Yamaha Recording Custom

Per Day : $143
Per Week: $429

For over 30 years, the Recording Custom has set a benchmark for excellence. Possibly the most recorded drum in history, it has enjoyed an unparalleled history of success and innovation. Although trends come and go, the Recording Custom, with its birch shells and pristine interior and exterior finish, delivers a sound the seems "pre-EQ-ed", perfect for studio or multi-miking in any situation. Unmiked, it will hold its own-with power and tone to spare.

The RC's 100% birch shells combine a high gloss lacquer exterior finish with a hand-rubbed stain interior. The 7-ply bass drums and 6-ply tom toms have straight sided walls, allowing unimpeded sound projection. This is further aided by the perfect 45 degree bearing edges. The shells are manufactured using our Air Seal System where the wood plies, with staggered diagonal seams, are sealed together under evenly distributed air pressure. This ensures that all Yamaha shells are the model of consistency and durability.

Birch shells deliver a lower fundamental tone than maple. As a result, they project a warm, rounded sound with a slightly shorter decay, ideal for the controlled environment of the studio. The legendary RC is consequently the most recorded drum kit of modern times. The controlled sound is further helped by sleek, one-piece Hi-Tension heavily chromed lug casings. Precision machined lug nuts provide noise-free operation due to their spring-less casing design.

A choice of snare drums is available and one snare is included in the kit price. All kits are supplied in any 5-piece configuration for the listed price when available and include:

  • Kick Pedal
  • Hi-Hat Stand
  • Snare Stand
  • 3 x Cymbal Boom Stands
  • All Tom Hardware & Stool in SKB Cases.

Please note price does not include the hire of cymbals. Please refer to our Backline Hire Price List for cymbal prices and a list of snare drums available.
