Highly-Regarded Electronic Drum Kits Named 'Best New Drum Set of 2007'

DTXAward WN rel 012808
Brian Berk, editor of Music & Sound Retailer magazine, presents the coveted 'Best New Drum Set of 2007' Music & Sound award to Yamaha representatives on the floor of the NAMM industry trade show. The award, which went to the DTXPRESS IV SPECIAL and STANDARD kits, is chosen by dealers, who know best.

Both DTXPRESS IV kits feature an easy-to-master module that incorporates the same technology that powers Yamaha's Motif synthesizers, round cymbal pads and three-zone snare drum pads. Yamaha is the only manufacturer that makes both professional acoustic and electronic drums in both categories.
