Introducing the Yamaha DTX6 series electric drum kitThe DTX6 series drums are equipped with great sounds, multi-zone pads and a host of features to help faithfully recreate the sound and feel of an acoustic kit. Compact, lightweight and convenient - you can have all the benefits of an an electric kit whilst still achieving that acoustic kit experience.
The DTX6 series features the DTX-PRO module with it's innovative KIT MODIFIERs, to spark creativity and deliver superb performance in a compact configuration. The original Yamaha TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) head surface used in the flagship models, combine with fantastic real drum sounds and natural ambience captured in world-renowned studios, provide an authentic playing experience.
With three kit configurations available (see specifications for details), there is a kit to suit any need. Whether its home practice or for lightweight gigging, the reliability in sound and construction of the DTX6 series will give you the edge.
Real sounds that drive the drummerThe acoustic drum sounds built into the DTX-PRO are all real sounds recorded in world renowned recording studios. As well as recording the direct drum sounds though, the unique natural ambience of the studios where they were recorded was also sampled.
Performances by leading Yamaha drums artists were recorded and mixed by a team of recording engineer to give the final audio files. The project sound director, an electronic musical instrument development professional, specified exacting recording techniques to capture the full detailed sound of each drum and cymbal, from the initial attack, until the very end of the natural sound.
Intuitive functionality that stirs creativityThe KIT MODIFIERs condense the sound creation know-how that Yamaha has accumulated over decades into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION, and EFFECT. A wide range of tonal possibilities are available thanks to Yamaha engineers — from the natural sound of acoustic drums, through to live performance sounds, and heavily effected sounds.
A playing experience in a class of its ownYamaha's original TCS head surface uses a foamed silicone material that contains thousands of air bubbles. With the perfect level of firmness and rebound that allows players to hit hard, TCS offers a realistic, natural feel that inspires you to want to keep playing, and because the surface never loosens, every strike feels perfect.
In addition, a unique floating structure, without any direct contact with the head and body parts, prevents vibration from being transmitted elsewhere, while also improving pad sensitivity. The air bubbles in the TCS head also serve as a cushion to soften the stick sound.
Reliable Yamaha hardwareYamaha's HS650A hi-hat stand is included with the DTX6K2-X and DTX6K3-X.
