Default Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute

Thought i'd post some pictures of my yammies, since there so few posts on yamaha drums i wanted to change that adding mine.

Specs are: Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute's 2009 with the absolute lugg not the claw hook.
Finish is Cherry Red Fade or something like that can't remember what they called it.

Size's: 10x8", 12x9", 14x13", 16x15" 22x18" -virgin kick.
Snares in the picture are: Tama Brass 14x6,5" dunno what year it is, And a Pearl #4142 steel snare chrome 14x5,5" or 5" with built-in muffler, mid 70's? what i belive is the model Steward Copeland based his signature tama snare on.

Cymbals: 14,17,18" crashes all Meinl Byzance thin and medium thin regulars. with the addition of the 8" splash. Ride in the picture A Custom 20", Hihat Paiste 2002 14".
Heads: All evans, snares are G1 & G2 on batter and 300 hazy on reso, Toms all ec2 clear on batter and resonance on reso :)
Kick Emad, with the stock yamaha ported.







Might have left something out. Any questions just ask =)

Beautiful set you've got there. Yamahas with virgin kick drums are just downright sexy. Do you have any recordings we could listen to? My school just got a brand new stage custom birch, which sounds gorgeous, so I'd love to hear your MCAs.

Sorry took me some time to record you a short clip, i'we been away on work and just haven't been able to get to it.

To do this two clips justice take it as they are a small demo of the drums, they are recored in a rather small room 7m x 4,5m x 2,40m.
Also the drums havent been properly tuned in awhile but perhaps thats a good thing. You all get the idea of how they sound in everyday use, not tuning em to perfection for a studio recording or similar.
So please listen to this in stereoheadphones or good speakers! not laptop speakers or similar =)

Equipment used: 2x Rode NT5(overhead), Shure sm57(snare), Beyerdynamic Opus88(Toms & Floor toms), Shure Beta52a(kick).
This was all wired in to a Presonus Firestudio Tube. And recorded on my Mac with Logic 9 pro.

Clip #1 has no effects what so ever to the take but some reverb on the snare and overheads.
Clip #2 has some reverb added to the toms. and the same settings on OH and snare as previous.


So please enjoy and have a listen to what the drums sound like, and I'm displaying sound not my chopps.
/cheers

They look and sound fantastic! I listened to both clips, and you really don't need any reverb on the toms. They have such nice sustain without any help. I'm not a huge fan of the ec2 heads (had a bad experience with them on a set of DW's), but they sound excellent on those Yammies! Nice job playing and mixing too!

Those drums sound unbelievable! I would really like to see some pictures with a little more light in them. I can't really see the finish.
