Live Custom Oak Drum Kit.

New Factory opens in China

From the two videos (see below) we see two very slick demonstrations from Matt Halpern of Periphery a progressive metal band and the legend himself, Mr Tommy Aldrige of many well known bands such as Whitesnake, Garry Moore, Ozzy Osbourne and many more play the brand new Live Custom Oak drum kit that is now being manufactured in China. This should not make the build a lesser quality than that of Japanese drum kits in any way. This is the same factory where Yamaha been producing their pianos for some time now. Enjoy the videos of both Matt and Tommy playing this amazing oak drum kit when you get to the bottom of this blog!

Yamaha Live Custom Oak Drum Kit:

Well I guess we had best mention the brand new Yamaha Live Custom drum kit and give you some features about it, eh? Okay then here goes… The Live Custom drum kit has been designed for, as you would instantly guess, yes, live performances. The shells are 10% thicker than the normal Oak Custom Series drum sets with 1.2mm oak piles. The bass drum is constructed from 8-plys and the toms are made up from 6-plys. These drums have been designed to give you the drummer more depth and strength while enabling you to more expressive with your playing. This is a drum kit that has been built to be played and played hard. The shell hardware has been finished off in a dark silver finish which compliments all the available colours really well. The current four colours that are available to choose from are Emerald Shadow Sunburst, Amber Shadow Sunburst, Black Shadow Sunburst and Black Wood. This kit comes with a matching 6-ply snare drum which is fitted with the new Q type release/DC3 type butt. The heavy-duty strainer is built to last and be easy to use in those ;live performances. All the toms and snare drums are fitted with Yamaha’s exclusive Absolute lugs. The bass drum is fitted with die cast bass drum claws.

All in all this looks like another great drum kit from Yamaha.!


A special thank you to Mike Dolbear for allowing us to use these two videos

One more Video for luck :)
