Electronic Drums Editorial

One thought on “Yamaha DTX500

  1. Flat sound, weak simulation of dyamcins an acoustic drum has, as a consequence — machine gun effect. Plus your pads wear out in time and you will have to buy new ones, also there is no way to actually change head tension. Not like with mesh pads at all.
