“ Brand: Yamaha / Drums & Percussion Type: Drum „
The Yamaha Tour Custom is an amazing piece of kit the sound that this drum creates is purely staggering. All Yamaha wood drums have one thing in common-Yamaha's craftsmen create every drum shell using their exclusive staggered diagonal seam, Air Seal System just as they have since 1967. Each two or three-ply master ply is cut to length to very precise tolerance with a diagonal cut on each end. The diagonal seam in the drum shell will not separate, eliminating the need to fill gaps in the bearing edge with filler putty. These plies have glue applied and are then put into the mold by hand, one master play at a time. The craftsman then inserts an air bag into the mold and inflates it, clamping the shell with even pressure 360 degrees around. This process creates a shell that is strong, starts round, and stays round for many years.
Using this process it has a perfect circle and it will retain this circle for many years to come. Making drums this precisely means that they don't come cheap. You can get it from Andertons for $1299.99. But in the long run if you have that kind of money loose then this is the drum kit you want. Also it comes with an optional complete cymbol kit which will cost you just over $150 at most shops.
On the whole this is a really high quality drum kit and anyone who has been playing drums for a while and wants a new Higher quality kit then this is the right thing for you.
