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. The Yamaha DTX522K electronic drum kit also features 3-zone operation for the ride, crash and hi-hat. The drums and percussion voices in the 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.

Powerful DTX502 Drum Trigger Module

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

Advanced Technology Under The Hood

Using proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes, they precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 series resulting in a more natural feeling with laser accuracy. You also get advanced features from the 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

read more The DTX522K also features the 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

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.

Design Offers Versatile Trigger and Upgrade Options

"AWESOME KIT!!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've been researching this kit for a while but didn't get it and settled for another ekit which will remain nameless. I purchases this kit and I'm supremely impressed. I've only had the kit for a week but I'm glad I made the purchase. The picture is misleading of the kit. The kit is a nice size and the module is off the hook. I've only explored the module briefly but the little I did explore is sweet!! You can play different drum kit sounds such as a beech, birch' rock, funk etc. Can't wait to see what it can do. Worth it! Out of the box, you don't have to program the bell or choke sound of the cymbal or the cross sticking of the snare. Already programmed for you.
Musical Background:
Been playing the drums for 4 years. I jam at home
Musical Style:
Rock, Country, Gospel, Funk and Pop.
