Re: Is this a good deal?

The first pic in that post is not the drum kit for sale. That pic is a Yamaha graphic and shows a newer Stage Custom. The rest of the pics show an older kit. If it was me buying a kit, I'd buy one of...

Re: Recording Customs?

Those are a custom ordered one-off. They are finished in Apple Sparkle Fade, which was an Absolute finish. They are basically a Birch Custom Absolute with RC lugs and badges, so can't be compared to...

Re: Recording Customs?

Generally, I would agree. Lacquered exterior with clear interior points to Stage Custom. However, the badges would be different than OP is saying. In the early 80's, when Yamaha used those beige...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

Right, they weren't (aren't) made by Sakae. I guess I should have been more specific to say 'the Sakae lines are no longer made.'

Re: Recording Customs?

All of the RC kits had stained interiors. If the kit was a solid maroon finish with a clear interior, the kit was a Recording Standard as I mentioned in a previous post. And, the finish would be a...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

The Oak Customs (along with all of the other Japanese made lines) are no longer being made, since Yamaha pulled out of Japan over a year ago. The current Oak offering is the Live Custom, which is...

Re: question to all drummers

You are probably the only member here who has never played acoustic drums. You are concerning yourself about nothing. Get the kit and start experimenting with it. You don't need to buy all the sound...

Re: question to all drummers

Fear of drums? Wow. I don't think I've seen a question like this posed before!

First of all, good choice of drums. Yamaha kit with a black beauty snare will serve you fine. 2nd, the player is in...

Re: Recording Customs?

If the shell interiors were not stained, they are not RC's. Yamaha did make a line back in the 80's called Recording Standard. They were the same shells as RC, but the interiors weren't stained and...

Re: Recording Customs?

What did the badges look like and what did the lugs look like? Both RC and Stage series mostly had the stretch lugs. The badges you are describing actually sound more like RC. They would be about 1"...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Hey Neal, 'bout time you got this kit :) Congrats, they look beautiful! Good decision to leave the floor tom and kick alone if you are happy with them. Enjoy, and good luck with them.

Re: When did Yamaha stop inside-coating the BCA shells ?

Only the very early BCA's had stained interiors - it wasn't the entire first generation. Here's a first gen kit in Sea Blue. You can see the 10" tom has a clear interior.

Re: Yamaha Drums

+1, the kit looks great under the lights.

Neal, awesome that you got the seamless copper! I have the 5.5 and also had the piccolo but sold it. Love the 5.5 but the piccolo just didn't sound...

Re: What's next, some help please

I agree with the others. No need to upgrade the kit right now. Getting her a better pedal, hi hat stand, throne and replacing any funky hardware is the way to go. Don't necessarily buy the heaviest...

Re: Options under a thousand?

Those are good options and the Oak Customs are great drums. They represent a nice value for buyers, and the quality is top notch.

Drumbum: If you've heard the Oaks and liked them, don't hesitate...

Re: Help with color choice

In general, this is correct. Poly is a clear top coat finish. It won't stain the shell at all. There are some finishes that combine stain and poly in a 1 step product.

Tmac - if you have applied...

Re: Help with color choice

Are these currently wrapped? If they are Luan, I'm afraid they will not be such a great candidate for re-finishing. If the wrap is glued at all, the thin Luan outer ply will probably splinter as the...

Re: Decisions decisions??

I love Oak Customs, and Yamaha in general, so I'm a bit partial. And, in my opinion, the Oaks are a very nice value (if you are a buyer). For sellers, I don't think the going prices are a fair...

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

If you want a snare that cuts for $200 or less, I would definitely consider an Acrolite. Others that also have been suggested would serve you well are the Supra, Pork Pie Big Black and the Pearl...

Re: Yamaha Drums

There is no way that pic is of the kit you are describing. I blew it up using 'Paint.' The tom dimensions of the kit in the pic aren't 9x10 and 10x12, no way. And yes, if its early 1st gen BCA the...

Re: looking for new metal snare.

All of the Ludwig suggestions are worthwhile drums. If you are looking at $2-$300, then bronze is out, unless you luck into a nice used drum. I bought a bronze 5" Supra for $250 on eBay, but new,...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Welcome to the club!



Very hard to find a 14x14 in the Oaks, but keep your eyes open. You never know when one may pop up for sale.



Hey Neal, congrats on the Cherrywood kit. I agree the...

Re: Yamaha Drum Vault Help

There's really not a whole lot to identify. Do you have pics? What's the finish? If it has gold glue on badges and triple flanged hoops, its first generation MCA. If it has silver badges that are...

Re: worth it?

He sold his kit, so he has nothing to play. He won't have the patience to wait and save some bucks. He said 'its like a Candy Store' looking at all of the entry level kits.
