Yamaha DTX6K2X Electronic Drum Kit
Versatile, accurate, and realistic. The Yamaha DTX6 series features a set of electronic drum pads that represent the very best of modern e-drum technology. The XP80 snare pad's main playing surface is constructed from TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone), filled with micro-pockets of air which absorb your sticks' energy for an accurate and satisfying hit. The rim has two separate zones, allowing you to switch from chunky rimshots to delicate cross-sticks in an instant.
Likewise, the KP90 kick drum pad has a multi-layered cushion, providing a precise response at all velocity levels. And with a 7.5" diameter, and robust positioning spikes, the KP90 can handle heavy, double-pedal strokes with ease. The PCY135 cymbal pads contain three distinct playing zones, and are also choke-able, for limitless expression, while the two-zone RHH135 hi-hat pad comes with a traditional, metal hi-hat stand for a true drum kit feel.
Hundreds of authentic drum samples at your fingertips. The DTX6's new and improved DTX-PRO sound module is smarter than your average drum brain. It comes loaded with more than 700 multi-layered samples - exclusively recorded at some of Europe's top studios by Yamaha-approved artists - with room for you to upload hundreds more of your own. Working with the DTX6's multi-zone pads, these painstakingly collated recordings provide every conceivable articulation, so you can play without compromise.
The DTX-PRO's powerful effects engine allows near-endless manipulation of your chosen sample kit. Personalise your drum sound with channel-by-channel effects sends, three-band sweepable EQ, compression, and Yamaha's in-depth Transient Adjustment system, allowing incredibly precise modification of each channel's attack and sustain times. The face-mounted Kit Modifier knobs add still more sonic options, providing hands-on control of your kit's real-room ambience, whole-kit compression, and send levels to 31 classic Yamaha effects.
Everything in the right place. The DTX6K2-X is designed around an L-shaped RS6 rack system, which places you right at the heart of the action. Bolstered by three sturdy T-legs, the RS6 leaves plenty of space on the hi-hat side, even when using a double kick drum pedal, and the side rack places the sound module neatly out of the way of flailing drumsticks, remaining within easy reach. The included HS650A hi-hat stand is sturdy and durable, with a smooth action, and improves the real-feel dynamic of the DTX6K2-X, while the snare pad is suspended on a ball-mount clamp arm for maximum angle accuracy.
Practice makes perfect. The Yamaha DTX6 system is designed to support you throughout your drumming adventure. From simple features like an easy-to-use metronome, to the more in-depth onboard training programmes, you've got everything you need to improve your skills as you go.
The ten engaging exercise programmes help you boost your technical and time-keeping skills, while 35 included play-along songs mean you can test out your new-found techniques across a wide range of genres and drumming styles. And you can have your fun without disturbing the rest of your household, thanks to the high-quality, low-distortion headphone amplifier.
Get connected. One huge advantage of the DTX6 system is its enormous range of connectivity options. Integration with your mac or PC via simple USB - or 5-pin MIDI - means you can easily record your playing with the bundled Cubase AI software. Or cut out the middleman and record yourself playing along to your favourite tracks, directly to a USB flash drive, with the DTX-PRO's onboard recording system.
