    Default Daxdad Discontinued?

    Just heard that Yamaha are discontinuing the Daxdad. Gutted, really wanted to buy one. What is it with Yamaha discontinuing everything lately? Can't get any more beech custom absolute drums, can't get hex-rack anymore, and now the Daxdad. Very disappointed.

    If anyone has a Daxdad they want to sell, PM me.

    Bummer, although I'm not really surprised by this one. Why they discontinued the Hex Rack still confuses me, as it seemed to be a very popular item for the short time it was available. The DAXDAD, however... aside from Steve Jordan, I think I've only seen 2 or 3 other artists using one. I doubt they ever sold very many of them.

    Still a shame though. I suppose you'll just have to go the custom route.

    It's a 12" diameter by 22" depth kick drum... great for a jungle sound, among other things.
