Vintage 70’s Yamaha 9000 Da Pre- Recording Tour Custom Hybrid 14 X 18 Bass Drum:
This exceptionally rare kick drum is all original, except for the Remo batter head. (The matching toms were sold a few years ago.) It was used primarily for recording, but taken out for special-occasion gigs.
For it’s age, this drum is in very good used condition. It’s ideal for gigs or recording. The shell is exceptional - sound and integrity. Too, the chrome and black wrap are very good. Wrap is mirror-like and tight - same with hoop inlays. Chrome still shines.
No overt issues of concern. The most clear signs of use are the heads - still tune up great.. But, there are lots of marks, some small dents and tape residue on the Remo Powerstroke batter head. Too, there is one weather-scab on a t-rod. Otherwise, expect plenty of micro-scratches, smudges, mild weathering and general signs of use. Great used drum, just not pristine is all.
Scrutinizer note: A microphone hole was “cut” into the original logo resonant head. It’s a bit crude - no splits though. Still, a kick ring was added to prevent tears.
Yamaha Spec’s posted in last picture. This is a 10 (20) lug drum. With the steel hoops, and sturdy spurs & mount, it’s relatively heavy.
