Yamaha DTX8K-M E-Drum Set, Black Forest

Defines Yamaha’s upper mid-range Electronic Drum Kits. promises professional sounds, features and looks for players of all levels.

Overview By GAK

The DTX8K-X sits just below the flagship Yamaha DTX10 E-Drums range. Designed for intermediate drummers that want to push their drumming with more professional sounds and advanced features available.

Yamaha has used distinctive technologies to create a flagship drum kit, combining the heritage of their world-class acoustic drums with innovative digital drumming specifications.

The DTX8K-X is a 9 piece drum kit and is available in two beautifully sprayed finishes, Black Forest and Real Wood, found on numerous Yamaha Acoustic Drum Kit ranges.

DTX10K-X Kit Configuration:

  • Yamaha XP125SD-M 12” TCS Snare Pad (x1)
  • Yamaha XP105-M 10” Tom Pads (x3)
  • Yamaha KP90 Kick Pad (x1)
  • Yamaha PCY155 Pad (x1) Ride Pad
  • Yamaha PCY135 Pad (x2) Crash Pad
  • Yamaha RHH135 Hi-Hat Controller
  • Yamaha RS8 Hex Rack System

Each drum pad featured on the DTX-8K-X uses Yamaha Birch Shells, giving an authentic look and authentic drumming integrity. The lugs, hoops and fittings on each drum shell are the same as on Yamaha acoustic drums and feature a unique “DTX Drums” badge.

Mesh Heads

Each pad that features on Yamaha’s DTX8K-M uses a new direction for the brand. The surface is made from 2 plys of a unique weave, which feels like the coarse surface of a coated drum head. It’s an alternative to Yamaha’s usual TCS technology, which users can also opt for with the DTX8K-X.

All these exceptional feeling pads mount to the incredibly durable RS8 Drum Rack. The RS8 comes with clamps for 3 toms and 3 cymbals, as well as a specific module mount, a first for the DTX Series.

Yamaha has also thought about the footprint by removing a left-hand bar to mount a Hi-Hat Stand. The RHH135 Hi-Hat Controller mounts to the HS650A Acoustic Hi-Hat Stand (included) and there is plenty of space to comfortably use a double kick pedal (sold separately).

The XP125SD-X 12" snare pad mounts to the SS662 snare stand (included), which makes for a more stable playing experience.

Powered By The DTX-PRO Drum Trigger Module

The DTX-PRO Drum Trigger Module is Yamaha’s second most powerful Drum Sound Module to date. It offers totally new audio quality, packed with new sounds, recorded in some of the best studios in Europe.

The 400+ internal sounds can be treated with a host of studio effects, so users can tailor the sound of their kits to their exact needs. You can also load up to 1,000 of your own samples, meaning the DTX-PRO is ready for all drumming scenarios.

Unique to the DTX-PRO Module, are the Kit Modifier Knobs. Use these to instantly change the sound of the kit by adjusting real sampled room ambience (not just digital reverb), kit compression, and other effects in real-time.

The DTX-PRO also has up to 10 outputs for all recording or live situations, perfect for the professional player. Each channel also has EQ and Transient Adjustment, usually found in studio software, and allows you to change the attack and decay of the sound to suit your needs.

To aid Live Monitoring, the DTX modules come equipped with high precision, low distortion, low noise and a high-power headphone amplifier. The circuitry delivers high-fidelity sound directly to the player and has been optimised for electronic drums. The DTX-PROX has both 6.35mm and 3.5mm headphone outputs for ease of use, whether it is headphones or in-ear monitors. The DTXPRO has 6.35mm only.

The DTX-PRO and PROX have borrowed the best practice functions from previous DTX models. There are 10 training functions that are ideal for players of all standards, as well as 37 training songs that allow you to learn various genres. Drummers of all levels will find the training functions a useful tool for daily practice.


Taken from the popular EAD10, Rec’n’Share allows you to record audio and video along with songs from your music library and then share your performances with the world.

Download the Rec’n’Share app on either iOS or Android and connect your chosen device to the DTX-PRO Module with a USB cable and an adaptor (depending on the device). It can then be used for practice or video making.

With Rec’n’Share, any track which you have on your device (which you own a copy of) can be used. Any track in Rec’n’Share can have its tempo changed and have a click added to it. You can also loop sections of the track for better practice sessions.

As well as recording your playing, the Rec’n’Share App can also be used to record drum videos, by using the audio from the DTX-PRO or PROX, and the video capture of the attached device. Videos can be trimmed and edited, mixes changed, and the final result can be easily shared directly from the app.


Each version of the DTX8 and 10 kits come with a free download code for Cubase AI. By connecting the DTX-PRO or PROX to your computer via a USB cable, all recording, editing and mixing tasks found in modern music production, can be handled by Cubase.
