Yamaha Design “Synapses” HEXRACK
2008 / DRUM RACK
Stainless steel hexagonal pipes and a newly-developed clamping system allow this drum rack to cope with any situation.
Supreme reliability that stands up to the most powerful drumming thanks to its honeycomb construction and hexagonally shaped pipes that offer superb stability and strength. The curved lines of the pipes also allow for a great deal of freedom in setting up the system. This culminates in a strength and toughness that provides an interesting contrast with the overall elegance of the completed drum rack.
In both substance and form, the Hexrack system is a straightforward expression of the durability and support demanded of drum hardware. Simple in concept, the system emphasizes the presence of the drummer – the unwavering yet oftentimes unsung hero of a band. In actuality, the Hexrack is a very true reflection of Yamaha design.
The Hexrack system unifies the many pipes, clamps, rods, T-legs and parts that make up a hexagonal drum rack with a single design language of superb form and finish. Built strongly, the feel of the Hexrack when setting it up speaks volumes of its superior quality.
The Hexrack maximizes drumshell resonance without permitting excess sympathetic vibration, affording stability for a very comfortable playing experience. The rack’s movable parts glide with smooth flexibility during setup, and the screws require just a modicum of torque to close. The Hexrack system amplifies the enjoyment of drumming, offering playability that inspires drummers to a new groove.
