Maple drum shells have long been the standard choice for wooden drums and these Yamaha Maple Custom Absolutes meet and exceed that reputation with flying colors.

Since the introduction of the 1st generation Yamaha Maple Custom drums in 1991, Yamaha maple drums have been a favorite among professional and amateur drummers alike.

The “universal” depth of the 13”x10” Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Nouveau ATT1513U tom drum provides the best balance of attack and sustain of any of the Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute offerings. This depth makes playing these Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute drums very easy and very fun. In combination with the lightweight die cast aluminum rims the toms produce a very focused sound that is both traditional and modern.

When you take this drum out of the box, you immediately understand what you are holding. The craftsmanship, the weight, the look- you know you are holding a quality instrument. An heirloom, even. You are overcome with a significant feeling of joy and pride. 

This 13”x10” Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Nouveau ATT1513U tom drum was also made in Japan by the skilled craftsmen and craftswomen of the Sakae Rhythm Company which manufactured all high-end Yamaha drums for 30 years prior to 2013 when Yamaha moved their entire production capabilities to China. As most experienced drummers will tell you, this has a profound impact on the drums’ residual value.

The exquisite White Marine Pearl finish of this 13”x10” Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Nouveau ATT1513U is not available on any of the new Yamaha drum offerings.
