Yamaha DTX522K Electronic Drum Kit
The Yamaha DTX522K Electronic Drum Kit is designed to give a natural playing experience, from the high-quality natural-sounding presets to the three-zone silicone snare pad that feels like a real snare drum and the new tom pads that are softer than other rubber pads and have a great dynamic range. The strong drum rack is easy to change for left-handed or right-handed drummers, to ensure you'll be comfortable whatever your preference.
The USB MIDI in/out allows you to connect the DTX522K to your computer with a standard USB cable. No MIDI drivers are required, and you can easily record tracks to your computer or play sounds from VST plugins. The kit also includes the free MusicSoft Downloader for loading samples, midi files and drum kits onto your kit, and there is a free Song Beat iOS app for iPhone and iPad to help you improve your drumming.
NEW! Powerful DTX502 Drum Trigger Module
The DTX502 has almost twice the wave ROM and over 250 more sounds than its predecessor and features new drum and cymbal samples from top VST developers that have been optimised for DTX. Also voices inherited from our other DTX modules have been updated for improved playability and sound.
Advanced Technology Under The Hood
Using proprietary laser technology to analyse drum strokes, we precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 series resulting in a more natural feeling with laser accuracy. You also get advanced features from our higher end models like cymbal muting, natural cymbal swells, and smoother snare drum rolls so the kits respond to every nuance of your playing, and 3-Zone hi-hat technology when using the PCY100 as a hi-hat pad.
3-Zone Cymbals with “Choke” Feature Deliver Realistic Expression!
The DTX522K also features our professional 3-zone cymbal pads, which can express a different sound in each of the cup, bow and edge zones. These cymbals have a good stick feel and low acoustic noise, which is essential for electronic drums when used for private practice. In addition to a very natural swaying motion, they also have the “choke” function 360-degrees around the edge. You can even mute the cymbal before striking it - a DTX exclusive feature!
New Design Offers Versatile Trigger and Upgrade Options
The DTX502 module is perfect for use in a ‘hybrid’ kit with your acoustic drum hardware, and can be expanded with four additional pads or triggers. Pad upgrades let you build your dream kit as your skills improve. USB connectivity lets you connect to a PC. Your original WAVE can be imported. Up to 12sec (sampling rate 44.1kHz, 16bit, mono) , 20 files (NOTES: The internal memory of DTX502 is also shared by external MIDI file, if you load for example "Song Beat" data, as well your original WAVE file. )

Still discovering how to use the kit to its full potential, but excellent so far.
Excellent kit - good sounds, lovely surface to play. Chose this over a Roland kit, having tried both, and very pleased with it. Lots of debate over silicone heads vs mesh heads and I preferred the Yamaha silicone head - worth trying both before you choose, they are different, but don't just listen to other people's views and reviews - check them out for yourself. Not a cheap kit, but you get a lot for your money; solid, robust components, great module with loads of kits, songs, sounds and features.Thoroughly recommend.
