Yamaha 50th Anniversary
This limited edition shell pack is a celebration of a monumental landmark within Yamaha's history. The year 2017 marks the 50th anniversary for the brand and this shell kit features the high acclaim and standard of quality that the brand has come to represent. Yamaha's ethos stems from wanting to create authentic acoustic kits with courage and ability drawn from Japanese culture. With incredibly high attention to detail and unrivaled work ethic, the company has defined and influenced the makings of the modern drum kit. The absolute maple hybrid shell pack will forever bear the celebration of the year with a special laser-cut 50th anniversary badge.
Absolute Hybrid Maple
The attention to detail that brought Yamaha to 50 years is on show with the absolute hybrid maple shells. Yamaha focused on designing drums that would perform at any and all dynamic levels, no matter the genre. The maple shells provide an excellent response to the drummer's touch, whether hard of soft, to allow for incredibly wide playing styles. The next step was ensuring a classic appearance to fit any environment, matched with the durability to last. With the limited edition shell pack, the added gold lugs, amber sunburst finish and laser cut badge accentuate the special finish of the drums.
YESS III Tom Mount
Building upon the success of the Yamaha YESS IIm tom mount, the YESS III is designed to reduce acoustic dampening even further than its predecessor. This reduction allows the hybrid shell to vibrate for longer and as a result, generate higher sustain levels and volume.
Bearing Edge Shape
The bass drum within this shell set features a bearing edge angle different to the one used on tom and snare shells. A 30°/R1.5 edge is used on the bass dram to ensure a fully optmised tonal balance across the whole set. The result is an end tone with a deeper, more powerful sound.
Gold Hook Lugs
The hybrid shells deliver effortless head replacement that is both quick and easy, precision tuning, and even high-tension tuning. The base of the hook lugs are designed with a small footprint to maximise tone output and for the 50th anniversary edition, feature a refined gold finish.
