Yamaha introduces the EAD10 acoustic electronic drum module

With the EAD10 you can extend and layer your acoustic drum sound with more than 750 built-in Samples.

Yamaha has launched a brand new acoustic electronic drum module jam-packed with studio-quality samples and effects.

The EAD10 drum module can transforms your acoustic drum kit into a powerful digital/electronic hybrid. It allows you to play and record your acoustic drums along with your favourite artists from your music library, or on your own tracks.

The Yamaha EAD10 consists of two parts: the EAD Sensor and the EAD Module. The Sensor is simply attached to the bass drum hoop and records the entire drum kit from this position. The bass drum itself activates a Trigger in the EAD Sensor, the entire kit is picked up by the two integrated microphones.

These signals are transmitted via two cables to the EAD Module where they can be processed with effects. The result is a high quality recording of the processed sound, which can be monitored through headphones, a PA system or sent to a laptop or mobile devise via USB.

The EAD Module also offers the option of extending and layering the acoustic drum sound with more than 750 built-in Samples or up to 100 sounds of your own.

For this purpose, the Module offers Inputs for up to six Triggers such as the Yamaha DT50, which can also be used with additional Pads instead of sensors attached to the drums. A trigger for the bass drum is integrated in the EAD Sensor. When the EAD10 is connected to a computer with the appropriate software, the configured sound can be recorded directly, meaning quick and easy results without the need for additional microphones or studio equipment.

The Yamaha EAD10 works with the free iOS app ‘Rec'n'Share’. This makes it possible to shoot videos of your own performances, which can then be stored and uploaded to social media or YouTube.

To learn and rehearse songs, the music can be played back at different tempos in the app, with the option of an automatically generated click track. Jamming to your favourite music is also possible without the app: an AUX input on the EAD10 allows you to play along with your favourite tracks.

“Simply, the most creative product Yamaha have ever designed for drums in my opinion,” said Gavin Thomas, Yamaha Drums UK Marketing Manager.

“With EAD you will smile as you drum along with your favourite songs and enjoy your own drum kit like never before, then you will wonder how you have ever managed to live without it. You feel like a rock star when you sat behind EAD and it trust me it feels good.”

The Yamaha EAD10 consists of the EAD Sensor and the EAD Module and comes with an SRP of £556 including VAT.
