Yamaha Music Europe GmbH (UK) are proud to introduced the Tour Custom drum set, designed for today’s actively working drummer looking for a versatile kit suitable for both recording and playing live, finished in five new beautiful Satin ‘Candy’ finishes.
The Tour Custom 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 ‘Candy Inspired’ Satin finishes: Butterscotch, Caramel, Candy Apple Red, Chocolate and Black Liquorice.
‘World Touring is our Jam’. The world’s largest tour and studio backline suppliers have depended on Yamaha Drums and Hardware for decades, inspiring the development of Yamaha Tour Custom, conceived from the DNA of Yamaha’s game-changing and award winning Absolute series.
Designed with close consultation by Yamaha’s world-wide artist family, the Tour Custom features a reduced inner ply-thicknesses of 0.8mm each to bring the total shell thickness to 5.6mm, the thinnest maple drum kit shell Yamaha have ever produced whilst still retaining the strength and durability Yamaha are renowned for.
“The Tour Custom is back, this time with a distinctly new flavour” said Gavin Thomas Yamaha Drums UK Marketing Manager “We have listened to what drummers would like to see and hear with a true understanding of who, where and how our drums are being 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 superb addition to the award winning Yamaha line up and they sound sweet”
