Yamaha's Tour Custom Kits Make Return at 2017 Summer NAMM

Making their debut at this year's Summer Namm, Yamaha Tour Custom Drums sets have been turning heads for all the right reasons. Complete in five satin based finishes, the Tour Custom sets are made from 100 percent Maple 6-ply shells and are imbued with Yamaha's trademark staggered diagonal seam shell construction.

2.3mm vintage inverted Dyna-Hoops focus your sound whilst aiding in the projection and tuning of the drums. Rugged and durable hardware help with the sustain of the drums. One-point lug attachments alleviate tension whilst furthering the reach and power of your notes.

Designed for mid-level drummers, the Yamaha Tour Custom is aimed at working musicians 'on the job'. Speaking of their latest release, Yamaha Drums' Gavin Thomas had this to say:

"The Tour Custom is back, this time with a distinctly new flavour. We have listened to what drummers would like to see and hear with a true understanding of who, where and how our drums are played. This is a classic Yamaha design which Yamaha fans will be accustomed to, with a few unique twists, all of which is packed into a great value for money offering. This is a super addition to the award winning Yamaha lineup and they sound sweet."
