The Yamaha Gigmaker 5-Piece Drum Set is a lower-end Yamaha kit that is a great value in terms of quality for price. It’s great for a beginner and it’s pretty darn good for an intermediate.
This kit is in great condition. It was bought for my 15 year old son (a few years ago), and it’s been his drum kit in his room since. He’s been in marching band for years so hasn’t played the kit all that much. But he just got a new kit and wants to sell this kit as part of the way to pay for his new one. I say all of this to say that it has not been broken down or set up a lot, or even played all that much really (not for 3 years). It still has the original heads on them and they sound good. Though new heads never hurt, it would be fine to play and gig with as is.
This Yamaha kit Includes a 20″ kick drum, 10″ and 12″ mounted toms, a 14″ floor tom, and 14″ x 5-1/2″ wood snare. This set also includes the mounting hardware to mount the two rack toms.
The Gigmaker kick drum shell is 7 plies of basswood/poplar. The snare, rack toms, and floor are 6 plies of basswood/poplar. Each drum is equipped with triple-flange, 1.6mm steel hoops and pro-quality lugs. Eight lugs on the kick and snare. Six lugs on the rack and floor toms.
From the company, “The springless design of these popular Yamaha drum lugs is structured to effectively eliminate unwanted noise.”
