Yamaha has revealed that the famous Recording Custom Drum Series, re-designed with Steve Gadd, will be released in 2016.

Originally launched in 1975, the Recording Custom series (or 9000 series as it was known then) has become the industry standard drum set admired by world leading drummers, engineers, studio's and hire companies around the world.

Regarded as the most recorded drum set in history, the all birch design was instrumental in shaping the modern drum set as we know it today including shell construction, interchangeable hardware and high gloss lacquer finishing.

40 years on and Yamaha will release a totally new design, having worked on a detailed 3 year R&D program with legendary drummer Steve Gadd to enhance the character of the drum set and consider demands of drummers today.
