Comments about Yamaha DTX560K Electronic Drum Set:
You know that great feeling you get when playing a new set? This drum set feels awesome all the time. You can change sounds on each cymbal or drum pad. If you want to make the set sound great you can. If you just want to screw around with fun sounds, you can! Hitting the drum textured cellular silicone pads is weirdly satisfying and the tones you get are strong. The module is surprisingly easy to use which is good. The rack system is sturdy which is nice. I have had this set for less than a week and I love it. I had no problem going from my regular acoustic set with 5 toms, 2 bass's and 8 cymbals to this. That being said, I would like to respectfully disagree that it is poorly made. You see the picture at the top and thats a pretty universal and basic set up. You would have to have a pretty exotic set up to not be capable of playing this set. I can understand why the drum mounts with the ball in them would be desired but are not necessary. If you do play some with some weird angles or whatever then I guess it is on you to buck up and pay a little more for a model with the different mounts. It is also easy to set up. Very easy. Like I said just look at the picture. I did it without any experience with electric sets or looking at any instructions. Also remember it takes a few sessions of playing to get used to the new set up but you absolutely do get used to it. I have high standards and still love this set. I really didn't care about the fact that it has tracks you can play along to on the module but once I got it, it turned out being surprisingly fun! I end up always jamming along with those. I play all styles of music. Some include quick double bass or just some fills and in that aspect it does not catch all of my bass hits. I think I will just order another bass pad and have individual pedals but thats no biggie because the price is not bad and the set up would be really easy. I like that there is a little nob on the bass drum to adjust the volume of the bass. Along with that I like that you can adjust the volumes of each individual cymbal and drum pad to get the exact mastered sound you want. I also love playing along to music through the aux input. The clean sound of the electric drums along with music through isolation headphones is just hard to beat! You can really work on the clarity of what you play and fix sloppiness by hearing exactly what you play when you play it. I have so much to say about this drum set. Our homies at Yamaha can do no wrong. They created an awesome electric kit that I would take over a roland for a way better price. The drum set is awesome for the price. Scratch that, the drum set is awesome period. Id pick it up even if it were a few hundred smackeroonies more expensive. If you are on the fence about getting it or not, I say go for it. You will probably enjoy it like I do and have your own favorite details about it. If not, no worries, there are so many options out there you can always get what you want.
Comments about Yamaha DTX560K Electronic Drum Set:
Got this kit and was very excited about getting started. I finally set the kit up, and noticed that it was very difficult setting up the set. I could not get the toms were i wanted, and i could not play the drums probertly. It is also alsmost impossible to adjust some of the heighst on the rack. i immediately refunded the kit.
Guys if you care much about that you can set up your electronic drumset the way you want, this is not the choice for you! If buying a yamaha kit i would reccomend getting atleast the dtx700, becuase it features the tom adjusters
(Whit the ball adjustment) I would go for a roland td15k instead of this :) it is really worth the little extra money. Im saving for it right now :D
Thanks for reading my first review ever! Even though i criticized the kit :D
