Yamaha's Field-Corps multi-toms deliver a pure, focused tone that is maximized by a deeper, more balanced set of multi-toms. These toms are equipped with a lug that utilizes an arch-shape design which allows the shell to vibrate freely thus delivering greater tone. The Field-Corps multi-toms are also equipped with a 2.3mm thick, steel UltraHoop™ rim that is specially designed by Yamaha. Its profile protects the bearing edge from mallet sweeps, which is especially important as the rim height lowers.
The multi-toms also utilize a high-strength aluminum reinforcement ring inserted just below the bearing edge to maintain shell integrity—especially when high-tension tuning is used.
All Yamaha marching multi-toms are made using Yamaha's patented Air-Seal System which ensures that the shells start round and stay round: an in-round shell tunes clearer and provides a pure fundamental tone.
6-ply birch shells enhance mid-range tone. A high-strength, aluminum reinforcement ring inserted just below the bearing edge maintains shell integrity. This exclusive Yamaha design allows for extreme, high-tension tuning without the risk of warping.
Additionally, since the wood bearing edge of the drum, not the reinforcement ring, contacts the drum head, a quality transfer of vibration energy occurs offering a pure and consistent sound.
Enhanced Maximum Tonal Projection (MTP) cut offers an articulate sound and a focused fundamental—perfect for precise projection of tone in competitive marching situations. Extensive research into the cut has resulted in a design that delivers maximum performance from the shell while providing optimum balance between each of the toms. The Enhanced MTP multi-toms are 1" to 1.5" deeper than previous Yamaha models.
The 8-ply birch shell on the 6" multi-tom (MQ-8206) maintains shell integrity without a reinforcement ring and clearly projects upper register tuning.
