Rydeen 5-Piece Garnet Red Drum Kit
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
