Yamaha today launched the MS45DR electronic drum monitor system, allowing drummers to achieve a natural, organic sound for their electronic drum kit performances with customizable volume control.
The MS45DR features a 2.1 loudspeaker system, including two compact, lightweight left and right satellite speakers that mount to any 1.5-inch rack frame of electronic drum kits, integrating perfectly into the setup, and a subwoofer that is placed on the ground to emphasize the low-end bass tones.
Ideal for home practice and rehearsals, the MS45DR electronic drum monitor system eliminates the restriction of headphones while conveying the sensation of playing acoustic drums, with realistic stereo sound. Sound levels can be adjusted for the whole system and the subwoofer individually, to enhance the intensity of bass playback. Easy to install, the system includes all cables necessary for connecting the system.
“The MS45DR allows players to easily perform on electronic drum kits without the limitation of headphones and adjust the mix to their preference,” said Steven Fisher, director of drums & percussion, Yamaha Corporation of America. “With a lightweight footprint and convenient integration into an electronic drum setup, this system was tailored specifically to the needs of drummers.”
The satellite speakers are driven with 20 watts each, playing back their signals through a .75-inch dome tweeter and a 3-inch midrange driver. The subwoofer features a 6.5-inch driver with 20 watts.
Pricing and Availability
The MS45DR electronic drum monitor system (MSRP: $499.99) will ship in July.
