    OVERVIEW

    Yamaha's next advancement in the DTX series!

    The DTX562K Electronic Drum Set by Yamaha features all DTX-PADs for snare and toms plus a large hi-hat pad with included stand and large 3-zone cymbal pads for outstanding playability.

    The response of the DTX-PADs has been precisely tuned to provide a natural feeling and playability around the entire kit and to integrate comfortably into a hybrid acoustic-electronic kit. The DTX502 module includes 691 drum, percussion and effect sounds for any musical situation and offers comprehensive training functions, practice songs, and easy MIDI recording. The USB port allows plug and play control of VSTi software and lets you import custom wave files.

    Using proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes, we precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 series resulting in a more natural feeling with laser accuracy. You also get advanced features from Yamaha's higher end models like cymbal muting, natural cymbal swells, and smoother snare drumrolls so the kits respond to every nuance of your playing.

    The hi-hat system of the DTX562K features a dual-zone trigger pad (for edge and bow sounds) that mounts to the included Yamaha hi-hat stand for realistic pedal action and versatile positioning. Moreover, the hi-hat can express various styles of play such as open/close position, closed pedal and foot splash. You can even play tip and edge voices for adding subtle nuances to the beat!

    The DTX562K also features 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.

    Kick pedal sold separately.

    Comments about Yamaha DTX562K Electronic Drum Set:

    Remarkably well packaged. A terrific practice tool, this kit is extremely versatile. Using the kit is simple and intuitive; sound quality is excellent. Some of the preset kits trigger weird and useless sounds; they should be replaced with kits modeling more drums constructed from other woods, drums of different diameters, or other realistic variables seen in acoustic kits. Relatively compact footprint.

    Comments about Yamaha DTX562K Electronic Drum Set:

    Having played an acoustic set all my life, I did not expect much from this kit. Wow, was I surprised. Even the cymbals have a nice feel and sound. The versatility of this kit is amazing. I wish I could add more than one additional cymbal, since my acoustic kit has 7 cymbals. I may never go back to my full acoustic set with all the heavy hardware. Nice job, Yamaha!

    Great Drum set for Small Venues

      Comments about Yamaha DTX562K Electronic Drum Set:

      I use this with the church praise team without a dedicated drum amplifier, it's run through a Imp2 Direct box to the mixer board. Allows the mixer to add in drums as necessary so the music doesn't have to be super loud and the drummer doesn't have to be in a Dunk Tank, makes a much better sounding mix.

      It's a project to initially assemble it took me a little over 2 hours. I didn't put that in as a con because there are just a lot of parts it's not a propblem with the instructions or anything like that it's just time consuming.

      It plays great! I thought it looked to small but it's quite comfortable to play. The versatility of the electronic module is great, being able to change the type of kit etc. The electronics are pretty straight forward to operate.

      Going from a acoustic set to digital was an easy transition. I find the pads extremely responsive but the cymbals could use more umph. Overall, I'm very pleased with the set
