"The Yamaha Oak Custom was always my drum of choice when hiring gear. Now with my Maple Custom Absolute, I am proud to have that reliably fantastic sound every time we play."
- Carter Beauford
Carter Beauford is a truly ambidextrous drummer who plays left-hand lead on a right-handed kit à la Billy Cobham. He’s famous for his distinctively intricate hi-hat patterns, yet, like Cobham, he can groove, and like Dennis Chambers he has a great ‘pocket’. And what’s more, he’s a pretty mean vocalist as well!

"I bought my first Yamaha kit in 2002 after only ever having owned vintage drums. I think Yamaha drums are so versatile, they sound great at any pitch and are excellent for any musical application. Their simple, functional design and attention to detail is what make Yamaha drums so reliable."

"I loved Yamaha drums as a student which lead me to my first Recording Custom. As a performer and teacher I now love the sound, construction, reliability and statue that comes with the Yamaha brand. I love my Yamaha drums so much I bought a Yamaha Jet Ski too!!!!"

"I have been playing Yamaha Drums for over 15 years, and they consistently sound great recorded and in live situations. Sound, feel, and quality are what I look for in a kit and Yamaha delivers 100%. There is a reason Yamaha are one of the most recorded drums in popular music history."
