Yamaha Electronic Drum Kits

Yamaha has a longstanding reputation for quality electronic and acoustic drums. The company's electronic models offer a responsive feel and limitless sonic possibilities — all while making it easy to rehearse and record in apartments and other places where using a full kit isn't a possibility.

If you've been considering buying an electronic kit, either for practice or to complement your existing setup, come down to one of the two Bananas at Large® Bay Area locations and try a Yamaha kit for yourself. We're convinced you'll be impressed by their realistic feel and sound, superior build quality and rich feature set.

Why Buy an Electronic Drum Kit?

Electronic drum kits offer several advantages for today's musicians. They're lightweight and portable as well as extremely versatile — with them, switching between snare and kick sounds, adding effects and triggering samples is as easy as pressing a button. They're also great for keeping your chops up when you can't get to an acoustic kit. Many models even feature built-in jamming and practicing tools.

Electronic kits are becoming an increasingly vital tool for home producers. Acoustic drums are notoriously tricky to record outside of a professional studio. With an electronic kit, you can lay down beats direct to MIDI and tweak your sound afterward, giving you a pro-quality performance without the overly quantized stiffness of a drum machine.

Yamaha Drum Triggers

If you love the feel of your acoustic kit but are looking for an easier way to capture and workshop ideas, a Yamaha drum trigger is an excellent alternative to buying a fully electronic system. The Yamaha EAD10 is an easy-to-use module that attaches to your kit, effectively turning it into a hybrid electronic/acoustic system. With it, you can trigger high-quality sampled sounds, add onboard effects, play along to MIDI metronomes, record to your DAW and much more.
