Yamaha DTX6KX Electronic Drum Kit
The heart of any electronic drum kit is the sound module. The DTX-PRO module features 712 different sounds, with 40-pre set kits ready to play. Using the catalogue of sounds provided, you can create up to 200 user kits, allowing you to instantly re-call for custom set-up. The sounds on the DTX-PRO are recorded in professional studios in high resolution, with careful consideration to the attack and release of each drum and cymbal to achieve a natural and realistic experience.
Acoustic drums are massively influenced by the room that they are in. Using three knobs on the DTX-PRO, you can quickly and easily adjust the ambience, compression and effects added to each pad, creating a whole new ambient sound.
The 'Ambience Modifier' knob changes the environment of the chosen pad. This is achieved by controlling the amount of sampled real-room sound that is added to each drum sound. This alters the reverb, attack and decay of the chosen pad to accurately replicate the ambience sound you choose.
The 'Comp Modifier' adds compression to the entire kit sound. This helps each part of the drum kit to sit nicely within the mix but can create a more aggressive sound when turned up high.
The 'Effect Modifier' controls the audio sends and returns from the two build-in processors. This allows you to choose which pad is sent to which processor, to apply the desired effect.
The DTX6 snare pad is made from Textured Cellular Silicone. A layer of silicone lays underneath the surface of the snare pad which contains a number of small air pockets. This absorbs the blow of the stick and reduces noise, as well as improving the trigger accuracy and stick responses.
The snare, ride and crash pads are equipped with three zones, allowing you to trigger realistic sounds across different areas of the drum or cymbal. The snare drum pad offers authentic sounds when hitting the head, rimshot or sidestick, whereas the cymbals offer bell, bow and edge sounds - as well as choke capability.
If you're looking for a fun and effective way of advancing your drumming techniques, the Yamaha DTX6K-X Electronic Drum Kit is perfect. The DTX6-PRO includes a programmable metronome, versatile recording possibilities, ten exercise programmes, and 35 practice songs from a range of genres. These features allow you to play, learn and practise as much as you please, across a wide range of drumming styles.
It's easy to stereotype training sessions or virtual lessons as boring, but the exercise programmes and practice songs are designed specifically to be fun and challenging, making sure you never get bored. And, with a high-quality headphones amplifier, neither will the rest of the family.
Rec'n'Share is a free app for iOS and Android which allows you to connect your module to a compatible iOS or Android device. Once connected, you can record drum performances as audio tracks or even video. After your recording is complete, Rec'n'Share offers a range of audio and video editing features, and allows you to upload your completed track or clip to social media platforms.
The Yamaha DTX6K-X Electronic Drum Kit is also equipped with MIDI and USB, along with audio outputs. A Steinburg Cubase AI is included on the module, making USB transfer quick and easy to record on your computer.
A reliable rack system is essential for any drummer - no matter where you play. The RS6 rack system is newly designed to provide optimal durability, reliability and stability. The left side of the rack is open, allowing for quick and easy hi-hat stand positioning. This open left side will also accommodate a double kick pedal.
