Yay! Green! For whatever reason Yamaha didn't seem to have any green finishes in the '09 catalog... That green/black fade is pretty much what I was hoping/praying for. Did you hear them? How did they sound?

love that finish on the kit... drool.

The turqouise fade PHX is absolutely stunning. Reminds me of the conway custom kit in one of the other threads on this forum.

I bet it would look top notch with some gold hardware too.

I had my heart set on perhaps buying a Maple Custom Absolute sometime in the future, but may have to adjust that plan :)

Music is Awesome

All of you wood guys how wood you guys rate Indonesian mahogany on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being African mahogany and 1 being Philippine mahogany. I ask this because the rock tour kit is made out of Indonesian mahogany.

What is the "SC" MusiQ? Also, notice they thickened both tom/kick up by a mm.
Stage Custom. But I miss read. It says 50 made world wide. Its a Recording Custom.

One of them with an outerply of CARBON!!!!

Mike can you get a closer pic of the information board and the centennial sets?

hahahahahaha, the music for the new Rock Tour website is EXACTLY what I expected the Japanese version of rock to sound like. xD

I noticed some pics of you playing the new top-end electronic kit (the 950?) - what did you think? Worth the hype?

Thanks for your noble sacrifice in putting yourself through all that torture (grin) - I bet it was rough...
