The level of equipment and manufacturing techniques found in Yamaha's Rydeen 5-Piece Drum Set easily equals that of kits costing hundreds more. The 6-ply Philippine mahogany shells are built with Yamaha's Air Seal System, providing exceptional durability. The bass hoop is made of real wood with an inlay that matches the shell. All hardware is double-braced and the set includes a pair of ball clamp mounts and tom holders. Cymbals not included.

I have owned a Yamaha Rydeen drum set for about a year now. If you are looking for a great quality drum set with amazing tone then this is the set for you! It's a great set for all styles of music and looks amazing up on stage. You will not regret paying the very reasonable price for this set. What are you waiting for? Go get one!
I just bought one 2 weeks ago. Before that my two best friends were trying to start a band. Danny was on guitar and john on bass. they were looking for a drummer so i secretly ordered this one so i could be in there band. It worked and we have 2 songs already. I would just like to thank this company for making an affordable awesome drum/precussion set!!! THANKS!
I bought this set around 2 years ago, and to this day, it holds an amazing tune! The included hardware is durable, and the shells have an amazing color. This is a deep, powerful drumset. I recommend this drumset over any!
I just purchased this set last December 2006 for a Christmas present to myself. Never had a chance to put it all together not until a couple of weeks ago after purchasing a cymbal kit the Paiste PST 5 Rock Set 14/16/20. Took me a while to fine tuned the set to my satisfaction. But man, this set rocks! For quality, value and features I highly recomemd this set. Buy it!
I purchased this kit when I got serious into drumming. My first impression was that the shells and hardware look AMAZING. Everything seemed really professional and made me feel like a real drummer. After several months I got better and figured that I wasn't getting the sound I wanted out of my drums. So after a few sets of heads, I finally found the set-up that really made these drums boom. Evans Hyrdraulic heads on the toms, Evans ST DRY on the snare, and an Aquarian Super Kick I made these drums sound like cannons. The hardware that came with the kit, that being the hi-hat stand, kick pedal, snare stand, cymbal stand, and tom mounts are all pretty good quality. (The ball-joint tom mounts make for easy adjusting.)I was most impressed with the snare stand and cymbal stand. The snare stand is VERY sturdy and looks beastly. The boom stand looks wimpy but is suprisingly sturday as well. The hi-hat stand does it's job but isn't as responsive as I like. The bass pedal is the worst of the hardware, but it'll get the job done with some tuning, until you upgrade to a new pedal. In conclusion, you simply can't lose with this kit. If you're looking to upgrade or to get serious into drumming, this is definitely worth considering. This kit has all the little nic-nacs that one would expect in a "high-end" kit. Seeing as how this is made by Yamaha, you won't have a hard time in finding upgrades for this kit. (It's like the Honda Civic of the drum world.) This is a good buy.
The Yamaha Rydeen 5-Piece is an amazing entry-level drum set. The price is very affordable especially for such an awesome kit. I have been playing for two years and this set is better than any I've played.
This set is a great set for someone with any amount of expierience playing the drums. The snare sounds amazing but if your playing rock you should muffle it a little bit(a peice of dict tape wil do) the toms also sound good, they just need to be tuned the right way. The set is great for the price, and looks good too. If you're looking at it, BUY IT!
i love this drum set so much. i have been playing drums for a while and this is a great entry-level drum set and the price can't get better than this, if you are a begginer you will ove it everyone will love it. it has a great bass drum with a nice deep thud and the snare sounds amazing, the toms are pretty ggood. buy some good cymbals and you have got a perfect drum-set!
I played my friend's set and it was this one. i couldn't believe the sound quality for a drum set at this affordable price. the snare, toms, and especially bass are as good as my pearl, and my set was $200 more! Great Set!
Some of the features on the Rydeen drum set I purchased have pleased me immensely, most notably the bass drum, and the mounting hardware for the tom. However, I'm a little disappointed in the snare drum, which feels cheap to me, even when compared to a Pearl piccolo snare I bought for $99 new. I'm also rather disappointed in the floor tom, which I find to be wimpy, even compared to floor toms on comparable kits, like the Sonor Jungle kit (another inexpensive, small drum set, that I'd recommend checking out for comparison). If I had my choice, I'd buy the bass drum in a minute, but I prefer the tom's I've heard on the aforementioned Sonor kit, or really anywhere at all. I find their overall sound cheesy, hollow, barely propulsive...more a dinky tone than a resounding "Kunk!" (for the mount tom) or a deep gutsy "Boom!" (on the floor). Anyway, the plus sides of the kit are it's awesome setup, which I'm in love with, and is the reason I've not sold the kit. It's compact, logical, and fully customizable. god bless yamaha hardware (and bass drums). It might be a really hip kit for jazz, but for heavier music, or cross-genre stuff, it might not float your boat. That said, It's a nice kit that I think will be perfect for some people.
