I've owned these for a couple of years now, and after lots of playing, everything works just as well as the day I bought them. The sounds are uniformly great, every facet of the sound can be tweaked, and the pads have the right amount of "bounce". You can get rimshots, and choke the crash cymbal, and they're very durable as well. Very nice.As a former drummer, (now a guitar player) I needed a set of drums that would give me realistic drum sounds, and take up a minimum of studio floor space. These things are just perfect. Our drummer in my band owns two acoustic sets & he went out & bought a set, too. They're a breeze to record, and you can play heavy without knocking your eardrums out.I also looked at a set of Rolands, and preferred the pad action on these, so that's why I went with the Yamahas. I've had a couple of acoustic sets, and though I enjoy the nuance you can get on an acoustic set, I wouldn't go back. With the ease of setup, compact size, good action, and quality sound, you can't go wrong with these. Not just great for beginners, but seasoned pros as well.

I've owned this set for 4 years now. The main rack and controller have held up very well. I only use it in the studio. The down sides that I have found are that the snare rim and the bass kick pad will wear out very quickly. These are very soft, natural rubber pads. (replacement pads are way over-priced, but isn't that the usual rub?) I haven't had any problems with the hi-hat, but the other reviews are correct. You do have to alter your playing style. The cymbals are completely inadequate. The effects are pretty much a waste. (just the usual goofy novelties thrown in for a selling hook). The drum sounds can be tweeked a bit, and are quite adquate for recording, but as I said before, you will not like the cymbals. Their decay is immediate, and they have a completely unnatural choked sound. Don't pay any attention to the one cymbal pad having the "choke" feature. These cymbals are always in the full-auto choke mode. (they're only useful as a practise tool.) Compared to the competition, this is a good buy. These will never replace my accoustic kit, but then neither will outrageously-priced Rolands.

As Good As Any

By Jazzdrummer-nq..k

Awesome Electronic drum kit as far as I know. This was my first one, I needed something that I could play at my apartment. Everything was there and I haven't had any problems with it yet. Definitely a sound investment for the money.

Good for acoustics

By Duck

from Mt. Vernon, WA

This is a great set to practice with and to use in small clubs. Never had a complaint that the bass drum was too loud like some acoustic sets. Only complaint I have is in three years I have gone through two bass drum pads and a dual cymbal pad. Bass drum pad should last longer than 8 months. I don't abuse it. Overall a great set!

These are from Yamaha????

By Jam46

from Cleveland Ohio

The orange colored module should have been a warning. The base drum samples are the worst! Nothing thick and deep, just ticky little snappy base drums. If these are Yamahas, then I think I'll stay with Alesis, Hart, or Ion. They sound 1000 times more realistic! That is my honest opinion.

yamaha dtxpressIII

By rcad

from Centerview, MO.

I have had the dtxpressIII for over a year now. It has been a very good electronic drum set for me. This drumset can take punishment well. Don't be afraid to get wild and crazy while playing. The only thing that has happened is one of the cymbals broke inside where the input is soldered to the circuit board. Easily fixable. I have played other electronic drumsets and all but this one had problems with no sound on every other hit. Never had that problem with this one. The only thing I would change is the bass drum module. It needs to be a little bigger for a double pedal. Although, you can use a double pedal and it works fine.

Good all around kit, but....

By MetalHed //m//

from New York City

Good all round kit with good noises and full ability to use most acoustic kit techniques whilst alowing you to, as some friends call it, 'cheat' using the increased sensetvity (you can change the sensetivity to compress the inputs to make small hits sound almost the same as a full strike) this way you can do crazy fills and parradiddles. One qualm I would have to say is the hihat though as it's not at all like a real one, gets the job done tho you just have to learn to play differently with it.

Great

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've been drumming for a while and this is really one of the best sets i've had. if you buy a really good foot pedal you can do some awsome double bass and i bought an extra cymbal for it and raised it up so it will be around the same size as an accustic it really is an awsome set i recomend it for beginners

Great set for the money

By Plamenski

from LA

See all my reviews

I got this set mainly for practice, because my Oak Customs are too loud. It is a great set for the money...cool sounds, easy to figure out, set-up only took about 30 minutes, taking the drums out of the boxes and stuff...the one problem I'm having now is the hi-hat and the pedal for it. it's hard to keep the hi-hat closed with this trigger, you really have to step all the way at the top of the pedal, and really press on it. But I will get the better hi-hat that yamaha has on their "special" edition kit, so this is not really something you can't fix. So go for it, it's a fun kit, honestly I wouldn't have thought that I could have so much fun playing an electric drum set.

