Used by some of the biggest Drum Corps.
This Yamaha Field-Corps Quint kit includes a 6", 10", 12", 13", and 14" multi-tom Set, and a comfortable Carrier. The multi-toms deliver a pure, focused tone that is maximized by a deeper, more balanced set of multi-toms. The Tube Carrier included is the optimal carrier for comfort and adjustability for these multi-toms.
Yamaha Field-Corps Quint Set
These toms are equipped with a lug that utilizes an arch-shape design, which allows the shell to vibrate freely thus delivering greater tone. The Field-Corps multi-toms are also equipped with a 2.3mm thick, steel UltraHoop rim that is specially designed by Yamaha. Its profile protects the bearing edge from mallet sweeps, which is especially important as the rim height lowers.
The multi-toms also utilize a high-strength aluminum reinforcement ring inserted just below the bearing edge to maintain shell integrity—especially when high-tension tuning is used.
All Yamaha marching multi-toms are made using Yamaha's patented Air-Seal System which ensures that the shells start round and stay round: an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone.
The 45-degree bearing edge allows each drum to speak clearly creating precise articulation.
The 8-ply birch shell on the 6" multi-tom maintains shell integrity without a reinforcement ring and clearly projects upper register tuning. The 10", 12", 13", and 14" drums have 6-ply birch shells for enhanced mid-range tones. A high-strength, aluminum reinforcement ring inserted just below the bearing edge maintains shell integrity. This exclusive Yamaha design allows for extreme, high-tension tuning without the risk of warping.
Additionally, since the wood bearing edge of the drum, not the reinforcement ring, contacts the drumhead, a quality transfer of vibration energy occurs offering a pure and consistent sound.
Enhanced Maximum Tonal Projection (MTP) cut offers an articulate sound and a focused fundamental—perfect for precise projection of tone in competitive marching situations. Extensive research into the cut has resulted in a design that delivers maximum performance from the shell while providing optimum balance between each of the toms. The Enhanced MTP multi-toms are 1" to 1.5" deeper than previous Yamaha models.
The 5.4mm steel tension rods provide easy, consistent tuning without adding unnecessary weight. Double steel washers allow for a smooth tuning adjustment at any tension level.
The 2.3mm steel UltraHoops with unique inward profile help protect the bearing edge from mallet sweeps. The rims also ensure true tuning and shape retention, even under extreme tension and heavy rim shots.
Field Corps Tube Carrier
The Tube Carrier features an ergonomic lightweight design. This patented design is the optimal carrier for comfort and adjustability. It is adjustable to fit the smallest student to the largest. Its Aluminum belly plate is lighter and stronger than traditional materials. The aluminum tubes allow infinite torso height adjustment and tow-in adjustment (angle front to back of tubes near the shoulders). Shoulder Rotation adjustments can be made to the camber (left and right). The adjustable back bar facilitates easy shoulder adjustment with back bar support.
