Pro Percussion Drum Sets

Custom Absolute Nouveau drums in some of the new finishes available for 2004.

It starts with the selection of wood. The finest woods that can be found. From there it goes to the hands of Yamaha's craftsmen; people who have a deep respect for the natural qualities available in wood; (Japan is known for it's wooden structures, some of which are over 1000 years old). It's their skill and dedication that has led to the development of some of the best technological developments in the music industry today.

Yamaha's Air-Seal System transforms plies of select wood into perfectly round drum shells, enhancing the tonal quality of the wood. Combined with hardware, created by Yamaha's craftsmen to work flawlessly and enhance the tone of the wood, you get drums of exceptional quality.

As a total musical instrument maker and with it's drum division in business for over 36 years now, Yamaha has dedicated themselves to creating the best instruments possible. Instruments they are proud to make. Instruments you can be proud to own.

Yamaha is continuing it's commitment to innovation with the introduction of the Custom Absolute Nouveau line (premiered at NAMM 2003). Absolute Series drums allow you to select the material of your choice (maple, birch, beech) and even mix different materials for snares, bass and toms. Also new is a single bolt ultra compact lug that allows the entire rim and head to be detached without removing the tension rod. This gives head changing speed & no more lost washers. The new absolutes also give you 45 color options. Other features: new bass drum claws, legs, aluminum die cast hoops & additional air vents. We will cover all these new features in depth as the drums become available.

Pro Percussion carries the complete line of Yamaha Kits.
