I just ordered the Yamaha birch Stage Custom "Be Bop" kit in Cranberry Red finish from Guitar Center in Las Vegas. The sales crew in the drum department were extremely helpful in getting my new kit dialed in. After tweaking and tuning the new Be Bop kit went into the studio for its first ever session...WOW, did this kit ever sing and dance! Crisp response from the toms and lots of pop from the snare...despite the 18" smaller size kick drum the response was big and fat! This new kit is easy to set up, easy to tune and easy to mic up. It was a total pleasure and joy doing my recording session on this kit. A perfect compliment to my selection of K Zildjians. Don't let the low price fool you into thinking this is a beginner level set...it's a top flight professional kit with fabulous birch shells that gave me all the punch and bottom end attack rivaling the sound of shells five times the cost. I'm totally sold on this amazing kit....pro drums at entry level prices. The Cranberry Red finish looks absolutely beautiful...even the studio engineer remarked on how cool my drums looked. Get 'em....you can't go wrong and you won't be sorry.
I wanted a smaller kit for quieter/smaller venues and after comparing several similarly sized kit in this price range, I decided on the Yamaha kit. This kit does not come with a snare which was actually a selling point for me since I have other snares that I like; I'd rather spend the money on quality than on a drum I may not even use. The natural finish looks flawless and the kit tunes up easily and sounds great with the stock heads. All the drums have 6 lugs on the batter and resonant sides(including the kick). Felt strips give the kick just enough muffling to help it's versatility and produces a very punchy tone. The toms are actually louder than I anticipated and really project well. I normally play with 2-ply heads (G2s, EC2s)on toms, but given the nature of this kit and its intended usage, the single ply coated heads seem appropriate.This kit mics up well if needed and can be used in a wide variety of playing situations. It can tune up high and open for jazz but sounds equally as good tuned a bit lower. If you're looking for a small, easily portable gigging kit, seriously consider this one.
