In producing these drums, we adopted a different approach for the shell construction, heads and hardware. In addition we switched from nitrocellulose lacquer, the use of which is particularly costly and time consuming, to a different type of lacquer – one used by many other drum makers for their high-end models. This has reduced the time of the drying process, shortened our overall production time and enabled us to significantly reduce the price.
We are also able to provide a wide variety of color choices including new sparkle lacquer finishes.
These factors all combine to give NEW YAIBA a truly unique sound quality.
The New YAIBA Groove Kit and Bop Kit are the result of our research into finding the perfect shell type to suit specific sonic and stylistic requirements. We settled upon birch for the Groove kit and maple for the Bop kit . Our commitment to producing the ideal sound led us to this decision to use different shell types within one series – in this we are confident to say that we have introduced a completely new concept to the drum industry.
With all the revolutionary ideas featured in New YAIBA, it is indeed a drum kit of unmatched price and value.
