Yamaha Drums is proud to welcome Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins to our legendary family of Artists.
US Indie Rockers Smashing Pumpkins have just announced a major summer tour to the excitement of millions of fans around the world. The lineup for this reunion will be a combination of the original members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin joined by Jeff Schroeder on guitar and Jack Bates on bass.
As a founding member, Jimmy Chamberlin is an integral part to the band´s sound that has made the Smashing Pumpkins one of the most successful Indie Bands of all time. His technical yet beautifully delicate playing brings the perfect sphere for melodic voice of Billy Corgan.
On the upcoming tour, Jimmy will be using Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple as his choice of instruments. Regarding this decision, Jimmy sent us this along today:
“Yamaha has always been part of my sound. Yamaha drums are the sound on my biggest records and the accompaniment to my biggest and proudest musical moments. They are the way that I hear drums. The versatility of Yamaha drums continues to be unmatched by any other brand. I’ve tried other drums and have come to the conclusion that, although many drums do a few things well, only Yamaha does all types of music great. These days, the scope of the music that I play is such that I need an instrument that can take me from small jazz club to arena to festival. Yamaha is that instrument. I couldn’t be happier to be back!“

Absolute Hybrid Maple
The answer to the question is drums that give you the sound you need, whenever you need it.Tonal requirements vary among drummers, differ with dynamics, and change, from band to band, song to song, moment to moment. With the Absolute Hybrid Series drums, Yamaha has succeeded in addressing this, with a drum set that possesses an extraordinary degree of expressive power, allowing drummers to pursue a level of expression that perhaps they've not experience before in their other drums. These drums offer a wide dynamic range that allows them to respond accurately to each and every stroke, and follow changes in dynamics, nuance, and touch, letting you play what you want to play.Andere Farben
