Since its founding in 1887, Yamaha has expanded to become the world's largest, best-known and most highly-respected creator of musical instruments, including this innovative and accessible Yamaha drum and percussion equipment. From stands to drum machines and even full electronic and acoustic kits, Yamaha has the selection to beat. And they recognize the differences between drummers, so they make gear that's perfectly suited to amateurs, professionals and everyone in between, no matter the budget.
When you're looking to bring realistic acoustic sounds to your electronic kit, the Yamaha DTX700 Series Drum Trigger Module is a great option. This unit comes packed with 1268 high-quality acoustic drum voices including true-to-life details like snare buzz and tom resonance, and you can add up to 64MB of new sounds via USB. It even has training functions like Groove Check and Rhythm Gate to help you improve your timing.
For those performances where only a truly top-of-the-line instrument will do, you'll definitely appreciate the Yamaha DTX950K Electronic Drum Set.

The RS130 rack is compact enough to fit nearly any practice room or studio, so you'll have space for it no matter where you want to play.
If you've got a new kit and need accessories to match, you'll want to check out the Yamaha Drummer's Bass Drum Pedal and Throne Package.
