When Yamaha set about designing the Absolute Hybrid Maple, they started with the most important aspect of a musical instrument, the sound. They 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. They 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.
About the Hybrid Maple-Wenge-Maple Shell:
The Absolute Hybrid Series inherits the hybrid shell technology found on the 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. As the wenge resonates, the maple carries it further giving you the maximum sustain out of the shells.
