Classics Improved with Help from Steve Gadd

Yamaha's Recording Custom drum series is for the recording or performing drummer who demands premium construction and tone. These drums were re-engineered in collaboration with Steve Gadd, an iconic session musician with credits such as B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and many more. The Recording Custom's 6-ply birch construction offers an open sound with great definition. And the hardware is all top quality, designed to offer tone enhancement, stability, and ease of use. Yamaha and Gadd worked together on the Recording Customs to make you some of the ultimate drums for recording and gigging.

  • Engineered with input from Steve Gadd
  • Redesigned shells
  • Proprietary Yamaha hardware
Engineered with input from Steve Gadd

Because the Recording Custom series drums are some of the most recorded drum sets in the world, when Yamaha set out to update the line, they relied heavily on the expertise of drumming session great Steve Gadd. Gadd's goals with the new Recording Customs were for them to feel comfortable and have a rounder and deeper tone. He also wanted to make them as versatile as possible by extending the tuning range. This adds up to instruments that are highly nuanced and that respond well to your playing technique and drumhead choice.

Redesigned shells

The shell design of the Yamaha Recording Custom drums is all about enhancing the punch and clarity of your kit, while eliminating unwanted interference from other drums mounted close by. The 6-ply birch construction is a favorite in the studios here at Sweetwater for its blend of attack and low-end warmth. And the 30-degree bearing edges deliver a quick response, are easy to tune, and bring out the sonic characteristics of your drumheads.

Proprietary Yamaha hardware

Gadd and Yamaha made sure to use only the best of Yamaha's proprietary hardware on the redesigned Recording Custom drums. Each piece was chosen to give you stability, ease of use, and tonal enhancement. The High Tension lugs are built with increased weight to help dampen unwanted noise and ringing from the shells. YESS mounts connect to the shell with minimal contact. This allows the drums to resonate freely. And the YESS mounts are also placed so that they won't ever interfere with your drum placement or head changes.

Awesome sound

I have a 5 piece recording custom in walnut and it is a beautiful looking and sounding kit! It is the best sounding kit I have ever heard or owned and I have owned many kits. It is well worth the money. I wasn't concerned with it being made in China because everything Yamaha makes is excellent quality!
