A professional instrument with powerful sound and rich tones.

Yamaha’s 7000 Series chimes bring the power to large ensembles. With rich fundamental tones, long sustain and wide dynamic range, the YCH-7018 chimes are optimal for professionals. The YCH-7018 features height adjustable casters so that damper contact can bring out the maximum sustain of the chime tubes. The head caps on the YCH-7018 chimes is designed to deliver a richer fundamental tone, pitch definitions and a longer sustain. The head caps deliver a wider sweet spot, so it’s easier to find an optimal tone. With a silver-colored finish, the head caps pop against the gold-colored tubes for a nice contrast. Yamaha’s patent-pending Damper Rod Clamp System keeps everything in its place. Designed for greater clamping strength and a secure hold, the system prevents any slippage when the damper pedal is pressed. Damper response is also improved in the YCH-7018. Yamaha aligned the damper movement with the front-to-back motion of the chime tubes when they are struck. It’s easier to stop any extended sustain of the chime tubes.


A swivel prevention function was added to the caster locks. Furthermore, the YCH-7018 features height-adjustable casters. If the chime tubes are not properly centered in the damper, they can touch the damper felt, reducing sustain and deadening the tone. Adjustable casters make it easy to level the instrument, so the chime tubes hang away from the damper felt.


The YCH-7018 chimes feature a full complement of damper holes provided in the sharp/flat chime tube row, so any arrangement of the chime tubes can be used. All available spaces can be used for a total of 21 tubes. Players have complete layout freedom even when special-order chime tubes are used, since the position of the low C tube is not predetermined.


Note: The natural-note row of the YCH7018 does not provide sufficient height for longer chime tubes such as the YCHT7049A, YCH7050A# and YCHT7051B, so those tubes should be hung on the sharp/flat row or on a separate YCHS7006 stand. Order your YCH-7018 chimes today.
