In collaboration with the legendary Steve Gadd, Yamaha have elevated their iconic Recording Custom Series with forward thinking design elements. Beyond these new features, these shells now produce a more focused and refined sound character.
These shells are made of All North American 6 Ply Birch and feature a re-designed Hi-Tension Lug weighted to enhance lower frequencies. These lugs are designed to be easy to use and easy to tune, giving you a classic sounding kit with re-defined accessibility. The increased weight of these lugs are intended to give you more expressive power while reducing undesirable noise without using a mute.
These features ensure a crisp sound and articulate tone, with optimum sustain for the core sound. These birch shells are punchy and the material is known to further reduce unwanted noise. Birch is also great at giving you clearly defined & delineated strokes, making it ideal for recording environments.
The sizing of these shells give this kit an edge particularly suited to jazz, bop, hip-hop, and similar or adjacent styles. That being said, this Recording Custom is suitable for a wide range of styles and genres of drumming, and contrary to its name would suit a live situation just as much as a recording scenario, it’s also makes it more compact than other Recording Customs , and would be ideal for gigging/ travelling drummers.
