Yamaha DTX6K-X Electronic Drum Set
Reproducing the way an acoustic drum behaves when struck is a key factor in the playability of electronic drums.
Our electronic drums feature a sound module that covers the full range of sound from the initial attack to the final cutoff, all based on samples of authentic drums tuned by a skilled engineer. We have carried out exhaustive testing of how acoustic drums respond when they’re hit to help achieve a truly faithful representation of drum behavior. Moreover, professional drummers from around the world have evaluated the performance of the DTX-PRO, allowing us to improve its expressive capabilities even further. The wealth of expertise we have acquired as a manufacturer of music hardware has allowed us to offer combinations of expertly-crafted modules and pads that deliver superb playability.
High-Performance Sound Engine
The high-performance sound engine equipping the DTX-PRO leverages the technologies that Yamaha has acquired over decades of making musical instruments of all kinds. With authentic acoustic and live drum sounds, the same high-end effects found in professional-grade synthesizers and audio equipment and effect control functions that let you recreate the techniques of elite drummers with a single knob, the sound engine in the DTX-PRO even recreates the process of creating sound in recording studios and live performance scenarios.
Yamaha drum pads feature pad-sensing technologies that respond with precise accuracy to the actions of the player delivering the ultimate in expressive capability reflected in the sound.
Reliable Yamaha Hardware
The Yamaha HS650A hi-hat stand is included with the DTX6K2-X and the DTX6K3-X. The DTX Series also uses traditional Yamaha ball clamps for the snare pads making fine adjustment of settings easy.
Yamaha is also an acoustic drum maker trusted by many professional drummers for its robustness, ease of use and stability.

The wealth of practice functions featured in DTX Drums are also found in the DTX-PRO. Make the most of a sophisticated, programmable metronome, recorder function, 10 training functions ideal for developing a sense of rhythm, as well as 37 training songs that allow you to learn various genres. Beginners and professionals alike will find the DTX6 training functions a useful aid for daily practice.
