Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute 4-Piece Drum Set - 10J/12J/15/22- Plum
Maple drum shells have long been the standard choice for wooden drums and this Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute 4-Piece Drum Set - 10J/12J/15/22- Plum meets and exceeds 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 standard depths of the 10”x7.5” Yamaha ATT1010J and 12”x8” Yamaha ATT1012J rack toms offer the longest sustain of any of the Yamaha Custom Absolute offerings. This depth makes playing these Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute drums very easy and fun.
The YESS-mounted 15”x13” Yamaha ATT1015 tom, which Yamaha calls a “floating floor tom”, allows the drum to resonate more freely due to the absence of legs. This drum offers a tremendous rumble with fat attack and decent punch. Yamaha drummers rave about the 15” tom.
When you take these drums 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.
This Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute 4-Piece Drum Set - 10J/12J/15/22- Plum was also made in Japan by the skilled craftsmen and craftswomen of the Sakae Rhythm Company whom manufactured all 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, and yet a brand-new, made in China Yamaha Maple Absolute Hybrid drum set in a generally same size configuration has a minimum advertised price of $3,179.99 from online and in-store music dealers.
The toms have new heads top and bottom- Remo Ambassador Coated on top and Remo Ambassador Clear on bottom. Bass heads are factory.
