Absolute Hybrid Maple
The answer to the question is drums that give you the sound you need, whenever you need it.
Tonal requirements vary among drummers, differ with dynamics, and change, from band to band, song to song, moment to moment. With the Absolute Hybrid Series drums, Yamaha has succeeded in addressing this, with a drum set that possesses an extraordinary degree of expressive power, allowing drummers to pursue a level of expression that perhaps they’ve not experience before in their other drums. These drums offer a wide dynamic range that allows them to respond accurately to each and every stroke, and follow changes in dynamics, nuance, and touch, letting you play what you want to play.

PHX – from YAHAMA Drum Laboratory
At YAMAHA, prototype drums are the starting point of each drum’s evolution. These prototypes are created in the Drum Laboratory where YAMAHA continually pursues the essence of musical perfection. Under a completely new concept, the PHX (pronounced “phoenix”) Series is the pinnacle of excellence in this prototyping process. Handcrafted by our expert technicians, it’s based on over 40 years of history, tradition and experience and technology. The newly developed PHX Series reveals YAMAHA’s all-out pursuit of the ultimate in drum craftmanship and sound.

In addition to the 1,268 drum and percussion sounds and 128 instrument voices, you can add new sounds to the DTX700 by simply loading them into the included 64MB Flash-ROM. By incorporating the DTX-PADs (the most advanced drum pads ever made) for the snare and toms you develop real drum playing technique the more you play the drums. And you’ll be playing day and night with the on-board practice songs that let you mute the drums and play along; you can even record yourself for further study.
This pinnacle of electronic drumming technology is fully equipped with DTX-PAD drum pads, next-generation electronic drum pads that Yamaha has designed specifically for drummers.
