Default Yamaha Stage Custom Birch / Paiste 2oo2

I play a Yamaha Stage Custom Birch 5pc. fusion sized drum kit in Dark Silver Metallic. All hardware with the exception of the kick pedal and throne are medium weight, single braced Yamaha. The kick pedal is a DW 9000. Throne is a Pork Pie round throne. Drum sizes:
20x17 Kick
14x5.5 Snare
10x8, 12x9 Mounted Toms
14x14 Floor Tom

Current drum heads are all Evans with the exception of the kick reso. Emad2 / Stock on the kick. Coated G1 / Hazy 300 on the snare. Clear G2 / G1 on the toms.

My cymbals are Paiste 2oo2 series and include:
14" Sound Edge Hats
20" Ride
18" Crash
16" Crash
10" Splash

Here is a video of my drum kit unboxing.

I like the way my splash compliments my crashes. You may want to hit a bunch. Lots of nice splashes out there.

Thank you. I bought a clamp mount before figuring this out. Oh well, never hurts to have an extra clamp lying around.

Thank you and thanks for watching the unboxing. That was a fun day! When I chose my drum color I had playing in church in mind. I didn't want anything that draws too much attention. I also like this as a car color too.

I believe the PST 5 line is an excellent cymbal for their price point. They are a CuSn8 bronze cymbal, not brass like the PST 3 line of cymbals.

I will say I added a 2oo2 to the line up and quickly wanted to upgrade them, but still I still like 'em.

The drums and 2002's look great. However, I just pulled a groin muscle trying to get my feet on the bass/hi hat pedals. It may feel good to you, but ouch. Try moving the racks toms a little to the right, close the gap between them and the ride cymbal, then move the hihats to the right also. The hats will now be more in front of you and much easier to play then having them sideways. Just food for thought.

I would like to move the rack toms to the right, but that would mean raising them up and then they would be too high for me (I would rather not angle them any more). I am thinking about swapping positions of the 10" and 12" toms because the 10" isn't as deep and it would give me a little room to slide over. What I don't want is tom rash on the kick drum from having it hover too close.

The distance between the two pedals does feels comfortable because my center is not on the kick drum, but rather between the two rack toms. I tried to create a triangle with two sides being the pedals and the drum throne being a point. I'll try to show you what I mean in this pic. Although comparing the two pics my set-up in the original post do have the pedals a tad further apart than normal. Thank you for the food for thought, I am always looking to tweak for improvements.

Definitely do not move anything if it may cause the rubbing of drums. That would be worse than a groin pull for sure.

My University Music Society just bought a set of stage customs. Really great set. I also own a Musashi, so I've played a kit very, very similar. I was mightily impressed to say the least.

I agree. I think the SCB and Musashi snare are great at their price point. Thank you for your input.

Thank you. That throne was a good investment for me. It's heavy and solid. The seat is very comfortable and the fabric holds me in place with no sliding around.

I like the head on the FT but for me it's too much control for rack toms especially my 10".

Nice set you got there....just woundering why a 20x17? Not 20x18 or 20x16?

How does it sound? Nice punch?

Hey thanks. The Stage Custom Birch is a production kit, you cannot get custom sizes. The 20" kick is only offered with a 17" depth. It does sound good. I'm using a clear Evans EMAD with an EMAD reso, plastic beater with nothing internal.

I see....you kindda missed my point.....anyways that's quite a rare bass drum...usually it's either 16 or 18 xD

So basically it's no difference right? Compared to a 20x18?

I don't think he missed your point. Yamaha only makes that model in the 17" depth. Only Yamaha knows why, but evidently it sounds good!

When it was time for replacements I wanted to try something new. I'm currently using G1 / G1 combination. Sorry no sound clips.

Clean set up, brother. Looks great. I've found that the EC2 really sounds nice on my 16 ft. I wish I had a 10" EC2 laying around so I could give it a whirl on my small rack. I really like the sound of the coated G2 on my 14 floor.

Nice kit, I think I checked out your your tube vid of the kit. I've been after a Musashi snare for a while and your video (at least I think it was you) was one of the results.

beautiful kit.

i noticed you have a kick port on your bass drum. I've heard mixed reviews on them, but am curious about trying one on a smaller sized kick. what effects did you notice on your bass drum sound by using a kick port?

thanks!

i'm also sorry to hear the SC is going storage, what kit are you getting next??

cheers
