Yamaha's next advancement in the DTX series!
The DTX522K Electronic Drum Set by Yamaha features the DTX-PAD snare with newly developed tom pads, exclusive 3-zone hi-hat and cymbal pads, plus the incredible sounds and features of the DTX502 module in an affordable kit configuration.
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. This model also features 3-zone operation for the ride, crash and hi-hat. The drums and percussion voices in the new 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.
Using proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes, Yamaha precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 series resulting in a more natural feeling with laser accuracy. You also get advanced features from 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.
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!
New 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.
The DTX502 module is perfect for use in a ‘hybrid’ kit with your acoustic drum hardware, and can be expanded with four additional pads or triggers. Pad upgrades let you build your dream kit as your skills improve. USB connectivity lets you connect to a PC.

Comments about Yamaha DTX522K Electronic Drum Set:
I bought this kit over a Roland mainly because on paper, you got more bang for your buck. It came to a little over $1200 CAD.
I was searching and searching like crazy to find reviews for this kit online, but rest assured that you're getting an incredibly sounding, solid built drum kit. The preset kits sound amazing after a little tweaking and most of the play along songs are fun to jam to. I love the built in recording button.
The ONLY thing I've found to be a little frustrating is that sometimes the cymbals have issues determining whether you are playing the bow or bell of the cymbal, and muting is not always 100% accurate.
As I said, if you want to get an insane amount of features and you're a novice to experienced musician, look no further than any of the kits from the Yamaha DTX500K series.
I do not regret this purchase one bit.
