This includes 20- and 22-in. bass drum kits with 10- and 12-in. toms, 14- or 16-in. floor toms, and a matching 14-in. snare drum. Also included in the Rydeen series is the Yamaha HW680W Hardware set.

This stable and convenient wall hanger comes in three different versions for musicians wishing to present their guitars, basses, or ukuleles in the same almost horizontal position as during playing. The three versions are for elec- tric guitar and bass, acoustic guitar and bass, and ukulele. The RockStand Wall Hanger holds the instrument securely in place and provides a foam padding for added protection of the instrument. Seven raster positions allow a different angle of the crossbar to be controlled by an easy-to-adjust pin-lock system. There are three or more setup positions depending on the instrument, as well as a powder-coated metal construction in black. The wall hanger can also be converted for left-handed instruments.
