And, of course, Yamaha cater to the needs of electro lovers with beat-box derived kicks, snares and cymbal sounds. Purchased when new, never gigged with, lightly used for solo practice, and packed away I was hoping to canvass some opinion on whether or not you think this kit is still worth buying some ten years after it was issued. Last edited by electrodrummer ; , Image 2 of 6 The five-pad, three-‘cymbal’ and hi-hat array looks very proper. 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. And it might just suit yours too.

There’s much that’s agreeable about the physical attributes of the DTXtreme.
Image 4 of 6 The Xtreme sound module is home to more than 2, voices. Image 5 of 6 The RHH hi-hat pad mounts on a normal hat stand. Pros Relatively affordable for size and physical quality of set-up. Help Contact Us Go to top. Our Verdict 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 demands perfectly.
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 do not have any Yamaha mounting hardware for the triggers though; I kept all that for my own kit. A couple of issues really drag the DTXtreme down, unfortunately.
I hope it lives up to dtxtteme description. Clearly, this is well within budget and would leave me plenty of spare cash for upgrades.
I got the kit for Christmas last year and it has barely been put to use. Perhaps the hardest to work around is the way in which the hi-hat works and feels. Of course, the arguments for and against rubber pads like these compared to mesh heads will rage forever. Browse Related Browse Related. Highly recommended for the right price.

So, my questions are: So we’ll say that the majority of acoustic kits are pretty decent, with a tendency to sound quite produced in as much as they give the impression of a sheen of dtxtremr compression and EQand that we really liked some of the ethnic stuff.

I can post a pic if interested. Assessing the quality of electronic drum sounds is an area fraught with difficulty – it is obviously subjective, and dtxtrsme by the fact that sounds can be tweaked to alter them far beyond their original state.

Different style Yamaha and Roland T-Joints may also be substituted if you choose. It says good condition I know, I know and the pictures back this iiw up.
It’s great for workaday tasks – practice, rehearsals, songwriting surely the most common uses for such set-ups – but lacks that iia sparkle to make it really special. Purchased when new, never gigged with, lightly used for solo practice, and packed away I recall that the extreme 2 hi hat is stationary. 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 demands perfectly.
No snare stand, bass drum pedal, speaker, or can of mountain dew is included with sale. I’ve repaired several Roland pad triggers but never got around to trying to fix this one. Leaving opinions about rubber pads versus mesh heads to one side for the moment, the five-pad, three-‘cymbal’ and hi-hat array looks very proper.
Great – thanks very much; you’ve been very helpful. 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.
Although the complete DTXtreme package is extensive once you’ve factored in the rack, seven cymbal and tom mounts, the pads and the brain itself, assembly is relatively pain-free. If you have any other issues, or cannot sign in, please visit our Forum Talk Section for common remedies.