Fine

By Xman-cOSsU

from Boston

I own this product. the drums set has a lot of different features. the biggest problem that i had with this product was that when you hit the drum pads you can here the sound of the drums stick hitting the pad. If you want to have a drum set just to play around with, this is perfect. i like the fact that you can adjust where you want each drum pad to go.

DTXpress 3 review

By GatorMike

from San Jose, CA

Nice set, easy to move. Triggers a little sensative of picking up vibrations, example: using ride and a double bass pedal, the HH will fade in a little bit. Overall, great for the money, would advise getting a extra double trigger cym pad to use as the ride to get bell sounds, and use the current single trigger ride pad in the second crash input.

great for the $$$

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've owned the kit for aprx 3mos. now & use it soley for recording purposes. Sounds great on my digital recorder. Lots of features & the sounds are infinitely adjustable. Well worth the $ considering what else is out there in this price range, nothing else compares.*the only complaint is too few inputs for add ons but it's not a huge deal, as long as you know what you're getting

Good for beginers

By Josh Letourneau

from Brighton, MI

See all my reviews

I have had this drumset for more than a year now and it is pretty good. Its only flaws are the trigers for the crash and ride. Almost the whole time I have had this set, I have had major trigger problems where I dident sound half as well as I should. If you are a beginer drumer and you really have that kind of money to spend then I say that you buy it with a pair of good headphones (to be easy on your parents.) But if you are an experianced drumer, just go out and buy a real kit.

I have owned the sp version since it came out. It records great, massive live sound, and stereo in mixer thru headphone dist. I have 1 complaint. we only pratice once a week if we're lucky and have just lost my 2nd 3-zone pad for snare. the last one was replaced under warranty. but now what?

I really Like it

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I love playing this drumset. I have it all hooked up to my Ibanez 120watt amp right up in my room. and right beside it is my guitar. It's all I could ever want in a electronic but there is one thing that I find a bit odd. The pedal for the hit hat sometimes doesn't stay closed, and if you are really rocking it out on like a solo or something the high hat sometimes has a little bit of snare in it and that can be kind of anoying when your in the middle of a solo. This is a good set but I also recommend the Roland Elsectronic set.

Great Kit for the money.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

If you are an advanced drummer this kit may not be for you but for an electronic drum set for that kind of money it is a great buy. I really like the sound it gets out of all the pads but viberations were a bit of a problem. It really reacts to every little hit or viberation.

Excellent!

By Doctor Dan

from White River, SD

Very exceptional. I have been playing Yamaha electric drums for the past 10 years and this is the best set yet. Prior to this I have been using an Alesis DM5 for the brain, but these drum sounds are truly exceptional especially the cymbal sounds. I have not been able to get this set to false trigger with as agressive playing that I can muster! Very good! I highly recommend this set to anyone.

I've owned them for a year and I love 'em!

By soundnut

from Iowa

See all my reviews

I bought these drums for use in my home studio about a year ago and have had no trouble with them at all. Our drummer has played them on gigs and was so impressed by them he bought a set. He now gigs with these instead of his Mapex maple acoustic kit. (He does still use his acoustic snare & cymbals, though.) I tried the Roland TD-3SW kit and actually preferred the sounds of the Yamaha kit. The sounds on the module are fantastic and highly customizable. You can adjust every aspect of the voices. Pitch, attack, decay, EQ, reverb, everything. If your trigger pad isn't to your liking, you can easily tweak them individually. The secret is to dig into the manual & figure out how to set it up to suit your needs. If there's a weak spot with this kit, it's the cymbals. They sound excellent, but don't have the feel of acoustic cymbals. You can't get that "shimmer" effect of a cymbal roll as well with these, but really that's a small issue when you consider everything else they do so well. As far as reliability, I've banged the living daylights out of them for a year, and they still play just fine. I'd trust them at a live gig anytime. I've had pretty good acoustic sets, and after owning these, I'm never going back. They rock!

Overall good set, some limitations with the hihats

By Poncherello

from Newport News, Virginia

Overall this is a great kit, the rack is sturdy and the drums/cymbals feel good. The chokable cymbals and three zone snare are very nice.The one thing that bothers me about the kit is the feel and sound of the hi-hats. No matter how many adjustments and programming I do, I cannot get the hi-hats to feel "right".Other than a great kit that I would not hesitate to use live.
