We caught up with Yamaha Drums at NAMM 2019 to check out their new Live Custom Hybrid Oak drum set, which features an oak shell with a synthetic resin inner ply, available in five finishes that accentuate the grain. It’s also got weighted lugs inside the bass drum, aimed at accentuating the low-end frequencies. Also new from Yamaha, the FP9 series bass drum pedal is inspired by Yamaha racing motorcycles with polished aluminum footboard, black beater head with adjustable weights, available in chain-, strap-, and direct-drive options as a single or double pedal, all with spring tension adjustable on the fly.
