This revolutionary flagship model is fully equipped with the DTX-PAD drum pads. To develop these next-generation drum pads, Yamaha used its many years of experience designing acoustic drums to produce drum pads that feel good when you play them, that work well in performances, and that are fantastically quiet.

They will change the conventional view of electronic drums. In addition, with the DTX900, a high quality tone generator descended directly from the world-renowned MOTIF series synthesizers, and the HEXRACK, a genuine rack made by a dedicated drum hardware manufacturer, this series is truly the pinnacle of electronic drumming technology. Live performances, recordings, production, practice sessions at home or in the studio-wherever you are, this monster machine will bring out your full drumming potential.

DTX-PAD - a next-generation electronic drum pad.

DTX-PAD achieves an exquisite feel that satisfies even the world's top drummers. The surface of the DTX-PAD, features a "Textured Cellular Silicone Head", made using unique molding technologies developed by Yamaha. It has the different stick response for the snare and toms to provide the natural feeling when you use the pads in a drum set. It has achieved such a high level playability that top drummers who are used to playing on acoustic drums are able to play on them naturally.

The sensitivity of it has dramatically increased by employing a floating design and It achieves a totally different level than current electronic drum pads in terms of quietness. The durability of it is proven by Yamaha's numerous severe tests. The DTX-PAD, a next-generation electronic drum pad that is recognized by the world's top drummers, is the one to beat in the electronic drum pads.

Realistic Cymbals and Durable Kick Pads

The DTX950 uses the vertically mobile RHH135 hi-hat pad. This pad is incredibly quiet, and its pedal has a natural feel. You can control different sounds with the pad and edge areas, and foot splashing is supported. The HS740A hi-hat stand is included. There are two cymbal pads, the 15-inch PCY155 and the 13-inch PCY135. They both have three zones, the pad, edge, and cup.

Each zone produces a different sound. Because sticks bounce and vibrate on these pads in almost the exact same way that they do on real cymbals, you'll get that same feeling that you do playing on an acoustic drum set. Also, you can choke the cymbal pads by grabbing their edges after you hit them. the DTX950 uses KP125W kick pads, which guarantee stable play even when you are using double foot pedals. A protective sheet that covers the entire drum head makes each kick pad powerfully durable.
