MB-6300 Power-Lite™ Series

6300 Series Field-Corps Bass Drums

For musical situations requiring exceptional sound in a lightweight design, Power-Lite Marching Bass Drums are an excellent choice. Shallow depths make carrying this drum easy. Sizes range from 16” to 28” covering a wide tonal spectrum.


The 6-ply birch shell is manufactured with the exclusive Air-Seal system. This provides durability for these lightweight drums, and helps ensure its warm tone with punch.

Air-Seal System Shells

All Yamaha bass drum shells and hoops are made using the Air-Seal System™ which ensures that 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.


Air Seal System bass drum hoops provide accurate tuning that is easily maintained by the lightweight, 10-ply birch and mahogany hoops.


All 6300 Series Bass Drums come with Remo Smooth White Ambassador bass drum heads.

Lug Casing

Zinc alloy lug casings with reinforced walls and webbing provide superior strength for high-tension tuning.

Claw Hook

Steel construction in a solid rib design of the claw hooks ensures shape retention while distributing tension over a wider area of the hoop, eliminating excess stress.

Nylon and Steel Washers

Nylon and steel washers on the tension rods allow smooth tuning at high tension.

Sound Impact Strips

Sound Impact Strips eliminate unwanted overtones, promoting a clear tone and making tuning easier.
