DTX502 drum module brings you a great-sounding set of updated drum sounds

A wide range of realistic drum sounds await in the DTX502 drum module included in the Yamaha DTX562K 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 DTX562K kit.

3-zone cymbal and snare pads give you more expressive options

The DTX562K drum kit sports 3-zone cymbal and snare pads, which makes your performances sound far more realistic than single-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, an extra level of realism you don't get with many electronic drum kits.

Make practice more fun with the practice scoring feature

Whether you're a beginner or advanced player, the DTX562K electronic drum kit has smart practice features that are sure to hone your skills further. 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 DTX562K drum kit makes it fun.

Yamaha DTX562K 5-piece Electronic Drum Kit Features:
  • Electronic drum kit with 3 x toms, 1 x snare, 2 x cymbals, 1 x hi-hat, drum module, hi-hat stand, and rack system
  • DTX502 drum module gives you 50 preset kits and 50 user kits for you to create your own
  • Trigger response has been fine-tuned with laser analysis for amazingly realistic response

Great kit!

While this drum kit is not the top of the line, the features that it offers compared to an introductory set are numerous. The 3 zone cymbals are a great addition and sound very realistic. The snare produces quality sound and allows user to do rim shots. We use this kit in for worship at our church...and while it is not the same as playing an actual acoustic kit, it is the answer for our small worship auditorium.

This kit is wonderfull

This set is perfect but I got carried away and exchanged chrome Gibraltar 30" curved tubes on all horizontal tubes so I could move all three toms in front of me making room for two more toms on the right side. All of the existing clamps work fine on curved tubes. This worked out great and gave me room to add a holder for an Ipad above the toms for learning. I added two Alesis 8" toms to the set and use them for percussion sounds. There is provisions for four extra trigger inputs on the module so this wired up just fine. The DTX pads leave the Alesis pads in the dust but work great for what I am using them for. The DTX are so much quieter. I added a Pearl double kick pedal as the kit does not come with anything and am very happy with that choice as well. The sounds this unit produces are great. I have it running through a very large system and It sounds great at any volume. Save the money on buying a bigger set and just customize this to your liking. You will be glad you did.

Yamaha, beautiful sound

I am an amateur player and have always played acoustic drums. I decided to purchase an electronic drum set and began reviewing and analyzing all the different products. Easily and without question, Yamaha rose to the surface. The DTX562K was my choice, especially for the price. I certainly was not going to buy a top end professional set because I am a beginner, and I certainly did not want to spend money on a set that I knew I would outgrow. This set of drums plays beautifully. The 3 zoned cymbals add more flexibility than lower end sets. The toms and snare also have more available zones. I was a little skeptical about what an "electronic" hi-hat would sound like compared to a "real" hi-hat. A few minutes playing the Yamaha hi-hat and I was stunned. It's fantastic. The kick drum actually is better than my acoustic. The brains of this drum set is the 502 series. You can read all the specifics about its qualities, so I don't need to go into great detail. But the most important info that the drummer needs to know is that it is easy to use. I can scroll through the 50 pre-sets and play along with all music styles. With just a click of a few buttons I can change the tones and/or pitch of any individual drum in any individual set. That's pretty handy. The module also has many training excercises that help with timing. Simply put, this drum set is extremely cool and has an excellent sound. It is important to know that the manner in which you amplify the set is crucial. Mine runs through a Yamaha EMX512 with Club V speakers and it can handle all the frequencies produced by drums. When you purchase this set you will have a drum set that will handle all your needs, but the best electronic set will sound horrible without proper amplification. I would recommend this set to anybody, but you MUST remember that if you purchase this set, or any set for that matter, and do not have a good amplifier designed for these types of instruments, you will be disappointed. Do not blame the DTX562 for bad sound, blame the guitar amp you're trying to run it through.

Great Set!

Bought this kit for playing at church. After 4 Rolands, I am loving this Yamaha. Imo they have caught and surpassed Roland easily. The heads are great, the samples and layers are wonderful. And the ability to use the app on my iPad to control everything is awesome...even though the app is a tad rough around the edges. Overall, I'm very pleased I purchased this Yamaha from Mark and the guys at Sweetwater.

My first electronic kit

This seems to be a very nice kit. It's built well. It has tons of choices for songs and kits. I bought this kit mainly for " quiet" practice and it's great for that. I may end up playing out with this kit and a 1300 watt monitor. It's extremely easy to move, especially compared to my acoustic kit.
