A new brain is something I could do with after the massive over stimulation from the NAMM show, but in the mean time I'll have to make do with the new brain and pads for the Yamaha DTX 950K and 900K electronic kits.
The DTX900K is a 5 Piece drum set featuring the new DTX-PADS with a 12" Snare Pad, 3 x 10" Tom Pads and the 12" Kick Pad. For the cymbal pads the DTX900 features a 15" Cymbal Pad and 2 x 13" Cymbal Pads designed to give natural feel and sway of a cymbal all with the 3 zone function so that you can play the Bell, Ride an Bow independently, these cymbal pads can also be choked. To complete the set is the 13" hi hat Pad which is controlled using a real hi hat stand with the pad moving up and down to allow for fine control over the range of sounds, you can even play foot splashes. These pads are mounted on the sturdy and compact RS130 drum rack.
