I've wondered that too. I have both kits and they're both very different. For me, the CC has a very modern vintage feel and a tighter sound, whereas the Pearl drums have a much wider, open and contemporary feel and sound. Both great drums though and both keepers for me.
I think it was the price. Maybe someone here remembers what they paid new/if they bought new.It was in the works for some years, including prototype testing. But for now with covid and some mayor key players not digging it, I won’t see a 3th gen anytime soon.
On the other hand. Drums are evolving and I could be very well the golden nugget. Especially as the 2nd gen is still so loved.
I do wonder why it is loved now and not so much when it was released. Hype? Changing drummers landscape?
Hey. Nice to meet you btw. that's street or list ? Also, the Pearl sound must be the fiberglass no ? I've often thought about one of the Pearl kits, but man, I've got enough. I need to buy a house. and microphones.This review says £2,600 for the kit pictured, so not cheap - https://www.musicradar.com/reviews/drums/yamaha-club-custom-kit-476696
Ash Soan was the only other high profile player I know who was playing them.
How old are you and how's your health?
you know, you sold me your first 20-12-14 with that orange Yamaha logo. You can have that head back if you like, it's not my thing. Mostly it's the YAMAHA lettering. I like the vintage logo..
I believe it may have been the stock head and I removed the black logo with acetone. I ordered theThat logo and resonant head look fab! What head is that?
Thanks. I like the way it looks with the ‘holes’ and somewhere in my mind I thought there was a stock head like that.I believe it may have been the stock head and I removed the black logo with acetone. I ordered the
orange ones on line somewhere. I made the small holes in the reso head with a punch I have a MAY system
internal mic on it and wanted to have a little venting on it
DW resonant heads have the holes on the sides. That’s where I got it from.Thanks. I like the way it looks with the ‘holes’ and somewhere in my mind I thought there was a stock head like that.
I’ve had my Black Swirl kit(22/12/16 w/matching snare) for sale on DF for quite awhile. Every time I see these posts on how great they are I get 2nd thoughts. : )
