Yamaha has decided to release information about their new DTX drums before winter NAMM. Yamaha basically has a new flag ship electronic drum kit. The new Yamaha DTX950K pictured above and the new Yamaha DTX900K pictured below.
The technology behind the new DTX pads is a cellular silicone striking surface. The cell (or air bubbles) are used to control the amount of rebound (or bounce) there is when striking the surface. Yamaha can control how many cells in the surface to mimic hitting a snare or a floor tom. The following picture is from the video about the new technology behind the new DTX pad:
As for the module, the new DTX module looks to be a retooled DTXtreem III module. Looks like they did pretty much what Roland did with their TD-20x module (retooled TD-20). Here’s a picture from Yamaha’s website:
