Compared to the original Hipgig, drum diameters on the Hipgig Sr. have all been increased to offer drummers greater tone and performance in a still-compact, easy-to-transport drum kit. The bass drum diameter has increased 2 inches, from the original 16" to 18", while the 14" and 12" tom toms and the 13" snare are all one size larger than before. The seven-ply shells are made of birch and Philippine mahogany using Yamaha's original Air Seal System. Yamaha CS-641 cymbal stands allow the use of larger cymbals and provide greater setting variability.
Air Seal System shells are made with select woods cut into plies, positioned with staggered diagonal seams, and sealed together with evenly distributed air pressure. The resulting shells are perfectly round and of uniform thickness, delivering superior tone quality and exceptional durability.
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 to allow 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.
The 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 2 toms as well as a cymbal holder to provide a wide variety of set up possibilities.
