OVERVIEW

Unique lug design and all-around excellence.

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.

All Maple Shell
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.

Lugs
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.

The Gold Standard in Drums

By why-man5

Without a doubt Yamaha drums are best in the business. Many of innovations in drum industry came from Yamaha (i.e., mounted floor toms, locking hi hat clutch, hide away boom arms, compression fittings on stands, stackable cymbals on stands, etc..), and now their excellent new nouveau lug. And for the guy that said "Mapex and Pearl are better brands"....GIVE ME BREAK!!!! Neither one of those brands can hold a candle to Yamaha. If you want the best buy Yamaha! and BTW these drums more than rock on Rock!

Absolute Bass Drum

By Tom-nUrNP

I've played on this bass drum since the late 90's, this kick is the best sounding kick I've been able to find. It's great in the studio too. This kick is great for rock and worth the price.

Nice, but c'mon

I think this is probably one of the best sounding bass drums out there. I just wouldn't ever pay this much just for it though. You could buy a whole double bass set from better brands like Mapex or Pearl for about as much as this costs. Although, in consideration, I do like Yamaha's line of drums and I'm sure this is a great sounding bass drum, but way too pricey for my taste.

I have played this drum a few times, however I don't own it. The main thing i notice is the way the air travels through it, because of the shell being so absorbant you can get a nice airflow throughout the drum. I would only reccomend this drum for jazz players and maybe some light swing, stay away from it if you are playing anything remotly close to rock though, it isnt very good for that. I also think the price is very high but its worth It overall.
