  1. Yamaha 9000 , best recording kit I ever saw, played and
    heard and boy dis Mr Gadd make it sound good.

    Its the car equivalent of an 80s Merc S class.

  2. 9000.recording kit, I think it was called, best
    studio kit ever, like the drums equivalent of
    an 80s Merc S Class.
    Surely collectable by now ?

  3. Yamaha, a lot to chose from. But the “oak custom” just wow. Let’s just stay here and appreciate it. Amazing attack it’s perfect in everyway.

  4. Yamaha Maple Custom Hybrid 10 12 14 18 Pink Champagne
    Is in my opinion the best Yamaha drum kit. I believe this because as I do don’t play Yamaha kits I checked your website and copy and pasted the name of the most expensive drum kit. It’s also a cool colour which just confirms my theory. Thanks in advance…

    1. I’ve owned a recording kit and it was fab,in fact all the things people say about them is true.but I’m going to be faithfull to my own here.I think my birch custom absolute drums are even better.the aluminium die cast hoops and independant mounts make a difference to easy getting a good sound..they tune up straigh out of the box.the near field sound is good to no need for druM monitoring on smallgigs.all yamaha kits are quality so forced to make a decision I go for the birch custom the kit I’ve played for the last 8 years.

  5. In my opinion, the Yamaha Rock Tour Custom drunk it cannot be challenged. I may be a little biased on my taste when it comes to music and the sound of this set but surely names such as Nick Menza and Tommy Aldridge prove this kit was serious. In my opinion, the sound these drums make are up there with the best!

  6. My pick would be the maple absolute custom. I played one of these kits at beat herder festival on the main stage and the sound was incredible. It just seemed to resonate through the whole stage!

  7. The Yamaha stage custom is cracking value for money, a kit anybody can play and afford and will compete with the best! The snare, if tuned right, sounds AMAZING for the money!!!

  9. I would have have to agree with all the 9000 lovers.
    Versatile drums Live or in the studio.
    Just look at the who`s who of Top players to see why.
    Not sure about 80`s S class Merc`s though!
