"You cannot go wrong with a Yamaha Stage Custom Birch Drum Set"

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 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
