Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple 14x13 Floor Tom In Solid Black Finish - Absolute Expression Without Compromise

Created from the sound up, this Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple floor tom is an absolute expression without compromise.

Hybrid Maple Shell

The Absolute Hybrid series inherited the hybrid shell technology found on our flagship PHX series. Absolute Hybrid shells consist of a core ply of wenge, a very hard and heavy wood native to Africa, wedged between plies of maple, known for its clear tone. This hybrid design delivers a rich, clear tone across a full dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo.

Hook Lugs

Hook lugs offer a quick and easy head replacement, precision tuning and can readily withstand high-tension tuning. Lug bases are designed with a small footprint to maximize tone output from the hybrid shell.


An evolutionary step up from our Y.E.S.S. II, the Y.E.S.S. III further reduces acoustic dampening, which allows the shell to vibrate more freely bringing out more of its natural sustain and volume.

Vent Hole

The vent hole plays an important role in performance, since it affects not only the sensation of hitting the drum (the impact), but also the initial sound, sustain, and tone. Through an exhaustive series of prototypes, Yamaha has discovered the optimal number and vent hole position depending on the air capacity of each shell. Particularly, vent holes contribute to the enhancement of tone colors in midrange to low-frequency sounds, as well as the control of sustain.

3.0 mm Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops

Aluminum die-cast hoops deliver a strong, tight sound with an extraordinary attack and decay.

Vintage Finish Interior

Shell interiors are coated with their exclusive "Vintage Natural" finish for enhanced tone and refined looks.
