Fast forward back to the NAMM Show 2016 and Yamaha has revealed that the latest edition of this classic drum kit boasts a few new features to deliver an even better playing experience.

The weight of the lug has been increased, the kit shells are made from 100% North American Birch 6 ply and a 30 degree bearing edge.

Other enhancements include a lifted 20" bass drum to maximize the resonance of the shell and increases the length of the pedal beater rod to ensure fantastic accuracy. Other bass drum sizes are available, however, the lifted bass drum option is only available on the 18" and 20" kick drum versions respectively.

Finally, the Recording Custom has a thin high gloss lacquer finish for great-looking aesthetics as well as maximizing shell resonance and tone.

The Recording Custom is available in four different finishes: black, surf green, walnut and real wood.
