The fusion size is suitable for a variety of styles. With a sweet matching wood snare and a 16" floor tom for thunderous lows. The hardware is functional and sturdy. Air-Seal System shells are perfectly round and of uniform thickness, delivering superior tone quality and exceptional durability. This method is used on every Yamaha shell, from entry level to professional series drums.
The Nouveau lugs are made from a proprietary fiber-reinforced composite for light weight and resonance. The lug hooks onto a post that is mounted to the shell at the nodal point so there is dampening of the shell at the tuning points. Nouveau lugs also allows you to change heads in about half the time since the tension rods don't have to be removed to remove the head.
Stage Custom Advantage Nouveau shells are constructed of an outer ply of oak, 6 plies of Philippine mahogany, and an inner ply of falkata. The shells produce a warm tone with a low fundamental with excellent attack and sustain.
Mounted toms and floor toms equipped with YESS mounts
Yamaha's YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) mounting system is found on all Stage Custom Advantage Nouveau 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 2 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 on the resonance of the shell.
Universal size toms
The 10" and 12" mounted toms are sized to provide enhanced resonance and flexibility in setting up. This is especially advantageous for younger players that need to set their toms up in a lower position.
Bass drum spurs
Sturdy, yet simple in design, the spurs hold the bass drum in place under even heavy playing. They are height-adjustable with a drum key and for more stability there are spikes that can be exposed. The spurs fold up and out of the way for transport, but are marked with angle indicators so that you can set them at the same angle every time.
Ball clamp and 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 2 toms as well as a cymbal holder to provide a wide variety of set up possibilities.
Matching wood snare
A matching 5-1/2" x 14" snare drum completes the high-end look of the kit. This versatile size fits into any musical situation. You can tune it up high and it will cut through loud music, or tune it down for a wet, funky sound.
