This double-headed concert tom and stand set for concert use.
The proportional sizing, oak shell and YESS III Mount System give the Yamaha Grand Series Concert Toms a unity in tone and abundant sustain, resulting in extraordinary range of expressivity.
After exhaustive study to determine the best size for this model specifically designed for concert use, Yamaha adopted a size structure based on the proportional relation between diameter and depth, which is œFor 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.
Solving a conventional problem that tonal color and length of sustain differ between toms, the 9000 Series offers a perfect unity in tone and sustain 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 that is required in orchestral music.
The oak 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. Oak shell offers a fat, dense tone and sharp, open resonance. In addition to these characteristics, longer sustain and quick response is provide by YESS III Mounting System, achieving a perfect balance between tone clarity and abundant sustain. Even when playing a high-speed passage or roll, you can deliver the slightest nuance to your audience.
This set also includes one medium-weight, double-braced WS865 concert stand.
