Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage Nouveau 4pc Shell KitYamaha Stage Custom Advantage Nouveau 4pc Shell Kit

Here we have a gently used Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage Nouveau 4pc shell kit. Fade Raven Black Lacquer finish. This is a beautiful lacquered fade finish, not a wrap. The shell set includes a 10″X13″ mounted tom with CL-945L single tom holder, 16″x16″ floor tom w/legs, a super rare special order 17″x24″ bass drum and a 6.5″x14″ matching wood snare drum. The shells show a few light scratches. There are a few scuff marks at the top of the bass drum next to the lug (see photo). Looks like marks from drum sticks resting on the bass drum. The tom heads show a normal amount of stick marks. Yamaha Air Seal System for Superior Shells. The use of the original Air Seal System is in part responsible for the superior quality found in Yamaha drum shells. Select Birch, Mahogany, and Falkata woods are selected for their tone, then formed into flawless 8-ply shells while the bass drum utilizes 9-plies for added tone and durability. The wood is cut in plies 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 superior tone quality and durability. The mounted tom is equipped with the YESS Mount. Long found on Yamaha’s high-end drum kits the original YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) mounting system is on all mounted 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. Yamaha took the revolutionary Nouveau lug and crafted it from a proprietary Fiber Reinforced Composite to create a drum that’s lighter in weight and more resonant. The lug hooks onto a post that is mounted to the shell at the nodal point so there is no vibration of the shell dampened at the tuning points. The Nouveau lug also allows you to change heads in about half the time since the tension rods don’t have to be removed to remove the head. Original Yamaha heads show stick marks. Chrome finish shows nice shinny and bright. Excellent condition. Used here in our B studio, never played out. Drums show in excellent condition. Always kept in cases when not in use. This was a special order kit from Yamaha Drums. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a 24″ Stage Custom Advantage Nouveau bass drum. They no longer make these drums.BIN @ $499.00 and receive Free Shipping!(Local pickup in Tampa, FL and receive shipping credit)Thank you for looking. Good Luck!
