On stage or in studio, this kit delivers a fat, rich tone with awe-inspiring presence.

Using 1.2mm oak plies, the Yamaha Live Custom delivers a sound with greater strength and depth, provides rich expressive power that exceeds your imagination, and features drum hardware designed with some new, innovative ideas that delivers incredible stability and reliability even in the demanding environment of the stage. Bass drum shells are comprised of 8-ply (9.6mm) designs while tom, floor tom, and snare shells are constructed with six (7.2mm). Oak's sound is clear and well defined with a powerful low-end that shakes your soul.

The plies of these shells are 10% thicker than the plies used in the Oak Custom, the oak plies found in these shells deliver sound with greater power on stage. A dark silver hardware finish presents a powerful image further heightened with the all black shell interiors. Additionally, YESS mounts are designed to minimize contact between the shell and the mount to deliver a wider dynamic range and longer sustain.

The drum hardware features Yamaha's exclusive Absolute Lugs, which have a sophisticated, contoured design and add a touch of class to the shells. The Dyna Hoops are 2.3mm thick and offer a tight sound and sharper response. The kick drum are equipped with updated die-cast hooks, which provide noise-free function through the use of an insertion plate. An open-type floor tom bracket includes wing bolts. It's designed to clamp tightly on the leg without damaging it, to save time on stage, and to deliver optimum decay control.

Toms and floor toms are equipped with clear Remo Emperor heads, which are known for their deep sound and great durability. Snare drum, cymbals and hardware not included.

  • Yamaha Live Custom

    As reviewed by Bill on 5/5/2015

    I have played many sets in over 50 years of performing. I have never been more excited over a set than I am over the Yamaha Live Custom! How does Yamaha do it? All the descriptions of the set are true. It is a set you have to experience to really find out how impressive it is. The shells explode with resonance; the smaller size of the toms makes positioning the set more flexible; the finish is beautifully unique; upgraded hardware improves the stability and resonance of the set. I could go on, but you will have to play the Yamaha Live Custom to find out for yourself. Finally, I have to say, I prefer the Yamaha Live Custom to the Yamaha Recording Custom I played for 20 years. That is a huge statement about how I feel about Yamaha's newest set, the Yamaha Live Custom. THANK YOU YAMAHA!

  • This Kit Delivers!!!

    As reviewed by George on 4/25/2015

    I myself have owned 2 DW's, 1 Pearl Masters Birch, 3 Pacific Maple Kits, I Yamaha Absolute Custom Birch and currently a Ludwig Classic Maple. And I tell you, this Yamaha Oak Custom is up there with the Best of them. These Toms sing and they are loud!The guys in the Band noticed right away...Can't wait to use them Live...I'm not a fan of the Powerstroke 3 that comes with the head, but will use it until it's done. Then will go back to my Favorite Bass Drum Head Evans Emad Coated...the best Bass Drum head I have ever bought.

  • Yamaha Live Custom drumkit

    As reviewed by Louis on 3/30/2015

    I've many drumkits in my lifetime. 80's Gretsch, GMS', DW, Ludwigs, Tamas, the Yamaha absolute series, etc. But I must say, this is an absolutely(no pun) incredible kit! I based mine on David Garibaldi's Tom configuration of 10", 13" hanging Toms, and a 16" Floor Tom. I added an 8" hanging tom and a massive 18" Floor Tom for my left side! My Bass drum is 18" x 22". And a 14" snare. The finish is Black Shadow burst. I've compared my drums to Tama's best, DW's, Grestch, etc. No offense people, no problem! These drums are low, deep, punchy, sensitive, and powerful. Very satisfied. Maybe someday Yamaha will add a few more colors to the series. I'd love to have a Purple burst kit. Highly recommended.
