This Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple Shell Pack in Red Autumn finish comes with a sonically complimenting Yamaha Recording Custom 14×5.5in Aluminium Snare.

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.

Recording Custom Aluminum 14×5.5in Snare Drum

Developed in collaboration with drumming legend Steve Gadd, the Yamaha 14″ x 5.5″ Recording Custom Aluminum Snare Drum includes a handful of special features that set it apart from just another aluminum drum. When you open the box, the drum inside will be equipped with 20-strand snappy snare wires, which is fairly typical. However, you’ll also find a special 10-strand set of wires in the box made to Steve’s preference – it’s really a 14-strand set with four inner wires cut out for a crisper sound! The center bead along the equator of the shell is fixed on the outside to give the drum more openness and fullness. A heavy-duty Q-type strainer gives you smooth, stable snare action and it just feels solid. Aluminum gives you a tastefully bright tone that doesn’t ring quite as much as other metals, so you don’t have to dampen to get the right sound.


  • 1.2mm Aluminum Shell
  • Newly designed one-piece lug
  • Developed with Steve Gadd
  • Includes Special 10-Strand Snare Wires (Extra)
  • Center Bead Fixed to Outside
  • Heavy-Duty Q-Type Strainer
  • Bright, Articulate Tone
  • Requires Little Dampening

Please Note: Stands and Cymbals are not included with this shell pack.

    Great service as always. Been buying almost all my gear (new and used) at Drummers Only since 2010. Numerous … More reasons but mainly the service and advice. I've dealt with most of the staff over the years, but mainly the now manager Chris who is a top lad and great asset to the store/company. Whether buying a new kit or a pair of sticks, he always takes time to give advice and support. This time it was a snare head; great advice on both selection and the black art of fitting & tuning. It's sounding sweet, thanks as always for the great service and support. THANKS CHRIS AND ALL AT DRUMMERS ONLY

    A fantastic store with a great range of anything to do with drumming, I had help from the lovely staff … More there who guided me on what I was looking for, as well as a kit to test them out prior to purchase!I highly recommend coming here for any new gear you are looking for, or a good guide on what you have in mind!

    I'd been after an 18" floor tom for a while.Bought a second hand PDP. To be honest it doesn't … More even look second hand. Really happy with it especially as it was practically half the price! I'm in the recording studio tomorrow so it'll be being put to good use. Already rehearsed with it and it sounds pukka! Deep and booming. Can't recommend Drummers Only enough. Really happy and as always your goods are shipped prompt with lots of protection.

    Ordered a Yamaha electronic kit for my son for Christmas. Great service in store, delivered promptly. … More However the snare drum was a bit loose on the frame and the guys not only ordered a new part but delivered it to my home personally. Great guys, great service and great products.
  • Avatar Damiano D ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    Great drum shop has a huge selection and the customer service is decent. The guys in the shop are cool … More although they seem to be a carbon copy of each other. A little diversity in terms of personality wouldn't go a miss.
