New Silver Sparkle Oak Custom Drums Are Awesome

Silver Sparkle Oak Custom Drums

Silver Sparkle Oak Custom Drums

I wanted maple until I tried the Oak Custom, totally impressed. Just bought a 4 pc set and then bought an 8"x7" Tom as I love small toms.

These bad boys are heavier in weight, which I like, the sound will cut through the loudest band with a great sound.

I play in a Rock, Southern Rock band and these are ideal for my music. They do project louder than maple or birch even un mic'd. I Like that too. Jazz??? Oak Customs? Possibly not meant for that genre.

If you want to order extra toms or another bass - it was a mission. I tried the majors being Musicians friend, Guitar Center and no luck. I even tried Yamaha corporate for help. No luck. I found Rupps Drums in Denver on the internet. Totally helped my get my tom and appreciated the business. Highly impressed with these guys.

I sold my DW collector series to buy Yamaha Oak Customs. That ought to give you an idea how good these are.

Oak is great, but.... NEW
by: Anthony Rodebaugh

I had a 6-pc Yamaha Oak Custom (wrote about it on another page in this site) which I sold for a DW Collector Series Maple. I agree the Oak Custom was a great set, but I am much happier with the DW. I've realized through the number of sets I've purchased over the years that this is all personal preference. I guess I'm glad there is no such thing as the "best drumset" or "best brand" or "best" whatever. If there were such a thing, then there would be no other drums to choose...which would be BORING!

Glad you love your Yamaha Oak Customs! I'm loving my DW Collector Series! As long as what you play also inspires and drives you to be a better drummer, then PLAY ON!
