It takes skills to survive in the tribe. The training functions of the DTX400K 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.
Practice at home, Play on the stage! Playability and Feel from a Drum Company
Yamaha has been making drums for over 45 years and they know that playability is important to all drummers. Using experience gained from developing the popular DTX-PAD Yamaha 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. And as an entry-level kit, the dimensions of the DTX400K give you a nice, comfortable area in which to play so you can really rock out.
The new KU100 Kick unit has superior silent characteristics without sacrificing playability. All of these features from a leading drum company are there to help you become a great drummer.
