BUENA PARK, Calif.— With the growing popularity of electronic drum kits and the trend toward hybrid drum sets, where drummers add electronic triggers or multi-pads to augment their acoustic sets, it is easy to overlook the importance of proper amplification for electronic drums in live sound or rehearsal applications.
Yamaha’s DTX-Live Sound Solutions take the guesswork out of what drummers require for these situations by providing simple setups with professional sound. DTX-Live Sound Solutions feature “drummer-designed” setups for Rehearsal Monitoring and Stage Drum Monitoring in both stereo and mono configurations, featuring Yamaha DXR speakers and DXS subwoofers, along with the award-winning STAGEPAS 400i and STAGEPAS 600i portable PA systems.
Drummers face many challenges when it comes to amplifying electronic drums. In the case of hybrid kits, for example, it is important to have the electronic components match the audio quality and volume of the acoustic drums to create a cohesive, integrated instrument. It is also important that drummers choose audio components that can handle the wide frequency and dynamic range of electronic drum sounds. Yamaha is the only company that offers solutions for everything a drummer needs, including renowned acoustic drum sets and hardware, professional DTX electronic drums and complementary audio equipment.
