Wow, that set looks incredible! Super classy! I've wanted a set of my own RC's for a very long time. That 18 inch floor tom must sound like thunder, too.

My college has an old Recording custom but it's in such sad shape with worn out Clear Ambassadors and like an entire Hotel Laundry room in the bass. I would love to fix it up though.

Hi, I was wondering how you came up with your Serial Number?

For instance on your first tom what numbers are on the badge?

Probably TT908RA----????

Thanks!

Sold these awhile back to finance another deal-I had purchased these from a Yamah Endorser here in Toronto. Apple sparkle fade laquer with clear interiors and Yamaha aluminum diecast hoops.

Here's a few shots of my 1980's Recording Customs. I've been debating on getting them refinished in White Lacquer, but I heard it could effect the value of the kit. Just some of the drums have yellowed a bit more then others in the kit. The sizes of my kit are

2x 24x16 kicks
14x10 ride tom
16x16 floor tom
18x16 floor tom

I bought this kit used and cleaned it up. I completely stripped off all the hardware and polished it and the shells. I bought a few replacement pieces of hardware and completely recovered all drums with new Remo heads top and bottom. The two Yamaha logo reso heads on the front of my kicks are original 1980's Yamaha logo heads which where brand new setting in boxes in a drum shop in Memphis. I've owned Yamaha Beech Custom Absolutes before and thought those drums where awesome, well that is until I played these. This kit sounds so badass and it's very powerful. I don't foresee myself parting ways with this kit ever.

Fantastic eye candy first post. Welcome to Drummerworld. Holy Moly ... a shorter list would have been which RC sizes you don't have! What a collection. Definitely a size for every occasion.

Thanks! I really like my drums! I didn't pay that much for my drums, maybe 6000 usd. It consist of a number of drumsets, the first I bought in the early 90s and then I just happend to find more and more red drums. :)

I think it's cool to have two 26"x14" bass drums and I think they are pretty rare. They don't even have real serial number and I don't know why.

Sorry for my english, but I from Sweden. :)

Here's my Recording Custom kit. I absolutely love these drums. Black lacquer and crome look awesome together, whether it be on a Audi, a Lexus, Mercedez Benz, or a drum kit.

It's amazing that a 40 year old design can look so timeless and modern. These drums turn heads everywhere we play.

Am I the only one who finds the excessive lug hardware on recording customs unsightly? It also seems like all that metal would choke the sound of the drum. Don't get me wrong, I like Yamaha stuff. I just don't understand the reason behind slapping so much metal onto high-end wooden drums.

I love the RC lugs. The added chrome enhances the ultra high gloss black lacquer finish.

I guess it's good for recording? Haha, my Stage Customs from the late 90s have that same connected lug design (the one in my profile picture). I don't mind it.

Here are a few shots of my kit that I snapped this morning. I have Evans G2 Clear over Black Resonant. I highly recommend this combo, it sounds absolutely amazing!

Agreed.

It's a personal taste thing, but they remind me of a marching snare drum.

Also, with the current way drum companies are trying to "sell" the idea of minimizing shell contact to achieve maximum sustain and tone, having large lugs seems to directly contradict this idea.

Last night I saw a big band and the drummer had a RC custom kit in an aqua finish. The drums looked amazing but they sounded like wet cardboard boxes. I couldn't see what heads he was using and it also sounded like they were tuned waaaay too low.

BTW, I'm a Yammie man myself, I'm not knocking RC drums.
