Yamaha invented a new sound with the Absolute Hybrids. I didn't think it was possible for them to do that and still maintain that signature Yamaha sound and feel. The Hybrids have raised my esteem of this brand even further, and I didn't think THAT was possible!

Yamaha Absolute Hybrid at Drum Center of Portsmouth

When we set about designing the Absolute Hybrid Maple, we started with the most important aspect of a musical instrument, the sound. We wanted these new drums to perform at all dynamic levels. From a whisper to a thunder, a drum should respond to the drummer's touch, allowing them to express their every emotion. We then considered other characteristics of a great drum. It should feel good to play, it should be a thing of beauty to the eye, and has to withstand the rigors of years of performance.

Over three years, we built prototypes that were put to the test, enlisting the help of our roster of artists in virtually every genre - some of the most critical ears in the industry. We think you will hear that we succeeded in creating an instrument that drummers can express their every thought, every feeling and creative idea that comes to them. An instrument that is a thing of beauty to the ears and the eyes and that will last for generations.

Features:

Hybrid Maple Shell

The new Absolute Hybrid Series inherits the hybrid shell technology found on our flagship PHX Series. On Absolute Hybrid shells, the design consists of a core ply of wenge a very hard and heavy wood native to Africa, sandwiched between plies of maple, well known for its clear tone. This hybrid design delivers a drum tone that plays rich and clear across the full dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo.

Hook Lug

Hook lugs offer quick and easy head replacement, precision tuning, and can readily handle 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 used on the tom and snare shells to optimize tonal balance in the drum set. A 45º/R1.5 edge is used on the snare and toms to a balanced tone; while a 30º/ R1.5 edge on the bass drum shell brings out more low-end tone for a deeper, more powerful sound.

Vent Hole

The vent hole plays an important role in performance, since it affects not only the sensation of hitting the drum (the impact) but also the initial sound, sustain and tone. Through an exhaustive series of prototypes, YAMAHA has discovered the optimal number and vent hole position depending on the air capacity of each shell. Particularly, vent holes contribute to the enhancement of tone colors in mid-range to low-frequency sounds, as well as the control of sustain.

Vintage finish interior

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

3.0mm Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops

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