Meet the updated Yamaha Stage Custom drum kit -- equipped with 100% birch shells, an upgraded ball mount and clamp, and Yamaha's Enhanced Sustain System.
The Yamaha SBP2F50 Stage Custom five-piece drum shell kit utilizes Yamaha's enhanced sustain system to help you get more stability and sustain out of your drum hits. This shell kit features a kick, snare, floor, and two mid tom drums, as well as a TH945C tom holder to get you started. Each drum is built with 100% six-ply structure birch shells and triple-flange steel hoops for a secure and steady design. Yamaha's custom ball mount and clamp design and die-cast claw hooks provide additional stability and a helpful reduction of noise.

YESS: Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System

What sets your SBP2F50 kit apart from others is Yamaha's enhanced sustain system. To encourage your drum shells to resonate naturally, this design aims for as minimal of contact as possible between the shells and the hoops, claws, and other hardware. This design has also made sure that the point of contacts are nodal points to avoid interference with shell vibration and sustain. The YESS model allows you to place your toms closer together if you're the type of drummer who loves speedy fills, no matter how hard or how fast your sticks fly.

6-Ply Birch Shells

To get more out of each stroke, each of the Yamaha Stage Custom kit's five drums is built using a six-ply structure birch shell. Birch is a classic tonewood choice for a drum kit, and it allows for the resonance, sustain, and accurate conveyance of the impact surface vibrations of each drum. Every hit will generate and maintain a big, warm, and vigorous punch read more that will fill the room with vibrant sonic animation.

Less Noise -- More Drum

Each drum utilizes triple-flange steel hoops and die-cast claw hooks to provide stability with just the right amount of flexibility, so your drums ring out without any buzz or loss of tonal energy. Yamaha's custom ball mount and clamp design provides additional steadiness and features an ultra-hard resin ball inside a chromed housing, which is held securely in place via a titanium ergonomic wing bolt. You can hit this kit as hard and fast as you like, knowing well that each drum will maintain its footing every beat of the way.

Yamaha SBP2F50 Stage Custom Shell Kit 5

As with the introduction of Stage Custom in 1995 Yamaha once again sets the standards of value and sound. The SBP2F5 Stage Custom inherits 100% birch wood, with upgraded metal parts.


The shell is a key factor in a drum's ability to rumble, or resonate. Accordingly, the Stage Custom employs 100% birch - a classic in the realm of high-class drum kits. Moreover, with its six-ply structure the Stage Custom accurately conveys the vibrations produced at the impact surface, achieving performance that overwhelms anything in its class.

Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System - YESS

The secret of our YESS system is twofold: First, it provides minimum contact of hardware with shell; second, it connects that hardware at the nodal point of the drum - the point at which it will not interfere with shell vibration. Nylon bushings on rod clamps afford maximum stability. The YESS system permits toms to be placed close together, and does not interfere with quick head changes. On floor toms, our YESS system offers wide open sustain while keeping toms stable under the heaviest strokes.

Ball Mount and Clamp

A tribute to Yamaha design technology, our original ball mount and clamp has gone through very few modifications over the years. A large, ultra-hard resin ball sits in an attractive chromed housing, held in place with a titanium ergonomic wing bolt. It is the ultimate drummer-friendly mount, offering non-slip positioning virtually anywhere the drummer can imagine. Additionally, it permits tuning of the bottom head by simply rotating the drum.

Die-cast claw hook

Stage Custom adopts Die-cast claw hooks with rubber insertion plates to reduce noises.

BD leg with stopper

Bass drum legs of Stage Custom have the stoppers to make setting easier.

"You cannot go wrong with a Yamaha Stage Custom Birch Drum Set"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Before you get all hooked up on the hype and advertising of the other brands, you may want to look a bit deeper. Just so you know, there is a huge difference between companies, and woods and manufacturing. Although all drum sets look amazing on the showroom floor, what really matters, how do they sound in real life. Woods like Poplar and mahogany, are not the best woods for drums. Of coarse, they appealing part is they come with hardware and cheap cymbals, the parents are so value oriented they think its the best deal.. WRONG. If you are truly looking to get the best value, that lays in the promised land of Yamaha. The 6 ply all birch shells are incredible and the fit and finish is not a plastic wrap, it is a actual finish on the shell, the colors are absolutely stunning, and the extras on this kit are among those costing $1,500 more. The Stage custom drum set by Yamaha is one you will be able to use the rest of your life, in any situation, any venue. the best values start here; Birch 6 ply shells, triple flange hoops, 10 lug snare drums, same hardware. most high volume retailers will not even put a set on the floor, the reason being they would only sell Yamaha's at that price point. now, I know this ad sounds like the Yamaha guys wrote it, but be assured I'm a drummer who has played drums since 1967, I have owned Ludwig, Tama, Pearl, PDP, and various other kits. in all situations gigs, concerts, clubs, rehearsal and recording.. My last kit read more was stolen not too long ago, I just got my new Yamaha Stage Custom kit three days ago. perfect, perfect and perfect. I also purchased the 7 series hardware package, and Sabian cast Cymbals. Do your self a favor, and purchase these drums right here at zZounds.com
