YAMAHA MAPLE CUSTOM ABSOLUTE NOUVEAU 3 PIECE DRUM KIT, GREEN SPARKLE LACQUER (PRE-LOVED)
Here we have another stunning Pre-Loved find! Offered for sale here is a stunning Yamaha Absolute Maple Nouveau drum kit in specially ordered larger sizes. This kit was made at the Yamaha Japan Facility and features the (sakae constructed) thin Maple Shells and the Revolutionary design Nouveau quick release lug which in later years formed the basis for the current re-designed quick release lugs now found on the PHX and Hybrid series.
This kit is finished in a stunning sparkle lacquer colour and comes in some nice big Bonham-esque sizes,
The Absolute is an absolutely awesome drum kit, it took over from the Maple Custom series, it features 6mm 6 ply 100% Maple Toms and Floor Toms and 7 Ply, 7mm Bass Drums, the sound produced is great for the studio or live, great projection yet full and warm tone. Production of the kit came to a close when the Japanese factory (run by Sakae) ceased to produce for Yamaha. The new Chinese factory owned by Yamaha now produces the Absolute Hybrid which is the latest version of this series.
Other notable features on this kit are the famous Yamaha Air Seal System which refers to Yamaha's unique shell building philosophy, Aluminium DieCast hoops on the Toms and Floor Tom and YESS mounts on the Floor Tom Brackets.
