The summer of 1986 was the first ever time i came across the recording custom. I was instantly "HOOKED" on the flawless punchy yet crisp sound of the drums.
The gig was "it bites" and bob dalton had this superb set of 9000's which was black they sounded so great from that day on i had to own a set without question.
Today im still a fan of bob and it bites but moreso my love for the recording customs has grown even more. My sets over the years have been "quartz grey" and the beloved "cherrywood".
Yamaha in my mind certainly created a true paradigm here and as recordings of famous artists will testify the yamaha recording custom stands high in drumworld with head held high.
