The pads and modules of the DTX500K are mounted on to a sturdy rack which can be folded away for easy storage. The set is completed with a Yamaha bass drum pedal and the included hi-hat, crash and ride cymbals. Built-in practice tools help you improve your playing and you can play along to your favourite CDs or MP3 using the simple auxiliary input.
Legendary Yamaha Sound Quality for All Your Drum Kits!
The DTX500 drum trigger module features Yamaha's high-quality tone generator with realistic acoustic drum, cymbal and percussion sounds. You get the sounds of hi-end oak, maple, beech and birch drums, with details like velocity-switching samples, changing the characteristics the harder you play, so you will feel like you are listening to a 'live' set of drums. The 50 preset kits are ready for you to perform a wide range of music styles, and you can select your favourite sounds to create custom user kits, add digital reverb effects and master the EQ to sweeten the sound. With 427 naturally sampled acoustic drum and percussion voices, the DTX500 module will bring out your best playing by providing highly realistic and powerful drum sounds.
Play Along With Musical Practice Songs!
The songs of the DTX500K let you play along in different styles with or without the recorded drum track or with the full ensemble to make playing fun and practising seem more like a band rehearsal.
Practical Tools that Improve your Groove!
Yamaha's popular groove tools have set the standard for educational functions that are not only easy and fun to use, but actually help you become a better drummer. The DTX500K has a collection of training functions including the popular Groove Check that displays whether you are playing early or late, so you can more easily correct undesirable habits. Rhythm Gate is like a drumming game that automatically mutes the sound if your playing is too far out of time, so you quickly learn to control your groove and play 'in the pocket'. Practice has never been this much fun!
3-Zone Cymbals with 'Choke' Feature Deliver Realistic Expression!
The cymbals of the DTX500K feature advanced 3-zone cymbal pads which can express a different sound in each of the cup, bow and edge zones.
Expressive Hi-Hat System for Advanced Performance!
The DTX500K features a hi-hat system that uses a remote hi-hat pedal controller and trigger pad to provide realistic hi-hat expression. The pedal and pad can be located anywhere around the kit and 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!
Play Along With Your Favourite Tunes!
The DTX500K includes an audio input for connecting an external music player to the module so you can play along with your favourite music, either though the main output or in your headphones, so you can quickly master the piece you want to learn note for note. The DTX500K is also equipped with a high-performance, programmable metronome made for drummers that allows complicated rhythms and tones to be set.
Impressive Expandability and Upgrades - Add up to Four Pads!
The DTX500K gives you peace of mind, too. Even after purchasing the kit, you can expand by adding up to four pads if you want more toms, cymbals or a double-bass configuration. All kinds of upgrades including support for the DTX-PADs are possible.
MIDI Connection Offers More Possibilities!
The DTX500 trigger module is equipped with a MIDI output port for connecting the kit to additional devices or a computer (requires MIDI interface) for music production applications.
