Yamaha's Field-Corps multi-toms deliver a pure, focused tone that is maximized by a deeper, more balanced set of multi-toms. These toms are equipped with a lug that utilizes an arch-shape design which allows the shell to vibrate freely thus delivering greater tone. The Field-Corps multi-toms are also equipped with a 2.3mm thick, steel Ultra Hoop™ rim that is specially designed by Yamaha. Its profile protects the bearing edge from mallet sweeps, which is especially important as the rim height lowers.
The multi-toms also utilize a high-strength aluminum reinforcement ring inserted just below the bearing edge to maintain shell integrity—especially when high-tension tuning is used.

Yamaha maple shells have been proven through the numerous DCI championships and High Percussion awards won by Yamaha supported marching ensembles, has been chosen for the shells. Original Yamaha high-pressure high-pressure Air-Seal System forming technology creates maple shells that exhibit sharp attack and wide dynamic range for complex, expressive sound.
High Tension Tuning Supported
In addition to an aluminum insert ring inside the shell (on all except the 6” model), large washers are provided below the lugs to allow high-tension tuning. Shell deformation is prevented, and pitch remains stable.
Extra Deep Cut
The shell is notably deeper than normal, for stunning power and projection.
Air-Seal System Shells
All Yamaha marching multi-toms are made using Yamaha's patented Air-Seal System which ensures that the shells start round and stay round: an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone.
45 Degree Bearing Edge
The 45° bearing edge allows each drum to speak clearly creating precise articulation.
8" 10" 12" 13" 14" Shells
7-ply 6” and 8” drums and 6-ply 10” to 14” maple shells enhance mid-range tone. A high-strength, aluminum reinforcement ring inserted just below the bearing edge maintains shell integrity. This exclusive Yamaha design allows for extreme, high-tension tuning without the risk of warping.
Additionally, since the wood bearing edge of the drum, not the reinforcement ring, contacts the drum head, a quality transfer of vibration energy occurs offering a pure and consistent sound.
The 7-ply maple shell on the 6" multi-tom (MQ-8306) maintains shell integrity without a reinforcement ring and clearly projects upper register tuning.
Aluminum Die-Cast Lug Design
The light, die-cast aluminum lugs are designed with a unique arch-shaped center. This Yamaha original design decreases surface to surface contact between the shell and lug permitting the shell to vibrate freely and resulting in greater tone production. This in turn results in greater tone production. The 8300 lug design are 50% lighter and 12% stronger than the 8100 lug design. The arched lug design allows the shell to breathe while reducing weight.
5.4mm steel tension rods provide easy, consistent tuning without adding unnecessary weight. Double steel washers allow for a smooth tuning adjustment at any tension level.
The 2.3mm steel Ultra Hoops with unique inward profile help protect the bearing edge from mallet sweeps. The rims also ensure true tuning and shape retention, even under extreme tension and heavy rim shots.
Field-Corps multi-toms are available in multiple configurations including small and large trios, quads, quints, and standard sextets as well as the new Yamaha SUMO toms. The SUMO configurations feature a flat-cut 8" tom that can be used to replace the 6" drum in both quints (MQT-80234) and sextets (MQT-680234). SUMO toms are available only with the RM-TVHBPT Biposto Tenor Carrier and RM-68 6/8 spacer set by May™.
Yamaha Remo Clear Pinstripe Crimplock Head
This head is an ideal choice for high tension tuning, bringing out the full resonance of the shell.
New Badge Design
A sophisticated badge design adds a touch of class to the new series.
Audio & Video
Enhanced durability is achieved by using a wrap for shell coloring. The wrap also subdues superfluous overtones, resulting in a clean, soft tone.
