Traditionally a difficult material to work with, Yamaha have succeeded in forming Oak into drum shells. Using their Air Seal System technology they have managed to work with this very hard wood. The result is an impressive response, and a huge bass sound that sets this apart from other woods such as birch, maple and beech. These drums also deliver a solid fundamental, and superior tonal quality. This range also makes use of Yamaha’s new technologies such as the YESS Mount system, which allows toms to attach to a holder without there being a hole in the shell, thus minimizing any detrimental effects on their resonance. There are several finishes and colours available, giving a range of choice from natural oak, to a glamorous sparkle.
