Default Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute Nouveau

It gives me great pleasure to introduce my Yammie...............

Unfortunately everything hasn't arrived as yet but i just had to share it with the drumming community. The kit consists of:

Drums:
Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute Nouveau:
10 x 09 Tom
08 x 08 Tom
12 x 10 Tom
14 x 14 Floor Tom
16 x 16 Floor Tom
22 x 18 Bass Drum
Snares:
14 x 07 Yamaha Brass Nouveau
12 x 05 Pork Pie Little Squealer

Cymbals:
Paiste Signature Series:
14" Sound Edge Hi-Hats
08" Splash
10" Splash
16" Fast Crash
18" Power Crash
12" Splash
18" Heavy China
21" Dark Full Ride (Currently Sabian 21" AA Rock Ride)
17" Full Crash

Yamaha Hardware


Awaiting the delivery of a couple of pieces of hardware and 2 cymbals before it's complete but i'm extremely stoked with what i've got.
Gotta save up a bit of $$ to fit it out with Evans heads but she already sounds unbelievable.

WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANY DRUMMER!!!!

Those are the exact sizes I have in MCANs.. Beauty! So how come the 8 is in the middle? Everyone has an interesting theory and I'd like to hear yours..? : )

Nice setup! Can't wait until the rest of your sigs arrive so you'll be totally Paistified. Definitely a kit to make my KILP list.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Youenjoy00..... Forgive my ignorance of internet abbreviations but what's a KILP???

Aydee..... i went for the 10 8 12 set up on the toms to just simply change the sounds on fills. Most people fill from L - R or R - L where then tones run ascending or descending. This way just changes it up a bit.
I'm also working playing tribalesque grooves riding the 8 and comping with the 10 on my L and the 12 on my R. Getting some really interesting grooves and sounds from this set up.

Cheers

Are you a fan of Jimmy Chamberlain? This looks a lot like his setup and mentality to change the typical ascend/descend rolls. I'm glad to see another satisfied Yamaha owner, but there's really no surprise there.

Hi drummer30,

I reckon Jimmy Chamberlain is a great drummer and even though i've got a Yamaha and a larger tom on the left much like his, there wasn't any influence when designing my set up.

Thanks dude.

A stunning kit no doubt!! I bet it sounds as good as it looks!! What color is it? I was trying to figure out if it was a fade or solid color. The way the pics were taken it looks like a fade, but it could be the flash. Great cymbal selection too. Top quality all the way!!

Welcome to the forum!!

It's like MILF for the drumkit... Kit I'd Like to Play...

You certainly have a beauty kit... I love birch drums... then again, I have a thing for Aydee's MCA"s too.. I haven't played the BCA's but would love to. See how they compare to the RC's. (enough abbreviations for you yet?)

Peace!

Beautiful kit, dusted drummer. Man, you gotta love Yamaha's craftmanship and their ability to produce fade finishes. That Cherry Black Fade is pure and flawless. I love it. Congratulations!
