Yamaha Drums Announces New Stage Custom Birch Drum Set
(Yamaha | Posted 2008-04-13)
Yamaha Drums will introduce a Stage Custom Birch kit at Winter NAMM 2008. Perfect for students, houses of worship and gigging drummers, the 100 percent birch shells offer a cutting low-end, while eight new gorgeous lacquer finishes provide sustain and great looks. Yamaha's first mid-priced Birch kit also comes with all-new, top-quality 700 series hardware.
"Following the success of the all-Maple Tour Custom set, we developed the Stage Custom Birch to put an all-Birch, lacquer-finished Yamaha kit within reach of almost anyone," said Jim Haler, product manager, Yamaha Drums, Pro Audio & Combo Division.
The drum sets feature three unique configurations, including a five-piece with a 20-in. bass drum, a five-piece with a 22-in. bass drum and a four-piece with a 24-in. bass drum. All toms are in "universal" size depths to provide the most projection and purest tone.
The Stage Custom Birch Drum Set is expected to ship in March 2008.
