Yamaha's Field-Corps multi-toms deliver a pure, focused tone that is maximized by a deeper, more balanced set of multi-toms. These toms are equipped with a lug that utilizes an arch-shape design which allows the shell to vibrate freely thus delivering greater tone. The Field-Corps multi-toms are also equipped with a 2.3mm thick, steel Ultra Hoop™ rim that is specially designed by Yamaha. Its profile protects the bearing edge from mallet sweeps, which is especially important as the rim height lowers.
The multi-toms also utilize a high-strength aluminum reinforcement ring inserted just below the bearing edge to maintain shell integrity—especially when high-tension tuning is used.
Maple shells with its performance proven through the numerous DCI championships and High percussion awards won by Yamaha supported marching ensembles, has been chosen for the shells. Original Yamaha high-pressure air bag shell forming technology creates maple shells that exhibit sharp attack and wide dynamic range for complex, expressive sound.
The light, die-cast aluminum lugs are designed with a unique arch-shaped center. This Yamaha original design decreases surface to surface contact between the shell and lug permitting the shell to vibrate freely. This in turn results in greater tone production. The 8300 lug designs are 50% lighter and 12% stronger than the 8100 lug design. The arched lug design allows the shell to breathe while reducing weight.
The key to superior comfort is better fit, and better fit depends on adjustability. MAY Contour Hinge Carriers offer the best sizing, flexibility and ergonomic design. By using hinge technology, these carriers become one with the player and remain secure and durable enough to be used through the daily rigors of marching field drills. MAY Monoposto and Biposto Carriers incorporate freedom of movement, allowing elaborate maneuvers that are essential to any contemporary band performance. In addition, with their mounting posts and drop and lock features, consistent with Stadium Hardware, MAY Monoposto and Biposto Carriers provide stability and easy adjustment on the fly. They also deliver a limitless range of playing positions for all drummers, regardless of their height or drum size.
