Luxury-class kick for working drummers.
The Yamaha Phoenix Maple Bass Drum uses an 11-ply hybrid shell, with woods that get progressively harder from the center ply to the outer plies. The center ply is jatoba; this very hard wood anchors the fundamental of the shell. Sandwiched on either side of this is kapur, a wood that's in the mahogany family and adds warmth to the sound of the drum. The inner and outer plies are maple. Maple rounds out the tone adding high and mid frequencies to the shell.
All drums have a 30° bearing edge, but each individual drum type uses a unique profile. Bass drums have a sharper edge cut toward the outer plies. This gives the kick attack and shortens the decay. This combination of shell composition and bearing edges makes Phoenix what many Yamaha drum artists describe as "the most musical drums [they] have ever played".
