The Yamaha DTX6K2-X is a high-quality electronic drum set that provides exceptional sound and expressive performance at a mid-level price point. It is powered by Yamaha's next-level DTX-PRO drum module, which features 40 preset studio-sampled drum kits and 200 customizable user kits using the DTX6K2-X's 400 onboard assignable sounds.
One of the standout features of the DTX-PRO drum module is the Kit Modifier section, which allows for quick and easy tone modification using just three knobs. The Ambience knob adjusts the level of room ambience in the drum sound, while the Compression knob adds a shot of compression to the drums for added punch and definition. The Effect knob delivers a diverse range of expression, from subtle modulation to more extreme effects.
The DTX6K2-X also includes a variety of training tools to help improve your skills as a drummer. It features a programmable metronome, 37 training songs, and 10 onboard training functions for sharpening your chops. There is even a record function so you can capture your ideas and monitor your progress as you practice.
The pads included with the DTX6K2-X are also impressive. The XP80 snare pad features a Textured Cellular Silicone (TCS) playing surface that feels like a real coated drumhead, while offering a soft touch that is easy on the joints. It also has three separate zones for head strikes, rimshots, and cross-sticks. The three included single-zone rubber tom pads and the KP90 kick tower provide impressive expression across the kit.
The cymbals are equally impressive, with the included PCY135 ride and crash cymbals providing distinct edge, bow, and bell zones for lifelike cymbal response. They are also chokeable, meaning you can mute them before or after striking them for unique sonic textures.
The Yamaha DTX6K2-X comes with the Yamaha RS6 rack system, which provides a solid foundation for the kit and allows for effortless setups and unflappable security. The included Yamaha HS-650A hi-hat stand is lightweight and chain-driven, providing a classic response underfoot.
Overall, the Yamaha DTX6K2-X electronic drum set is a fantastic option for drummers looking for a high-quality, mid-level kit with impressive sound and expressive performance. Its customizable features, training tools, and robust hardware make it a great choice for practicing, recording, or performing in any setting.
