I brought in my favorite one-of-a-kind Yamaha Carbon Fiber kit to compare it to the PHX. I could not believe my ears during the playback comparison - all the PHX shells sound so warm and wicked. They harmonize together as a chorus, and the resonance mid-low range, especially in the FTs and BD, is wonderful.
The newest from Yamaha, the PHX series is out-of-the-box, Slammin'! Hear the Slammabilities!
The toms are second to none.
From the moment I played the PHX, it became quite apparent that they were very special. I could feel the music and hear the melodies so easily. Beautiful.
The richest, fattest, most focused tone in drums I have ever heard. We tested them, in the studio against everything (being a Birch fanatic!), and they Rock!
I was completely blown away by the power, tone and depth that the drums have. They respond to the slightest touch in a beautiful way. I look forward to playing these drums a lot more in the future.
Amazing! This is a high-end kit.
I thought nothing would ever please me musically other than my Birch Absolutes ... until I heard the PHX. They add a new ingredient to the mix of musicality. I mean, the sound connection between the racks and floors is very smooth, and the floor toms are especially amazing!
