Sound, Sustain, and Tone, TheYamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple 4-Piece Shell Pack - Solid Black

The Absolute Hybrid series inherited the hybrid shell technology found on their 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. The shell interiors are coated with their exclusive "Vintage Natural" finish for enhanced tone and refined looks. 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.

  • Hybrid maple shell (center wenge ply)
  • Hook lug
  • Y.E.S.S. III mount system
  • Vent hole
  • Optimized bearing edge shape
  • Inner vintage finish

An evolutionary step up from their 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. And with the Low-Mass Tom Holder Base, the tom holder's small, lightweight footprint allows the bass drum shell to vibrate more freely. The aluminum die-cast hoops deliver a strong, tight sound with an extraordinary attack and decay.
