Yamaha single-headed concert toms feature birch and mahogany shells to produce a full, directional sound which is dry and has a sharp attack.
There are two series that Yamaha produce: the CT-8000 series and the CT-9000 series.
The CT-8000 Series tom-toms are constructed using the Yamaha Air-Seal System and YESS Mount System to produce quality drums that achieve the distinct Yamaha sound.
The CT-9000 Series are double-headed models and are the perfect choice for a classical concert use. Proportional sizing, oak shell and YESS III Mount System give these instruments a unity in tone and abundant sustain, resulting in extraordinary range of expressivity.
