  • Item Details

    Yamaha has just unveiled possibly the biggest game-changer ever for the marching percussion world. Every marching drummer suffers from the sad reality that drums are heavy. Really heavy. Busted knees and thrown backs have hindered generations of drummers...until now.

    With advancements in science, Yamaha has been able to create rings of rare-earth magnetic material with 3D printers. When placed in polar opposition, two of these GravRings create a strong enough magnetic field to levitate a drum - which means that the drummer doesn’t have to carry any of the weight!

    One GravRing is attached to an arm that extends out from the bottom of the harness (without getting in the way of your legs), resting underneath the drum. The second GravRing attaches firmly to the bottom rim of the snare drum (adapters included for bass drums or tenors), lining up directly over the first. When attached properly, magnetic propulsion allows the drum to ‘float’ above the bottom GravRing.

    Two small connecting arms keep the drum and the carrier together so the drum doesn’t float off when you move across the field. The arms attach securely to the tension rod tubes on snares, the hoops on bass drums, and the back rail on tenors. Just imagine the drill possibilities now that you can literally sprint while playing!

    The Marching Percussion Levitation System is height adjustable to fit players and drums of any size, and is compatible with all Yamaha carriers and marching drums.
