Yamaha Oak Custom - The most awesome sounding drums period!

Yamaha Oak Custom

Yamaha Oak Custom

I have a 7pc Yamaha Oak Custom in Red Oak. 10,12,13,14,16 and 22 kick along with the Hex Rack system. The sound from these drums are melodic and deep at the same time pending on your attack. I have the Evans Black onyx heads which really enhances the tones.

First off the wood color in red with the black streaks running through it are stunning especially under the stage lighting. I have been playing in some heavy jazz fusion gigs with this kit and everybody goes damm! that set is a killer! What the the hell is Oak custom? And I reply, its the final answer to making music complete from a drummers perspective!

The cage is so easy to set up everything is were you last set it up (NO Guess work)! And it's sturdy as hell with the hex and ball clamps. This is the first time in life I can go anywhere, sit behind a kit thats not mine and go yeah those drums are ok but they are not Yamaha Oaks.

If you are looking for a set by all means check all the other drum lines then check out the Yamaha Oak Custom and hollar back at me and say "Dude you were telling the Gods honest truth".
