The DTX532K Electronic Drum Set by Yamaha features the DTX-PAD snare, plus a real hi-hat and 3-zone cymbal pads that allow true drum playing techniques to be developed.

The DTX-PAD snare has the proper response for developing your technique, and the real hi-hat trigger and stand lets you position the kit to match your ideal setup. The ride and crash feature cup, bow and edge voices and are "mute-able" and "choke-able". The DTX502 module includes 691 high-quality sounds and offers drum training functions, practice songs, and easy MIDI recording. The USB port allows control over VSTi software and lets you import custom wave files.

Using proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes, Yamaha precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 series resulting in a more natural feeling with laser accuracy. You also get advanced features from Yamaha's higher end models like cymbal muting, natural cymbal swells, and smoother snare drumrolls so the kits respond to every nuance of your playing.

The hi-hat system of the DTX532K features a dual-zone trigger pad (for edge and bow sounds) that mounts to the included Yamaha hi-hat stand for realistic pedal action and versatile positioning. Moreover, the hi-hat can express various styles of play such as open/close position, closed pedal and foot splash. You can even play tip and edge voices for adding subtle nuances to the beat!

The DTX532K also features professional 3-zone cymbal pads, which can express a different sound in each of the cup, bow and edge zones. These cymbals have a good stick feel and low acoustic noise, which is essential for electronic drums when used for private practice. In addition to a very natural swaying motion, they also have the "choke" function 360-degrees around the edge. You can even mute the cymbal before striking it - a DTX exclusive feature!

New drum training functions are included to challenge you no matter your current skill level every time you practice. Working with these tools will help you improve the most important skills for drumming from rhythmic timing to pad accuracy and endurance. The system will even generate a score so you can track your progress as you improve.

The DTX502 module is perfect for use in a ‘hybrid' kit with your acoustic drum hardware, and can be expanded with four additional pads or triggers. Pad upgrades let you build your dream kit as your skills improve. USB connectivity lets you connect to a PC.

Good Practice Kit


from Santa Monica, CA

This is a good practice kit for my apartment but on it's own is not a serious performance kit by any means, but I'm not disappointed (even though Yamaha has erroneously marketed it as a mid level kit) because the price point was cheap enough for me to get into electronics. It's great having access to all the different kits but there is no comparison to a real live acoustic kit. Especially the cymbals. They are lot less than hoped for although sufficient for my purposes at this point. They may even prove useful for small venues (dinner clubs) where volume is an issue (the jazz kit sounds really good). I also believe they may come in quite handy for recording. However, this kit is a much better tool for practicing if like me you don't have a space where you can practice with live acoustic drums. Muted acoustic drums are boring and uninspiring to practice on and the ability to call up different kits and hear yourself with headphones on while simultaneously playing along with an mp3 is far superior to practicing with my acoustic kit muted. It's a lot more fun, inspiring and informative to actually hear the drums while I'm playing them. The plastic rack is flimsy and moves around so I had to adapt another stand for the snare pad. It works fine now but I'm sure the setup will work much better when I mount all the pads on a couple of double tom stands. I think it will also work well when I integrate some of the pads with my acoustic kit for live performance in a hybrid kit (I need to access percussion sounds for some gigs). And I believe it will make a good springboard for building a much more sophisticated electronic kit by integrating other sound modules and pads. If you have the money, buy the top line models of either Yamaha or Roland. They are far superior. But if like me and $6,000+ is way beyond your price point, these will temporarily suffice to get you started.

Satisfied with First Electronic Set

By Andrew Lynch

from Vestal, NY

I can't compare this set's quality to others, as this is my first electronic set. But playing around with many others in the store and then spending a couple weeks with this set at home, I am very pleased. It is very responsive, and the yamaha sound samples are top notch. Since I've only had the set for a couple weeks, I can't say too much more. But I'll try to update the review when I have put more time on it.
