Default 1980's Yamaha Drum Price List

I've searched hi and lo and can't seem to find any original price lists for 1980's Yamaha drums.

I'm specifically looking for the original price of my 1982/83 Yamaha Series 9000 (recording custom) set.

Just curiosity. I bought it new but have ZERO recollection of what it cost back in early 1983.

Thumbs up Re: 1980's Yamaha Drum Price List

Well since I came up empty, I dove into the REALLY old receipts and found gold!

I found the original 3-30-83 recipient for the four piece shell pack. $1074.00. That's $2,766.64 in 2019 dollars. Sweetwater has the current RC 4 piece shell pack going for $3,699.99. So it looks like new Yamaha Recording Custom drums are about 34% more expensive than they were 36 years ago, adjusted for inflation.

The Tama Mastercraft Steel 14x6.5" snare bought about a year later was $162.00
