Absolute Hybrid Shells
Much of the Flagship Yamaha Phoenix Technology is now being used in the new Absolute Hybrid series.
The shells are constructed with a single ply of the Wenge wood Pronounced (When-GAY) with Maple plys on the inside and outside of the drum.
Wenga is a hard dense african wood that was previously only available in the Yamaha Flagship Pheonix sereis drums.
Now this Technology is available in the Yamaha Absolute Hybrid kit.
The New Absolute Hybrid utilizes the same Yamaha Phoenix PHX Hook Lugs that the Pheonix series offers.
Snare drum - 6.2mm 7-Ply (3-Maple/1-Wenga/3-Maple) 3.0mm Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops 45 Degree Bearing Edge
Bass Drum - 8mm 9-Ply (4-Maple/1-Wenga/4-Maple) 30 Degree Bearing Edge
Toms/Floor Toms - 6.2mm 7-Ply (3-Maple/1-Wenga/3-Maple) 3.0mm Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops 45 Degree Bearing Edge
Hybrid Maple Shell
The new Absolute Hybrid Series inherits the hybrid shell technology found on our flagship PHX Series. On Absolute Hybrid shells, the design consists of a core ply of wenge a very hard and heavy wood native to Africa, sandwiched between plies of maple, well known for its clear tone. This hybrid design delivers a drum tone that plays rich and clear across the full dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo.
Hook lugs offer quick and easy head replacement, precision tuning, and can readily handle 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 YESS IIm tom mount, the YESS III reduces acoustic dampening even further. Allowing the shell to vibrate more freely, the YESS III mount brings out more of the shell’s natural sustain and volume.
Low-Mass Tom Holder Base
The tom holder’s light weight and small footprint allows the bass drum shell to vibrate more freely.
Optimized Bearing Edge
The bearing edge angle on the bass drum differs from the angle used on the tom and snare shells to optimize tonal balance in the drum set. A 45º/R1.5 edge is used on the snare and toms to a balanced tone; while a 30º/ R1.5 edge on the bass drum shell brings out more low-end tone for a deeper, more powerful sound.
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.
Vintage finish interior
Shell interiors are coated with our exclusive "Vintage Natural" finish for enhanced tone and refined looks.
3.0mm Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops
Aluminum die-cast hoops deliver a strong tight sound with an extraordinary attack and decay.
