The New Entry-Level Yamaha DTX400K Electonic Drum Kit
Welcome to the Tribe
The Yamaha DTX400 Electronic Drum Kit is BRAND NEW for August 2012. It's compact yet comfortable, it's cheap but well built and it's probably the best entry-level drum kit available right now. With the new DTC400 what you see is what you get!
So let's see what it's made of...
Firstly, let us just acknowledge the fact that Yamaha have been manufacturing drums of exceptional quality and value for 45 years, and their electronic drum kits are some of the best on the market. Falling straight into the beginners category due to its incredibly affordable price point, the Yamaha DTX400K is perfect for anyone interested in taking up the drums, or for those of you who are still in the early stages of learning to play.
The DTX400K provides an authentic drumming experience that even entry-level players can recognise. The size and design of this kit make it extremely comfortable to play, and the new KU100 kick unit offers silent operation for the bass drum. Large 10” cymbals, 7.5” drum pads, the DTX400 trigger module and rugged steel rack will provide any entry level drummer with the tools you need to develop your skills.
Some Key Features:
- Basic Remote Hi-Hat Controller
- NEW DTX400 Drum Trigger Module with 169 high-quality sounds
- 10 Preset kits (all of which can be overwritten)
- 10 interactive Training Functions with Voice Guidance
- 10 play-along songs (new songs can be downloaded via USB)
- Expandable - add an additional crash cymbal pad
- Upgradeable - 3-zone snare, real bass-drum pedal action, advanced hi-hat controller
By using sounds from Yamaha's professional DTX900/700/500 models, the 400 series drum sounds are superior to anything else in its class. The kit sounds of the DTX400 are presented in stereo from the position of the player, so that you when you hear it you will feel like you are listening to a real set of drums. In fact, the sounds are actual recordings of real drums, cymbals and percussion that respond to your hitting strength for expressive musical performances. You get the biggest names from throughout the history of drums including Yamaha’s most famous acoustic drums.

Interestingly the Yamaha DTX400K uses voices from its big brother and sisters in the professional range of DTX kits - 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 velocity. But that’s not…
