For a slight upgrade, you could get the Yamaha Stage Custom with the 20” bass drum for $679. It comes with 10/12/14 toms and even a matching snare drum. 18” bass drums are too small for me and lack that low-end thud you may need occasionally. Birch or maple isn’t that big a deal to me - if you can play it won’t matter. But the $679 for slightly more makes better economic sense because it can do more than just polite Jazz.
