Tomyco needs these drums for a studio, not for gigging and everyday playing. While the Pro M's will obviously have a more dynamic maple tone to them, they're not going to sound all that much better than the Yammies. I've owned both kits and although the mapex had a wider tuning range, they didn't sound all that much better than the Stage Customs. They're both intermediate kits, they both use the same types of rims, they're both made my reputable and trustworthy companies.... BUT... the yammies offer a lot more customization.
Being that you're running a studio and you'll have many different types of artists using your kit, having 7 drums will allow you to offer a lot of options for drummers to choose from. You also won't have to buy hardware saving you up to $500 depending on how much/ how good quality you want. This should factor in nicely for buying cymbals, right?
Anyways... I think it comes down to going with the mapex's maple shells or the customization and hardware in the yammies.
If both kits are in the same shape, I'd vote for the yammies.
