Yamaha has introduced the Tour Custom Maple drum set (MSRP $2,320 with tom holder), designed for working drummers in need of a versatile kit that is suitable for both recording and live playing. The series features five new satin finishes: Butterscotch Satin, Caramel Satin, Candy Apple Red Satin, Chocolate Satin, and Black Licorice Satin.
Currently celebrating its 50th anniversary of drum manufacturing, Yamaha designed this series with attractive features that emphasize an organic sound and look, combined with the durability that drummers look for.
The Tour Custom Maple drum sets are constructed with 100-percent maple 6-ply shells using the company’s proprietary staggered diagonal seam shell construction, building a thin drum shell that will start round and stay round. Other features include 2.3mm vintage inverted Dyna Hoops that help focus the sound and keep the drums in tune longer, solid and durable hardware including one-point lug attachments on all shells to enhance the drum’s sustain, and Remo US heads.
Yamaha Tour Custom Maple drum sets will ship in September 2017.
