“These Impact Drums provide a powerful solution for adding exceptional overall sound at a competitive price point for stage and marching bands,” said Troy C. Wollwage, marketing manager, percussion, Yamaha.

Yamaha today introduced the 9000 Series Impact Drums, which provide punchy, deep tones and excellent projection, as well as a simple, yet versatile mounting solution for a wide range of set-ups and marching applications.

Available in four sizes-the 18" FB-9018, 20" FB-9020, 22" FB-9022 and 24" FB-9024-these Impact Drums are equally well-suited to the concert hall or the marching band.

At times, high schools and universities will use chairs to mount a bass drum horizontally. Unfortunately, this is an improvised arrangement that offers less-than-ideal results, both acoustically and aesthetically. The Impact Drum's new, extended leg mounting system solves this problem, enabling these percussion instruments to be positioned perfectly, while their birch shell construction allows for a sharper attack, yielding a more focused tone.

"These Impact Drums provide a powerful solution for adding exceptional overall sound at a competitive price point for stage and marching bands," said Troy C. Wollwage, marketing manager, percussion, Yamaha Corporation of America. "With their solid sound and versatility, we expect these new instruments to be immensely popular among high school, college and university music programs, as well as with marching ensembles."

Yamaha Impact Drums-FB-9018 (MSRP: $1,198.00), FB-9020 (MSRP: $1,276.00) FB-9022 (MSRP: $1,354.00) and FB-9024 (MSRP: $1,432.00)-will ship April 2018.
