Yamaha DTX530K & DTX560K Electronic Drum Kits: New for NAMM 2012

Published: Tue January 17, 2012  News Feed

New Yamaha DTX Electronic Drum Kits

The latest additions to the Yamaha DTX500 series have been announced for NAMM 2012. Both the Yamaha DTX530K and DTX560K feature the incredible DTX-PADs, and the only obvious difference between these two beauties is that the 560K comes with DTX-PAD toms as well as the snare.

Express Yourself...

These two newbies to the range manage to provide a “feel” exceptionally close to that of an acoustic drum kit. These kits go beyond realism, integrating seamlessly into a hybrid electronic-acoustic set.

 

 

The DTX-PAD is a result of the collaboration of knowledge, experience and thirst for perfection, from Yamaha themselves and some of the world’s top drummers, who had some input in the design process.

Yamaha hold years of experience in designing some of the best quality (and value for money) instruments the industry has seen and the new DTX-PAD does just that. Designed to set a new benchmark for electronic drum kit standards, the DTX-PAD provides users with a great feeling surface, offering comfort and playability that is surprisingly close to that of an acoustic kit, whilst being deafeningly quiet.

Choke it!

The DTX cymbals are not like many other cymbals on the market. The 3-zone crash and ride, with the “choke” feature 360° around the edge allow for realistic expression in each section of the cymbals, the cup, bow or on the edge.

The DTX hi-hat features the essentially realistic pedal action, as well as translating your varying playing techniques, like closed/open hat. As this hat consists of a dual-trigger pad, just like the crash and ride, you can attack different sections of the cymbal and capture a life-like, animated sound.

The Brains

The new DTX kits feature the updated DTX500 module, containing improved kits and voices, which is also compatible with the XP series DTX-PADs.  This new module features 50 preset kits in a wide range of styles, 427 drum and percussion sounds, 22 melodies and a number of effects including multiple reverb and EQ settings. You also have the option to find the samples that suit you and create up to 20 ‘user kit’ arrangements; you have a fully customisable platform.

The module’s featured samples include sound elements that many other electronic kits do not. Simulating the highest quality oak, maple, beech and birch drum enclosures; Yamaha haven’t cut any corners with the DTX. Other special features include velocity-switching samples that change sound characteristic is you play harder, replicating a live set and accentuating every nuance you express.

The DTX530K and 560K offer more than an acoustic kit ever could, with the new sound module, you can play along to the wide selection of great tracks, and with this function you have the option to mute the accompanying drum track, or solo the bass etc.  Whatever your style or preferred practice and performance techniques, the DTX gives you the most realistic and beneficial playing experience.

Friendly Connectivity

The DTX500 module is so kind, it allows the user to connect it to an external music player so you can play along to your favourite tracks, the songs you are learning or even your own compositions.

 

 

With a MIDI connection round back, you can just as easily get recording, layering up and editing your performances.*

*MIDI recording requires a MIDI connection to your computer.
