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 Yamaha's legendary acoustic series. By utilising voices from their 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 that's not all - you can freely mix any of the 169 organic drum sounds to create customised 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 favourite 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!
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 Yamaha's 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 rigourous '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 they know that playability is important to all drummers. Using experience gained from developing the popular DTX-PAD they 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.
Upgrade and Expand Your Kit!
As you carve your path into the drummer tribe you can feel confident that your DTX400K 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.
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 most popular recording packages or drum software apps. You can also import new songs and beats to use in the training functions with the Musicsoft Downloader 3 (Available as a download).
