Default Yamaha Definitive shells

Anyone hear own a set of these, that can share your thought regarding the overall quality?..Im about to trade for a 12,16, 22 and know little about them, other than they appear to be very well put together

Wayne!

Since you're trying to stump us, I'll include the link where you brought this up over at DFO!!!

I'll admit that I was stumped to, until I found out that this was a line not available in the US!

I've not heard of them but I've never heard bad Yamaha shells either.

LOL; not trying to stump anyone but i cant believe Yamaha would introduce a kit NOT available to the US. This is the very first Yammy kit i,ve ever owned, only because i traded for cymbals, but im curious about it because they claim its their attempt to capture that vintage sound...we shall see.

wayne! I completely agree that this fine line of Yamaha drums should have been introduced in the US as well. I don't exactly know how their marketing department works and what determines what, and what not, will be sold in the US market. All I can say is that I LOVED my Maple Custom Absolute kit from 20 years ago. Simple and beautiful lugs and I always liked the YESS tom mounting system. NEVER had an issue with it! In fact, I used the YESS system to upgrade my PDP X7 kit!
