The innovative scheme is completely free of charge and without obligation. Its aim is to allow customers the opportunity to use a DTX900 or DTX700 series set for up to 7 days so that they can evaluate the instrument and suitability for their use and ambitions in their own environment, set up by trained staff from Yamaha's dealer network.
Yamaha expect demand to be very high and the loan stock is inevitably limited so they say to take advantage of the programme please visit your local Yamaha dealer.
Yamaha's Gavin Thomas told Sonic State, "Yamaha is the first and only manufacturer of drums to offer its customers the opportunity to 'Try Before You Buy' and we are extremely delighted to be able to expand the scheme to include the new DTX700 and DTX750 kits alongside the DTX900 series."
Yamaha tells us that the DTX900K and DTX950K have proved highly popular with serious amateur players and top professional drummers alike, thanks to a combination of great sounds and authentic acoustic 'playability'. They say that the DTX700K and DTX750K are perfect for semi-pro drummers and recording enthusiasts.
Each of the four kits feature Yamaha's unique 'Textured Cellular Silicone' pad technology, which the company says offers unprecedented dynamic control, comfort and feel for players along with unprecedented low volume. Alongside the new pad technology, the DTX900 and DTX700 modules combine advanced sound technology and a wide variety of superb samples from many of Yamaha's acoustic drum models, providing a wide palette of sound and creative options for players. Yamaha says that, coming complete with Cubase AI5 software, the DTX900 & DTX700 series can be linked directly to the computer to discover the world of Music Production, recording and editing in great detail.
