with Remo Clear Emperor batter heads and Remo Ambassador resonant heads to deliver deep sound and superb durability, while the bass drum features a Remo P3 Ebony bass batter head and logo printed resonant head.

Floor Tom Brackets

The 16” x 15” floor tom of this Yamaha Live Custom kit is fitted with compact tom brackets which feature wing bolts specifically designed to clamp the floor tom legs tightly without causing damage.

Delivering a hold you can rely on, these floor tom brackets have been created to help save time on stage and to deliver optimum decay control to ensure your floor tom sings with robust sustain.


Providing the ultimate in high end aesthetics and tone, the Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak Rock kit is the perfect choice for live performance.

The blend of Oak and Phenolic works to deliver ultimate power and articulation to ensure you make an impact on stage, while the use of the traditional Uzukuri finishing process provides a kit with a stunning aesthetic.

Topped off with sleek dark silver hardware, Remo heads and the YESS mounting system, this Yamaha drum kit offers the ideal way to add some cutting attack and powerful punch to your playing.
