Yamaha DTX950K Price Review

The 950K has pretty much anything and everything a drummer would want in an electronic drum kit.  At a price of roughly $5,400 it is the most expensive of Yamaha’s electronic drum sets.  This set rivals Roland’s top electronic drums and features high end DTX-PADs for authentic practice and drum feel.  The top notch DTX 900 series module also allows the drummer many options for replicating authentic acoustic drum sounds as well as percussive and unique sounds that only electronic drums can create.  With a curved upper rack, the Yamaha HEXRACK allows for better tom position and expansion.
