What type of Yamaha drum kit do I have?

by Jonathan

My acoustic drum kit is made by Yamaha but i am struggling to identify the type of kit it is, ie the name, the model & the serial numbers on the drums are:
BD: BD -522D, HH
RT(12"): TT - 512D, HH
RT(13"): TT - 513D, HH
FT(16"): FT - 516D, HH
SD - (14") Yamaha steel shell
I think it could all be a YD or similar kit but its not like others I have seen. The shells have a royal blue finish and the BD feet are both separate metal rods that slide into the BD itself.


Hi, Johnathan--

I am afraid that I have no clue, but you can probably find out by contacting Yamaha Acoustic Drum Support:

My drum set sounds almost identical to what your description says, and I'm having the same issue.
