The DTX400K features 10 legendary drum kits and training functions plus newly developed drum pads, large cymbals and new silent kick unit.
The size of the kit and design of the snare and toms provide a comfortable drumming experience. The new KU100 kick unit offers silent operation for the bass drum. Combine all this with large 10” cymbals and hi-hat and you get a great feeling drum kit that let you to play without disturbing others. The DTX400 trigger module has the highest quality sounds in its class, interactive training functions and built-in practice songs. Load new songs via USB, and upgrade and expand your kit as you develop your skills. The DTX400 is perfect for anyone who wants to get into drumming.
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 the 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 DTX400 is really like having ten professional drum sets in one compact electronic drum kit.
It takes skills to survive in the tribe. 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 rigorous “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.
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 Yamaha 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.
All of these features from a leading drum company are there to help you become a great drummer.
