The first new model in the Yamaha DTX Series is the DTX920k. Fully equipped with DTX-PAD drum pads with the DTX900M Drum Trigger Module in its centre, the 920k is versatile and professional in every sense and feature. The new Kick Pad KP100 features an improved feel with its more responsive head and can easily accommodate a double foot pedal.

Another stunning top model from Yamaha is the DTX760k, offering state-of-the-art drum sounds for players of all styles and genres. Equipped with the most professional DTX-PADs Yamaha has ever created: The 12-inch, 3-zone Snare Pad XP120SD and three 10-inch Tom Pads XP100T, the 760k is a dream come true. It also features the DTX700 module, Hi-Hat Pad, mounted on a normal Hi-Hat stand, three Cymbal Pads and the KP100 Kick Pad.

The most compact and complete solution in the series is the DTX720k. It offers the same professional drum sounds as the new DTX760k, having the same DTX700 module as its heart and brain. However, it uses the newest model of Yamaha's DTX-PAD: The 8.5-inch, 3-zone Pad XP80 as snare and three 7.5-inch XP70 Pads as toms, all attached to the brand-new RS502 rack system.

You can now create new kits, change existing kits, save, load and manage your content and samples with the convenient iPhone and iPad app. With the new DTX700Touch, you have every parameter of your DTX700 drum kit under control at your fingertips - install this editor APP on your iOS device and work with your kit via a simple USB connection.

From beginners to professionals, the new Yamaha DTX e-dum kits offer an ultra-realistic playing experience, with better response and enhanced performance.
