A traditional concert tom set that fits in a budget and a classical concert setting.
Featuring proportional sizing, birch shells and the YESS-II-m Mount System, Yamaha's CT-8000 Concert Toms Set outputs projection and pleasing tone, resulting in a sharp and impressive expressivity.
Sizes and Systems
Eight traditional sizes of single headed concert toms are offered in three traditional set-ups: CTS-6802B (6", 8", 10", 12" with two stands); CTS-0234B (10", 12", 13", 14", with two stands); CTS-3456B (13", 14", 15", 16", with two stands).
New Size Structure
Yamaha adopted the same size structure as the flagship CT-900 Series, based on the proportional relation between diameter and depth, which is “For every 1 inch increase in diameter, increase the depth by 1/2 inch”. As a result, Yamaha designers successfully achieved the classical tone and lingering depth which is fundamentally different from that of existing concert toms. The CT-8000 Series offers solid attack and brilliant tone as a whole set, which gives you a higher level of expressivity. This series also has a wide tuning range from high to low register to allow you to produce various types of sound.
YESS Mount System
Providing minimum mount-to-shell contact, the Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System (YESS) delivers increased resonance plus maximizes dynamic range and sustain. Mounts are attached at the drum's nodal point where shell vibration is least effected.
Air-Seal System Shells
The birch shells are produced utilizing the Air-Seal System. This process ensures that shells start round and stay round; an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone.
1.6 mm., triple flange steel rims
Triple-flanged hoops offer traditional sound, yet are easy to tune and enhance low-end partials.
The concert tom systems come with the WS-865A heavy-duty stand. The stand features double braced legs for stability.
