Oak /Phenolic Sheet Hybrid Shell 

The Live Custom Hybrid Oak shell concept is borrowed from our flagship PHX and Absolute Hybrid Maple kits, which feature a dense phenolic sheet sandwiched between two sheets of Oak ply. Always a pioneer in the field of of Oak drums, Yamaha has enhanced the dynamic range of the new Live Custom kits by accentuating their attack and projection.


The traditional Japanese finishing technique known as "UZUKURI" has been modified for use on drum shells. In this procedure, the soft areas in the wood grain are sanded and then the whole shell is coated with a thin layer of black paint. The entire surface of the shell is then sanded again before the final coating is applied, in a process that emphasizes the natural beauty of the Oak grain.

Bass Enhansement Weight (PAT.PEND)

Featuring a design styled around the Absolute Lug, the weights studded in the bass drum at the lug points attenuate low-mid frequencies, resulting in a tight, focused bass drum sound.

Dark Silver Hardware and Black Finished Shell Interiors

Dark Silver hardware delivers a dominating image further heightened with the black shell interiors

Absolute Lugs

Shells feature Yamaha's exclusive Absolute Lugs. Their sophisticated design adds a touch of class to the drums.

Die-Cast Bass Drum Hooks

Bass drums feature designed die-cast hooks, which provide noise free function through the use of an insertion plate.

Floor Tom Blacket

Floor Tom bracket includes wing bolts. It's designed to clamp tightly on the leg wituout damaging it, to save time on stage, and to deliver optinum decay cotrol.


An evolutionary step up from our YESS II m tom mount, the YESS III reduces acoustic dampening even further. Allowing the shell to vibrate more freely, the YESS III mount brings out more of the shell's natural sustain and Volume.

2.3mm Dyna Hoop & Emperor Head

Thicker steel hoops offer a tighter sound and sharper response, and toms and floor toms are equipped with clear Remo Emperor heads, which are known for their deep sound great durability.
