The Yamaha Grand Series CTG-6802 is a set of 6, 8, 10, and 12” double-headed concert toms with a WS-865 tom stand. This model is a perfect choice for a classical concert use. Proportional sizing, oak shell and YESS III Mount System give this instrument a unity in tone and abundant sustain, resulting in extraordinary range of expressivity.

Features:

Oak Shells

Oak shell offers a fat, dense tone and sharp, open resonance. In addition to these characteristics, longer sustain and quick response is provide by YESS III Mounting System, achieving a perfect balance between tone clarity and abundant sustain. Even when playing a high-speed passage or roll, you can deliver the slightest nuance to your audience.

New Size Structure

After exhaustive study to determine the best size for this model specifically designed for concert use, Yamaha adopted a size structure based on the proportional relation between diameter and depth, which is “For every 1 inch increase in diameter, increase the depth by 1/2 inch”. As a result, Yamaha designers successfully achieved the classical tone and lingering depth which is fundamentally different from that of existing concert toms.

Solving a conventional problem that tonal color and length of sustain differ between toms, the 9000 Series offers a perfect unity in tone and sustain as a whole set, which gives you a higher level of expressivity. This series also has a wide tuning range from high to low register to allow you to produce various types of sound that is required in orchestral music.

YESS III Mounting System

How a tom and a stand are connected is a very important factor to determine the resonance and tonal color of the instrument. As the best mount system for CT-9000 series, Yamaha adopted the YESS II Mount System. This reflects the design concept of the Yamaha ultra-high-end drum set PHX series drum sets.

By putting the tom in a state close to “hanging in the air” as much as possible without holding it, this mount system minimizes the potential loss where the stand absorbs the instrument’s vibration and succeeds to bring out tom tom’s original fat tone with longer sustain. A shorten time lag between a point of attack and sound generation allows you to concentrate on your play more easily.

Air-Seal System Shells

The oak shells are produced utilizing the Air-Seal System. This process ensures that shells start round and stay round; an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone.

Sizes and Systems

Eight traditional sizes of single headed concert toms are offered in three traditional set-ups: CTG-6802 (6", 8", 10", 12" with two stands); CTG-0234 (10", 12", 13", 14", with two stands); CTG-3456 (13", 14", 15", 16", with two stands).
