Are you sure? I have never heard this-- quite the opposite. The story has been that everything but the PHX is made in their own factory in China.
Agreed.It's fairly common knowledge more or less .. but the fact is that the Yamaha Product Drum Manager.. Jim Haler.. is the guy who revealed the info years ago.
It is odd….and forget drums for a second….people all around the world, every single day….are ingesting or injecting products made in China into their bodies. And don’t give it a second thought lol. But heaven forbid they mess with my drums! Them are fighting wordsI still find it funny that people still think something being made in china means its bad. Like, China isn't some backwater third world country. They make quality stuff.

Ironically I still need to check their American website for new information, as their Chinese website is even more outdated!For some people, it's factors other than the product that are objectionable.
Yamaha needs to do some updating. The blurb on their site is from 2014.
They last I heard from what I was told by my local drum shop, Sweetwater rep, and Yamaha at NAMM was, “It’s coming.” The issue is the paint supplier, and Yamaha being Yamaha, they won’t market anything until a long trial has given them the green light.
Has anyone heard anything?
