Yamaha Tour Custom Maple Drum Set Suits Modern
Working Drummers with Durability and Organic Sound
NASHVILLE (July 13, 2017) — Yamaha today introduced the Tour Custom Maple drum set, designed for today’s actively working drummer looking for a versatile kit suitable for both recording and live playing.
Currently celebrating its 50th anniversary of drum manufacturing, Yamaha, designed this series with attractive features that emphasize an organic sound and look, combined with the durability drummers look for.
The Tour Custom Maple drum sets are constructed with 100 percent maple 6-ply shells using the company’s proprietary staggered diagonal seam shell construction, building a thin drum shell that will start round and stay round. Other features include 2.3mm vintage inverted Dyna Hoops that help focus the sound and keep the drums in tune longer, solid and durable hardware including one-point lug attachments on all shells to enhance the drum’s sustain, and Remo US heads.
The series features five new beautiful satin finishes: Butterscotch Satin, Caramel Satin, Candy Apple Red Satin, Chocolate Satin and Black Licorice Satin.
“With the world’s music in mind, the Tour Custom Maple kit design draws on our company’s experience as the number one backline company in the world for drums, with kits played by countless top musicians in all genres of music,” said Steven Fisher, marketing manager, Yamaha Drums. “This kit offers a durable solution for working drummers who incorporate a variety of applications and styles into their everyday playing.”
