The heart of any drum is the shell, and Yamaha's method of hand-crafting shells produces the strongest, most consistent drums available. Yamaha drums feature a staggered diagonal seam to ensure a shell that starts round, and stays round and will not require any putty filler in the bearing edges to fill voids between the plies. The Air Seal System of clamping the plies in the mold provides the same pressure 360ç around the shell to make sure the glue is evenly distributed. This is key to the consistency of Yamaha shells. Yamaha Absolute Maple series drums shells are crafted using North American maple. Maple produces a round, warm tone with a good mix of overtones from high to low. Our maple drums have a wide dynamic range and long sustain. Back by popular demand, the sleek, classic design of the original Absolute lug is now the standard lug in the Absolute series. This lug anchors to the shell at the nodal point using a single bolt, reducing the number of holes in the shell. The small size of the lug allows it to make very little contact with the shell, and reduces the amount of shell vibration that is dampened.
