Sweetwater's Exclusive 6-piece DTX542
Start playing the Yamaha DTX542K electronic drum kit, and you'll immediately notice how well it responds to the nuances of your playing. Yamaha laser-analyzed real drum strokes to fine-tune the DTX542K's triggers. Cymbal muting, cymbal swells, and snare rolls sound smoother and more natural than ever. And the DTX502 drum module gives you 50 kits to play with, plus cool practice features to sharpen your skills. Whether for performance, recording, or home practice, Sweetwater is sure you'll be impressed with all that our exclusive 6-piece Yamaha DTX542K electronic drum kit has to offer.
Feature-packed DTX502 drum module
A wide range of realistic drum sounds await in the DTX502 drum module included in the Yamaha DTX542K drum kit. You get almost twice the memory and 250 more sounds than the previous DTX500 module. Yamaha worked with top VST developers to pack a lot of great-sounding samples into the DTX502 module, optimized for the natural response of the DTX542K kit.
Expressive 3-zone cymbal and snare pads
The DTX542K drum kit includes 3-zone cymbal and snare pads, which makes your performances sound far more realistic than even dual-zone pads. Even better, you can choke the cymbals by grabbing them anywhere on the edge of the pad. In fact, you can even mute a cymbal before striking it, for an extra level of realism you don't get with many electronic drum kits.
Helpful practice features
Whether you're a beginner or an advanced player, the DTX542K electronic drum kit has smart practice features to hone your skills. At Sweetwater, we think one of the coolest features is the scoring function. As you're practicing rhythmic timing, pad accuracy, and endurance, the DTX502 drum module can generate a score that you can use to track your progress. Practice makes perfect, and the DTX542K drum kit makes it fun.
