DTX8K-X offers the uncompromising sound, feel and playing surface that allow drummers to perform at their best. The DTX-PRO module delivers sounds that have been fine-tuned to naturally follow the drummer's performance and allow for maximum expression. DTX-PRO features real sounds and real sampled room ambience recorded in world-renowned studios.
For Kit Modifier, the experience of Yamaha and its drum voicing that has been cultivated over many years has been condensed into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMP and EFFECT. With the simple twist of a knob, it is possible to express a wide range of sounds from natural/acoustic to the unique sounds created by professional engineers and producers.
Yamaha TCS (textured cellular silicone) heads feature a unique internal structure that provides a realistic response with realistic hardness and rebound, as well as a treated surface that prevents stick sliding. The result is a natural drum feel that encourages you to keep playing.
The pads feature wooden birch drum shells made and painted at Yamaha acoustic drum factories. The badges, lugs and hoops are also standard acoustic drum parts. These shells offer the presence and beauty of authentic acoustic drums and give this kit great stage appeal.
All cymbal pads feature 3 zones – meaning they produce different sounds at the edge, bow and cup – as well as choke and mute functionality. The ride cymbal is equipped with a hit point detection function, allowing it to reproduce delicate stick work.
USB audio and MIDI allows connectivity to numerous devices for recording, streaming and the Rec'n'Share app without additional input gear. Create high-quality videos without leaving the drum throne. The module includes individual inputs allowing for hybrid setups or easily augmenting the kit with more pads. The ability to layer up to four sounds per pad, along with stacking two different effects ignites creativity and allows you to customize your sound with professional studio quality.
The rich practice functions of DTX-PRO make you a better drummer, quicker! There's a sophisticated metronome, a recorder function, 10 training functions that are perfect for training drummer's sense of rhythm, various genres of 37 training songs and more. Whether you're a beginner or a professional, you'll find useful functions for daily training.
With unparalleled sounds, functionality and stage presence, DTX8K-X is recommended for all drummers looking for a superior performance when rehearsing, performing live or recording.
