DTX6 Series New


“A powerful, engaging drumming experience with compact convenience”

The DTX 6 series features the DTX-PRO module with the innovative KIT MODIFIER, sparking creativity and delivering superb performance in a compact configuration.

The original Yamaha TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) head used in the flagship models combine with real sound and ambience recorded in a world-renowned studio to provide an authentic playing experience.

The DTX6 Series is recommended for all drummers who want to have fun, play like a pro, need a compact kit, and hope to easily transfer their skills to acoustic drums.


Real sounds that drive the drummer

No compromise has been made in recording the sound of the instruments themselves—key to any drum sound, along with the ambience of the place where they are played. The DTX PRO has been fine-tuned to follow the drummer’s performance and allow for maximum expression.

The acoustic drum sounds built into the DTX-PRO are all real sounds recorded in well-known studios. In addition, we have actual ambience elements that are unique to those studios.

A professional recording engineer has recorded and mixes performances by leading Yamaha artists, which the sound director, an electronic musical instrument development professional, has used extensively, from the initial attack until the very end of the recording.

With a sound module carefully matched to the pads that are the drummer’s interface with their instrument, the DTX6 has been fine-tuned to follow along with the player’s performance and offer excellent expressive capabilities.

Intuitive functionality that stirs creativity

The Kit Modifier featured on the DTX-PRO offers drummers limitless possibilities for their creativity.

Kit Modifier condenses the sound creation know-how that Yamaha has accumulated over decades into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION, and EFFECT. A wide range of tonal possibilities are available—from the natural sound of acoustic drums through to live performance sounds carefully crafted by engineers.

The AMBIENCE knob controls the reverberation of the drum sound; for an acoustic drum kit, up to 50% of the memory features the real ambience components of the recording studio, while 51-100% is high-quality digital reverb.

The COMP and EFFECT knobs utilize the "1 knob" control technology featured in Yamaha PA products.

COMP controls the compression effect and brings them to the front, while EFFECT controls effects that have been optimized for preset kits.

A playing experience in a class of its own

The DTX6 series is equipped with the TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) heads, providing unparalleled levels of feel and quietness.

Yamaha's original TCS head uses a foamed silicone material that contains innumerable air bubbles. With the perfect level of firmness and rebound that allows players to hit hard, TCS offers a natural, pleasant feel that inspires you to want to keep playing, and because the surface never loosens, every strike feels perfect.

In addition, a unique floating structure without any direct contact with the head and body parts prevents vibration from being transmitted elsewhere, while also improving sensitivity, and the air bubbles in the TCS head serve as a cushion to soften the stick sound.

The colours and finishes shown may vary from those on the actual products. Some models may not be available in some countries.
