The One To Beat
This revolutionary flagship model is fully equipped with the DTX-PAD drum pads. To develop these next-generation drum pads, Yamaha used its many years of experience designing acoustic drums to produce drum pads that feel good when you play them, that work well in performances, and that are fantastically quiet. They will change the conventional view of electronic drums. In addition, with the DTX900, a high quality tone generator descended directly from the world-renowned MOTIF series synthesizers, and the HEXRACK, a genuine rack made by a dedicated drum hardware manufacturer, this series is truly the pinnacle of electronic drumming technology. Live performances, recordings, production, practice sessions at home or in the studio—wherever you are, this monster machine will bring out your full drumming potential.

DTX-PAD - a next-generation electronic drum pad.

Yamaha has been a proud and dedicated designer of acoustic drums for many years, and that's why Yamaha knows what it means for drums to feel good and to work just right in performances. In its relentless pursuit of drumming perfection, Yamaha has channeled all of its experience into the creation of a new generation of electronic drum pads. Yamaha sought the help of the world's top drummers, reflecting their detailed sense of perfection to give form to the drummer's ideal. The result of this quest for perfection is the DTX-PAD.

- DTX-PAD achieves an exquisite feel that satisfies even the world's top drummers.

- The surface of the DTX-PAD, features a "Textured Cellular Silicone Head", made using unique molding technologies developed by Yamaha.

- It has the different stick response for the snare and toms to provide the natural feeling when you use the pads in a drum set.

- It has achieved such a high level playability that top drummers who are used to playing on acoustic drums are able to play on them naturally.

- The sensitivity of it has dramatically increased by employing a floating design.

- It achieves a totally different level than current electronic drum pads in terms of quietness.

- The durability of it is proven by Yamaha's numerous severe tests.

The DTX-PAD, a next-generation electronic drum pad that is recognized by the world's top drummers, is the one to beat in the electronic drum pads.

 

This high-end kit includes the HEXRACK acoustic drum rack.


Yamaha Drums - An insanely extravagant arrangement of four toms, three cymbals, a snare, hi-hat, and kick. There is one 12-inch snare drum, two 10-inch toms, and two 12-inch floor toms.

- Equipped with the powerfully solid HEXRACK, a Yamaha rack system for acoustic drums that boasts exceptional stability. With its many years of experience designing acoustic drums, Yamaha was able to produce a rack that is loved by countless professional drummers for its absolute stability and ease of setting.

 

 

 

The High-Quality Tone Generator and Superb Operability of the DTX900.

- In addition to a collection of essential Yamaha acoustic drum sounds, the DTX900 also features a broad spectrum of voices taken from the world renowned MOTIF series synthesizers for a grand total of 1326 voices. Even on a live stage, these subtle yet dynamic voices bring forth a compelling presence.

- The XA (Expanded Articulation) System, which creates subtly different samples even when you strike the drum with the same strength, can create more natural snare rolls and re-create the feel of a legato ride cymbal or staccato hi-hat.

- Equipped with rich and powerful DSP effects. In addition to reverb and chorus effects that can be used commonly throughout the whole system, there are variation effects that can be used on each drum kit to bring out the perfect sound which you need.

- Internal recordings of 87 songs from a wide variety of genres. You can mute the drum part and play along with a song, and you can also record your own performance.

- Equipped with a chain function that enables you to program drum kits freely in any order
that you please. Even during a live performance, you can switch to another drum kit easily
just by hitting a pad.

Realistic Cymbals and Durable Kick Pads

- Uses the vertically mobile RHH135 hi-hat pad. This pad is incredibly quiet, and its pedal has a natural feel. You can control different sounds with the pad and edge areas, and foot splashing is supported. The HS740A hi-hat stand is included.

- There are two cymbal pads, the 15-inch PCY155 and the 13-inch PCY135. They both have three zones, the pad, edge, and cup. Each zone produces a different sound. Because sticks bounce and vibrate on these pads in almost the exact same way that they do on real cymbals, you'll get that same feeling that you do playing on an acoustic drum set. Also, you can choke the cymbal pads by grabbing their edges after you hit them.

- Uses the KP125W kick pads, which guarantee stable play even when you are using double foot pedals. A protective sheet that covers the entire drum head makes each kick pad powerfully durable.
