Borrowing from our legendary Recording Custom drum sets, the world-famous Yamaha birch sound is now available in an affordable package. From the YESS mounting system to the tom ball clamps to the rich lacquer finishes, the Stage Custom Birch encompasses value, quality, and craftsmanship.



The most affordable all-birch Yamaha drumset ever!

An incredible value, the legendary tone of an all-birch Yamaha drumset is now available in the Stage Custom series. The low fundamental and warm tone of Yamaha's birch drums have been the top choice of drummers for over 30 years.

The Stage Custom Birch series is great for the beginner or the working professional. The staggered diagonal seam allows us to build a thin shell that will start round and stay round. The beautiful high-gloss lacquer finish and low-mass lugs lets the shell vibrate for superb tone and sustain.

Stage Custom Birch is available in three configurations as shell packs, as complete drumsets with our 700 series hardware, or as individual components.


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 Cutsom have the stoppers to make setting easier.
