NAMM 2018 Video: Yamaha EAD10 Electronic Acoustic Drum Module

Yamaha's EAD10 is a clever new way to convert your acoustic drum performances to use different sounds, with a minimum of fuss. Here's the details.  

NAMM 2018: Yamaha has unveiled something very special, the EAD10 Drum Module, for changing acoustic played drums into electronic patterns.


"The EAD10 acoustic electronic drum module instantly transforms your acoustic drum kit into a powerful digital/electronic hybrid with sampled sounds and studio quality digital effects. It allows you to play and record your acoustic drums along with your favorite artists from your music library or from tracks from your friends and share them digitally.

With the free iOS app you can shoot, edit and upload videos of your drum performances. The EAD10 enhances every aspect of your drumming – the way you practice, record and perform live and makes your acoustic drums do more."


Here's a full-on in-depth (no talking) live demo of EAD10:


  • Just attach the EAD10 sensor to your bass drum and you've created a complete hybrid system with a kick trigger and a stereo microphone.
  • The EAD10 has 50 preset and 200 user Scenes that customize your drum sound and allow you to connect triggers and drum pads to augment your setup.

  • You can shoot, mix, edit, and upload your original music videos directly from the free iOS app.
