The Yamaha Tour Custom Maple promises pro drummers a single kit for touring and recording. At just 5.6mm thin, the Tour Custom Maple's 6-ply maple shells with 45° bearing edges speak with authority. The toms boast a wide tuning range and excellent intervallic relationships, while the bass drum packs a modern attack and timeless warmth to connect with audiences onstage and on tape. The Tour Custom Maple builds on Yamaha's 50 years in the drum industry, borrowing features — single-post lugs and YESS tom mounts — from its award-winning Absolute series. Stick-saving rounded Dyna-Hoops and an eye-catching satin finish give the Tour Custom Maple great stage appeal.

Each Yamaha Tour Custom Maple snare is finished in a modern satin stain that's guaranteed to stand the test of time.
