Sound nice and all, butterscotch looks nice, but I sort of have to think the market doesn't need this and I'd rather they bring back the Club Customs.

Looks awesome. The price is a little on the spendy side for me (especially for a shell pack w/o snare) but a used one for 8-900 would be a good deal.

I like how they have 10 lugs on the bass drum. It's subtle but I think it makes a drum kit look much more professional and legit than an 8-lug.

For a second I read the color as "Chocolate Stain" and thought wow what a terrible idea...

Price seems ok, but in a way I wouldn't be surprised if Stage Customs ended up being more my thing. Now there's a lot of drum for your money.

Watching that Drumeo vid it's clear that this is about offering a different professional level instrument that fits a market with generally lower income.

My personal taste is clear, and expensive, but I guess they do offer something different for way less than their other top end choices. Would be fun to be able to try all the Yamaha stuff side by side.
