Yamaha did it right when they came up with the Recording Customs. 30+ years now. Sweet kit. Aydee will be........we'll see, soon enough.

........right here! Harry knows me too well.

I thought you were a DW man.. I personally don't particularly like the sound of the DWs I've played.. ( If you think I'm just a Yammie zealot, I also happen to love Gresch Renowns, Pearl References, Sonor jungle.. ).

RCs are Yamaha's all-time greats, IMO. How do you rate them with your other kits. I'd love to know.

P.S. EDIT- sorry, its obviously PPs not DWs. I stand corrected

Nice kit man. I had a 9000 Rec series and they were great drums. Dude I think you have a serious problem ( too many drumkits ). Why don't you open your own drum shop. GM drums, Now that would be cool.

Build quality is great. The only thing I would change is the floor tom leg brackets....need a key to adjust legs. The RC is the king of the birch world. If your going to go birch, go RC. Even though the Pork Pies and the Yams really different animals, I give the tip of the hat to PP only because it truly is an a la cart company but Yamaha for a mass produced kit is at the top otherwise.

You must get a workout just moving these drums around. Since this is the same backdrop as the pork pie thread...

I have a climate controlled garage I keep the drums in, all in cases. These are the new kids so they are still in the house. Pork Pie will not be a gig virgin after this weekend, and the Yamaha kit has only done about 6 shows so far.

That looks like the set up I (you) had circa 1989. I think that one was white, though. Nice kit, Greg. Bastard.

The white one was a premier.
This one is a "tribute" to the black premier that was stolen out of the storage locker.
The 18" floor is the one that Adam had. I brought it back from Pasadena with me.

A Premier? I would have sworn it was a Yamaha. This was when I had the 3 car apartment on Orange Grove and Allen. Sorry, it was not white.....it was a light natural finish.

Nice kit to add to your small colection.

I'm making plans to buy a new kit in January, with so many kits to choose from I find myself changing my mind as to what to get almost daily. Just today I was thinking about my all time favorite kits and of coarse the great RC came to mind. I went to the Yamaha site to see if they still make them first, then I came to DrummerWorld thinking I would have to search for a thread with RC's and you have a new thread and (another) new kit.

Are they still the same as the good ol RC's or have there been changes?

I'm down to three
UNIX Bubinga
TAMA Bubinga
YAMAHA RC's

Did you order these, if so how long was the wait?

Not to highjack the thread but does anybody know how long the wait is for UNIX. (Frank?)

Good job gmrakich, nice addition to the family.
Mike

These were in stock and took one week to get.
They are made exactly the same way as they were 25 years ago but now the interiors are finished in black satin stain. Finish still done in Yamaha piano factory.

Yamaha knows a good thing when they build it. They never significantly messed with success.

I think that these may be the longest running series of drums made, reletively unchanged.

These drums feel at home in black, but I like the cherry as well.

Classics, to be sure.
