Overview

Yamaha's Air Seal System used for drum shell construction ensures each and every Yamaha drum shell is of uniform thickness and is perfectly round to achieve superior tone quality and durability.

Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20 inch Bass Drum:

I love this kit..the hardware is the best I have
used, I did change the heads to remo emperor for top heads (2 ply coated) for a great rock/blues sound. I have ordered the 16" dia. floor tom for a 6 pc. and may order the 13" tom to add another dimension to my sound. I got the natural wood and love it.

    Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20 inch Bass Drum:

    Ordered from website, snare drum came with a broken throw off and the box looked like it had been beaten around a bit. Would recommend buying in store or shipping to store and verifying nothing is broken.

    Otherwise, I love these drums, threw on a set of coated G2's and an EMAD and they sound wonderful. I look forward to many gigs with them.

        Yes but have it shipped to the store for inspection first

        Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20 inch Bass Drum:

        The bass drum shell was split all the way through the plies of wood from the bering edge about an inch or two into the shell in two places on the shell.
        It is curious as to how the packer didn't see the damage before boxing and shipping the item out from the factory.

        I live in a very remote area and it is convenient for me to buy online and have the merchandise delivered to my home as I am not near a Guitar Center.
        I called customer service and was advised to drive into the closest Guitar Center for the return and refund and/or exchange.
        This entailed a little over an hour drive to the store to have the purchase credited back to my credit card.

        My advice is if you are interested in purchasing these drums have them shipped to the store that way store employees can inspect the merchandise to see if it's in the proper condition.

          Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20 inch Bass Drum:

          Really like a 3.9 out of 5 assuming a 5 is a $3500 DW kit or a Recording Custom set. For the money, these are a 5. They look great, I mean for the money the finish is exceptional. I got the natural finish and it had me at 'hello' as they say. I replaced the tom heads with coated Evans heads and the Snare with a coated HD Dry by Evans. I've only had them a week so it's still early. I feel like the toms lose their tuning quickly and the snare has limited 'Sweet Spot'...I had to tune both the batter and reso heads up to about as high as they'd go to get the really wet, slappy sound out. Once I did, I was able to tune the batter head down a bit to find my favorite spot. I'd say, all in all, the snare is the most limited and I will replace it with a Ludwig Black Magic. I've never owned a birch kit before so I am still trying to find my favorite tuning but I do believe these drums sound great and they are well worth twice what I paid. I would highly recommend. Once I got the toms where I wanted them I was pretty amazed. The sizes I got with the kit were 20" kick, 10", 12" and 14" toms. I removed the 10" and have a traditional 4-piece setup. This suits my playing style better and I may remount the 10" and use a side-mount for the 12" to be a 'floor tom' style location with the 14" behind that, ala John Bonham without the gigantic sizes. I feel like the toms have a pretty versatile tuning range, with moongels for overtones, but they do have a pretty specific sweet spot.

            I bought this kit because it was affordable and I needed a kit that I could take out on small gigs. This kit fits the bill........it is not a loud kit but it has a nice well rounded sound that can be used for small clubs. I use it on rock gigs but it can fill the bill for jazz.

                The Yamaha Stage Custom Birch kit with the 20" bass in natural finish was my choice. I love the finish quality was superior in this kit t The bearing edges on the shells are properly milled and the wood in the shells is clean and clear of blemishes.

                The heads are of good quality but I did replace the toms heads with the remo pinstripe clear heads to thicken the tone. The snare i used a dw performace also i removed the hardware from the center of the floor toms
                The bass drum has a really big tone and the toms sing as well. The YESS hardware is excellent as always. Highly recommended.

                  Comments about Yamaha Stage Custom Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20 inch Bass Drum:

                  I have been playing drums for over 40 years in many types of venues from Concert (symphonic) to live performance (Jazz, Country, Rock, Blues, Big Band)

                  I have owned many types of drums over the years (Ludwig, Mapex, Pearl , Newport, Sonor, Yamaha), these were not the low end kits mind you but the better end of the manufacturers kits. I find my current Yamaha stage custom birch to be far superior to my old Ludwig Pro Beats of the 1970s. I like my Sonor Force 2007, however the Yamaha Stage Custom Birch have a more tone independent sound, drum to drum.

                  I have owned two sets of Yamaha stage custom drums, the initial 96 version and my current 2016 Birch version. I found both of them to be very durable drums when properly cared for. My first set was in great shape after 10-12 years of use, and is sill making music with its current owner. The hardware Yamaha uses is excellent and never chipped, faded, rusted or pitted over time.

                  The finish of my older stage customs never faded and looked as good the day I sold them as it did he day I purchased them, even with continual gigging about town. The Bass drum hoops never cracked or showed signs of color fade. After 12 years of gigging about town they were still in great shape.

                  My stage customs always held their tune even though In carted them about from gig to gig and to the studio. I'm no snowflake, when I mean these drums held up I mean they were in their cases in the back of the truck with the rest of the band gear. Loaded and unloaded and assembled and taken down with the rest of the bands gear (Of course I was my own roadie)

                  The hardware (tom holders and the like) never failed or broke or rusted etc. They always worked and looked great, even though they experienced moving about during gigging. I have heard complaints of the tom balls failing but I never experienced this issue with my tom mounts. they worked as well 12 years later as they did on day one.

                  My history with stage custom speaks for itself
