Yamaha SBP8F3 Stage Custom Bop Drum Shell Kit, 3-Piece

Made using technology that enables thin, resonant shells and nodal point mounting, Yamaha's SBP8F3 Stage Custom bop drum kit sounds great and sets up easily.

Yamaha Stage Custom Birch drum shell packs are great for beginners or working professionals. The staggered diagonal seam allowed to build a thin drum shell that will start round and stay round. The low-mass lugs lets the shell vibrate for superb tone and sustain. Air seal system used for drum shell construction ensures each and every drum shell is of uniform thickness and is perfectly round to achieve superior tone quality and durability. Features a beautiful high-gloss lacquer finish. Hardware and cymbals sold separately.


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 the 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. * Nodal point mounting is patented by the Noble & Cooley Drum read more Company.

Ball Mount & Clamp

A tribute to Yamaha design technology, our original ball mount and clamp has gone through 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.

Just bought this shell pack for a second kit and I’m very happy with them. The finish is descent quality but had light scuffing of the gloss in a few areas. Not noticeable unless in the right light and close up. The heads are REMO/ UT China...so the cheap version of Ambassadors. Sounded better then I thought they would. I’ll still replace them with Ambassadors or Evans calftones. The bass drum sounds pretty good. I’m looking for a more traditional bop sound and the cheaper heads that come on the kit are more geared to modern music. More thumpy. Still, again, sounds better then I though with the cheaper heads. Hardware is simple, straight forward and good quality. The bearing edges were all good and smooth with the exception of a section, about 1 centimeter long, on the bass batter side. There was a rough/ scratchy patch but I easily sanded it smooth on both sides of edge and it’s fine now. So overall... a very nice kit that sounds good and a joy to play. I’m glad I bought it. You can beat it for the money.
