Yamaha - Tour Custom Drum SetYamaha Drums introduces the affordable, all-maple shell Tour Custom Drum Set. The new Tour Custom is perfect for players who want a quality kit at a great price, or for educational institutions seeking a solid drum set without stretching their budgets.

The kit's 60-degree bearing edge, air-sealed diagonal seam shells help enhance the drum set's clarity. The 7-ply bass drum's enhanced low end and the 6-ply toms and snare drum focus help make this kit sound incredible.

"This drum set hits a price point that Yamaha has not been in before with a 100 percent maple shell, however, we enter this price point with a highly-competitive, quality-made kit that sounds totally different than any other Yamaha drum set," said David Jewell, marketing manager, Yamaha Drums. "Reintroducing 60-degree bearing edges gives these drums a truly unique sound."

The set comes in three shell-pack configurations. Two optional hardware packs and individual components are also available. Lacquer-finish color options include Black Onyx, Brown Sunburst, Sakura White and Ocean Blue.

The new five-piece Tour Custom kit will ship in November 2006 and carries an MSRP of $2,149 with 700 series hardware, $1,599 without hardware.
