Description & Specs

All-Birch Shell
In addition to their punchy power, birch shells are known to reduce unwanted noise and prevent interference when drums are set up side-by-side. The unique, sonic characteristics of birch wood ensure that each stroke is clearly delineated, making it the ideal choice for recording environments.

New Weighted High-Tension Lugs
The revamped modern design retains the traditional essence of the Recording Custom. However, in order to maximize the attenuating properties of the birch wood, we increased the weight of the lug, further enhancing the artist's expressive power and reducing undesirable noise from the shell without using a mute. This ensures optimum sustain for the core sound, producing a crisp, articulate tone.

Lifted-Style Bass Drum
We reduced interference from the floor to maximize the resonance of the shell, and we increased the length of the pedal beater rod, centering it precisely to ensure absolute accuracy during performances.

This lifted bass drum produces a more punchy sound and accentuates the sound produced in the core of the shell.

R1.5/3-Degree Bearing Edge
While testing many combinations of shells, Steve Gadd opted for 30-degree bearing edges to deliver a sharp response. The shells have a wide tuning range. They respond well to different head choices and are easy to tune.

Y.E.S.S. Mount
Y.E.S.S. mounts are designed to minimize contact between the shell and the mount to deliver a wider, dynamic range and longer sustain. The Y.E.S.S. mount does not interfere with drum placement or head changes.

Floor Tom Brackets
The open-type floor tom bracket includes wing bolts and is designed to clamp tightly on the leg without damaging it. This saves time on stage and delivers optimum decay control.

Die-Cast BD Hooks
Bass drums are fitted with T-handles and die-cast hooks providing quick tuning adjustments and noise-free function through the use of an insertion plate.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
