Limited Edition Yamaha 50th Anniversary Birdseye Maple Acoustic Shell Pack
2017 marks 50 years of undeniable quality, longevity and undisputed craftsmanship for Yamaha Drums. Inspired by Yamaha's celebrated Absolute Hybrid Maple Kit with strong Japanese undertones, Yamaha have adopted the Japanese ethos of wanting to deliver the courage and ability drawn from Japanese culture fused with the high quality outcomes the brand are known for. In so the Yamaha Exclusive 50th Anniversary Acoustic Drum Kit was born, a limited edition collector's shell pack that is dripping with timeless Yamaha beauty.
Yamaha have forged their way through the percussion industry since 1967 and have left behind a trail of unquestionable attention to detail, quality artistry and a queue of prestigious followers. This kit is undeniably representative of Yamaha's standing in the drumming industry over the last 50 years, an impressive standing considering they are a relatively young brand in comparison to other drumming industry heavyweights. The anniversary kit will always mark this monumental occasion and will hold a special laser cut 50th anniversary badge to signify its importance.
A beautifully unique, phoenix design engulfs the bass drum head and is complimented by a stunning exotic Birdseye Maple hybrid shell, finished in the dense, mesmerising Amber Shadow finish. Deliciously textured, the hybrid maple shell is an all purpose shell that provides excellent stick response and bends to a wide range of playing styles, perfect for a variety genres. Maple also has the ability to produce warm, rich lows and even amounts of highs and mids. A truly versatile sound that suits many different types of genre with an impeccable ability to perform wherever you place it. The fascinating Amber Shadow finish is classically traditional in it's appearance and is complimented by durable aluminium die cast chrome hoops, gold hook lugs and an impressive laser etched wood/aluminium hybrid Yamaha badge which accompanies each drum. All of these features combined make for a timeless feel which pays homage to the drum kits of 1980's and it has all the fantastic qualities too. Durable, dependable and down right special, this kit is a total one of a kind.
YESS III Tom Mounts are designed to reduce acoustic dampening, this lets the hybrid shell vibrate for longer, in turn generating an enhanced sound that is overly more powerful. It also allows for improved volume output and high sustain levels. Hook lugs have a polished, refined golden finish that matches perfectly with the Amber Shadow finish of the shell. Precise tuning, as well as quick and easy head replacement is easily achieved with these lugs. Included alongside this one of a kind acoustic drum kit is an embroidered 50th Anniversary Case Protection Racket case, this is only available within the UK and therefore we are very lucky to be able to offer this added bonus to you as well.
Luxury doesn't even come close, this acoustic kit is is beautifully crafted, but unfortunately it won't be around forever. Arriving in June 2017, there is only a limited number of these kits within the UK and in so we only have one of each finish available to buy. Yes you read right, this is the ONLY one we have, if you want it to be yours then you need to act on that impulse and get in touch with us. This impressively unique drum kit will not be around forever, once it's gone it's gone and you don't want to have to wait another 50 years for a kit like this!
