Utilizing the DTX-PAD snare for superior stick feel, you can play the head, open rimshot, and closed rimshot voices in each of the three zones for authentic snare expression. This model also features 3-zone operation for the ride, crash and hi-hat. The drums and percussion voices in the new DTX502 module lets you sound your absolute best, and with the advanced practice tools and easy song recorder you will be getting better all the time. The USB port allows control over VSTi software and lets you import custom wave files.

NEW! Powerful DTX502 Drum Trigger Module
The DTX502 has almost twice the wave ROM and over 250 more sounds than its predecessor and features new drum and cymbal samples from top VST developers that have been optimized for DTX. Also voices inherited from our other DTX modules have been updated for improved playability and sound.

Advanced Technology Under The Hood
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 our higher end models like cymbal muting, natural cymbal swells, and smoother snare drumrolls so the kits respond to every nuance of your playing, and 3-Zone hi-hat technology when using the PCY100 as a hi-hat pad.


3-Zone Cymbals with Choke Feature Deliver Realistic Expression!
The DTX522K also features our 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!

Updated Practice Functions With Scoring
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.

New Design Offers Versatile Trigger and Upgrade Options
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.

The first thing I noticed is the sounds of the drums are very realistic. The snare is amazing and I find the crash and hi-hat are very responsive and feel genuine. I cannibalized my previous Dtx kit to add an extra crash and added a double kick. The main cymbal issue I have with the ride is the 3 zone feature is a bit off and does not always correspond with what I expect with and acoustic kit. Admittedly I just got the kit so I assume it will take some getting used to. It would be useful if the module had a clear setting for the ride versus the crash cymbals as well. Another issue was that I prefer to have my hi-hat closed and there is not a clear option for that in this module. You have to take the extra step of lowering the clutch value in the module which took a Google search to determine. The kit?s pads is very sensitive which is great. The kit has an incredible selection of sounds for each piece. The pads are firm and give great snap back. The same applies to the kick pad. I agree with the review that indicates the independent hi-hat is not necessary. The rack itself is a bit flimsy and I could see that the rack would seem a bit small to many people. I did find I had to crowd my toms and cymbals but, as I mentioned previously, I added an extra crash so I had to crowd my toms in order to fit and extra clasp for the additional crash. The pre-set kits are amazing and the user kits allow you to set a kit that fits your desired sound. The kit was a great value for me as I already had a double kit pedal and extra cymbal but I was a bit surprised that a kick pedal was not included. Finally I have notice a lot of sound contamination when trying to set my toms in the user settings. When trying to calibrate the toms I hear the cymbals?even when tapping lightly. Overall it is a great kit for the price. I would definitely recommend this kit to others.

The "teacher" that commented, has a few things wrong. Not sure if you are thinking of the 500 series. Cymbals choke on DTX502, and the rim on snare... you don't have to play like a real snare, you just hit the rim on right side(different zones). Some else mentioned the sounds were not natural sounding? They are the best I've heard... as good an any if you pick the right kit. The Yamaha kits are very accurate. My only complaints are.. the hardness of pads and kick pad... making it VERY loud for practicing in a house. The brain will sometimes lose all settings if not powered down properly... so if you trip over the power cord, all could be lost. Stand is a bit cheap/small, but light for moving. TRY IT and compare to other brands at same price... NO CONTEST ... BTW, upgrading to the 502 with HH stand is IMO a waste of money

Had it for 2 years now. Love the sounds. Easy to play. Hi hat isn't the best but i purchased the upgrade with the separate stand and it seems better.

The actual pads themselves are very nice feeling, it's just the sounds that are just terrible. They just sound fake. It sounds like a drum machine rather than a person playing a drum kit. Get a Roland.

I teach using this kit. For the price this is a really nice electronic kit but I have tried the td11 which is comparable in price and think it is better. The Good: The "real" drum sounds are very good and the dynamic response from soft rolls and ghost notes to rimshots is pretty realistic. Cymbal chokes are reliable and the pads are all holding up well under tough conditions. You have alot of options to customize the various sounds and create your own kit. The Bad: The rack is flimsy and short. I have some tall students (6ft +) and I cannot get the snare to an ideal height for proper technique. Small kids like to lean and push on things often causing the kit to collapse! It is tough to get the drums just where I want them. Lots of features is great but when combined with a tiny screen and only a handful of buttons these features are frustrating to find and use - not very intuitive. The snare pad is very loud compared to mesh pads (but the response is more realistic). The hi hat is meh... my acoustic technique does not translate well to it as I seem to have to lift my foot well ahead of an open hi hat sound and the foot splash feature is quite finicky. My last beef is one that most e kits have and that is the size of the pads and cymbals. It is hard to play a rimshot on an 8 inch snare without hitting the rim opposite and the bell of the ride is as small a target as the bell on my 12 inch splash cymbal! We dont make electric guitars the size of ukeleles or electric pianos the size of a kindergarten bell set so why are so many e drums seemingly made for tiny people....AARRRGH! Bottom line is that this is fantastic for practice and teaching unless you are large. The sounds and response are good enough for gigging but I would not bring it along on gigs without upgrading the stand. The td11 is quieter more sturdy and the overall response and realism seems better to me. But when I looked at them the base model did not come with chokeable cymbals and there is no pre-choke feature for the cymbals (choke it before you hit it).

The Yamaha DTX 522K offers an impressive amount of sounds and pre-set kits to choose from that all sound great and feel good to play. There's 50 different kit configurations, probably 20 of which are actually worth trying because the rest are dubstep and electronic sounds. There's also several user kits, which allow you to mix and match - for example, I could map the sound of a cowbell to the bell on the ride cymbal, or use an Oak Custom snare and Maple Custom toms. The 502 module (the "brain" of the kit) has a large number of built-in tracks that you can play along to and mute the drum part on as well. Overall, the DTX 522K is a great drum kit made of high quality materials and is fun to play either by yourself or with a band - as long as you have the proper speakers or amp to do so. PS. You also have to supply your own kick pedal, drum throne and drum sticks, which you can get for a total of $230 or so.
