Yamaha‘s new DTX402 series electronic drum kits – the DTX402K and DTX452K – provide beginning drummers with an entry-level kit that will help improve drumming skills and techniques, while introducing intuitive, app-driven challenges and rewards to encourage them to keep playing. Improving upon the successful DTX400 series, these new models feature a sturdier design and quieter, more natural-feeling drum and cymbal pads. For increased stability, the redesigned rack provides a solid foundation and more flexibility for the placement of the hi-hat and snare pads.

Both models come with the DTX402 module, which comes with 287 high-quality, expressive drum and percussion sounds, 128 keyboard sounds, 10 customizable drum kits and nine reverb types. Different music genre selections, such as pop, rock and jazz, as well as the training and learning functions, are clearly labeled on the module for easy navigation. The module also includes 10 unique built-in training exercises, along with a record function, that improve techniques for drummers of any skill level.

The DTX452K features the KP65 kick drum tower and comes with a bass drum pedal. Additionally, the DTX452K includes the HH65, a more expressive hi-hat pad, as well as a three-zone snare pad for head, rim-shot and cross-stick sounds.
