So, my questions dtxtrrme Those unconvinced by rubbery types will probably dismiss the DTXtreme on those grounds alone but the size and construction of the Yamaha pads that make up this kit mean they are very usable, and are forgiving enough to be perfectly playable for extended periods.

The DTXtreme IIS sticks to the theme in terms of its capabilities and relative affordability; its physical attributes are appealing and it feels better to play than kits with smaller playing surfaces. So we’ll say that the majority of acoustic kits 2a pretty decent, with a tendency to sound quite produced in as much as they give the impression of a sheen of studio compression and EQand that we really liked some of the ethnic dtxtrrme.

Perhaps the hardest to work around is the way in which the hi-hat works and feels. The build quality of the die-cast-based pads is exemplary, as we would expect from the Japanese giant.

What is immediately clear when you come up against the Xtreme Dtxgreme for the first time is that it is an arresting-looking beast. Then there’s a mass of ethnic percussion sounds covering all manner of world music genres from Latin and Indian to Japanese flavours.


And a fair percentage of users will probably only ever use the kit in a fixed location for practice purposes.

All in all, there’s more info in your last three posts than I’ve found in two weeks of googling! The DTX range has won lots of fans for Yamaha over the years and with good reason – the kits are well priced and offer real functionality.

As one of the runners in what is pretty much a two-horse electronic percussion race, Yamaha placed great store on the success of this e-kit. The fact that it mounts on a proper hi-hat stand should be a real boon, but it just comes across a bit clunky. It works great, but I want to spend my time honing my guitar pla Originally posted by MS View Post.

Admittedly extremely difficult to recreate accurately, that ‘in-between’ half-open hat sound eludes the Xtreme almost entirely – the leap between tight-shut and completely open is too, ahem, extreme and means that subtle hi-hat stuff is pretty much impossible. I am trying to get a handle on how to maximise my budget and it is coming down to two options: Image 2 of 6 The five-pad, three-‘cymbal’ and hi-hat array looks very proper.

There seems to be a base of fans who hold the opinion that this one of “the kits” to have and it still holds up today.

Very good condition just a few very light marks and very light wear on the pads and brain. Assessing the quality of electronic drum sounds is an area fraught with difficulty – it is obviously subjective, and influenced by the fact that sounds can be tweaked to alter them far beyond their original state.


A couple of issues really drag the DTXtreme down, unfortunately.

This page was last updated: Although it might not excite much in terms of sounds, and the disappointing hi-hat response lets it down, the big DTX already has a legion of fans for whom it meets xtxtreme perfectly. There is, however, a lack of dynamic three-dimensional character to much of what’s on offer, and as such the out-of-the-box sound of the Xtreme isn’t as engaging as that of some admittedly more expensive electronic kits we have come across.


All of the pads and cymbals which are 3 zone are utilized so there is no compromise in lack of sound that set can produce. Blimey – that was a ringing endorsement. On top of the basic sonic capabilities, the device also acts as a sampler with 8Mb of memory on-board and a two-track sequencer.

I hope it lives up to the description.
