The PHX drum set offers the widest dynamic range of any drums created by Yamaha, and with an even greater, richer, mid-low response.

The 12-ply shell uses the hardest and heaviest wood, Jatoba for the centre core. The Jatoba is surrounded on either side by layers of Kapur, another hard and heavy wood. Then, surrounding the Kapur is North American Maple, the softest wood in the whole shell, which is used for the outer and inner shell plies. 

All PHX bearing edge are cut at 30-degrees. However, what makes each type of shell different - whether it be a tom, floor tom, or bass drum - is the radius of the top of each bearing edge. These radiuses are where the drum head touches the wood of the shell, and the size of the radius allows more or less vibration to pass from the head through to the shell.

The PHX uses the Y.E.S.S.Ⅱ system for mounting the toms, which is perfectly matched to the hybrid shell. It is super stable and comfortably supports the thick PHX shell while bringing out its natural resonance without compromise. The mounting plate itself is made of the same maple as is used on the outer plies of the Hybrid shell, further contributing to the rich resonance and enhanced low end. The Hook Lug on the PHX was designed with a small footprint, which doesn’t disturb the shell vibration, and accentuates the fundamental tone. In addition, Yamaha’s unique 3.0mm aluminum die-cast hoop features high rigidity and extreme light weight, so it maximizes the head resonance, and creates a rich, melodic tone with a full attack.
