Re: New Yamaha Live Custom Oak Set - Video and Initial Thoughts...
Those Oak Customs are surely nice drums. A Guitar Center employee tried to talk me into buying some a few years back but I wouldn't listen to him and bought some old ratty 7000 series drums instead (advertised as RC's). Got hosed on that deal but ultimately came out okay in the end. Paid $699, sold them for $450 to a guy who was looking for 'em. They didn't SOUND bad, but for $100 more at that time those Oaks would have smoked the 7000s.
And no, don't sell the Reference set. Those Pearls are sweet.
