Yamaha DTX900K Electronic Drums
Yamaha has combined their expertise in acoustic drums with their latest digital sound technology to create the new Yamaha DTX900 Electronic Drum System. Yamaha designed its innovative new DTX-PAD featuring a Textured Cellular Silicone (TCS) head with input from the company’s legendary stable of drum artists.
Utilizing sound technology from the highly acclaimed Motif XS and DSP effects from their high-end digital mixers, the DTX900K Drum Trigger Module has professional sounds that bring your drumming to life. The DTX900 Series lets you express yourself without thinking about the fact you are playing electronic drums, but it has all the advantages of a completely digital system, the great news is that if you want to involve your kids, you can also find the best drum sets for kids.
For quiet practice, playing live or as a controller for VST instruments, the revolutionary new T.C.S. head’s playability and feel combined with Yamaha’s acclaimed digital sound technology, make the Yamaha DXT900 Series Electronic Drums the one to beat.
The Simmons SD600 is an affordable, sturdy electronic drum set that plays great and is easy to set up and adjust. Its mesh drum heads and larger ride cymbal make it feel a little more like a real drum kit. It offers 35 different simulated kits, including classic rock, hip-hop, country, jazz, and more. A few of them don’t sound as realistic or detailed as we’d like, but the SD600 offers an unusually diverse array of sounds, and you can easily modify the simulated kits and sounds through an iOS app.
The Alesis Nitro Mesh is something of a minor miracle—a very affordable kit that gives beginning drummers everything they need and nothing they don’t. It’s smaller than the other kits we tested, so it may be a tight fit for large adults. It also may not be sturdy enough to tolerate the pummelling that a skilled drummer may produce. But for the grade-schooler or teenager who wants to try out drumming, it’s an ideal choice.
