For Quiet Practice that Improves Technique!


The DTX500K features traditional electronic rubber practice pads that have a nice stick rebound without being too bouncy. The module is compatible with the DTX-PADs so upgrading the kit is very easy.

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 (that changes sound characteristic as you play harder) 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 favorite sounds to create custom user kits, and add digital reverb effects and master 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, solo the bass player, or with the full ensemble to make playing fun and practicing 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 you 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!





Expressive Hi-Hat System for Advanced Performance!


The DTX500K features a hi-hat system that uses a remote hi-hat pedal controller (included with the kit) and trigger pad to provide realistic hi-hat expression. The pedal and pad can be located anywhere around the kit, much like the popular remote cable hi-hat systems for acoustic drums. Moreover, the hi-hat 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!

AUX INPUT Connection to Play Along With Your Favorite Tunes!


The DTX500K includes an audio input for connecting an external music player to the module so you can play along with your favorite music, either though the main output or in your headphones, so you can quickly master the piece you want to learn note for note.

 







Programmable Click Tracks with the Hi-Performance Metronome!


The DTX500K is equipped with a high-performance, programmable metronome made for drummers that allows complicated rhythms and tones to be set.The RS40 rack system comes pre-assembled for easy setup and offers solid performance in a light weight, fold-able design for easy storage.
