The 100 percent birch shells were designed to offer a cutting low-end and sustain.
Yamaha's first mid-priced Birch kit also comes with all-new, top-quality 700 series hardware.
"Following the all-Maple Tour Custom set, we developed the Stage Custom Birch to put an all-Birch, lacquer-finished Yamaha kit within reach of almost anyone," said Jim Haler, product manager, Yamaha Drums, Pro Audio & Combo Division.
The drum sets feature three configurations, including a five-piece with a 20-in. bass drum, a five-piece with a 22-in. bass drum and a four-piece with a 24-in. bass drum. All toms are in "universal" size depths to provide projection and a pure tone.
