Product Description

Look at the Special Edition as an upgraded version of the DTXPRESS III. The Special Edition contains all the features of the DTXPRESS III, with the addition of an ergonomic curved rack; 3 round multi-zone cymbal pads (3-zone, 2-zone and mono); and a high hat controller with the unique combination of an acoustic-type stand and electronic pad.

This kit even includes a bass drum pedal and a drum throne. Features include more than 1,000 sounds, 128 GM voices, 80 drum kits, 127 songs, an integrated 2-track sequencer, 3-zone snare pad, the Groove Check practice feature and easy-view backlit display.

The new rack system is designed to fold up into a compact unit with your pads and trigger module still attached. Light in weight, the rack system is easy to move so when it's not in use, simply fold it up and place it against the room wall.

48 Factory and 32 User Kits
The wide variety of preset drum kits gives you a kit styled for virtually any musical situation. There are kits programmed for Rock, Jazz, Latin, and special effects kits great for sound tracks or radio and TV jingles. For special situations, there are 32 user programmable kits that you can program using any of the 990 drum and percussion voices. Plug in headphones and practice any time of the day or evening.

Play along with the 95 preset songs or your favorite music
There are 95 songs covering many musical styles that are great for developing your ability to play in any musical situation. Play along with the prerecorded drum track, or mute the drums and play along with the rhythm and melody tracks. This is a great tool for developing your groove and the nuances of playing different musical styles. You can plug your MP3 or CD player into the auxiliary input and play along with your favorite prerecorded music. You can also record your playing with the internal sequencer to analyze your playing.

New Round Cymbal Pads
The DXPIIISP has our all-new round cymbal pads. The 3 zone PCY150S ride, 2 zone PCY130S and single zone PCY130 crashes and RHH130 hi-hat pad give you the freedom to express your musical ideas even better than before. The PCY150S ride gives you the bell, bow, and edge sounds making the ride respond to every nuance of your playing. The crashes give you access to three cymbal sounds at a time and the PCY130S has choking capability. The RHH130 mounts to a standard hi-hat stand (included) giving you the expression of a real hi-hat. Heel splashes and hi-hat "barks" are as natural as they are on a pair of acoustic hi-hat cymbals.

Snake Cable
The DXPIIISP kit comes with a stereo snake cable with labeled jacks. This makes it easier to hook everything up out of the box, and faster to hook it all up again if you are moving the kit to gigs or recording sessions.

Folds up for compact storage
The DXPIIISP kit is mounted on a compact drum rack so it won't take up a lot of space when you are playing. When not in use the kit folds flat for storage in a closet without having to disassemble the rack or remove the pads.

Groove Check
Engage the Groove Check feature while using the click or while playing a song and DXPIIISP will show your beat placement accuracy. It indicates if you are ahead of, behind, or right on the beat and shows any fluctuation in your playing accuracy.

Three Zone Snare Pad
The TP65S three zone pad gives you the snare, rim shot, and cross stick sound all from the same pad. This allows for a performance that is very much like playing on an acoustic snare drum.

MIDI IN/OUT, TO Host Jacks
You can access the 125 General MIDI voices from a controller or transmit other MIDI information between the DXPIIISP and any other MIDI device via the MIDI IN/OUT. You can transmit MIDI data to and from your computer via the TO HOST jack to store kits or sequences on your computer.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (175 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great Value"
Sound: My first E-set. Took awhile to get used to. Preset kit/sounds are all pretty good. Plenty of sounds to choose from and combine. Many of the cymabls sound very good, some great crash and ride sounds, some nice bells too, but manby need tweaking as the are too loud compared to the ride. Furthermore, the default cymbal volume on most kits are too loud in comparison with the drums, a little teaking of the volume is in order there as well, IMO. The high tom on most kits needs improvement, it is the only drum sound that sounds electric when playing fast singles or doubles. The med and low toms on most kits sound more authentic. Good snare sounds and dozens to choose from. Most of the rim shot sounds that go with each snare are pitched too high, sound like you are hitting two differnt snare drums, but the pitch of the rim shot and or snare can be tweaked to make them sound more natural. Some real nice kick drum sounds as well. The hi hat soudns range from acceptable to very good, but intricate/fast hi hat playing often results in missed trigers (same with the ride and bell). Getting a half open sound on the high hat is tricky, I'll have to see if I can adjust this, but for now I get either a closed tight sound or an open swishy sound, finding the half way point is hard. Feature: Cheap stool and pedal, but they work fine. Hi hat stand is great, feel is pretty good. Quality: Everything is made very well, no problems at all. The chords are a bit chinsy, but I don't know if higher priced E-kits use thicker ones or not and they do the job, so? Value: I haven't compared them to other E-kits so I'm not really sure wahts out there. But for $1,500 and some change these are a great Value, IMO. Great for recording at home! You'll never get real drums to sound as good in your bedroom, plus the cost of good mics for real drums would could run you as much as this kit costs! Manufacturer Support: Dont know. The Wow Factor: Looks pretty cool, works very good, great value. Overall: I use these for home recording, they get the job done and done very well. In the mix you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who could tell these aren't real drums. I used to hate E-drums, Iv'e been an acoustic guy my whole life and always will be BUT, I'm also a songwriter how lives in an apartment. I can play late at night and recording with this kit is a breeze and the sound I get on my demos sound much more professional then when I used to record with my acoustics. Keep in mind I bought these for my songwriting/recording. Although they are a great product and I'm sure would sound fine in a club I would never use them playing out, for a live stuff I'm an acoustic guy. Change is good, in time I'll probably upgrade to a top of the line E-kit, but I'm in no hurry.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very nice set!"
Sound: The preset sounds this set comes with are incredible. I am amazed. Feature: The only thing that could make this set better is to include a midi interface for hooking up and recording to a computer. Quality: I am starting to notice some wear on the rubber skins on the highhat after only a couple of months of use. Value: Hard to imagine spending 1600 bucks on a drum set but..... Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: Very nice appearance.
