The Yamaha 9000 Series Recording Custom’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.

Yet another innovation of the 9000 Series Recording Custom series was the floor-stand suspended tom tom, pioneered by the world’s number one studio drummer, Steve Gadd. This funky type of mount, at first designed for Steve’s shallower floor toms, led to the now universal adoption of the ‘fusion’ style shell pack.

The Yamaha Recording Custom 9000 is today improved even further by the addition of YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) mounts. YESS minimizes tom mount-to-shell contact thereby increasing resonance and maximizing dynamic range and sustain.
