  • Item Details

    Yamaha 8300 Field-Corps Marching Tenors are made with strong maple shells (6-ply on the 6" and 8" drums, 7-ply on the others) that have been perfectly rounded using high-pressure air bag technology. The result is a pure, mid-range set of drums that are easy to tune and can cut through the rest of the battery to be clearly heard at all dynamics.

    The 6-8-10-12-13-14" SUMO sextet configuration is the largest Yamaha makes, suited for college bands and drum corps with players that can handle a lot of weight to produce a lot of power.

    Each of the individual drums - except the 6" drum - has been equipped with a thick aluminum reinforcement ring on the inside of the shell, near the bearing edge. This keeps the shell in round under extreme tensions, and prevents the bearing edges from disintegrating if the players accidentally hit the drums in a bad playing zone.

    The shells on these tenors are cut extra deep to help boost power and projection all the way up to the box, and 45-degree bearing edges allow the heads to ring to their fullest potential. These drums won't get lost in the mix.

    Everybody hates hitting rims on their sweeps, so Yamaha has included 2.3mm steel Ultra Hoops shaped with a special inward profile that keeps them underneath horizontally-traveling mallets.

    To help keep these tenors as light as possible, the lugs have been made of die-cast aluminum which is strong and very light.

    Besides the drum itself, this bundle includes the following:
