* While the Yamaha website lists a Yamaha snare drum, Larry does use the Brady 14 x 8 Sheoak Block for the VERTIGO tour.

** Also, while the Yamaha site lists Larry as playing Yamaha drums "since 1977", he did play Tama FiberStar drums during the "Boy" and "October" era's - and a Premier Olympic Kit before that.

Yamaha Beech Custom Absolute characteristics

Beech has the attack and presence of maple and the bottom-end punch of birch. Beech Custom Absolute has the best of both worlds and is the most versatile woods available.
