Yamaha today launched the Stage Custom Hip drum set, a compact version of the Stage Custom Birch, one of the most popular venue backline kits around the world. Ideally suited for an eclectic range of genres, this drum set was developed for a wide variety of drummers, including street performers, pub gig players, educators, hybrid players using DJ/electronic gear and home recording studio musicians. Additionally, this drum set is a great at-home practice solution with low volume setups.
Designed in a one-box configuration, the Stage Custom Hip was developed with 100% Birch 6-ply shells and includes a 20″ x 8″ bass drum, offering a deep tonal low end as well as smaller footprint, a 13″ x 8″ floor tom/snare tom, 13″ x 5″ snare and 10″ x 5″ rack tom. Drummers can explore new sounds with the floor tom snare in this one-of-a-kind drum set configuration.
Other features include steel triple flange hoops and a compact single tom holder for easy transportation. The series offers three beautiful finishes: Natural Wood, Raven Black and the new Matte Surf Green.
“The Hip configuration is a brilliant addition to the Stage Custom Birch series” Gavin Thomas, UK Product Manager explained “It provides a compact Drum Set that Yamaha have been renowned for, but with a larger bass drum that players feel more comfortable with. The kit looks great and sounds even better with Artists loving the addition of our new snare release on the floor tom for some added playing possibilities”
