Oak Tone Made For The Stage
Unveiled at NAMM 2019, the Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak kits are optimised for the live performance.
Featuring special hybrid shells constructed from 7 plies of oak and phenolic, the Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak kit delivers accentuated attack and projection.
Producing the cut needed to pierce through the mix in live situations, this Yamaha kit also delivers the punch and power to ensure a substantial depth of tone.
Alongside the powerful tom sound, the kit also features a bass enhancement weight system designed to ensure a kick sound filled with tight focus.
The striking finish of the Yamaha Hybrid Oak series is achieved with the use of a traditional Japanese Uzukuri process that perfectly emphasises the natural beauty of the oak grain.
The ideal choice for live performance, the Yamaha Hybrid Oak Fusion shell pack delivers in terms of sound and style.
Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak 4 Piece Fusion Shell Pack Configuration:
- 10” x 7” Rack Tom
- 12” x 8” Rack Tom
- 14” x 13” Floor Tom
- 20” x 16” Bass Drum
Featuring a central band of grey colour that graduates to darker black towards the edges of the shells, the Yamaha Live Custom Kit utilises a traditional Japanese finishing process to achieve an accentuated blacken grain look.
Named Uzukuri, this unique finishing technique starts with the sanding of the soft areas of the wood grain before covering the whole shell in a thin layer of black paint.
Once the black paint has infiltrated the grain of the wood the shells are then sanded again to leave only the paint in the grain before a final finishing coat is applied.
Perfectly accentuating the natural beauty of the oak grain, this stunning process produces a drum kit with a striking aesthetic to match its stunning tone.
Dark Silver Hardware
All drums in this fusion shell pack are fitted with Yamaha’s exclusive Absolute Lugs to add a sleek and streamlined touch of sophistication to the kit appearance.
Perfectly complementing the striking finish of the shells, all the hardware features a dark silver finish.
The interior of the shells is also finished in black to further tie together the whole aesthetic of this beautiful drumkit.
Phenolic and Oak
Inspired by the hybrid shells of the flagship Yamaha PHX and Absolute Hybrid Maple drum series, the Live Custom Hybrid Oak kits are constructed from a blend of oak wood and phenolic acrylic.
The 7 ply shells feature central sheets of dense phenolic surrounded by outer plies of oak to deliver a robust, durable drum that produces a superb range of tone.
While oak is characterised by its soft highs, strong mid-range and warm low-end to deliver big punch and quick decay, phenolic offers a warm response across all frequencies to ensure powerful attack and presence.
The balance of the two materials serves to produce a drum sound with an enhanced dynamic range capable of producing the cut and projection needed for live performance.
All of the shells are finished with 45 degree bearing edges which further aid the cutting attack and articulation of the stunning oak hybrid drums.
The combination of oak, phenolic and 45-degree edges works to deliver a kit sound packed with warm low-end power and quick, cutting articulation to ensure you have ultimate impact on stage.
Tight, Focused Bass
In addition to the big powerful tone of the toms, the bass drum of the Yamaha Live Custom Oak shell pack has been fitted with a unique bass enhancement weight system to ensure a kick sound filled with punchy focus.
Featuring a design styled on the Yamaha Absolute lugs, the bass enhancement weights are studded to the interior of the bass drum at the lug points and work to attenuate low-mid frequencies.
The result is a bass drum that produces a wonderfully tight and well-focused tone to ensure powerful projection in live settings.
Sound Aiding YESS III Mount
The natural evolution from the popular YESS II tom mount, the new YESS III model further helps the natural resonance of the toms.
Rather than drilling into the tom shells which negatively affects the drums resonance, the YES III mount attaches to the tom via the hardware to avoid contact with the shell.
This means the shell is allowed to vibrate more freely which helps to bring out more of the shell’s natural sustain and volume, ensuring a substantial, tone-filled tom sound.
The Yamaha Hybrid Oak drum kit also comes complete with the Yamaha TH945B tom holder to provide convenient and secure mounting of the rack toms from the bass drum.
Die-Cast Bass Hooks
The 20” bass drum of this Yamaha kit is fitted with die-cast hooks which have been designed to deliver noise free function through the use of insertion plates.
Providing a strong, secure and reliable hold of the bass drum hoop to ensure your kick drum stays in tune, the die-cast hooks are fitted with insertion plates to protect the hoop against the hooks as well as ensuring noise isolation between the hook and hoop.
The result is stable bass drum tuning, a protected bass drum hoop and noise free playing.
Compact Floor Tom Brackets
The 14” x 13” floor tom of this Yamaha Live Custom kit is fitted with compact tom brackets which feature wing bolts specifically designed to clamp the floor tom legs tightly without causing damage.
Delivering a hold you can rely on, these floor tom brackets have been created to help save time on stage and to deliver optimum decay control to ensure your floor tom sings with robust sustain.
Dyna Hoops and Remo Heads
Each of the toms in the Yamaha Hybrid Oak Rock drum kit are fitted with 2.3mm Dyna Hoops and Remo drumheads.
The thick steel of the Dyna Hoops provides a tighter sound and sharper response from the drums, ideal for live performance, while the Remo Clear Emperor batter heads and Remo Ambassador resonant heads deliver deep sound and superb durability.
The bass drum is fitted with a Remo P3 Ebony bass batter head and logo printed resonant head.
Delivering stunning style and superb tone, the Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak Fusion shell pack is the ideal choice for live playing.
The blend of oak and phenolic in the hybrid shells serves to ensure a sound filled with power and articulation ideal for cutting through on stage.
The use of the traditional Uzukuri finishing process provides a drum kit with a stunning aesthetic that matches its superb tone.
