The DTX562K Electronic Drum Set by Yamaha features all DTX-PADs for snare and toms plus a large hi-hat pad with included stand and large 3-zone cymbal pads for outstanding playability.

The response of the DTX-PADs has been precisely tuned to provide a natural feeling and playability around the entire kit and to integrate comfortably into a hybrid acoustic-electronic kit. The DTX502 module includes 691 drum, percussion and effect sounds for any musical situation and offers comprehensive training functions, practice songs, and easy MIDI recording. The USB port allows plug and play control of VSTi software and lets you import custom wave files.

Using proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes, we 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 DTX562K 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 DTX562K 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 ╦ťhybrid' 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.

Kick pedal sold separately.

The best!

By Mark

from Riverside, CA

Comments about Yamaha DTX562K Electronic Drum Set:

I'm not a drummer. My band wanted to record with all of us (5) in the same small room. First try was a wash of cymbals in the vocal mics and other noise in the drum mics. So I bought a cheap electronic set. That really cleaned up the tracks! Unfortunately watching our drummer play that set was like watching a drummer play with handcuffs on. Thankfully, Guitar Center allowed me to return the cheap set I bought and their drum staff recommended this Yamaha. Both I and my drummer are very impressed! This one feels like a real drum set to play, is very acoustically quiet, and has outstanding sounds in it! Pay a couple of more bucks and get the best! This is it.

Great Electronic Drum Set!


from Woodstock, GA

Comments about Yamaha DTX562K Electronic Drum Set:

Having been a professional drummer for over 25 years, - I was quite skeptical of electronic drums! My trusty 4pc. acoustic set was Ludwig. When I gave up playing some 30 years ago I gave my set to my niece's son! The house I'm now in is really too small to host an acoustic set. --- So, I figured on trying out this Yamaha DTX562K. Joe & Miko (sp?)were extremely helpful & professional! --- For a short while I used to work at Manny's Music Store in NYC. These two guys were really top notch at what they do! I was very impressed when I sat down with this set! --- The sound AND the response were nothing less than amazing! I am using them only as a hobby now & I was quite pleased that my technique was still there after not having touched a stick in about 30 years! You will not be at all disappointed with this electronic drum set!

Comments about Yamaha DTX562K Electronic Drum Set:

It's better the most expensive Roland. Much more realistic. But still no comparison to a real acoustic drum set. Which is why it's only good for practicing not to bother your family members.

      Comments about Yamaha DTX562K Electronic Drum Set:

      I am a beginner drummer, and want something that's going to last me for a long time at all skill levels. This is it. Took several hours to assemble, but fairly straightforward. Instructions fail to describe how to connect your purchased bass drum pedal to the bass drum. The rack is sturdy, and I am very impressed with this product. The real high hat is a gem. I researched extensively and found the DTX pads to be a great feel for me compared to the Roland mesh. The unit has all the drum kits I would ever need, and the ability to adjust tunings and record my own sounds.
