    Yamaha DP Series - "Sublime"


    I (or rather my parents, because I was 14) bought this drum kit secondhand for Christmas 2 years ago for 450 euros, including cymbals. In terms of music, it suits almost anything. Personally, I'm not a sound pro, but compared to the first kit I had i…

    Yamaha DTXtreme Standard - superapollo's review


    I took my first seat behind the Yamaha DTXtreme Standard 6 months ago, and I find it to be the perfect practice kit. Once you get the feel for the pads and get everything positioned to your liking, this is the most important part of enjoying an elect…
