When he retired, his wife and son bought it for him. The build quality of the die-cast-based pads is exemplary, as we would expect from the Japanese giant. Its very old and the sounds are very dated i would pass on it. Highly recommended for the right price. It takes a while to get things into shape when you grapple with individual clamps and rack legs for the first time, but regular Xtreme giggers will soon have their own set-up routine down pat.

There’s much that’s agreeable about the physical attributes of the DTXtreme. There seems to be a base of fans who hold the opinion that this one of “the kits” to have and it still holds up today.
There is, however, a lack of dynamic three-dimensional character to much of what’s on offer, and as such the out-of-the-box sound of the Xtreme isn’t as engaging iie that of some admittedly more expensive electronic kits we have come across.

The price includes pedal, stool etc, but I’m not worried about that.
Snare stand is very basic and the rack is missing a few pieces but with the included stands, you’ve got a co Loads o’ synth modules. Great – thank you. Our Verdict Although it might not excite much in terms of sounds, and the disappointing hi-hat response lets it down, the big DTX already has a legion of fans for whom it meets demands perfectly.

Have spoken to the seller – he says yes, I know it’s ten years old, in perfect working order with very little wear and tear; never been gigged.
Has all the tone and vibes you’d expect from a high-end electronic drum set. Perhaps the hardest to work around is the way in which the hi-hat works and feels.
