INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 17, 2009) Yamaha is proud to announce that Paul Bostaph has joined its artist roster. Paul, a rock musician who has played drums for Forbidden, Slayer, Testament, Exodus and Systematic, plays a 9-piece Custom Oak drum kit.
"Every time I hear a Yamaha drum set I think, 'Man, those drums have great tone,' says Bostaph. "I have always wanted to connect with that Yamaha tone. Well, I've stopped wishing. I have that excitement to create again! Yamaha drums are the best. I feel like I have just accomplished a lifelong goal every time I play them."
Paul just returned from a summer tour across Europe with Testament. The band is currently working on their next studio album, expected to be released in 2010.
"We are very excited that Paul has joined the Yamaha Drums family," comments John Wittman, Manager of Artist Relations for Yamaha Corporation of America. "We know we will have a long and successful partnership with this extrememly talented, legendary metal drummer."
Paul played drums for the thrash metal band Forbidden from 1986-1991 before joining Slayer in 1992. In 2005, he joined the band Exodus and toured with them until 2007, when he left, allowing the original drummer to rejoin the band. He rejoined Testament in October of 2007, now playing alongside fellow Yamaha artist Alex Skolnick on guitar. Paul had been a brief member of Testament in 1993.

Absolute Hybrid Maple
Yamaha fit œuvre de pionnier en matière de kit hybride acoustique avec sa ligne haut de gamme PHX Series. Comme son nom l'indique, le kit Absolute Hybrid Maple combine érable Nord Américain et Wengé. Cette alliance produit une tonalité expressive et un large spectre dynamique, apte à retranscrire les nuances les plus fines du musicien. Les kits de la série Absolute Hybrid Maple sont équipés de coquilles à crochet en partie démontables (Hook Lugs), tirées de la série PHX, qui transmettent parfaitement le son naturel des fûts. Outre permettre un changement rapide et facile des peaux, ces coquilles assurent un accord précis. La technologie hybride donne à ces fûts une sonorité remarquable. Il faut l'entendre pour le croire !Autres couleurs disponibles
