All shells of the 8300 Field-Corps Series are 7-plies of maple for a precise balance of deep, resonant tones and solid, punchy attack. This shell configuration not only sounds great it has a much lighter carrying weight than its all-hardwood counterparts. Ample power and punchy bass is provided in relatively slim shells that are manageable and mobile, adding solid power and presence to the bass line. These drums all have a 14" depth and an air hole size and location that's been individually optimized for each drum size.
These shells are made using the Air-Seal System which ensures that shells start round and stay round: an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone. 9-ply maple round edge hoops are utilized to deliver the strength necessary for maintaining consistent, uniform tuning.
Specially processed tension bolts provide increased strength that can easily handle high-tension tuning. 5.4mm steel tension rods provide easy, consistent tuning without adding unnecessary weight. A 45 bearing edge allows each drum to speak clearly creating precise articulation. A sophisticated badge design adds a touch of class to the new series.
The light, die-cast aluminum lugs are designed with a unique arch-shaped center. This Yamaha original straight-line design decreases surface to surface contact between the shell and lug permitting the shell to vibrate freely, which in turn results in greater tone production. Lug designs are 26% lighter and 60% stronger than previous models.
The claw hook design delivers greater tuning stability. This unique feature reduces the stress on the tuning bolt under high-tension situations. This ensures easy turning when making tuning adjustments. The new wide-body claw hook design also reduces hoop damage, while delivering greater tuning stability.
All 8300 Series Bass Drums come with smooth white REMO PowerMax bass drum heads. Sound Impact Strips eliminate unwanted overtones, promoting a clear tone and making tuning easier.
Includes a Yamaha Contour Hinge MonoPosto Marching Bass Drum Carrier with ABS.
