MESSE10: New Yamaha Electronic Drum Kit


Yamaha's DTX550K made its debut in Frankfurt. Here's what Yamaha have to say about it...
The compact configuration of the DTX550K is centered on the Snare, Hi-Hat and Ride Cymbal, three of the core components of any drum kit. With an amazing feel and a diverse array of functions, the DTX550K comes with an impressive range of sounds that make it an ideal choice, whether practicing at home or performing live on stage.
  • Newly-developed 10-inch "XP100SD" DTX-PAD Snare pad.
  • Movable Hi-Hat ("HS650A" Hi-Hat stand included).
  • "PCY135" and "PCY155" 3-zone choke-capable Cymbal pads used as Crash (13 inch) and large size Ride (15 inch) Cymbals.
  • A diverse range of 427 carefully chosen high-quality internal sounds.
  • Strong, compact "RS85A" Rack, equipped with a ball clamp that allows the Snare pad to be set to exactly the right angle.
  • 12 trigger inputs allow you to connect additional Toms and Cymbals to create your own original kit configurations.
