Yamaha DTX8K-M Mesh Electronic Drum Kit

Want your drums to sound fantastic and look just as great? Yamaha's DTX8K-M electronic kit offers studio-sampled sounds, real wood shells, and mesh heads.

The Yamaha DTX8 Series comes equipped with the DTX-PRO module that possesses the same tone generator as the DTX-PROX module. The birch shells are painted the same way as Yamaha acoustic drums resulting in pads that are as beautiful as the real thing.

The DTX-PRO features real sounds and real sampled room ambience recorded in world-renowned studios, and KIT MODIFIER knobs that inspire creativity and hardware that is sturdy and easy to use. This new standard DTX captures the very essence of the flagship model.

- Superbly playable:
Reproducing the way a drum behaves when struck is a key factor in the playability of electronic drums.

Yamaha has undertaken an exhaustive investigation of how drums respond when hit, leveraging this information to achieve a truly faithful representation of instrument behavior. Moreover, professional drummers from around the world have evaluated the performance of the DTX-PRO, further allowing Yamaha to improve its expressive capabilities. Yamaha's expertise as a manufacturer of music hardware has allowed them to offer combinations of expertly-crafted modules and pads that deliver superb playability.

- Same tone generator as the flagship series:
The DTX8 Series features the DTX-PRO sound module, which has the exact same sound engine found in the flagship DTX-PROX module. Each module is capable of stunning sound quality. Choosing the correct trigger setting* to suit the pads being used will allow you to fully enjoy the sounds. The configuration screen read more is displayed upon initial startup.

- Reliable Yamaha hardware:
The DTX8 Series uses Yamaha drum hardware that is highly trusted by professional drummers all over the world.

Easy-to-adjust ball clamps have been adopted for the toms, while the unique boom-retractable tilter design of the cymbal holders allows them to be used straight or as booms. Snare and hi-hat stands are also included and support the player with typical Yamaha robustness, playability, and stability.

- Professional-grade headphone amp:
Yamaha understands it is incredibly important that drummers are able to hear themselves clearly, so the DTX-PROX module comes equipped with a high-precision, low-distortion, low noise and high-power headphone amplifier. This circuitry delivers high-fidelity sound directly to the player, and it envelops the player in a realistic drumming sound stage.

I watched so many vids to see if this was the kit to buy and gave it a shot but its just not a great kit for the price . All the sounds are not great . It looks super cool tho. sensors arent great either . I've played 350 dollar kits and this sounds the same in person. And shipping back is about to be a nightmare. I hate giving bad reviews but Proceed with caution or just go Roland and if you don't like the Roland sounds just hook it up to superior drummer or EZ drummer or something like that.
