Compact electronic drum set with advanced cymbals, 40 built-in kits and innovative Kit Modifier

Yamaha DTX 6 electronic drum sets, like this DTX6K2-X are built around a robust module with innovative features created from Yamaha's decades at the top of the music world. Among other advanced capabilities, this DTX-PRO module introduces the Kit Modifier, developed by Yamaha to spark creativity and an authentic playing experience. The DTX 6 series comes in multiple pad configurations to match every level of drummer.

5-Piece DTX6K2 Configuration With Advanced Snare and Cymbals

This DTX6K configuration offers all the features of the module and several premium pads, including three choke-able PCY135 cymbals—two as crashes, and one as a ride. The RHH135 hi-hat pad is mounted on a real Yamaha HS650A hi-hat stand (included) for a truly authentic playing experience. The XP80 snare pad features a TCS head to provide a natural feel and rebound, for versatile performance and expression with open- and closed-rim playability. The three rubber TP70 tom pads and KP90 kick pad complete a classic 5-piece configuration.

Intuitive Control Over Voicing

At the center of the DTX-PRO module is the Kit Modifier. Yamaha has cultivated their unique voicing over decades, creating some of the most expressive sounds in music. With the Kit Modifier, this valuable experience has been condensed into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION and EFFECT. With the simple twist of a dial, it is possible to express a wide range of sounds, from classic acoustic to unique electronic sounds created by professional engineers and producers. It's an effortless way to manipulate tons of complex voices all at once.

TCS Head for Unprecedented Feel

Rather than the typical mesh or rubber, the snare on this DTX 6 kit features a Yamaha TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) head. Yamaha uses this proprietary head in their flagship models. The feel is designed to complement the sounds, recorded in a world-renowned studio, to create an authentic experience for all the senses. Along with the intuitive sound customization and compact pad format, these technologies create a balanced, realistic, highly functional drumming experience.

Daily Training Features for Drummers at Every Level

The rich practice functions of DTX-PRO are designed to help any drummer hone their chops. It's got a highly sophisticated metronome, programmable to help with complex time signatures and patterns. Ten training functions are perfect for improving a drummer’s sense of rhythm, with a recorder function for keeping track of the progress. Players can even explore genres with 37 diverse training songs. From beginners to professionals, anyone will find useful functions for daily practice.

Rec'n'Share Brings E-Kits Into the Next Generation

Connect an iOS or compatible Android device to the module to use the Rec'n'Share app. There's no easier way to record drums over a backing track and share the results. Just pick a favorite song from the device's music library, and the app's tempo detection can add a click, change the tempo and select sections to repeat, creating a custom backing track within Rec'n'Share. When it's time to capture the performance, the app can simultaneously record video from the phone's camera, stereo digital audio from the instrument and stereo backing tracks from the music library. After recording, use the app's editing functions to trim and balance the results. Drums can also be recorded clean, with no backing track at all.

With advanced features and a convenient configuration, the Yamaha DTX 6 series is recommended for all drummers who want to have fun, play like a pro and easily transfer their hard-earned skills to acoustic drums.
