I play and collect vintage 80's-90's Yamaha Recording Custom RC 9000 pre- Y.E.S.S series Cobalt Blue Lacquer, solid birch shell drums with black shell interiors. I'm hoping this posting will connect me with other people who also own these and are looking to become part of my growing network of other owners to discuss them and barter.
I own most diameter shells they made in this color, but I am still in search of a few others though like shallow toms, an 18" floor tom and kick / bass drum, a 16" suspended tom and a 5.5x14 shallow depth snare.
I would consider trading my deeper power toms for shallower depth standard toms. I prefer pre Y.E.S.S. mount tom mounts and black interiors.
If you have any of these drums and wish to sell/trade or simply love to discuss them, please contact me via e-mail. Please send detailed descriptions, pictures, diameters, depths and condition.
The sizes I currently own are as follows:
Suspended rack toms:
14x8 8-lug Recording Custom
14x6.5 8-lug Tour Custom
14x6.5 10-lug Steel Shell 1987 Japan
14x5 10-lug Steel Shell 1978 China
12x4 Birch Stage Custom with tom mount natural finish
All toms and snares have Yamaha Vintage Wood Hoops on tops and bottoms installed & I still have all of the original metal Yamaha triple flange tom and snare rims. All kicks have aftermarket natural maple hoops installed and all 4 of the kicks came with the original Cobalt Blue lacquer hoops which are in climate controlled storage.
