Yamaha has launched the MS45DR electronic drum monitor system, consisting of two compact satellite speakers and a subwoofer.

Touted for home practice and rehearsals, the MS45DR’s  lightweight left and right satellite speakers mount to any 1.5” rack frame of electronic drum kits, while the subwoofer is placed on the ground to emphasise the low-end bass tones. Sound levels can be adjusted for the whole system and the subwoofer individually, to enhance the intensity of bass playback.

Easy to install, the system includes all cables necessary for connecting the system.  

“The MS45DR allows players to easily perform on electronic drum kits without the limitation of headphones and adjust the mix to their preference,” says Steven Fisher, director of drums & percussion, Yamaha Corporation of America. “With a lightweight footprint and convenient integration into an electronic drum setup, this system was tailored specifically to the needs of drummers.”

The satellite speakers are rated at 20 w each, playing back their signals through a 0.75” dome tweeter and a 3” midrange driver. The subwoofer features a 6.5” driver, also rated at 20 w.

 The MS45DR electronic drum monitor system, priced around $500, will ship in July.
