Maple / Wenge Blend

Taking inspiration from the flagship Yamaha PHX series, these Absolute drums feature shells with a hybrid shell construction.

Each of the shells feature a Wenge core ply that sits between plies of maple, with the bass drum constructed at 8mm thick and the toms at 6.2mm.

The central Wenge ply offers a strong foundation while the maple plies that surround it provide all-purpose tone with an even response across all the frequencies.

The two woods combined deliver a drum sound filled with rich, clear highs, warm lows and a full dynamic range.

Capable of reproducing the dynamics, nuance and touch of your playing, the Yamaha Absolute allows every expressive detail of your performance to be heard.

Optimised Edge

Yamaha have used two different bearing edge cuts in the creation of the Absolute Hybrid Maple in order to achieve optimal tonal balance around the drum kit.

The bass drum features 30 degree bearing edges while the toms have 45-degree edges.

The 30s on the bass drum work to bring out more of the low-end tone for a deeper, power-filled kick sound, while the 45s on the toms deliver great balance and strong projection.

Classic Walnut

Delivering a rich deep brown aesthetic, the shells of this Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple offer a super sleek appearance.

The lusciously dark colour of the shells is complemented perfectly by the all chrome hardware to produce a look filled with classic sophisticated style.

Absolute Lugs

Featuring a unique aesthetic combined with smart functionality, the Yamaha Absolute lugs have a hook design to accommodate quick and easy head changes, precision tuning and high-tension settings. The bases of the lugs have also been specifically designed with a small footprint to minimise shell contact allowing maximum tonal output from the hybrid shells.

Aluminium Die Cast Hoops

Each of the toms in this 5-piece Yamaha Absolute Maple kit are fitted with 3.0mm aluminium die cast hoops. The blend of a thicker hoop size, lightweight aluminium and die cast design works to produce a strong, tight sound that provides robust attack and decay for a clean, precise response.


The next incarnation of the YESS II mount, this 3rd generation has been designed to further reduce the acoustic dampening of the shells. Enabling the shells of the rack toms to vibrate more freely, the YESS III mount allows the drums to achieve their natural sustain and volume.

Low-Mass Tom Holder

The bass drum of this Yamaha kit is fitted with a low mass tom holder base to deliver strong and reliable support for the rack toms.

The base features a lightweight design and small footprint in order to allow the bass drum shell to vibrate freely. The result is strong support for your toms without jeopardising your kick sound.

Vent Hole

Often overlooked by the average drummer, the vent holes of your drums not only affect the feel of striking a drum, they also influence the initial sound, tone and sustain.

This is why Yamaha have painstakingly researched the optimal number of vents and their ideal position on the drum depending on the air capacity of the shell.

Using this knowledge to aid the sound of the drums, Yamaha have strategically placed their vents to help enhance the tonal colour of the mid and low frequencies and to also help control sustain.

Interior Finish

All of the shells in this Yamaha 5-Piece shell pack feature a coating of an exclusive vintage natural finish in order to enhance the tone and refine the look of the drums.


Combining classy aesthetics with tight responsive tone, the Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple is the perfect choice for the adaptable drummer.

The combination of maple and wenge serves to deliver drum shells that produce well balanced tone and a responsive feel for a truly expressive sound.

The classic look of the rich walnut finish and all chrome hardware provides a truly smart aesthetic, while the sound aiding hardware ensures you achieve the ultimate in sustain and resonance.

Add to that the optimised bearing edges, vent hole technology, hook lugs, low mass tom holder and YESS mount and this Yamaha kit was made to let the shells sing.
