New flagship, mid-range kits from Yamaha

Yamaha has released a new module and two new kit ranges following on from the DTX6 series.

The new flagship DTX10 series is powered by a new DTX-PROX module. It features VAD-style wooden shells, Roland/ATV-style multi-trigger drum pads and, for the first time, a choice of  Yamaha TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) or Remo two-ply mesh heads. Also making a debut is a new three-zone 17” ride cymbal.

The mid-range DTX8 series comes with the lower-spec DTX-PRO module and the same birch shells as the DTX10 range.

Initial street pricing looks very competitive, with the DTX8 series starting at $2,800 and the DTX10 line pegged at around $4,625.

We’ll have more details in a full report in our November edition.
