Yamaha Drums introduces the Club Custom drum sets at Winter NAMM 2011, a set that combines classic and modern qualities. This new series, which features a stunning painted lacquer finish that allows the shells to vibrate, mixes a classic vintage-era tone with today's finest craftsmanship. The kits project well in live performance situations, cutting through amplified instruments, and their warm tone and fast decay provide enhanced articulation.
Club Custom kits feature Kapur shells, an exotic tone wood exclusive to Yamaha, first used on the flagship PHX drum set. The painting technique, also exclusive to Yamaha, helps create finishes never before seen in lacquer.
Shells are 20" Bass Drum, 12" Tom Tom, 14" Floor Tom, 14" Snare Drum.
