The CT-8000 Series are constructed using the Yamaha Air-Seal System and YESS Mount System to produce a quality drum and to achieve the distinct Yamaha sound. Available in 8 sizes.
Yamaha adopted the same size structure as the flagship CT-900 Series, based on the proportional relation between diameter and depth, which is “For every 1 inch increase in diameter, increase the depth by 1/2 inch”. As a result, Yamaha designers successfully achieved the classical tone and lingering depth which is fundamentally different from that of existing concert toms. The CT-8000 Series offers solid attack and brilliant tone as a whole set, which gives you a higher level of expressivity. This series also has a wide tuning range from high to low register to allow you to produce various types of sound.
The birch shells are produced utilizing the Air-Seal System. This process ensures that shells start round and stay round; an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone.Features:
