Created from the sound up.
The Absolute Hybrid Series from Yamaha inherits the hybrid shell technology found on the flagship PHX Series. On Absolute Hybrid shells, the design consists of a core ply of wenge a very hard and heavy wood native to Africa, sandwiched between plies of maple, well known for its clear tone. This hybrid design delivers a drum tone that plays rich and clear across the full dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo. A 45º/R1.5 edge is used on this snare for a balanced tone.
Hook lugs offer quick and easy head replacement, precision tuning, and can readily handle high-tension tuning. Lug bases are designed with a small footprint to maximize tone output from the hybrid shell. Aluminum die-cast hoops deliver a strong tight sound with an extraordinary attack and decay.
