The Yamaha Recording Custom Tom Pack consists of 10”, 12” and 16” tom shells, seen here in a beautifully retro-inspired Surf Green finish.
A Modern Re-Imagining of Legendary Drums
Yamaha first released the Recording Custom drums back in the mid-1970s. Originally known as the Yamaha 9000, the Recording Custom kit has since gone on to become an industry standard drum kit.
Recorded more times than any other drum kit in history, the Yamaha Recording Custom series of drums has had a huge influence on what we know as the modern drum kit.
Designed to be the best drums for recording in the studio, as recording technology has progressed, it was important to Yamaha that the Recording Custom series progressed with it.
Designed with Steve Gadd
Steve Gadd, having toured and recorded with some of the biggest names in popular music history, including acts such as Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Paul Simon and Steely Dan, has become an absolute legend in his own right.
Yamaha’s top drum engineers and research & development team worked closely with Gadd over a period of three years where they trialled many different plies and other construction techniques while taking on feedback and ideas from Gadd along the way in order to create a new and improved Recording Custom series.
The end result is a new drum series that has vastly improved upon the previous iterations while retaining the same feel of the Recording Custom that drummers the world over have come to know and love.
100% Birch Shells
Combining classic Yamaha sound with cutting-edge manufacturing improvements, you can enjoy the sound and feel that has made the Recording Custom set so popular while utilising the latest technological advancements.
Each shell is made from 100% Birch 6-ply wood and they feature 30-degree bearing edges. High-tension lugs are used, reminiscent of Yamaha’s famous Absolute lug styling, and are now weighted to improve on the subtler low frequencies, or “ghost notes”.
They also have greater sensitivity to dynamics making them extremely versatile, working great with any style of drumming while perfectly reflecting your expression and the nuances of your performance.
On both the floor and rack toms you will find the top head is Remo US coated Ambassador while the bottom is a Remo US Clear Ambassador.
A Successful Re-Design of a Classic
The old adage would have it that you shouldn’t fix what isn’t broken, however, when Yamaha are able to produce such a fantastic series by re-designing a well-loved and classic drum series, who are we to argue?
Retaining the ease of tuning and incredible feel of the original, the new Recording Custom shells deliver a fantastic full-bodied, punchy and resonant tones. You get a recording perfect sound even before post-recording processing.
Yamaha have taken the Recording Custom line and re-designed it, taking a classic kit and making it even better.
