Air Seal System for Superior Shells
The use of the original Air Seal System
is, in part, responsible for the superior quality found in Yamaha drum shells. Select woods are cut into plies, positioned
with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. The resulting shells are perfectly
round and of uniform thickness delivering superior tone quality and exceptional durability.
The warm characteristic that maple offers is enhanced with the Air Seal System process. Select maple wood is cut in
plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. This process ensures
that every drum shell is in round and of uniform thickness. It also provides superior tone quality and durability.
The revolutionary design of the quick-release, minimal-contact lug casings found on the Absolute Nouveau series are
fixed to the drum shell by snapping onto a post that is anchored at the nodal point. This allows the drum to vibrate freely.
They allow the heads to be changed in less time and reduce the risk of losing tension rods or washers. A special nylon insert
prevents tension rods from becoming loose during play.
Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops
die-cast hoops offer the benefit of accurate tuning at a much lighter weight than zinc die-cast hoops that choke the drum.
They allow the drum to open up much like a triple-flanged hoop.
