Ten Professional Drum Sets in One Compact Electronic Drum Kit!

The DTX400K comes equipped with 10 professional drum kits made with world-famous sounds from throughout the history of drums including Yamahas legendary acoustic series. By utilizing voices from our professional DTX900/700/500 and DTX-MULTI 12, each kit has extremely high sound quality with "Accent Articulation" for dynamic instruments that change sound characteristics according to your hit strength. But thats not all - you can freely mix any of the 169 organic drum sounds to create customized kits that suit your style - even if your style is always changing. Try a heavy metal double bass kit one day then change into a dance kit the next, or keep your ten favorite kits of all time. You get a world of choices inside: 23 snares, 21 kicks, 36 toms, 31 cymbals, and 42 percussion instruments. Getting a DTX400K is really like having ten professional drum sets in one compact electronic drum kit.

Become a Drum Hero with DTX400K!

It takes skills to survive in the tribe. The training functions of the DTX400K have been expanded for drummers and enthusiasts of all levels. There are 10 onboard routines including warm ups, groove tools, and drumming games designed with Yamahas experience in Music Education to make practice fun and effective. Even if you never played drums before, the intuitive Groove Tracker will help you pick up the beat. All drummers can improve their groove with Rhythm Gate, or take on the rigorous Fast Blast challenge if you think you have the chops. There is even a "Voice Guidance" system that speaks the results of your sessions to encourage you on your rhythmic journey.

Playability and Feel from a Drum Company

Yamaha has been making drums for over 45 years, so we know that playability is important to all drummers. Using experience gained from developing the popular DTX-PAD we have redesigned the drum pads of the DTX400 series to provide a natural response, solid durability and excellent stick feel. The new pads use a rubber surface so your sticks will not slide around on the head, and you can practice single, double and triple stroke techniques for use on a set of acoustic drums. And as an entry-level kit, the dimensions of the DTX400K give you a nice, comfortable area in which to play so you can really rock out. The new KU100 Kick unit has superior silent characteristics without sacrificing playability. All of these features from a leading drum company are there to help you become a great drummer.

Upgrade and Expand Your Kit!

As you carve your path into the drummer tribe you can feel confident that your DTX kit can be upgraded and expanded to match your ambition. Upgrade to a 3-zone snare pad that allows you to play open and closed rim-shots with the TP70S or a 3-zone XP80 DTX-PAD*1. You can also add an extra cymbal with the PCY90AT that includes everything you need to play with dual crash cymbals.

Add a real bass drum pedal and KP65 kick pad for true kick drum play, and upgrade to the HH65 hi-hat controller for playing half-open hi-hat voices.

With the USB-MIDI jack you can connect the DTX400 to your computer to control VSTi drum sounds and enjoy recording into DAW software such as Cubase*2. You can also import new songs and beats to use in the training functions with the Musicsoft Downloader*3.

Many possibilities await you in the world of DTX.

I loved the price for this kit. The quality is good, but some of the connections never do tighten up enough. The snare drops down as its hit repeatedly, bringing the hi-hat along with it, and has to be adjusted. Even the wing-nut style connector doesn't help. The sensitivity is off, and the low tom sometimes makes noise even if not hit. The pads are small, and its hard to mimic the setup of a real kit. Attaching an ipad type device is proving to be more difficult than I had envisioned, as the onboard connection is for a computer (using a printer style usb cable!)... I have yet to figure it out. Overall, I am happy with my purchase, but dont think it will last too long if my family decides to take drumming seriously.

This drum kit performs well, aside from the snare/highhat being a little loose, even with tightening. They move position. The best quality for price. I have had a lot of fun on these and you will too! Beginner or semi advanced. I myself am a beginning drummer but really enjoy this kit.

I rented this kit for recording for my band and it really worked out perfectly. Itwas easy to set up, fun to play around with, and a load of fun to record with. I thought it wasn't going to be good because I'm a bit of a hard hitter, but, wow. Considering they're rubber heads instead of mesh, it's a really good kit.

I bought this set as I began drum lessons four months ago, so I can't claim to be an expewrt. However, so far it seems an excellent beginner's set. I have a small apartment, and it fits easily into a corner. The sound is good over headphones, and even better over a small amp (although I can't play that way much). You can set it up in about 15 min., with a little practice, so it's easy to move. The supports are strong, although you have to make sure all clamps are pretty tight, or they'll loosen during energetic playing. The pedals for bass and hi-hat don't have great feel, but there is an upgrade to a "real" bass-drum beater if you want to spend the extra $$. It's a little cramped to play (the tom pads are really close together) compared to a real drum kit, but everything works well. The ten "practice songs" built into the module are fun, as are the other practice/training features, and it's easy to plug in an MP3 player to play along with your own pre-recorded music. Build quality is high, as with most Yamaha products, and it seems to me a good kit for around $400 retail. Up to now, it's been completely reliable.
