Good enough for him, good enough for me. Probably why I'm constantly drooling over his cymbal lines. ;)
I'm curious to see what happens when Yamaha reveals the new lines from their China plant at NAMM. I can only guess they will offer a maple version of the Live Custom and maybe a birch version? Not sure. I'm curious, even though I don't see a reason to go from my current oak setup to any other wood.
