The Yamaha DTX452 Electronic Drum Kit is the chief of the DTX402 range thanks to the addition of a real kick pedal with a sensor and the improved snare that has a triple sensor built in. This means that, along with proper pedalling technique, you can also advance further on your snare work with the ability to use rimshots and multiple areas of the snare for accents. For beginners, intermediate or advanced players, the DTX452 has something to offer.
Yamaha is a well-respected name in the musical instrument production industry and along with the DTX452, you are guaranteed impressive quality, durability and a digital kit that will help new players grow and offer advanced players a compact little kit to practice on.
10 pre-loaded kits
The DTX452 comes with 10 kit setups pre-loaded, all of which can be customised and overwritten using the 287 onboard sounds opening up a near limitless amount of combinations to suit your liking. Some of these sounds are sampled straight from Yamaha's own top line of acoustic drum kits and offer exceptional articulation.
The easy to operate 'brain' of the Yamaha DTX452 offers a simple to operate panel with a one-touch selection of built-in drum kits. A clear red LED indication displays which kit is currently active - ideal for performance and practice in darker venues.
The 'brain' also gives you clear control over the built-in metronome, adjustment for tempo and volume as well as a training mode button to dive straight into developing your technique. Finally, you will find connectivity for USB, a 3.5mm line into filter music through to the 6.3mm output and connectivity for the supplied power adapter. Like the rest of the kit, this integral unit is built to last and looks as sleek as it is strong.
Arsenal of high quality sounds
The DTX452 gives you access to a plethora of percussion instruments. Any instrument can be triggered from any pad, you can even set the kit up to reflect using a double bass pedal. To help develop your skills, the DTX452 contains onboard routines including warm-ups and groove exercises. There's even a voice guidance system that speaks the result of your sessions!
Thanks to the USB connectivity and the ability to connect to the iOS DTX Touch app, the DTX452 can even be used to control sounds in your favourite DAW on PC or Mac as well as the ever-expanding backing library and record functionality that the app offers. For players of all levels that want to practice, perform and compose without upsetting the neighbours, the Yamaha DTX452 Electronic Drum Kit is a very strong digital kit candidate.
