The 12” tom pads also have a completely new design, which uses high quality birch drum shells. The finish is the same as the color finishes on Yamaha's professional acoustic drums.
The playing surface is a 2-ply mesh head, made by REMO. It has been specially designed to give a refreshingly accurate playing feel. In addition, the pad is 2-zone, for head and rim triggering.
The shells are formed and finished at Yamaha's acoustic drum factory, and the lugs and hoops are the same as those used on Yamaha's acoustic drums.
These pads are every bit a beautiful as a Yamaha acoustic drum.
