Oh man, I want that snare! The whole kit is so obviously nice that I almost feel stupid saying it....but it's rude not to, so that is a damn nice kit!

You have an oak kit too right, how do the two compare side by side?

that is so beautiful!!! Great fade, would have such a finish (if I decided for a Stage Custom Advantage), too. I really like the Yamahas, not just because of the sound or look, I also like that those Maple Customs aren`t too expencive!

Hi, Cheen. I sold my Oak Custom kit and purchased the MCA's. The oak sound, to my ear, was open and full of overtones. In fact, I had trouble 'controlling' the overtones and could not find the low end, especially in the toms. I was able to dial in the 14x14 floor tom, though. The oak bass had plenty of punch.

The MCA's, as you likely already have found, are warm, focused, and easy to tune. I find the MCA's to be very versatile; you can tune them high or low and get a great note either way. I do not have any problem with overtones with my MCA. I guess that's the big difference, to me. I heard a live performance last night and the drummer played a set of MCA's in black sparkle fade (beautiful kit, by the way). The sound was superb.

Thanks, Yamaha Drummer. Yes, the Maple Custom snare is something I love. The sound is very rich and thick, almost like a 7x14 snare. I am very pleased with the craftmanship and tone of my MCA kit. Thanks, again.

If you see a small silver coloured Ford with a few dents speeding away very quickly from your house and your kit is missing. You'll know who took it.

Those are such beautiful drums. Very classy finish and I'm sure they sound great.

By the way, what does your name (golions) refer to? Is it a sports team you support? I ask because I support a local rugby team called the Lions and Go Lions is a bit of a war cry for us.

Great kit!!

The A Custom 17" Fast Crash is one of my favourite cymbals of all time. I also have the K Custom dark crashes, in 15" and 18". I hope you like yours as much as I do mine.

Thanks for the compliments on my kit, katman. I'm very happy with the finish and sound. The name golions is in reference to the Penn State Nittany Lions. I went to grad school at PSU.

Default My Yamaha MCA Update

I recently added a 10x13 tom to my MCA kit. G2 coated over G1 clear. I'm getting great low-end out of this tom.

Stunning kit my friend...stunning!

Really liking the cymbal selection. A good mix you have there. And I must say I have fallen in love with my 15" A Fast Crash...good too see others using them.

Great cymbals and drumset awesome! However I'm not much of a fan of the 8" tom, I would have left it alone.

Thanks for the kind comments. A few responses:

Maytridy: You are welcome to play it anytime you are in south central Pa.
fusssion: I'll work on the first two points; you are welcome anytime to complete the third.
tama: Thanks, man, for the kind words.
murph: Joepa is healing up. Quite a hit the old bird took. Thanks for the compliments.
Titan: I, too, love my 15" fast crash. It's so bright and full of cut.
emmerson: Well said.

Yes! NOW THATS A FINISH! thats more like what i was hoping for , but i was getting a good deal on the embossed silver. Im growing to like it , and they sound great so i'm happy. Love the way you've set up your drums. the toms are nice and low and at good angles. The cymbals are awesome too! Bet the g2s over g1s work real well. I tried the Ec2 over g1s for the 8,10, and 12, which seems to work a little nicer for me. How do you like your new 8? I love the sound i get from mine.

Enjoy your awesome kit!

Thank you, Aydee. I do appreciate the kind words. Each time I get behind my kit I am so amazed at how good these drums sound. I'm sure everyone feels that way about their own kit.... You will appreciate this: we played a retreat a couple of weeks ago and our MCA's absolutely stole the show. Only the bass and snare were mic'd ... Anyway, thank you for the compliment. It's always nice to have one's kit appreciated by a fellow drummer. Play well, my friend. Chris

It is a gorgeous kit! Never put the "Golions" together with PSU until I saw the Harrisburg location...duh!

Have a daughter living in Elizabethville, teaching in Halifax.
