Electronic kits are a great way to practise your drums without needing a sound proof room. Yamaha have made a great electric kit that combines the great feel of a high end electric kit with the sort of wallet friendly, practical build that Yamaha are known for.
The new DTX720 electric drum kit
The DTX720k Electronic Drum Kit offers the same professional drum sounds like the new DTX760k, becuase it is using the same DTX700 Module. However, it uses the newest model of Yamaha‘s DTXPAD:
The 8.5 inch 3-zone Pad XP80 as snare and three 7.5 inch XP70 Pads as toms, all attached to the all new RS502 rack system. The result is an even more compact kit that maintains the same great professional feel & sound.
Although large in sounds and features, it is compact in size thanks to the RS700, an electronic drum rack born from Yamaha‘s extensive drum manufacturing division.
Here's what Yamaha have to say about this kit
The DTX720K features all DTX-PADs for the snare, toms and floor tom in a compact configuration. With a real hi-hat controller that mounts on the included hi-hat stand, plus our 3-zone cymbals, this kit provides great feel anywhere you play. The 3-zone snare pad can be precisely positioned with the ball clamp mount, and the kit can be expanded with up to three more pads.
