Yamaha's new flagship PHX-Phoenix drum kit has been developed and handcrafted after four years of extensive research at Yamaha's new drum laboratory. Working with world leading artists, sound engineers and drum technicians, the aim was to build the best possible sounding drum kit. Using Yamaha's 40 years of craftsmanship know-how, we completely redesigned and improved all the elements of the drum to create the ultimate in quality and in appearance.

The colours and finishes shown may vary from those on the actual products.


【Phoe-nix】 * — noun

A mythical bird of great beauty fabled to burn itself on a funeral pyre and to rise from its ashes in the freshness of youth and live through another cycle of years: often an emblem of immortality or of reborn idealism.

A thing of peerless beauty or excellence

Nippon Gakki, the predecessor to Yamaha Corporation, was founded in 1897, and the Phoenix logo was registered as the company' s official trademark. While the triple tuning fork design that adorns modern Yamaha instruments is well known throughout the world, it is the Phoenix motif that was first emblazoned on our first premier organs. The design embodies the spirit of our founder, whose goal was to produce instruments of world-class quality and unrivaled beauty.

In 2007, YAMAHA celebrated its 40th anniversary of drums manufacturing. At that same time, we felt the need to recapture the spirit of our company' s founder. It was decided that YAMAHA Drums' next 40 years would begin with commitment to a rebirth and revitalization in striving for musical instrument excellence. From this rekindled spirit of innovation and musical resolve, came the birth of the PHX Series.

The Phoenix is considered the symbol of immortality, a rebirth into a fresh being, full of new life. Similarly, the PHX Series marks a rebirth of drum advancements, another milestone to add to YAMAHA' s legendary history. The PHX is the next step in innovation and excellence for those serious about their music.

Dave Weckl

Like Steve Gadd before him, Dave Weckl spawned an army of imitators with his breathtaking playing on Chick Corea’s first Elektric Band album, released in 1985. Playing elegantly structured, complex compositions alongside sequenced accompaniments required a new level of technical mastery. Dave became a role model for a new generation of fusion drummers with his invention, uncanny precision and beautifully tuned Yamaha drums.
