The mesh pads use two-ply heads made by Remo. They boast outstanding noise reduction, durability, and feel when hit, as well as a great rebound, making them superbly comfortable to play. The heads can be tuned to suit your personal preferences. The snare pad is equipped with three sensors that precisely respond to delicate stick work. The pads feature wooden birch drum shells which are made and painted at Yamaha acoustic drum factories. The badges, lugs, and hoops are also standard acoustic drum parts. These shells offer the presence and beauty of authentic acoustic drums and give the drums a greater presence and stage appeal. All cymbal pads feature 3-zones, meaning they all produce different sounds at the edge, bow, and cup, as well as choke and mute functionality. The ride cymbals come equipped with a hit point detection function allowing them to reproduce delicate stick work.

Create high-quality videos for your socials without leaving the drum throne. The module includes individual inputs allowing for hybrid setups or easily augmenting the kit with more pads. The ability to layer up to four sounds per pad, along with stacking two different effects ignites creativity and allows you to customize your sound with professional studio quality.
