What We Think

The Stage Customs live up to their reputation as being dependable great sounding drums. The birch wood handles highs and lows very well and allows drummers to really lay into the drum or gently play and receive great tone either way. The thicker shells complemented with the 45-degree bearings add focus and definition regardless of your tuning preference. The newly upgraded lugs with rubber gaskets that insulate every metal component at the point where it meets the shell, the die-cast claws for the bass drums, and the lacquer finishes continue to raise the bar for the rest of the industry.

Since its inception in 1995, the Yamaha Stage Custom set has brought a build and sound quality that defies its price tag. Whether you are getting your first set or using this as a second set, the Stage Custom performs with ease and continues to upgrade and enhance features while maintaining a low price.

Manufacturer's Description from Yamaha


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 our 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 Company.

Ball Mount & Clamp

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

Die-cast claw hook

New Stage Custom adopts Die-cast claw hooks with rubber insertion plates to reduce noises.

BD leg with stopper

Bass drum legs of Stage Custom have the stoppers to make setting easier.
