Today's drummers are faced with many challenges. Not only are they expected to be masters of a plethora of musical stylings and genres (funk, rock, bebop, swing, latin, etc...) and rock-solid anchors of their band in terms of tempo, volume and mood, they're expected to do so despite the limited opportunities for practice the loudness and size of their instrument affords. In other words, drummers can't stay up all night perfecting licks in time for band practice because spouses, roommates and neighbors just don't appreciate 4am drum solos.

So what can drummers do? They can continue to take their percussive aggression out on couch cushions (expensive to replace), buy a practice pad (useful but by no means a replacement for a drum set) or they can do themselves a favor and invest in the Yamaha DTXplorer electronic drum kit.

Trust The Yamaha Legacy

Yamaha has been crafting the most requested drums for worldwide for touring, festivals and recording for over 20 years. This same celebrated craftsmanship and attention to detail stands behind the Yamaha electronic drum line as they release drums that sound good, feel good and stand up to the test of time.

The Voices: Better (and More Versatile) Than The Ones In Your Head

The Yamaha DTXplorer features 32 factory kits, 10 user kits and over 200 drum, percussion and effects voices. The individual voices can be used to build custom kits that can be employed at a moments notice. Say, for example, your cover band's vocalist decides he wants Oye Como Va to follow Crazy Train in your set but forgets to tell you until halfway through the solo break on the iconic Osbourne tune. No problem, right? You've programed one of the DTXplorer's user kits with latin percussion sounds suitable for any Santana jam and can switch kits with the press of a button. In this example (and, given the time, we could offer a dozen more) the DTXplorer is both a fine instrument and a problem-solving machine.

The Feel: Natural and Quiet

The DTXplorer's high-impact rubber pads are designed to maintain the natural feel and rebound that drummers are used to getting from their acoustic drums with the added benefit of near-silent attack. This way, you can avoid "stick sound" bleeding into the tones of the drum voices AND play your kit anywhere at anytime without fear of retaliation from sleep-starved neighbors. And, with a sturdy folding ribbed rack to mount them on, you can be confident that your drum and cymbal pads will stay where you set them.

The Extras: Because The Learning Never Stops

Because good drummers never stop learning, the DTXplorer has features like Groove Check and Rhythm Gate built in to help any drummer stretch and strengthen their abilities. For example, to tighten up your groove, engage the Rhythm Gate mode which automatically mutes the drums if your playing slips out of time with the click. The Groove Check function tracks a players accuracy by checking the dynamic consistency of their strokes to help increase playing precession and control.

Product Description

The Yamaha DTXplorer Electronic Drum Set is the latest from the legendary Yamaha electronic drum family. For over a decade, Yamaha DTX electronic drums have set new standards. From the DTXpress to the DTXtremeIIS, Yamaha has continually raised the bar.

Introducing the DTXplorer

The Yamaha DTXplorer is the lowest priced full-featured 5-piece configured set on the market. This drum set includes high-impact rubber pads with natural feel and rebound, mounted on a sturdy folding ribbed rack. For added convenience, the set also features an FP-6110 bass drum pedal and coded cabling snake for quick and easy setup.

Features

32 Factory Kits, 10 User Kts, 214 Voices
The 32 factory programmed kits give you a wide variety of kits that can be used in almost any musical situation. The 10 user kits allow you to build custom kits using any of the 214 voices for your particular needs as a musician.

Groove Check with Rhythm Gate
The DTXPL module has our popular Groove Check function, but takes it to the next level as a learning tool. You can engage the Rhythm Gate so that when you play out of time the module will mute the drums until you get back in time with the click.

Multi Zone Input
The snare input will accept a three zone pad giving you the head, rim shot, and cross stick sounds. The cymbal inputs will accept dual zone cymbals and allow cymbal choking.

Drum Pedal Included!
The DTXPL comes complete with an FP-6210 strap drive pedal so you don't have to purchase a pedal seperately.

"I like it a lot"
Sound: The different sounds on this kit is of amazing quality for this price. The built in 32 kits sounds awesome, but there is 10 slots for your own customized kits too, if you don't like the kits that are in the module already. You can mix with a lot of sound settings such as reverb, cutoff and such, and of that you can make a really good sounding kit. If you're still not satisfied with the sounds (though you should be, it sound awesome), it's really easy to hook up to a drum program of some sort, like Toontracks Drumkit from Hell Feature: Everything you need for the drums itself is included (exept drum throne and stick) and it's pretty much just set it up and play, shouldn't take more than 30 minutes. Ease of Use: The module is really simple to navigate and it's very basic and easy to compose the existing sounds. Quality: The pads are of rubber, with suprisingly realistic feel, maybe not as good as more expensive drums, but they do the job very well. The kit looks great and blends nicely into most environments like your living room, bedroom etc. At first you might feel that the bass drum pad will break if you hit it too hard, but don't worry, I've had the kit for almost 6 months now, and it haven't broken, nor has it lost any sensitivity, even with the beating it has sustained from my double bass playing. Don't worry, the kit will hold up very good. Transportation is really simple, as you can fold it to at least half it's size without removing any parts. It's not something I would use on stage, but for home practice it's really good. A downside is that it doesn't have chokable cymbals, but you can add those easily, and you can also add another pad to the kit by plugging it in at the bass drum. Value: For the price I kinda wish there would have been chokable cymbals, but considering the sounds compared to other kits in this price class, it's totally worth buying. It holds up great and can take A LOT of beating. If you think of buying it, just do it, it's really great. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to call the support yet, which I think is worth a ten. The Wow Factor: It looks really good, feels really good and sounds really good, what's not to want? Overall: I will probably buy an acoustic kit in a few months for band practice, but for home use I think will have this kit for atleast 5 years more.

"Great bang for your buck"
Sound: The drum voices are pretty good for an entry level e-kit. I was pleasantly surprised being a long time Roland user. Nice attack to some of the snare sounds, reasonable body to some of the kick sounds, crisp hihats. Ease of Use: Very easy to use, great for those just starting out. The manual is fairly easy to understand also. Quality: Quality seems OK at this stage. The aluminium rack seems sturdy. Actually what I really like about this kit is how little space it takes up. It's also a dream to transport as it folds down to fit in the back of (most) wagons with everything still attached. Value: Excellent value for money in the entry level market Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with customer support yet Overall: I also have a Roland TD8kv kit which I use for home practise. This Yamaha kit was for my wife (she's right handed, I'm left handed). It's a fantastic entry level kit for those learning or whose kids want to "have a bash". Actually, I've been playing for many years and I love it too !
