The Drum Kit


Yamaha Rydeen 5-Piece Garnet Red Drum Kit

Rydeen is the Japanese God of Thunder, and these drums live up to the name. They give the entry-level player a high-quality kit at a price point never before offered by Yamaha. The 6-ply Mahogany shells have a warm tone and lots of bottom end, and the kit includes double-braced hardware.

Philippine Mahogany Shell
Yamaha has been making drums for over 35 years and we are constantly experimenting to learn more about what makes a great drum. It is with that knowledge that we have been able to extract a richer sound from these new drums. The shells are manufactured using our exclusive Air Seal System. This technique, while enhancing the characteristics of the wood, also ensures that every drum shell is perfectly round, of uniform thickness, and creates a stronger, more durable shell. Even our least expensive entry-level drums are made using this process.

5 Exciting Finishes
The Rydeen series will appeal to the entry level player not only with it's great sound, but with 5 finishes to choose from they will be able to find a color that they are excited about. These kits include a matching wood snare drum and inlayed bass drum hoops.

Universal Size Toms
The Rydeen series toms are Universal sizes that are an inch shorter than power sizes. This gives the drums more sustain and will make it easier for younger players to position them comfortably. Combine these sizes with the available 20? bass drum and you have a quality kit that even young children can play.

Rydeen uses the same small low-mass lugs as the YD series used. They are a very clean, simple design. The lugs are a spring-less design to prevent them from rattling.

Bass Drum Spurs
The bass drum spurs are a simple yet sturdy design. They are pre-set for optimum height but will fold close to the shell for transport.

Omni-ball Tom Holders
A pair of Yamaha's famed Ball Clamp Mounts and tom holders mounted in the Rydeens's bass drum ofter maximum freedom when setting up the drums.
