Default NEW YAMAHA DTX-PAD

Feels great (far superior to mesh heads or rubber pads & super quite! http://dtxdrums.yamaha.com/products/dtxdrums/dtx950k/
The technology behind the new DTX pads is a cellular silicone striking surface. The cell (or air bubbles) are used to control the amount of rebound (or bounce) there is when striking the surface. Yamaha can control how many cells in the surface to mimic hitting a snare or a floor tom. The pictures are from the video about the technology behind the new DTX pad:

I DEFINITELY have to try those out....

If I ever get an electronic kit those are looking pretty sweet. Very nice indeed.

I'd love a chance to play on that new one from Yamaha!!!

The one from pearl looks interesting, though for me having an e-kit look like "real drums" has never been an issue and I'm sure that feature will drive the cost up quite a bit.

Apparently the new Pearl kit is not that great.

Not having had the chance to play one let alone see one I can't comment on it.

Well a word of advice..If you buy the XP120SD pad....you will most likely purchase the tom pads shortly after.....LOL

I thought would just get the XP120SD and someday later I might get the tom pads......that someday for me was two weeks later...LOL

I played the XP120SD pad.....gigged with it 3 times in two weeks and sold myself that sooner was better...I have now had (2) XP100T and
(2)XP120T's for couple weeks...several gigs and I do NOT regret getting them....investment ....yes! but worth it.

They feel great, Track/Trigger great and look great.....

So everyone be warned.....you will take the plung shortly after trying the snare pad....LOL

I played one of these kits the other day and loved the pads. Can they be mounted on a roland v drum rack? I hate the mesh pads on my kit and wouldn't mind kitting it out with these.
