Yamaha Drums

Yamaha Drums is a subsidiary of the Yamaha Corporation founded in 1967. The company manufactures acoustic and electronic drum kits as well as percussion instruments, marching band equipment and drum hardware.

The first models were produced at Yamaha's Niitsu factory in Hamamatsu, Japan, and later at their Miyatake factory. Many drummers who are familiar with Yamaha today believe that Sakae Rhythm was the original Yamaha production facility, but in fact production started at Yamaha's own factories. Another common misconception is that their Air Seal System was developed at Sakae Rhythm, this was developed and introduced right from the first models that were produced at their own factories. One of the earliest Yamaha drum brochures shows the original Yamaha production facility and describes Air Seal System technology, a Yamaha innovation that is a vital part of their identity as a drum manufacturer to this day.
