Show off your Yamahas!
 
Inspired by the Drum Workshop-thread, I would like all you yammie-owners to put up some pics of your drums.

I've seen a lot of beautiful yamaha drums in here - but maybe we could gather some of the pictures en this thread?

I'll start by showing you a few pictures that you maybe have seen before in here.


This is a Manu Katché Junior kit that I used to own:

This is my current kit - a yamaha birch custom absolute

Here's two of the best pics of my kit. It's an older setup (missing the double pedal, x-hats, new snare, etc.) but probably the best pics to date that I've taken. Very nice to see a Yamaha thread.

Specs are:

Oak Custom in Bryce Canyon Brown
18x20
12x9
14x14

and the snare is a 13x3 steel Pearl Piccolo. I've replaced that recently with a 12x7 cherry/maple Black Panther

This thread got me to thinking again, (after Aydees Yammie thread), and I went looking around and found these...

My Beech Customs (mid 90's):

Attachment 16448

And here I am in the 80's.. (no laughing please). This was my very first Yammie kit.. I think they were a 600 series, but I used Recording Custom snares..

Peace!

I dig your set-up man, very meticulous.

Hey Yammie owners,
I'm in the market for a new kit, and i'm kind of up in the air about starclassics, masters, or absolute maples. Just wondering what the perks are of buying yamaha for you guys...

My-ex Beech custom absolute, the band i had collapsed and i was so fed up with disappointment that i sold the shell kit to a friend far away. The Beech made the kit very responsive and punchy, with a lower tone than maple. But i thought the 10,12,16 sizes didn't match too well, the floor tom was particularly hard to tune. But i would die to have that 24inch Bass drum again!!

That's true, If I wasn't so cheap (no offence to myself) I'de gladly go out and buy a YMCA (lol! Yamaha maple custom absolute)

Re: Show off your Yamahas!
 
Dude, buy one used on eBay. I got my three piece Oak Custom for $815 (with shipping!)
I mean, you need to be careful about who you buy from, but if you find just the right deal, you can have a great Yamaha kit for a small price!

Here are my Stage Customs that I've had for almost 10yrs, with mostly Sabian AAX, which seems to be a common combo looking at other Yammies on this thread. Why do Yamahas and AAX go so well together..?

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/t...d/P1010005.jpg

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/t...d/P1010004.jpg

Ludwig snare, with brand new retrofitted Trick throw-off (thanks Mike!)
Stage Custom rock kit (13', 14', 16' and 22' kick)
Iron Cobra double pedal
Sabian AAX (hats, 2 crashes and ride)
Sabian Pro-Sonix 10' splash, 18' china
Zildjian EFX Piggyback china
Istanbul Agop 8' splash

Have just bought an 8' AAX splash to replace the Pro Sonix as well as 8 and 10 inch original Remo rototoms. Don't know where I'll put them, any suggestions? I'll stick updated pics on when I've decided!

Awesome kit man. Reminds me a lot of my first set. I had coated emperors on mine.
