This exclusive Limited Edition DTXREME IIIS kit combines the drum rack and the drum and cymbal pads from the DTXtreme IIS kit with the upgraded DTXTREME IIIS module.

Yamaha created the DTXTREME IIS Electronic Drum Set by parlaying their time-tested technology research with advanced drum manufacturing. This features 6 great-feeling drum pads and three cymbal pads, and a curved rack system. Soft, 3-zone rubber pads offer players the ultimate in performance comfort, natural feel, and rebound. Each pad includes an assignable controller for pitch, voice selection, or other parameters, while the snare pads can also assign strainer control. The hi-hat controller combines a real drum stand with an electronic pad for a traditional look and feel.

Coming from a long and illustrious line of Yamaha electronic drum kits, the DTXTREME IIIS module features a brand new brain that's based upon 'Motif' AWM2 sounds.

The DTXTREME III has an outstanding sampling capability (with optional memory installed) and a powerful sequencing engine. With USB MIDI on board, the DTXTREME III is not only a standout stand-alone instrument, it can function as the front-end of a complete music production system embracing live performance, rhythm training, music creation and studio recording.

The DTXTREME's preset kits and voices are just the beginning. You also have full WAV/AIFF sampling capability that lets you store your own sounds and compile your own kits, and a MIDI sequencer to drive new beats.

    First Electric set I ever got, and likely the last I'll need

    By Bradford "DeadWeezyl" Harkness

    from san Diego/St Louis

    Comments about Yamaha DTXtreme IIISP Special Electronic Drum Set:

    I went to get the Limited edition set and after comparing the two purchased this one. The set itself is fantastic. Only complaint is the set up directions are not very good. the sound is realistic and the 3 zone/2 zone pads add a good dimension to play that lends to the realism. it feels and reacts just like an acoustic kit. The presets are fine but the ability to sample and create new sets is useful and fun and relatively easy- HOWEVER you need to have a USB storage device and DIMMs installed in the head unit (extra cash). use alot of noise samples and harsh percussions. Compared to the V-pros this is a better deal in my mind as you have the capabilities and save a bit of scrap. Non mesh heads but still fantastic realism.

    Excellent choice but..

    Comments about Yamaha DTXtreme IIISP Special Electronic Drum Set:

    1st off, this is an excellect kit. Things that could make it better are: #1 All toms are the same size, it'd be nice to have two 10's and two 12's #2 two peice hi hat similar to Roland's #3 This version didn't come with the 360 tom mounts as the first version did. #4 Slightly longer boom extension for the cymbal stands.

    Words can not describe how GOOD this kit is :)

    Comments about Yamaha DTXtreme IIISP Special Electronic Drum Set:

    Playing this yamaha DTXtreame IIISP Special Eletric Drum Kit is just like play an acustic. This kit is just aweosome. I think it is better than the Roland $7,000 kit. My friend owns the Roland and it just does not compare. This kit is good for gigs, it is durable, it is a lot of fun, it is what you want or you would not be still reading this review. IF you a want a pro kit buy this yamaha. YOu will not regret it. Uncle Sam would say "I want you to buy the Yamaha DTXtreame IIISP Kit Today" Go to GuitarCenter and buy it if you want a Electric kit.
