Air Seal System
All Yamaha wood drums have one thing in common. Yamaha's craftsmen create every drum shell using their exclusive staggered diagonal seam Air Seal System just as they have since 1967. Each two or three-ply master ply is cut to length to very precise tolerances with a diagonal cut on each end. The diagonal seam in the drum shell will not separate, eliminating the need to fill gaps in the bearing edge with filler putty. These plies have glue applied and are then put into the mold by hand, one master ply at a time. The craftsman then inserts an air bag into the mold and inflates it, clamping the shell with even pressure 360 degrees around. This process creates a drum shell that is strong, starts round, and stays round for many years.
60 Degree Bearing Edges
The Yamaha Tour Custom Tom has 60-degree R2 bearing edges. This bearing edge has a rounder profile so that there is more shell to head contact. This gives the drum clarity in the low-end fundamental and added warmth.
YESS Floor Tom Brackets
Tour Custom floor toms use the YESS (Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System). The floor tom brackets are small, minimal contact mounts that are located at the nodal point. They hold the legs securely in place without restricting the vibration of the drum shell.

Comments about Yamaha Tour Custom Floor Tom:
This tom is amazing. It creates wonderful warm tones that really cut but also blend in a way. They sound great on any style of music. I played them with a coated emporer and it sounded amazing. I would definitely recommend this tom.
