Improvement over the old model
Brandon P., 14.11.2013
My previous Yamaha mount block was from a first generation DTX (from the late 90s) - I continued to use that block for a while, as the holes still fit Yamaha / Roland modules (indeed, the holes still fit the DTX Multi 12 that I purchased the new MAT-1 for). The old model had the tom arm enter vertically (perpendicular to the "face" of the module / multipad), while this model has the tom arm enter horizontally (parallel to the "face").

This change makes the mounting block _much_ more flexible in terms of positioning -- the tom arms can be used in their "natural" state, with the main tube of the tom arm positioned vertically. However, it does introduce one issue -- now, the wingnut on the top of the tom arm can potentially interfere with the module that you're mounting. For example, on the DTX Multi-12, you need to use the "full-sized" tom arm to mount the pad -- the short-armed ("YESS mount") Yamaha tom arm doesn't allow the wingnut to clear the bottom of the DTX. It's not a deal-breaker, certainly, it just means you need to be careful with your combination of hardware.

One other thing that I was wondering about before making the purchase -- although it looks like there is a "keyhole"-style hole, allowing for easy removal of the mounting block, it's not actually the case. The block still attaches to the module/multipad via 4 normal screws, and you need to unscrew / remove all four of the screws to remove the block. Again, not a deal-breaker, but just something that I wanted to point out.

Essential for using the yamaha pad
19.07.2016
Great sturdy mount. I got this with the bundle, but i find it dissapointing that it doesnt come with the pad as standard. It costs 44 euro alone and it forced me to buy the bundle. now i cant fault the quality but i think yamaha could include it. But I commend Thomann for making it part of the bundle

Essential for a gigging drummer, but overpriced
Iain Robert, 03.06.2015
The MAT-1 allows you to attaché the DTX Multi 12 (or other DTX module) to am standard Yamaha tom mount for stand mounting. It is a very simple bolt on clamp that does exactly what it is meant to. My issue is the cost, which seems excessive for some bent sheet metal, a large mounting screw and 4 machine screws to attach the mount to the module. that said, as part of the package deal with the Multi 12, it made it a bit more palatable.
