Ten Professional Drum Sets in One Compact Electronic Drum Kit
The DTX430K comes equipped with 10 professional drum kits made with world-famous sounds from throughout the history of drums including Yamaha’s legendary acoustic series. By utilizing voices from our professional DTX900/700/500 and DTX-MULTI 12, each kit has extremely high sound quality with “Accent Articulation” for dynamic instruments that change sound characteristics according to your hit strength.
But that’s not all – you can freely mix any of the 169 organic drum sounds to create customized kits that suit your style – even if your style is always changing. Try a heavy metal double bass kit one day then change into a dance kit the next, or keep your ten favorite kits of all time. You get a world of choices inside: 23 snares, 21 kicks, 36 toms, 31 cymbals, and 42 percussion instruments. With the included real bass drum pedal and pro hi-hat controller pedal, the DTX430K is really like having ten professional drum sets in one compact electronic drum kit.
Best of DTX sounds
It takes skills to survive in the tribe. The training functions of the DTX430K have been expanded for drummers and enthusiasts of all levels. There are 10 onboard routines including warm ups, groove tools, and drumming games designed with Yamaha’s experience in Music Education to make practice fun and effective.
Even if you never played drums before, the intuitive “Groove Tracker” will help you pick up the beat. All drummers can improve their groove with “Rhythm Gate”, or take on the rigorous “Fast Blast” challenge if you think you have the chops. There is even a “Voice Guidance” system that “speaks” the results of your sessions to encourage you on your rhythmic journey.
Playability and Feel from a Drum Company
Yamaha has been making drums for over 45 years, so we know that playability is important to all drummers. Using experience gained from developing the popular DTX-PAD we have redesigned the drum pads of the DTX400 series to provide a natural response, solid durability and excellent stick feel. The new pads use a rubber surface so your sticks will not slide around on the head, and you can practice single, double and triple stroke techniques for use on a set of acoustic drums.
For the kick drum you get a real Yamaha FP6110A bass drum pedal that provides smooth action and real feel for developing your foot technique to play an acoustic bass drum. The HH65 remote hi-hat controller pedal lets you to play the hi-hat with more expression, allowing not just open and closed but also half-open, pedal and splash hi-hat sounds.
As of November 2015, Yamaha is giving the option of a confidence boosting extra 36 months warranty on all newly purchased DTX400 series Electronic Drums kits.
