DTX6 Series New


“A powerful, engaging drumming experience with compact convenience”

The DTX6 series features the DTX-PRO module with it's innovative KIT MODIFIERs, to spark creativity and deliver superb performance in a compact configuration.

The original Yamaha TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) head surface used in the flagship models, combine with fantastic real drum sounds and natural ambience captured in world-renowned studios, provide an authentic playing experience.

The DTX6 Series is recommended for all drummers who want to have fun, play like a pro, need a compact kit, and want to easily transfer their skills to acoustic drums.


Real sounds that drive the drummer

No compromise has been made in recording the sound of the instruments themselves. The DTX PRO sounds have been fine-tuned to naturally follow the drummer’s performance and allow for maximum expression.

The acoustic drum sounds built into the DTX-PRO are all real sounds recorded in world renowned recording studios. As well as recording the direct drum sounds though, the unique natural ambience of the studios where they were recorded was also sampled.

Performances by leading Yamaha drums artists were recorded and mixed by a team of recording engineer to give the final audio files. The project sound director, an electronic musical instrument development professional, specified exacting recording techniques to capture the full detailed sound of each drum and cymbal, from the initial attack, until the very end of the natural sound.

The DTX pads, the drummer’s interface with their instrument, have been carefully matched to the DTX-PRO Module to offer excellent expressive capabilities.

Intuitive functionality that stirs creativity

The Kit Modifier featured on the DTX-PRO offers drummers limitless possibilities for their creativity.

The KIT MODIFIERs condense the sound creation know-how that Yamaha has accumulated over decades into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION, and EFFECT.

A wide range of tonal possibilities are available thanks to Yamaha engineers — from the natural sound of acoustic drums, through to live performance sounds, and heavily effected sounds.

The AMBIENCE knob controls the natural ambience and reverb of the drum kit sound. On acoustic drum sounds, the AMBIENCE MODIFIER knob controls the real recorded natural ambience from 0-50%. When turned up higher than 50%, high quality digital reverb is also introduced to the sound.

The COMP and EFFECT knobs utilize the "1-knob" control technology featured in Yamaha PA products.

The COMP adds one-knob compression to the whole kit sound, from subtle to very obvious, while EFFECT controls the mix of the internal effects processors. The processors are fully adjustable and have a long list of available effects to choose from.

A playing experience in a class of its own

The DTX6 series is equipped with TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) pads, providing unparalleled levels of realism, feel and quietness.

Yamaha's original TCS head surface uses a foamed silicone material that contains thousands of air bubbles. With the perfect level of firmness and rebound that allows players to hit hard, TCS offers a realistic, natural feel that inspires you to want to keep playing, and because the surface never loosens, every strike feels perfect.

In addition, a unique floating structure, without any direct contact with the head and body parts, prevents vibration from being transmitted elsewhere, while also improving pad sensitivity. The air bubbles in the TCS head also serve as a cushion to soften the stick sound.

The colors and finishes shown may vary from those on the actual products.
