To celebrate their 40th anniversary of handcrafting some of the world's finest drum sets, Yamaha Drums have poured its considerable expertise and artistry into this Temple Silver 5-Piece Drum Shell Pack. It commemorates the Temple of the Silver Pavilion, located in Kyoto, Japan.
It conforms to the original specifications of the famous Recording Custom Drum Set, introduced by Yamaha in 1976 and considered to be the most recorded drum set in history.
Its Hokkaido drum shells are 100 percent birch from northern Japan and produce deep fundamental and low-end punch that is ideal for recording.
It uses the YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System). The tom has a mount attached to the shell at the nodal point by two bolts. This system allows the drum shell to vibrate freely for maximum sustain without restricting with where the placement of the drums. The floor tom brackets are small, minimal contact mounts that are located at the nodal point. They hold the legs securely in place without restricting the vibration of the shell.
Yamaha's Silver Temple finish is hand-buffed to a lustrous sheen, and the lug casings are anodized black. It features precision-machined hi-tension lugs, which provide noise-free control due to their springless casing design. Manufactured as genuine one-piece units, Yamaha's high-tension lugs have established one of the principal trends in modern drum design.
The bearing edges are cut at sixty degrees with a round profile, which gives the drum heads more surface contact with the drum shells, enhances their low fundamental and provides a deep, warm tone with a punchy attack.
"The 7-ply bass drum and the 6-ply toms on these kits emit what can be described as a naturally EQ'd sound that is ideal for the studio," said Jewell. "Like the Recording Custom, they provide a perfect balance of attack, sustain and tonal spectrum."
