Birch wood construction offers a cutting low-end sound
The Yamaha Stage Custom shells are constructed from 6 plies of 100 birch wood which is a classic wood choice for drums because of its boosted high frequencies and good low end. It’s ideal for applications requiring extra presence and cut. It’s a classic choice for high-end drum kits but the Stage Custom is affordable enough for anyone from students to more established players.
Compact size – ideal for travel
These small diameter shells deliver the Stage Custom sound without compromise. They are ideal for jazz, light sessions work and small venues or as a great all-round second kit for a wide variety of musical styles. The shells can be tuned higher and make less noise than bigger drums, making them perfect for music that requires something ‘light and tight’.
The tom is mounted via the YESS system which helps eliminate potential dampening that happens when the hardware is drilled directly into the shell and gives the tom more resonance and volume.
A tribute to Yamaha design technology, their original ball mount and clamp has gone through very few modifications over the years. A large, ultra-hard resin ball sits in an attractive chromed housing, held in place with a titanium ergonomic wing bolt. It is the ultimate drummer-friendly mount, offering non-slip positioning virtually anywhere. It also permits tuning of the bottom head by simply rotating the drum.
New Stage Custom also adopts die-cast claw hooks with rubber insertion plates to reduce noises. The bass drum legs of Stage Custom have special stoppers to make setting easier. all the heads are Remo which ensures reliable and consistent tone and performance.
