Default Yamaha Maple Custom 30th Anniversary Kit

Hello. It's been a while, and at least 4 kits since I've last posted. :)
Here's my latest:




Yamaha Maple Custom 30th Anniversary Kit (1998) - Green Sparkle
10x9
12x10
14x12
16x14
22x18
Ludwig COB 6.5x14 w/ brass diecast & tube lugs

My thoughts:
About 10 years ago, I had a custom Pork Pie Maple kit that sounded AMAZING. This kit sounds almost identical. I think it's the 7 ply shells that is so appealing to me. I much prefer the sound to my old DW exotic.
Anyway, it's totally killer.

Stunning drums! The Yammie Maple Custom is the best maple kit on the market as far as I'm concerned followed by luddie classics in a close second.

Hateplow, I envy you. Green Yamahas... do you keep your house unlocked at night? (j/k) Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

Thanks for the pointer, Harry.. This ones a beaut. ( I love fried green onions...really ) . Boy, they wimped out on the clasp on lugs, eh? I guess bad press can kill you no matter what the truth is...


Agree with the OP in his preference of these over the DW EXOTICS. To my ear MCANS sing and Dubs thud.

Hi Hateplow,

I am brand new on the drummerworld.com site and think that it's great! Also, I know that your post was from 2011, but I see that your kit is a Yamaha 30th Anniversary MC Green Sparkle. I just listed a new old stock Yamaha 30th Anniversary MC Green Sparkle 22x18 bass drum that you may be interested in. It's for sale at $750 and would make a great second drum for a double kick green sparkle kit! I can include the Yamaha double tom mount arm and a nice black padded zip gig bag too. Let me know if you are interested! I am in the Albany, NY Capital District region. Cheers!

-Karl

Hi there,

Would you perhaps be interested in adding another YAMAHA 30th Anniversary MC Green Sparkle 22x18 bass drum to your kit? I have a new old stock orphaned drum that is dead mint except for some tarnish on a couple of the lugs, that's all! I am selling it for $750 and it would make your set a double kick set! I am in Scotia, NY. E-mail me at: Berner.karl@yahoo.com if you are interested! Cheers!

-Karl

I have a Yamaha MC 30th Anniversary Red Sparkle 5pc , minus snare.
Trying to sell them without jumping through hoops on eBay. Anyone got any ideas? They're in excellent condition.

Well you could put an ad in the Classified section on this forum, or try Craigslist in your neighborhood.
