Experience Yamaha's Highest Level of Craftsmanship - The Yamaha PHX Series 4 Piece Shell Pack in Turquoise Fade W/Chrome Hardware


At Yamaha, each drum's evolution begins with a prototype. Under a completely new concept, the PHX (pronounced "phoenix") series is the pinnacle of excellence in this prototyping process. Handcrafted by our expert technicians, it is rooted in over 50 years of history, tradition, experience and technology in an all-out pursuit of the ultimate in drum craftsmanship and sound.


PHX

Yamaha re-defined the high-end drum set when they introduced the Recording Custom in the 1970s. With the PHX, they set the bar even higher by creating the ultimate musical instrument for drummers.


Hybrid Shell Construction

With the wealth of knowledge amassed over the years, as the preeminent maker of musical instruments, Yamaha wood specialists have discovered new materials that provide optimal drum performance.

Jatoba, a Brazilian wood and the hardest material in the PHX hybrid shell, is positioned as the core ply and center note of the drum. It is surrounded on either side by layers of kapur, a Malaysian hard wood. North American Maple, which had long been considered a classic, high-quality drum shell material because of its hardness and viscosity, is actually the softest wood in the shell construction; maple is the outer and inner plies of the shell.

This is the process used to complete the hybrid shell, in which the stiffness of the shell shifts from the center toward the outside: the woods are hardest at the center and get softer toward the outer surfaces in either direction. This results in an "excitation structure" that maximizes the shell's performance. The excitation structure increases the head's vibration to its full extent, achieving a sound unlike anything you’ve heard before. It produces an effect in sound waves similar to rippling waves caused by a pebble dropped in water.


Y.E.S.S. II Shell Mount System

The Y.E.S.S. II shell mounting system acts as a shock mount system for the drum, allowing for optimal shell vibration.

Utilizing a unique rubber insert and a maple wood plate, the Y.E.S.S. II mount is primarily located at the nodal points (where no vibration occurs) causing the resonance to stay within the shell as opposed to transferring through the hardware and being stifled.

In larger tom sizes, the rubber inserts are also positioned on the shell where overtones are present to help produce the appropriate mixture of sustain and overtone control.


Hook Lug System

The hook lug system has emerged through the progression of the nouveau lug, which was an innovation in the drum lug design.

Rather than positioning the hook lug at the nodal point, Yamaha placed it at the area of the shell that produces undesirable overtones, thus muting them and allowing for an unobstructed, richer fundamental tone.

The combination of the hook lug system (muting the unattractive overtones) and the Y.E.S.S. II mount system (opening up the drum's fundamental tone) provides an unmistakably pure and naturally EQ'd sound. The organic tone of each drum is clear and perfectly defined like never before.


Bearing Edge Shape

To control the drum's tone and articulation, the PHX floor tom, tom-tom and bass drum shells each use different types of bearing edges.

All bearing edge angles are set at 30 degrees. However, the radiuses of the bearing edges differ to gain optimum acoustic performance from the shell.

Additionally, a secret treatment process is used to ensure that each edge is finished to a perfect smoothness. This guarantees a very easy and wide tuning range.


Vent Holes

The number of vent holes influences both the drum’s timbre and projection. PHX Series drums are designed with one to ten vent holes, depending upon the drum’s dimensions. By varying the number of holes, particularly on larger shells, the drum’s sustain length, amount of mid-bass tone, and playing comfort can all be fine-tuned.


R-Version Bass Drums

New R-Version bass drums (without tom mounts) have been added to the PHX lineup. This option provides optimum flexibility for drummers who place great importance on bass drum tone.


A Range of Options

In addition to the qualities of tonality and functionality, Yamaha has paid special attention to the values of interior and exterior beauty.

The exterior of the PHX shell is available in classic maple or exotic burled ash finishes. Further, the hook lugs and aluminum die-cast hoops are available in either gold or chrome options.

Experience the ultimate combination of unparalleled beauty with brilliant color finishes, including the fresh and unique textured paint.
