All maple, all Yamaha, at a pleasing price.
The first Yamaha maple drums with 60-degree bearing edges provide clear fundamental tones, delivering
warm resonant sustain and clear low-frequency impact. The wood snare drum has full body, cutting high end, and is very articulate
at all dynamic levels. Drum shell pack only. Cymbals and hardware sold separately.
Air Seal System
All Yamaha wood drums have one thing in common-Yamaha's craftsmen create every drum shell using their exclusive staggered
diagonal seam, Air Seal System just as they have since 1967. Each two or three-ply master ply is cut to length to very precise
tolerance with a diagonal cut on each end. The diagonal seam in the drum shell will not separate, eliminating the need to
fill gaps in the bearing edge with filler putty. These plies have glue applied and are then put into the mold by hand, one
master play at a time. The craftsman then inserts an air bag into the mold and inflates it, clamping the shell with even pressure
360 degrees around. This process creates a shell that is strong, starts round, and stays round for many years.
Tour Custom drum shells are 100% maple. The bass drums are 7-ply 7mm and have a warm, deep tone; the toms are 6-ply 6mm, with
lots of warmth and resonance and have a wide tuning range. The matching wood snare drum has body, yet plenty of high end and
is very articulate at all dynamic levels.
60 Degree Bearing Edges
All Tour Custom drums have 60-degree R2 bearing edges. This is something new for Yamaha on a maple shell drum set. This bearing
edge has a rounder profile so that there is more shell to head contact. This gives the drums clarity in the low-end fundamental
and added warmth.
Bass Drum Spurs
Sturdy, yet simple in design; the bass drum spurs hold the bass drum firmly in place even under heavy playing. They are height
adjustable using a drum key, and there are steel spikes that can be exposed when extra hold is needed. They fold up compact
for transport and are marked with angle indicators so that you can set them up the same every time.
and Floor Tom Brackets
All Tour Custom toms and floor toms use the YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System). The toms have a mount attached to the shell
at the nodal point by two bolts. This system allows the drum shell to vibrate freely for maximum sustain without restricting
with where the placement of the drums. The floor tom brackets are small, minimal contact mounts that are located at the nodal
point. They hold the legs securely in place without restricting the vibration of the shell.
Ball Clamp and
Triple Tom Holder
Tour Custom drum sets includes the TH-945 triple tom holder with Yamaha's tom ball clamp that gives you 360-degree rotation.
The ball, made of a super-hard resin, is held in place by a single bolt making angle adjustments on the toms quick and easy.
The toms lock firmly in place at virtually any angle you want. This versatile tom holder lets you mount any combination of
up to three toms and/or cymbals by using either the standard or the long version of Yamaha's tom ball clamp and CH model cymbal
