Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple Shell Pack – Drummer’s Review

Here’s our review of a set of a Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple shell pack, featuring…

  • 20″ x 16″ bass drum,
  • 12″ x 8″ rack tom,
  • 14″ x 13″ floor tom,
  • 16″ x 15″ floor tom,
  • 14″ x 6″ matching snare drum,
  • Vintage Natural finish (outside & inside),
  • 7-ply hybrid maple shells – 1-ply Wenge sandwiched between three inner and outer ply of maple (8mm bass drum, 6.2mm toms & snare),
  • Hook lugs,
  • YESS III rack tom mount,
  • Remo heads fitted throughout.

Yamaha says…“Tonal requirements vary among drummers, differ with dynamics, and change, from band to band, song to song, moment to moment. With the Absolute Hybrid Series drums, Yamaha has succeeded in addressing this, with a drum set that possesses an extraordinary degree of expressive power, allowing drummers to pursue a level of expression that perhaps they’ve not experience before in their other drums. These drums offer a wide dynamic range that allows them to respond accurately to each and every stroke, and follow changes in dynamics, nuance, and touch, letting you play what you want to play.”
