Yamaha Temple Drum Kits The new Yamaha Temple kits honor temples located in Kyoto, Japan. But they also celebrate the 40th year of fine drum handcrafting by Yamaha. One kit honors the Temple of the Golden Pavilion and the other commemorates the Temple of the Silver Pavilion.

The new Golden Temple and Silver Temple sets conform to the original specifications of the famous Recording Custom Drum Set introduced in 1976 and considered to be the most recorded kit in history.

Both the Golden Temple and Silver Temple sets feature 100% Hokkaido birch shells from northern Japan. With 7-ply bass drum and 6-ply toms, this wood is said to help produce a deep fundamental and low-end punch that is ideal for recording. Both the Temple Gold and Temple Silver are hand-buffed to a lustrous sheen with chrome lug casings on the Golden set and black anodized on the Silver. Each kit features Yamaha's precision-machined hi-tension lugs for noise-free control due to their spring-less casing design.

The bearing edges on both sets are cut at sixty degrees with a round profile, which gives the drum heads more surface contact with the shells said to enhance their low fundamental and provide a deep, warm tone with a punchy attack.

The Temple Gold kit comes in two configurations: a 6-piece drumset with 22-inch bass drum and two floor toms at $7,999 MSRP; or a 5-piece drumset with 20-inch bass drum and one floor tom for $5,999 MSRP. The Temple Silver kit also comes in two configurations: a 6-piece drumset with 22-inch bass drum and two floor toms for $7,999 MSRP; or a 5-piece drumset with 24-inch bass drum and two floor toms for $7,499 MSRP.
