Yamaha DTX8K-X Electronic Drum Kit – Real Wood Finish



The DTX8K-X electronic drum kit boasts a remarkable recreation of authentic drum sounds and real-room ambience recorded in world-renowned studios. The drum set is further customizable with its AMBIENCE, COMP, and EFFECT Kit Modifier knobs that allow drummers to create their unique soundscape.

Yamaha’s original TCS heads are used for the snare and toms, ensuring a comfortable and natural playing experience with an impressive rebound. The beautiful wood shells, built and finished at Yamaha’s acoustic drum factories, add to the overall aesthetic appeal of the drum set. The snare, tom, and hi-hat pads offer two playing zones, while the cymbal pads offer three, providing a more dynamic and expressive drumming experience. The snare pad and ride cymbal are even equipped with hit point detection functions to accurately reflect your playing. The DTX8K-X utilizes Yamaha’s professional system hardware, making it a reliable and high-quality choice for drummers.

  • Reproduces delicate cymbal work
  • Increased freedom of setup
  • Easy recording and editing with the app
Textured Cellular Silicone Pads

The Yamaha TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) heads have a one-of-a-kind internal design that offers a realistic response with a genuine hardness and rebound. The treated surface of the heads also prevent stick sliding, giving the drummer a natural feel that inspires extended playing. The snare and tom pads have a feel that closely resembles their acoustic counterparts and will remain tight, even after repeated use, ensuring optimal feel at all times. The snare pad is also equipped with a hit point detection function, adding to the musician’s ability to express their music creatively.

Unrivalled playability

The playability of electronic drums is greatly impacted by their ability to accurately recreate the behavior of a real drum when struck. Yamaha has extensively researched this aspect, incorporating the knowledge into the design of their DTX-PRO drums, resulting in a true representation of the instrument’s behavior. Further improvements were made through evaluations by professional drummers worldwide. With Yamaha’s expertise in crafting music hardware, they have created a combination of expertly designed modules and pads that offer exceptional playability.

Rec ‘n’ Share App

The Rec’n’Share App offers several convenient features that help you practice more efficiently with your favorite songs, such as the ability to change the tempo of tracks, add a click track to songs that don’t have one, and loop sections of audio. The app also includes a recording function, allowing you to capture your playing. Additionally, the app makes it simple to create drum videos by combining audio from the DTX-PROX and video captured from an attached device. You can easily trim and edit the video, adjust the mix, and share the final product directly from the app.
