If you are a gigging drummer looking for a kit that will grab everyone's attention, look no further than Yamaha’s Live Custom series. This 5-piece shell pack is primed full of power, presence and punch, adding an extra dimension to your performance and pushing it to all-new heights. Expertly crafted from 1.2mm plies of high-grade Oak, these shells are 10% thicker than those used on Yamaha Oak Custom drums - and its this extra 10% that gives these shells such perfect properties that shine in a live environment. This shell pack comprises of a 10 x 7” rack tom, 12 x 8” rack tom, 14 x 13” floor tom, 16 x 15” floor tom and a 22 x 16” bass drum.
Oak is a brilliant tonewood with a high density that marries clear, defined sound with a powerful low end and a rich timbre, which makes it ideal for drums - but it's this same high density that makes it difficult to work with, which in turn makes it expensive to use, so most drum manufacturers shy away from it. Not Yamaha though. Their fantastic design team has found an economical way to tame this wild wood and masterfully shape it into tonally brilliant drums with a realistic price tag. This kit possesses a full, well-rounded sonic character with fat lows and a boosted high-end for an extraordinary powerful attack.
The bass drum shell is constructed of eight-ply Oak whilst the toms are comprised of six plies and Yamaha’s proprietary Air Seal System ensures a perfectly round shell. This superior shell forming process is the foundation for the Live Custom’s tonal brilliance, ensuring a higher degree of tonal consistency and structural integrity, both of which are further enhanced by the addition of high-quality hardware - Yamaha’s acclaimed Dyna Hoops and Absolut Lugs. All of the shell hardware is strong, durable and extremely well-designed.
This fine Oak kit is just as beautiful to look at as it is to listen to. It possesses a stunning grain that is beautifully complemented by an Emerald Shadow finish and will definitely leave an indelible impression on an audience.
