Nice kit. I like how the lugs go down the side of the drums. It seems to imply power!

But it's not a double bass kit - it's double pedal.

I'm sorry I'm failing to see your point, did something I say make you think it was double bass?

As for the Legacy Ride: I`m jealous. ;-)
That is an incredible Ride, at the moment one of maybe just a few Sabian Rides I really like.

oh, and in music school we have got a Power V, but with normal lugs, not with full length lugs...nice sound.

Are those the rubber beaters? I have the felt ones and they're not giving me as much "punch" as I like. I figure that the rubber ones have to be the best of Tama's beaters, because the felt are too 'standard' and I've heard many complaints about the wood beaters falling apart.

Yeah they're the rubber ones, they are very punchy and seem durable (I've had them about a year with no problems.)

I play what ever I'm currently listening to, which right now is mostly post-hardcore and metalcore type stuff. (The Bled, KsE, Alexisonfire, Protest the Hero, Every Time I Die, ect.) I was in a post-hardcore band but we broke up because our bass player moved. That was disapointing because at my school there's barely any kids who like that kind of music. All the "metal" kids where I live listen to Slipknot and Korn.

I also play alternative rock like Modest Mouse, Wilco, 311, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine and System of a Down.

The ride is one of the seven wonders of the world as far as I'm concerned, it has great stick definition and a powerful dark tone when crashed.

Power V? To be honest, I've never seen this series before. If it didn't say YAMAHA accross the bass drum, I would have bet money that it's a Tama Superstar. I mean, look at the lugs. Identical, almost. But either way it's a very nice kit. Great pedals, Great cymbals.

Happy (belated) birthday! Nice kit! I just got a Power V Special for my birthday as well. It is an awesome kit. I am thinking of getting Aquarians all around for it. This thing was hardly played and still has the original heads on it I think.

Looks Great! I especially like the setup... the way the toms are off to the left. Very easy to play. Also love the pedals.

Hey Man,

Tis good to see another very happy Yamaha player. And i'm a big fan of the Sabian Vault series. Great Sound on them!!

Couple of questions in regards to the Yammie double pedals??

Is it just a personal preference to use the iron cobra beaters or didn't the supplied yamaha's live up to your expectations.

I just recently bought a new yamaha kit and stuck with my DW5000 pedals but was seriously contemplating the yamaha's (you know, "try" & keep the kit within 1 brand)

Have you played a few different brands of pedals and if so, how do the yamaha's rate in comparison??

Cheers

Looks great I used to hate those kind of long lugs but I really like them now its a great look on the right kit. How do you like those heads?

Also your unknown crash has very similar look to my AAX stage crash as far as lathing goes, close tight lathe lines.

I tried Iron Cobras, Eliminators, DW 5000, and DW 9000 as well as the Yamaha's when I was shopping around. My favorite were the 9000s but they were out of my price range, and the Yamaha's came close in smoothness and control.

I would try first though, some people hate direct-drive. And I wouldn't blow cash just for the brand if you are happy with the 5000s.

The heads are awesome. A breeze to tune and they don't lose their tuning easily. The texture of the snare head flaked off pretty fast though, since then Ive replaced the snare head.

I hate long lugs too, except on my kit :)

Good question! I tried mounting the 12" tom off of the bass drum and clamping the 10" to a cymbal stand, but I found it difficult to get the toms at a comfortable height and angle. The stand allowed better options for both the toms and the 16" crash.

That's awesome that you're in a metalcore band...keep it up!

Looks great to me...I think that's the one I originally looked at but it was out of stock so I went with the Gibraltar.

I'm not sure, there's practically no information online about the Power V. I read somewhere that it was most likely Phillipine mahogany.

I would assume its Phillipine Mahogany or whatever else the early Stage Customs have used.

The Yamaha Power V and V Special were Made in England by Yamaha, when they trying to help get Premier off the ground again in the late 80's to the early 90's. Power V and V Special were the Stage Customs of that time. They changed a few things on the drums and in the line up, THEN came the name Stage Custom. They sent production back overseas again.

My school had 2 black and 1 red that had black painted interiors, which was stock on some Power V or V Special drums. Not a bad sound, but not the greatest either.

We ran Coated Emperors over Clear Ambassadors, Powerstroke 3 over stock and Coated Emperors on the steel snares that came stock with the kits.

The red one got stolen, but I ended up finding it for my school at a later date on a popular Canadian retailer website. I'm not too sure if they recovered it or not.
