It goes without saying that the Sakae Rhythm factory in Osaka, Japan has built some of the most recorded drums in history. The quality was legendary, and the sounds... well, if you're reading this, then you know. Sakae was the OEM manufacturer for Yamaha's professional line of drums for decades. In 2008 when the economy turned, Sakae launched their own brand of drums while still manufacturing for Yamaha. When that partnership ended, Sakae focused on promoting their own lines of drums. They were moderately successful here in the United States, but the debt involved in launching a brand became too great and the factory shuttered it's doors for good in 2018, leaving all that talent, all that knowledge, all those drums that would never be built in dark corner of an abandoned factory.
It's a shame.
