Yup. basic shell pack of the 11 ply hybrid shells will run you over $3000..

Ndugu Chancellor is playing them in MD Fest 2008' if you want to her what they sound like.

I like big, fat, hunk of metal pedals.

But now that I look at it, it doesn't look cheap

the yamaha display just seems a little underwhelming, the green kit looks awful, the white kit does'nt catch the eye and the PHX pictured last is very nice, but... this is NAMM - you need show up and wow them!
and i agree, the pedal does look cheap - and narrow where you get the most speed out of it...

Yamaha`s drums and designs are classy, innovative and look great.
This green sparkle absolute kit looks so stunning, this finish is awesome in my opinion...just like their other finishes, especially the sparkle finishes.

The don`t really like the new YESS system though. It`s not really new, I`d have expected a system which does not use any drillings on the shell at all.

Overall I`m pretty excited!

Karl

Exactly. The YESS is a great idea and perhaps the best flexible mounting system, but Yamaha needs to figure out a better way to use it than creating more drilling points on the drum shell.
