YAMAHA ABSOLUTE HYBRID MAPLE, 4 PIECE DRUM KIT, POLAR WHITE (PRE-LOVED)
This Yamaha Hybrid has been touched with some greatness. This is the actual kit which Dave Weckl played for the Buddy Rich Memorial at Ronnie Scotts. Still fitted with the Remo Ambassador Coated heads Dave selected for the show, the drum heads have the yellow marks from Dave's Vic Firth Evolution Sticks. A great opportunity to get some rare sizes and a little piece of drumming history for a great deal!
There is a lot of demand for the Hybrid series and there's no surprise why! The Hybrid is Yamaha at it's professional best, bags of tone, wide open tuning range, great projection and surprising warmth from a Maple kit, we assume thats the Wenge at work! If you haven't heard one yet, come down and give it a try!
The kit is finished in Polar White (originally launched on the Phoenix) which has a striking laser blue reflection in the light, quite hard to catch on camera but a really stunning colour on stage.

What Yamaha Say:
When we set about designing the Absolute Hybrid Maple, we started with the most important aspect of a musical instrument, the sound. We wanted these new drums to perform at all dynamic levels. From a whisper to a thunder, a drum should respond to the drummer’s touch, allowing them to express their every emotion. We then considered other characteristics of a great drum. It should feel good to play, it should be a thing of beauty to the eye, and has to withstand the rigors of years of performance.
Over three years, we built prototypes that were put to the test, enlisting the help of our roster of artists in virtually every genre--some of the most critical ears in the industry. We think you will hear that we succeeded in creating an instrument that drummers can express their every thought, every feeling and creative idea that comes to them. An instrument that is a thing of beauty to the ears and the eyes and that will last for generations.
