Yamaha DTX950K Electronic Drum Set
The DTX950K is Yamaha's top of the line electronic drum set. The pads feature a Textured Cellular Silicone (TCS) head which feels very similar to a real drum. The heads respond to bounces and buzz strokes and have a good dynamic range. The cymbals have three different playing zones and the
high-hat feels fairly realistic.
The 950 has an expandable rack system which makes setup and adjustments a piece of cake. It includes a 12" snare pad, two 10" tom pads, two 12" tom pads, three cymbal pads with multiple zones, a reinforced kick pad, and realistic high hat pad on a HS740A stand.
The tone module is what really sets this kit apart from competitors. It features midi in/out, USB connectivity, individual volume faders and optional sampling capabilities. The tone generator features 64 note polyphony and 1,115 preset drum voices, along with countless effects. Basically this module has more than any drummer could want and is ideal for individuals planning to use this kit live on stage. It’s important to note Yamaha's 700 series electronic kits feature the same pads and may be the cheaper option if you don’t need a powerful tone module.
