The Yamaha Stage Custom Birch Shell Set Raven Black is a 5-piece acoustic shell set, comprised of 20x17" Bass, 10x7 & 12x8" Tom Toms, 14x13" Floor Tom and 14x5.5" Snare. Since their introduction in 1995 the Stage Custom Drum sets from Yamaha have set the standard in their price-class.
The most important improvement of the Stage Custom series concerns the snare drum. Instead of a metal shell, the snare drum now features a shell made of Birch. This delivers a warm and very powerful sound, perfectly integrating itself with the sound of the Stage Custom series. With its 10 lugs per side, the Stage Custom snare drum can be easily and reliably tuned.
Lugs and bass drum claws of the Stage Custom Birch series have also experienced an upgrade, and are now equipped with rubber gaskets. This protects the wood of the shell as well as improving the resonating characteristics. The bass drum legs of the Stage Custom Birch drums feature stoppers to aid setup.
Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System (Y.E.S.S): The Tom Toms of the Stage Custom drums are mounted with the popular Y.E.S.S suspension, which guarantees unrestricted resonating characteristics of the birch shells through minimal contact.
