Sized for small venues and practice spaces, the Yamaha Stage Custom Hip kit provides a big sound from a compact configuration. How compact? The entire kit can fit into a 20' kick drum case and 14" floor tom caseâ€¦ and most trunks! However, its diminutive footprint doesn't mean it has a small-sized tone. Its 6-ply all-birch shells deliver ample depth and presence, so your grooves will be heard loud and clear. The Stage Custom Hip also includes a snare strainer on the floor tom for adding an optional second, deeper snare. And, the small form factor bass drum can be utilized as a sub-kick extension to add heft to standard-sized kickâ€”an awesome trick for stage and studio. Drummers at Leaseville love this kit for gigging around town, not just for its size but for its unmistakable vibe. If you're looking for an ultra-portable kit with loads of character, check out the Yamaha Stage Custom Hip kit.
Sweetwater drummers love maple drums. But if you've never experienced birch shells from behind the kit, you're in for a treat with the Yamaha Stage Custom Hip shell pack. Its 6-ply birch shells boast a lively attack with warm, clear overtones, which speak openly at both high and low registers. So whether you play hip-hop, dance, Americana, or jazz, this kit delivers.
In addition to the reduced shell sizing, the Stage Custom Hip kit ships standard with a set of coated Remo UT batter heads â€” Ambassador toms and a Powerstroke P3 bass â€” to capture those warm, woody, full-bodied tones.
