IGGOR CAVALERA teams up with Yamaha Drums.
Iggor Cavalera rocketed to fame as one of the most influential drummers from the mid 80´s Thrash Metal scene, when his aggressive, energetic playing on the first SEPULTURA records hit the taste of fans worldwide, leading the young band from Brazil to becoming pioneers of this genre.
Following the band´s raw energetic first releases, their follow-up records “Chaos A.D” and “Roots” revealed Iggor´s unique tribal rhythms, that marked his drumming style and contributed to the band´s worldwide success, making SEPULTURA one of the era´s few bands that managed to increase its worldwide fan base unimpressed by the many trends that came and went around them.
While to date Iggor stays true to his thrash roots as the drummer in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY he has also opened up to new musical directions. Currently he is one half of the DJ duo MIXHELL, a project he founded with his wife Laima Leyton, as well as being 1 of 3 live drummers in SOULWAX, the Belgian dancefloor kings known for their acclaimed live shows. For his various projects, Iggor has decided to make Yamaha Drums his instrument of choice.
“One of my first drum kits was a Yamaha, back in the 80´s and it was one of my favourite sounds. So from that moment, I always had a special place for Yamaha” remembers Iggor in our interview.
In search of a versatile kit that suits his various projects, Iggor will make the Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple kit his sound for future shows and recordings. Solid manufacturing, warm & punchy tone with lots of sustain, it delivers the natural drum sound Iggor has been searching for: “For me that´s what it is about. I don´t wanna have to push tons of effects to make my drums sound good.”
With a Pink Champagne Sparkle finish and his lowrider-inspired set-up, this kit will also be an optical eyecatcher on stages worldwide.

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
