To celebrate the upcoming 45th anniversary of the first edition of the Recording Custom drum set, Yamaha Drums is manufacturing 45 kits built to the specifications of the most recorded drums in of all time, including 15 each of Mellow Yellow, Piano White and Hot Red.
Each individually numbered drum set will include a certificate to honor the history of the kit. Dave Jewell, marketing manager, Yamaha Drums, thinks that "built to original specifications, with 60-degree bearing edges and pre-YESS mounts, this limited edition run will be in high demand from studios, collectors and pro drum shops."
According to Yamaha, the Japanese Hokkaido birch shells on the Recording Custom and interior and exterior finishes are designed to deliver a sound that discriminating ears considered to be "pre-EQ'd," making them good for the studio or for using multiple microphones in any situation.
