Lovely, I like your cymbal setup too! I once had a Tour Custom kit and it was fabulous. I hope they have done as good job with this new maple model!

Can you tell me what's the serial number for these drums. I mean, the old Tour Customs were 8000-series but now I think the Oak Customs are 8000 series.
Thanks.

You know honestly I really like them...I'm really into a deep punch in my toms, and have gone with the EC2's on my previous kits as well...I have them tuned about two notes above the wrinkle on each right now with Genera G1 clears on the reso, and they sing!!! I did have to add some moongel though because of the acoustics in the room, but all in al I couldn't be happier :D

Please forgive me if I have the wrong number, but on the badging for one of the toms reads T8100 QMX1091...So I guess they're still an 8000 series kit...Hope that's the right number you needed :D

And thanks for the kind words!!! It took a while of saving up, but I'm loving my cymbals, they match this kit beautifully :D

I'll try and get something done ASAP...My only drawback is that I would have to rely on the not so great acoustics in the small room and an onboard camcorder mic messing with the overall sound...I can definitely give it a try though :D

Thanks!

Yes, they seem to be 8000 series by the model number. The serial number shows that they were manufactured in October of 2006.

Q=00
M=6
X=10

So... QMX = (2)006 / 10

Way to go, Dan. The Tour Customs are a fine set of drums. Great build by Yamaha. I've got to believe that these kits will be very popular; I found their tone to be warm and a bit open. I bet the EC2's focused the sound pretty well? You've got a great kit. Congratulations.

Thanks a lot much apreciated!!!

Absolutely, the EC2's gave them a nice deep tone, and by removing the moongels I have in the pics and replacing the stock reso heads with Genera G1 Clears eliminated all of the unwanted ring...A couple of people advised against the EC2's saying that they would choke these drums, but I haven't heard that happening at all :D

Thanks for the kind words!!! I can honestly say I have my dream cymbal setup right now (heh until Sabian puts out something new I need to spend money on ;) )...Honestly though, it took a lot of saving and I'm still paying for two of them if you know what I mean *LOL*

YES!!! Awesome kit man. I'm very familiar with the Tour Customs and know that you bought an amazing kit. I'm surprised that you like the EC2's though...

Beautiful kit, same finish as mine! Well wear to it! Let me know if you get a recording up, I'd like to hear the sound you get from those heads.
