Welcome back after a few months without my pc...
Anyway I have an opportunity to buy Yamaha Oak Customs second hand, unfortunately I have no idea how they sound and have no way of checking them out...
Could anyone write how does the oak compare to maple or birch?
Thanks

I have played them in the past...and I am actually trying to sell my Pearl Masters maple kit to get them...

They are VERY punchy and cutting...they oddly have a nice warm tone though...they sort of embody the best characteristics of birch & maple...I really dug them.
