An XL e-drum kit with an XL set of sounds and features.

Coming from a long and illustrious line of Yamaha e-drum sets, the Yamaha DTXTREME III XL electronic drum kit features an upgraded brain that's based upon 'Motif' AWM2 sounds. The DTXTREME III XL is configured with 5 drum pads, 3 cymbal pads, and the DTXTREME III module, mounted on the RS130 drum rack.

Live performance
Using sound technology from the highly acclaimed Motif XS and DSP effects from Yamaha's high-end digital mixers, the DTXIII drum module has professional sounds that bring your drumming to life. With a realistic hi-hat that responds naturally to hands and feet, 3 - 3-zone chokeable cymbals, one 3-zone snare, and 4 - 3-zone toms, DTXIII XL is a complete electronic drum set for the most demanding live applications.

Yamaha combined superior sounds, sampling capability, and flexible connectivity into an easy-to-navigate interface to give you the ultimate tool for creating music in the studio. It's also perfect for controlling VST software like BFD and Sonic Reality's Drum Masters. The Yamaha DTXtreme III electronic drum set's sampling capabilities set it apart from the competition and let you get any drum sound, and Yamaha has free samples available for download.

The Yamaha DTXtreme e-drum set makes practice fun and productive by giving you features that help you learn any style and allow you to track the accuracy of your playing. The Groove Check and advanced Metronome functions help you develop solid timing. The DTXIII also includes a sequencer, so you can record your own grooves any time you want or create complete backing tracks to jam along with.

Yamaha DTXtreme III Module
A shining example of technology powered by a drum company, the Yamaha DTXtreme III module uses the same technology that powers the supercharged Yamaha MOTIF XS synthesizer. With the optional memory installed, 512MB of sampling allows players to trigger a large library of custom sounds. The DTXtreme III also features USB connectivity and an advanced internal sequencer.

When you want to customize your sound, you can take any of the over 1,000 internal drum, percussion, special effects voices, and loops to create up to 50 user kits. Insert a USB stick and you can save another 1,584 kits. Taking it even further, you can assign any MIDI channel to each pad, giving you access to over 200 melodic GM voices that you can trigger from any pad. With the optional DIMM (sold separately), you have 512MB of sampling memory allowing an additional 1,016 user voices.

The Yamaha electronic drum module has 15 trigger inputs, of which 14 accept 3-zone pads. Input 10/11 is able to accept 2 mono pads by using a stereo splitter. For live performance or recording, there is a stereo pair of outputs, or 6 individual outputs that also function as 3 stereo pairs, and a S/PDIF digital output. The Aux in allows you to plug in an external music source so that you can play along or lets you sample directly into the module. There is a full-function sample editor so that you can tweak your samples once recorded. The MIDI in/out allows connection to other devices, and the USB and TO Host terminals allow easy connection to a computer. The USB also allows use of a flash drive to store and load user created data such as kits, samples, songs, and click settings.

Yamaha combined its electronic drum and digital music design teams to share technology and create this powerful electronic drum module. The user-friendly features of this drum module are exceptional and the sounds will blow you away. Several Yamaha drum artists, including Tommy Aldridge, Akira Jimbo, Russ Miller, John "JR" Robinson, and Tony Verderosa, among others, had a hand in designing the Yamaha DTXtreme III electronic drum set.

    Get One While You Can

    Comments about Yamaha DTXtreme III XL:

    This drum set uses the exact same brain as Yamaha's new DTX series drums. The pads might be different, and this rack might be plastic, but the brain itself is identical. Paying $5500 for the white drumhead version of this kit would be ridiculous. Yamaha offers an upgrade on the DTX site which patches the DTXTreme III brain so that it has EVERY SINGLE feature that the new DTX900 kits have.

    Comments about Yamaha DTXtreme III XL:

    The features of this set look great. There was a DTExtreme IIIs on display at the local GC for a few months about a year ago. Tried it out and fell in love with the sounds and the quality. These kits have most trigger zones available. I own a motif rack synth module, so I know the sounds are high quality if based on motif sounds. This is kit is basically a DTExtrem III with upgraded brain firmware. The whole kit looks pretty great on paper. Way too expensive. Initially tried to purchase at a discount but MF changed the rules after the purchase stating that Yamaha would not participate in the sale. This information was not readily available at the time of the sale.So, on value, how could a pile of plastic with one small IC board and a chip or two be worth 2600 bucks? Really!? Still, I am trying to get one anyway. I guess the high price is based on supply and demand because there sure ain't no supply.


    Pro quality drums, good price.

    Comments about Yamaha DTXtreme III XL:

    I have been considering an upgrade to my current 8 or 10 year old Roland Turbo TD-7. In 2009 this DTXtreme III was Yamaha?s top of the line kit and offered in a ?Special? series which included the Hex Rack, a 3rd cymbal and 4th tom. I was very disappointed to see the Hex Rack replaced with the light weight RS130 aluminum tube rack. I must say the RS130 is a well made rack, and has a relatively small footprint considering all of the hardware hanging on it. The Hex Rack is now available in the ?900, 925, & 950 Series?. Yamaha is recognized as a producer of high quality electronics, which is clearly the case here. I was pleased with the packing, as my new DTXtreme III XL arrived in 5 boxes. The rack included a visual of a suggested arrangement, however it was very easy to set up the kit as I preferred. I was most impressed with the tom clamps. They are an adjustable ball clamp, allowing quick, easy adjustment, to position everything just where you need it, and memory clamps to make sure set-up is quick and repetitive. Once I completed assembly and wiring, I was ready to power it up. You will need to purchase a ? jack cord to connect the trigger module to your amp as it is not included. From the time I powered up the module, to exploring some sounds through a 100 watt Simmons, DA200S down firing subwoofer monitor (also from MF), was only a few minutes. The Simmons monitor does very well in reproducing the sounds with clarity and punch. The Yamaha ?Maple Custom? kit is my favorite and has a very realistic sound. I will ?build? a custom user kit as soon as I can. This is a professional grade electronic drum set and in my opinion is better equipped and sounds better than the Roland TD-9SX V-Tour for less. MF also honored a competitor?s coupon with their lowest price guarantee, and provided very good service. A comment was made in a previous review from someone who does not own this kit. There are lower priced kits out there, if that is your main concern. However if realistic sounds in a professional grade kit matters to you, this is a good buy.
