These drums are an excellent choice for professional percussionists, as well as college level symphonies and orchestras. This series produces a deep, rich sound with exceptional projection, due to its nine-ply maple shell with a darkwood satin finish. The addition of steel hoops creates precise and stable tuning to ensure a perfect sound that lasts. The line is equipped with Remo Nuskyn Heads. Sound design and quality were the top two drivers for the Yamaha product designers. The addition of two more sizes, an anti-rotational slip measure on the stand, new noise control features on lug castings and tension rods and a maple shell truly make this concert bass drum an instrument that will be the only choice for professional percussionists. Available for this series is an improved bass drum stand along with accessories such as covers and drop cloths made of Cordura. The new stand features a locking mechanism with an improved rotational mechanism allowing the drum to lock into one playing position. This new system enables the drum to have a firm grasp at any angle. Covers and drop cloths are sold separately.
