YAMAHA Rock Tour Textured Green

What it takes to meet the demands of today’s young rock drummer
Every detail in the design of Rock Tour is aimed at what it takes to meet the demands of today’s young rock drummer. The Big Leaf mahogany shells have the tone and projection they need, and the finishes have an edgy look to complement their style. We made no compromise to Yamaha’s legendary quality and attention to detail so that Rock Tour can stand up to the rigors of a busy touring schedule and still provide unmatched tone when you put them under the microscope of the recording studio.

Yamaha is commitment to creating fine musical instruments, while being careful to preserve our valuable natural resources, continues with Rock Tour. The Big Leaf mahogany begins as seed from South America and is planted in managed forests in Indonesia. This resource is carefully managed and reforested to help preserve our environment.


Rock Tour features 9-ply shells of Big Leaf Mahogany (Textured Ash are 6-ply mahogany, 2-ply ash). The mahogany for Rock Tour is a South American species that is grown in a reforested, managed forest as a renewable resource. Rock Tour shells have a low fundamental, and a warm musical tone while maintaining a strong attack and great projection.

Hardware and Finishes

Rock Tour is available in the US in 5 finishes: Matte Metallic Silver, Matte Metallic Black with matte silver lugs and hoops as well as Textured Green, Textured Red Sunburst, Textured Smoke Sunburst with chrome hoops and lugs. Toms are fitted with YESS tom mounts for increased sustain, and vertical mounted floor tom brackets for added stability under extreme playing situations.


Rock Tour bass drums are virgin (no mount) ten-lug design. Bass drum claws have rubber inserts to protect the hoops and prevent rattle at low head tension. Rock Tour toms and floor toms ship with Remo Pinstripes© for durability and ease of tuning. The badge and bass drum resonant head features a new logo with an edgy, modern look.
