The PHX-Phoenix drum kit has been developed and handcrafted after four years of extensive research at Yamaha's new drum laboratory. Working with world leading artists, sound engineers and drum technicians, the aim was to build the best possible sounding drum kit. Using Yamaha's 40 years of craftsmanship know-how, we completely redesigned and improved all the elements of the drum to create the ultimate in quality and in appearance. (Image shows Tom Tom)

Shells The shells of the PHX are 11-ply hybrid shells. The woods used are progressively harder from the centre ply to the outer plies. The centre ply is Jatoba; this is a very hard wood' and it "anchors" the fundamental of the shell. Sandwiched on either side of this is Kapur. This wood is in the Mahogany family and adds warmth to the sound of the drum. The inner and outer plies are Maple, except in the case of drums using the optional burled ash outer ply. These drums use an outer half-ply each of maple and burled ash. Maple rounds out the tone adding high and mid frequencies to the shell. Bearing edges All drums have a 30° bearing edge, but each "family" of drums uses a different profile. Bass drums have a sharper edge cut toward the outer plies. This gives the bass drums attack and shortens the decay. Floor toms have a slightly rounded edge to give them a perfect balance of attack and sustain, making them very articulate at all dynamic levels. Toms have an even more rounded profile for warmth and sustain. This combination of shell composition and bearing edges makes PHX what many of our artists described as "the most musical drums [they] have ever played". Hardware PHX uses redesigned versions of the Nouveau lug and YESS. The new lug mounts on a square hook rather than a round post. This keeps the tension rod in perfect vertical alignment and eliminates the need to use two hands while tuning the drum. We used the aluminium die-cast hoops made popular on our Absolute series for PHX. These hoops are very light but rigid, giving you the open, warm sound of a triple-flanged hoop and the accurate tuning of a die-cast hoop. Lugs and hoops are available in chrome or gold. The new version of the YESS mounting system supports the drum at the top and bottom. The new version mounts the tom bracket onto a piece of the shell, and that wooden plate is isolated or shock-mounted using rubber grommets. A 3-piece fastening system is used to attach the new YESS to the shell, and the inside and outside fasteners do not touch. This system totally isolates the drum and allows the full tone to come through and maximizes sustain.
