True Yamaha Playability and Feel
With more than 45 years in the drum business Yamaha are no strangers to the importance of playability. Using their knowledge and experience Yamaha have designed the DTX400K to meet the real needs of drummers and provide a natural response with solid durability and authentic stick rebound. The rubber surface prevents stick slippage making it easy to practice single, double and triple strokes.
With a completely new module, durable steel rack, 7.5" drum pads and pedal design the small and compact DTX400K has been designed from scratch for the entry level market. The DTX400K's overall size and the design of the 3 zone snare and toms provide a comfortable drumming experience for newer players. The new KU100 kick unit provides silent operation for the bass drum without sacrificing dynamic expression and matches the included hi-hat pedal. Add to this the large 10" cymbals plus hi-hat and you have a drum kit that feels great, is fun to play and is a valuable practice tool. The dimensions of the DTX400K and the real bass drum pedal action are also designed so that the skills learned can be easily transferred onto an drum acoustic kit. But of course, the beauty of a digital drum kit for a beginner, is that you can practice in silence until you're ready to show off your skills!

Boasting some of the highest quality sounds in its class, the DTX400K's built-in sound module houses stereo recordings of real drums, cymbals and percussion that respond dynamically to your touch for true musical expression.
