The Yamaha Intermediate Series CTS-34 is a set of 13” and 14” single-headed concert toms with a WS-865A tom stand. The CT-8000 Series is constructed using the Yamaha Air-Seal System and YESS Mount System to produce a quality drum and to achieve the distinct Yamaha sound. Available in 8 sizes.
Air-Seal System Shells
The birch 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.
New Size Structure
Yamaha adopted the same size structure as the flagship CT-900 Series, 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. The CT-8000 Series offers solid attack and brilliant tone 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.
YESS Mount System
Providing minimum mount-to-shell contact, the Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System (YESS) delivers increased resonance plus maximizes dynamic range and sustain. Mounts are attached at the drum's nodal point where shell vibration is least effected.
1.6 mm., triple flange steel rims
Triple-flanged hoops offer traditional sound, yet are easy to tune and enhance low-end partials.
The concert tom systems come with the WS-865A heavy-duty stand. The stand features double braced legs for stability.
Darkwood Stain Finish
Fits well in concert settings.
