Absolute

Hybrid Maple Shell

The Absolute Hybrid series inherited the hybrid shell technology found on our flagship PHX series. Absolute Hybrid shells consist of a core ply of wenge, a very hard and heavy wood native to Africa, wedged between plies of maple, known for its clear tone. This hybrid design delivers a rich, clear tone across a full dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo.

Hook Lugs

Hook lugs offer quick and easy head replacement, precision tuning and can readily withstand high-tension tuning. Lug bases are designed with a small footprint to maximize tone output from the hybrid shell.

Optimized Bearing Edge

The bearing edge angle on the bass drum differs from the angle on tom and snare shells. A 45-degree /R1.5 edge is used on the snare and toms to achieve a balanced tone, while the 30-degree/R1.5 edge on the bass drum creates a low-end tone, for a deeper, more powerful sound.

Vintage Finish Interior

Shell interiors are coated with our exclusive "Vintage Natural" finish for enhanced tone and refined looks.

3.0 mm Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops

Aluminum die-cast hoops deliver a strong, tight sound with an extraordinary attack and decay.
