Introducing the Yamaha CT-8000 Series with an innovative new size structure. Yamaha has adopted the same proportional relation between diameter and depth as the flagship CT-900 Series, following the principle of "For every 1 inch increase in diameter, increase the depth by 1/2 inch." This design approach has allowed Yamaha designers to achieve a classical tone and lingering depth that sets these concert toms apart from existing models. The CT-8000 Series offers a cohesive set with solid attack and brilliant tone, elevating your expressivity to a higher level. With a wide tuning range from high to low register, you can create various types of sounds to suit your musical needs.
The CT-8000 Series features the Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System (YESS) Mount, which minimizes contact between the mount and shell, resulting in increased resonance, enhanced dynamic range, and sustained notes. The mounts are strategically positioned at the drum's nodal point, where shell vibration is least affected.
To ensure exceptional quality, the shells are crafted using the Air-Seal System, guaranteeing they start round and stay round. This process enhances tuning clarity and delivers a pure fundamental tone.
The Darkwood Stain finish adds an elegant touch, making the CT-8000 Series perfect for symphonic situations.
