This is an original 'Made in Japan' Yamaha Maple Custom in Black Maple Stain with the iconic Gold lugs. These kits are becoming quite hard to find especially ones in good condition.

In the years since its introduction, the Yamaha Maple Custom Series has become a standard by which other drums are evaluated, Crafted of all-maple shells, the Maple Custom offers a sound that harkens to the rich and robust tones of collectible vintage drums, but with contemporary attack, projection, and consistent timbre from to drum to drum. The Maple Custom is now acknowledged as a classic of modern times.  Maple offers a warm sound with full sustain and outstanding projection.

Yamaha's original Air Seal System shells feature select maple wood cut in plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. This process ensures that every drum shell is in round and of uniform thickness. It also provides the shell with superior tone quality and durability. Floor tom and tom shells use a 7-ply design. Additional plies in the 10-ply bass drum shells help produce a low fundamental tone. A sturdy hexagonal design and fixed angle position allow Yamaha spurs to withstand bass drum kicks. Height adjustment and the releasing and retracting of the pointed spur are made easily with a drum key. Long found on Yamaha high-end drum kits are the original YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) mounting system which is on all the toms. This rod clamp system allows attachment of the drum to the tom holder without the need of a hole in the drum shell for the rod to pass through. The YESS clamp is attached to the shell at the nodal point with two bolts so as to allow the shell to vibrate freely without degrading the shell's dynamic range and sustain. The nodal point is the location on a shell with the least amount of vibration allowing for the mount to have minimal affect to the resonance of the shell. The round ball clamp has long been a fundamental part of Yamaha System Drums. Made of super-hard resin, the ball is held firmly in place with a steel plate and large wing bolt. While providing ease of operation, this system also delivers total freedom in setting and superior stability. The triple tom holder accommodates two toms as well as a cymbal holder to provide a wide variety of set up possibilities.
