AM2F57 Absolute Custom
(Drum Kits - Acoustic)

Drums that give you the sound you need, whenever you need it. Tonal requirements vary among drummers, differ with dynamics, and change, from band to band, song to song, moment to moment. With the Absolute Hybrid Series drums, Yamaha has succeeded in addressing this, with a drum set that possesses an extraordinary degree of expressive power, allowing drummers to pursue a level of expression that perhaps they've not experience before in their other drums. These drums offer a wide dynamic range that allows them to respond accurately to each and every stroke, and follow changes in dynamics, nuance, and touch, letting you play what you want to play.

All Maple Shell

The warm characteristic that maple offers is enhanced with our Air Seal System process. Select maple wood is cut in plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. This process ensures that every drum shell is in round and of uniform thickness. It also provides superior tone quality and durability. The Maple Custom Absolute features 6-ply floor tom and tom shells, and 7-ply bass drum shells that produce a warm, full tone sound with excellent sustain.

Tom Toms and Floor Toms Equipped with YESS Mounts

Long found on our high-end drum kits our original YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) mounting system is on all Maple Custom Absolute toms and floor toms. This rod clamp system allows attachment of the drum to the tom holder without the need of a hole in the drum shell for the rod to pass through. The YESS clamp is attached to the shell at the nodal point with two bolts so as to allow the shell to vibrate freely without degrading the shell's dynamic range and sustain. The nodal point is the location on a shell with the least amount of vibration allowing for the mount to have minimal affect to the resonance of the shell.

Ball Clamp & Triple Tom Holder

This round ball clamp has long been a fundamental part of Yamaha System Drums. Made of super-hard resin, the ball is held firmly in place with a steel plate and large wing bolt. While providing ease of operation, this system also delivers total freedom in setting and superior stability. The triple tom holder accommodates two toms as well as a cymbal holder to provide a wide variety of set up possibilities.

Floating Bass Drum System

Height adjustment on the pedal side of the bass drum is possible with the pipe post stabilizer. Use of this system ensures that the beater makes contact at the center of the head. The stabilizer fits into a pipe clamp on the underside of the drum that allows quick and easy adjustment of the height. The post is equipped with a memory clamp that ensures subsequent settings will be quick and precise every time, while a pair of supports provides added stability.
