This listing is for an amazing vintage early 1980’s Yamaha Recording Custom drum set. The finish is the hard to find blonde lacquer. The drums are in very good condition, with some minor scratches and nicks as noted below. The chrome is in very good shape with very few dings and very minor pitting in a couple of areas, nothing major or that would show up in pictures. I have played this kit for over 6 years in a band and it sounds great! I have always stored it in a temperature controlled room, it was in an air conditioned studio for 5 years where my band rehearsed. The batter heads on the toms coated are Remo Emperors, used but with lots of life left in them. I have not replaced them because most drummers are going to want to put their heads of choice on the drums. The resonant heads are like new, all clear Remo Ambassadors except for the 14 tom that has an Evans clear Genera G1. This is a wonderful, great sounding drum set! The Recording Custom model is said to be the most recorded drums used in studios. The description, model and serial numbers are. 9 X 13 rack tom; Model# TT913RA serial# JI. Small nicks on a couple of panels and a 1 scratch on the air hole panel as shown in picture #8. A few small nicks. 10 X 14 rack tom; Model#TT914RA serial# IZ. A few small nicks on a couple of panels. 16 X 16 Floor tom; Model# FT916RA serial# JK. A few small nicks on 2 panels. 16 X 18 Floor tom; Model# FT918RA serial# IM. A few small nicks and scratches.

The hoops have a few small scratches with some pedal rash on the bottom of the batter hoop. Resonant head on the bass drum is a Remo Power Stroke Fiberskin head, and the batter side is an Evans EMAD 2. Please ask any questions you may have.
