Series Info

Very few drum series manage to stay relevant. The Recording Custom Series, first launched in ’75 has continued to be one of the most recorded drum kits for over four decades and counting.
Today, we are proud to expand this classic series with the introduction of two new Recording Custom Birch Snares.
Since its first introduction to the market, the quality of the Recording Custom series has proven to endure the test of time. The unique mixture of Birch Shells, One Piece Lugs and a small selection of timeless finishes continue to excite drummers around the world, making it the #1 choice for recording artists as well as live drummers, who all praise the unique sound character that doesn't spread out too thinly and is particularly suited for recording.
In 2016 Yamaha proudly released the updated Recording Custom series that features a new sonic interaction of a 1-ply thinner birch shell with a modified, modern high tension lug. Adding the rigidity of the lugs to the thinner shell for more volume and power, the 2016 Recording Custom drums create a well-formed, core sound that we can truly say is in line with the Recording Custom heritage.
Following the success of the 2016 series, our development team took on the task of bringing this sonic interaction to matching snare drums, resulting in the launch of our two new birch models: the RBS1480 and RBS1455.
