New Absolute Hybrid Maple Drum Set

Larry Mullen (U2) and Manu Katché (Peter Gabriel) are regularly spotted in the world’s largest stadiums playing Yamaha’s PHX drum kit. Taking the same hybrid concept as PHX, Yamaha have gone on to develop a North American Maple and Wenge drum shell, resulting in an astonishingly powerful and versatile drum that will inspire. Absolute Hybrid Maple drums’ additional features include PHX style hook lug, a new piston-drive snare strainer, hinged floor tom leg brackets, a low-mass bass drum bracket and the same style of spurs first introduced on the Live Custom drum set. Yamaha’s staggered diagonal seam and Air-Seal System shell-making process produces strong, consistent shells.

Great video from Namm 2014.
