Default Yamaha Recording Custom Owners?

hey, i'd like to hear from anyone who owns or has owned a Yamaha RC. I'm thinking about getting one soon because i like the attack and bottom end of birch and i've heard that the RC is probably the best birch kit out there. I have some live recordings of them and really like the sound, but ive never heard them in person. I'd like to know how much sustain they have, and whether or not they "sing", as opposed to just being a short thud sound. I want a kit with good bottom end and attack but also with good tone and sustain. I'm really drawn to the Yammie RC's because they're a classic and have been around forever and not just some passing fad. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Great kits. Head selection will alter characteristics of attack, decay, sustain or "ring". These shells adapt extremely well to different head combos. They will produce whatever you want sound wise with the right heads.

Agreed. Beautiful drums. Very versatile. You want drums that sing. Ambassador batters. You want "the opposite", throw on some Pinstripes. 30+ years in production, longest produced factory series there is.
