Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak 22” 5-Piece Drum Shell Pack - UZU Magma Sunburst
Some of Yamaha’s finest shells in a custom configuration - only at Wembley Music Centre.
The Yamaha Live Custom series has always struck an amazing balance between tone, power and projection, but this Hybrid Oak model takes those properties to new levels and masterfully balances them to a standard previously thought unattainable. This Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak 22” 5-Piece Drum Shell Pack is a set of extremely dynamic, richly-toned shells with a powerful attack - and Wembley Music Centre can offer this kit in a boutique configuration designed to really broaden your tonal scope. Unlike the Live Custom Hybrid’s off-the-peg configuration, this kit comes in the following sizes: an 8 x 7” rack tom, 10 x 8” rack tom, 12 x 9” rack tom, 16 x 14” floor tom and a 22 x 16” bass drum.
The shells derive their enhanced tone and expressive voice to Yamaha’s 7-ply Oak/Phenolic sheet hybrid shell construction. The concept - first employed by Yamaha’s PHX and Absolute Hybrid Maple kits - centres around the use of a dense phenolic sheet contained within two sheets of Oak ply. This technique improves the shell's dynamic range and increases its attack and projection. The shells are also equipped with classy and sophisticated dark silver hardware that accentuates the shell finish perfectly. Yamaha’s exclusive Absolute Lugs, 2.3mm Dyna Hoops, YESS III tom suspension mounts and bass drum claw hooks are all perfectly matched for the best aesthetic and optimum functionality.
The YESS III tom mount features an improved design that reduces shell choke more than ever before, opening up the shells sonic properties and allowing it to sing and ring in the fullest, loudest voice possible. The 22 x 16” bass drum is armed with die-cast hooks with cleverly designed insertion plates that significantly reduce the possibility of rattle and buzz. The toms are kitted out with 2.3mm thick steel Dyna Hoops that, together with a complement of clear Remo Emperor heads, offer an extremely tight, sharp and articulate response.
The Yamaha Live Custom Hybrid Oak Shell Set’s bass drum features yet another new brilliant innovation known as Bass Enhancement Weighting. The system is simple but very effective; additional weight is put on the interior of the shell at specific points to help bring out certain low-mid frequencies and enhance the bass drums power and projection. These studded weights are designed to match the aesthetic of the Absolute lugs and blend in with the rest of the kit’s hardware.
If all of the aforementioned innovations and high-end properties aren't enough for you (they should be!!), this kit's sumptuous finish ought to make your mind up for you and have you clamouring to hit the buy now button. These shells are finished using a traditional Japanese process known as “Uzukuri”, a painting and polishing technique that brings out the natural beauty of the Oak’s grain like no other. Modified specifically to apply to drum shell finishing, the Uzukuri process involves the multiple layering of painting and sanding certain parts of the wood grain to reveal its unique beauty. This amazing exterior finish is complemented by a black interior finish, completing this shell pack's spectacular look.
