Who uses it?
Whitesnake, Tower of Power, the Dave Matthews Band.... all have a Phoenix kit at thier core. Teddy Campbell uses it on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Mike Shapiro plays one for Sergio Mendez and the list goes on.... These musicians rely on the build quality, tonal range and solid hardware of the Yamaha Phoenix kits and you can too.
Specially selected wood shell
The shells of the PHX are 11-ply. The woods used are progressively harder from the center to the outside. What does this do? well each layer was chosen for its sonic quality and the way it responds to vibrations.
The center ply is jatoba; this is a very hard wood' which gives each drum a solid core which can take a lot of beating. Sandwiched on either side of this is kapur. This wood is in the mahogany family and adds warmth to the sound of the drum so your beats sound fuller and well rounded. The inner and outer plies are maple, this rounds out the tone adding high and mid frequencies to the shell.
By mixing these woods you get the strength and stability of a hard wood, the warmth of a medium wood and the top end response of the more flexible maple. On this kit you also get a top layer of burled ash for style, the perfect finish.
All the drums on this kit have an updated version of the popular YESS system (this stands for Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System). The new version of the YESS mounting system supports the drum at the top and bottom and mounts the tom bracket onto a piece of the shell. The 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. Your drum beats ring out more clearly nad there is less of that unwanted dampening that other kits cause.
