2/20/2009 [Drums]Absolute Series Drums in Birch and Maple Add Innovations From Other Drum Lines
Absolute Series Drum Kit In Burgundy
"The innovative new hook lug and redesigned YESS mount continue a long tradition at Yamaha Drums of taking key features and adapting them to other drum lines," says Dave Jewell, marketing manager, Yamaha Drums. "Now, these improvements are available to a wider range of drummers."
The YESS mount enhances sustain by shock-mounting the toms with dense rubber spacers between the shell and the mounting plate. The deeper bass drum provides a bigger sound by pushing more air without having to resort to a 24-in. diameter drum. The hook lug makes changing heads much easier and increases the drum's tuning range.
Absolute Series Drum Kit In Luminous White
The kits come in several exciting colors, including Burgundy, Caramel Sparkle, Blue Ice Sparkle, Deep Blue, Luminous White Sparkle (which glows in the dark), Solid Silver and White Grape Sparkle.
