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 have the same drums who are also looking to 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:
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 3 of the kicks came with the original Cobalt lacquer hoops.
