Air Seal System for Superior Shells
The use of the original Air Seal System is, in part, responsible for the superior quality found in Yamaha drum shells. Select woods are cut into plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. The resulting shells are perfectly round and of uniform thickness delivering superior tone quality and exceptional durability.
The warm characteristic that maple offers is enhanced with the Air Seal System process. Select maple wood is cut in plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. This process ensures that every drum shell is in round and of uniform thickness. It also provides superior tone quality and durability.
The revolutionary design of the quick-release, minimal-contact lug casings found on the Absolute Nouveau series are fixed to the drum shell by snapping onto a post that is anchored at the nodal point. This allows the drum to vibrate freely. They allow the heads to be changed in less time and reduce the risk of losing tension rods or washers. A special nylon insert prevents tension rods from becoming loose during play.
Aluminum Die-Cast Hoops
The aluminum die-cast hoops offer the benefit of accurate tuning at a much lighter weight than zinc die-cast hoops that choke the drum. They allow the drum to open up much like a triple-flanged hoop.
Long found on Yamaha's high-end drum kits the original YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) mounting system is used on all Absolute Maple Nouveau toms. This rod clamp system allows attachment of the drum to the tom holder without the need of a hole in the drum shell for the rod to pass through. The YESS clamp is attached to the shell at the nodal point with 2 bolts so as to allow the shell to vibrate freely without degrading the shell's dynamic range and sustain. The nodal point is the location on a shell with the least amount of vibration allowing for the mount to have minimal affect to the resonance of the shell.
