Ground Breaking Entry Level Digital Drum Kit – the Yamaha DTX400K
Yamaha have just announced the launch of their breakthrough, entry level, electronic drum kit - the DTX400K.

The first time this kind of Yamaha quality has been made available at such an affordable price point, the DTX400K is an electronic drum kit where every single aspect has been designed with newer players in mind.

The exciting new concept combines the power and capabilities of the established Yamaha DTX series with a compact, user-friendly design packed full of training and skill building features.

Designed to build professional and transferrable percussion skills the Yamaha DTX400K’s lesson functions include “Groove Check”, “Rhythm Gate” and “Fast Blast”, all designed to develop aspiring drummers’ speed, strength and timing.

Whilst perfect for beginners, the DTX400K’s USB connectivity options allow it to be used to control VSTi drum libraries and computer software meaning it is also a valuable tool for established musicians recording in home studios.

Add to this some of the highest quality sounds in its class, including legendary drum tones from some of Yamaha’s most acclaimed acoustic drum kits, a small compact frame, responsive Yamaha drum pads and a new KU100 silent kick unit and it’s not hard to see why the Yamaha DTX400K is causing such a stir.
