One of the most recorded drum kits in the world. The Yamaha Recording Custom 20'' 4pc Shell Pack delivers a ''pre-eq'' sound that's perfect for micing up in any situation. To meet the demands of the modern drummer, Yamaha upgraded several aspects of the Recording Custom. And who more fitting to help than session drumming legend Steve Gadd? Together they have introduced all-birch, 6-ply shells for crystal clear sound and noise reduction, making it ideal for recording environments. A lifted bass drum maximises resonance from the shell. Today's revamped design still retains the traditional essence of the Recording Custom, but with modern innovation, making them a top choice for recording artists worldwide.

Birch shells produce a lower fundamental tone than maple. Their crisp tone, smoothly rounded attack, and noise reduction are all qualities that make them ideal for any recording situation. Yamaha's Air Seal System shells feature select birch wood cut in plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. This process ensures that every drum shell is in round and of uniform thickness while providing superior tone quality and durability.
With a springless design for noise-free control, the Yamaha Recording Custom 4pc Shell Pack uses hi-tension lugs for consistent and accurate tuning throughout your recording sessions. The polished chrome lugs are manufactured as genuine one-piece units, offering increased strength and durability to the birch shells whilst complementing the look of the kit as a whole.
The Y.E.S.S tom mounts are Yamaha's innovative enhanced sustain subsystem which minimises interference between the tom mounts and the drum shell's natural response or rumble. Employed to deliver advanced sustain and untainted tonal clarity the Y.E.S.S system features a number of supported points (rubber spacers) dependant on the size of the drum which are evenly spaced to modulate the rumbling caused by the weight of the drum. This results in clear response and well-balanced rumble from one drum to the next.
The Yamaha Recording Custom Brass Snare Drum was designed in collaboration with legendary drummer and Yamaha artist Steve Gadd to reintroduce their recording custom series with modern technology and the latest innovations for optimising its sound. Possessing precision-machined lug nuts, Remo heads, Q type and DC3 type strainers and an outward centre bead, Yamaha's Recording Custom Snare Drum is an excellent addition to any drummer wanting to fully utilise their recording custom drum kit.
