Default 20th Anniversary Recording Customs

I bought the shell kit after Steve Gadd played them at his Dallas clinic back in 96 I think.
10,12,14,16,22
Tried for years to find another matching kick but finally had to settle for a blue one. i still am seeking matching pieces though, what I would give for an 8" tom!
Snare is a Tama Bill Bruford Signature.
It is a work in progress but I love them as they are...enjoy.

I'm not a fan of purple but that finish is amazing. Even with the mismatched kick.

It was blessed by Gadd. Interesting cymbal choices if I may say. Every time I see a beautiful recording custom or oak custom kit, especially double bass with iron cobra pedals its a drum set I could dream about.

I really love your setup,the color is amazing. I just don't understand you've got a blue kick with it. It doesn't look good at all I think, like you've reduced a great kit to some Frankenstein thing.

It's not that bad! It's not as if one is a green sparkle or anything, they're the same type of finish and shade just a slightly different hue.

I really love the kit, very interesting choice of cymbals, i can definetly see what you're going for having the Z custom as a crash ride and using lighter cymbals with faster decay for crashes. That's pretty amazing that the drums were played by Steve Gadd!

Awesome colour! Pity about the 2nd kick but I think it still looks great, even more unique.

Nice set of cymbals too

Yamaha will color match any finish, discontinued or currently still being used, TT-908Y, would be the 8" rack tom #. Beautiful kit. I had a set of RC's in the tobacco sunburst.

I recently spoke with Yamaha drums about making me some matching shells, they were unwilling to do so. Apparantly there is a wrap maker on Ghostnote.com who i have been told to contact. They say he can match the finish exactly. From what I have read they made 500 sets of these in 4 and 5 piece configurations and some with legged floor toms. I believe the purple to be the rarest. I have seen red, blue, and tobacco burst.

Also the ride is indeed a 22' HH rock ride same as Portnoys not that he is my hero I just like the way that ride sounds miced.

The other cymbals are:
Zildjian 16 med crash
Zildjian 17 med crash
Zildjian 18 A custom crash
Zildjian 18 Z custom rock crash
Zildjian 12 Acustom splash
Zildjian 8 A custom splash
Zildjian 8 avedis splash
Zildjian 18 china boy high
Zildjian 14 A custom Mastersound hi-hats
Sabian 13 cant remember? hi-hats
Sabian 22 HH Rock ride

The unicorn of hi-hats. Very rare and special. Few have played them but even fewer have lived to tell the tale.....

That is one beautiful kit. I have a brand new RC in Cherry Wood. It sounds huge! Where do you get the plate for covering up the tom mount hole in the bass drum? I could make some at work but they wouldn't have the Yamaha logo

I agree the kit looks mighty FINE....that blue bassdrum in no way distracts from the beauty of the kit or your setup. I say do not touch it. Cheers.

Maybe you can find a bass drum one size smaller or larger for variety.
