Yamaha DTX 790 K Review and Price

Priced at $3,600 the DTX 790K is a professional level electronic drum set that carries a hefty price for the bells and whistles it offers.  This price is comparable to a low level professional acoustic drum set from any of the major drum brands.  Although the price is steep, the drum components included in the kit not only provide for a complete kit but also give the drummer a plethora of options for practice, studio or live performance.

The inclusion of a full set of DTX-pads, real hi-hat triggers and 3-zone choke-able cymbals provide for more realistic drum feel and authentic playing styles.  In addition the fully adjustable and durable RS130 rack system gives the drummer the ability to modify their kit to exact and price configurations.
