By combining expertise in acoustic drums with the latest digital sound technology, Yamaha created the new DTX900 Series Electronic Drum System. To ensure an authentic experience, Yamaha designed its innovative new DTX-PAD featuring a Textured Cellular Silicone (TCS) head with input from the company's legendary stable of drum artists.
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. A versatile yet compact kit that contains the RS130, an electronic drum rack born from Yamaha's extensive drum manufacturing experience. Utilizing sound technology from the highly acclaimed Motif XS and DSP effects from our high-end digital mixers, the DTX900K Drum Trigger Module has professional sounds that bring your drumming to life. The DTX900 Series lets you express yourself without thinking about the fact you are playing electronic drums, but it has all the advantages of a completely digital system. Also includes 512MB of memory for sampling and loading new sounds.
For quiet practice, playing live or as a controller for VST instruments, the revolutionary new T.C.S. head's playability and feel combined with Yamaha's acclaimed digital sound technology, make the Yamaha DXT900 Series Electronic Drums the one to beat.

Comments about Yamaha DTX900K Electronic Drumset:
Overall fantastic. The drum heads feel 'real' and are larger then the first generation. The cymbals have come a long way since the first generation also. I have not played my acoustic kit since I got this. The versatility in the various kits you can choose and design yourself are mind-blowing. There are 'practice songs' that you can play with (excellent way to teach my son and daughter to play) in every genre imaginable, not to mention you can plug in and play your own set list. Downside, there is a slight (and truly, a slight) delay in the hi hat response so you need to adjust your open/close timing a bit and I still wish they would make them look like an acoustic kit. I am on the fence with playing out with them only due to the look- vain on my part I know. Those are the only two drawback for me. Overall, I would highly recommend them for playing anywhere- even out- if your not as vain as I am. No broken heads/tuning issues. Just plug in and hammer away. Lastly, I tend to be a heavy hitter and they have stood up to my pounding. Have fun!
