In order to best demonstrate the characteristics of the shell materials, special synthetic resin coating materials are carefully applied by hand. This thin but hard coating provides durability and stubborn resistance to changes in temperature and humidity. At the same time, it has a minimal effect on shell vibration, so the each drum produces all the power and nuance you put into it. Another special feature of your Vintage Coated* YAMAHA drums is that they'll gradually become richer and deeper in color over time. *The color change is a characteristic of this special coating material. Two new colors are also available, as well as the conventional colors: Vintage Natural and Vintage Black
4ply Maple shell sealed by our Air-Seal System that woods cut into plies are sealed together precisely with evenly distributed air pressure and 6ply reinforced Maple shell (ring).
Triple Flange Steel Hoop (1.6mm)
To obtain a rich vintage sound we chose a triple-flange hoop with 8 tensioners for the 14-inch shell. The lower tension delivers a deeper, more open sound.
R3 60° In 40 years of product development, Yamaha has found four wood snare drum bearing edge designs that produce unique tonal character and depth. Sharp edges deliver sharper tone with excellent response and rounded angles produce a rounder, thicker tone. Varying the thickness of the radius top allows for further modification. Using different bearing designs on the top and bottom of the snare is also effective in modifying the tone.
Snare bed depth greatly influences snare effectiveness making it the most important factor in creating the snare drum sound. This model's snare bed is 2.7mm that offers greater snare sensitivity.
Sonic Hoop Reinforcement
In the past, reinforcement hoops were used to compensate for inadequacies inherent to old shell designs that would often cause the shell go out of round. Utilizing Yamaha's Air Seal System, it is virtually impossible for shells to go out of round. Our reasoning for using reinforcement hoops now is strictly a musical one. We utilize these hoops to bring out particular tonal characteristics, giving the drummer new and specific musical choices. When a shell is being created via our Air Seal System, the Yamaha gSonic Hoopshare being treated at the same time. In the end, this original process causes the hoops and shell to act as one unit as opposed to merely two pieces being glued together. This guarantees a sturdy reinforcement. Musically, it also produces a short sustain of the fundamental note, while also giving a rich and longer overtone.
H type (Release) and DC type (Butt).
Our lugs incorporate special lug receiving units, not springs, for seating tuning rods securely. The lugs casing are small in size, minimizing lug-to-shell contact, and incorporating nylon inserts that prevent tuning rods from loosening under heavy rimshots.
Hi-carbon steel 20 strands. (SN1420CP) *Snare Plate (Pat. Pend.) Yamaha snare plates offer superior snare to head contact due to the slight bend in their design. When the string is drawn tight, the edge of the patented snare plate is pulled upward putting the snare in full contact with the head. Snare plates in the CP series are made using a special bonding agent between the plate and the coil that provides greater durability and finer response compared to previous designs. Snare coils on CP series snare drums are now covered with a special new finish that allows more of the materialfs tone to come through. *Strong Snare Strings Nylon strings are covered with a nylon braid for maximum strength and durability.
