Yamaha DTX6 Electronic Drum Set (DTX6K2-X)

Yamaha DTX6K2-X Electronic Drum Set

The Yamaha DTX6K2-X Electronic Drum Kit is a powerful, engaging drumming experience with compact convenience. It features the DTX-PRO module with the innovative Kit Modifier sparking creativity and delivering superb performance in a compact configuration. The original Yamaha TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) head used in the flagship models combined with real sound and ambiance recorded in a world-renowned studio to provide an authentic playing experience.

Real Sounds that Drive the Drummer

No compromise has been made in recording the sound of the instruments themselves, the key to any drum sound, along with the ambiance of the place where they are played. The DTX PRO has been fine-tuned to follow the drummer’s performance and allow for maximum expression.

Ergonomics

The acoustic drum sounds built into the DTX-PRO are all real sounds recorded in well-known studios. In addition, we have actual ambiance elements that are unique to those studios. A professional recording engineer has recorded and mixed performances by leading Yamaha artists, which the sound director, an electronic musical instrument development professional, has used extensively, from the initial attack until the very end of the recording. With a sound module carefully matched to the pads that are the drummer’s interface with their instrument, it has been fine-tuned to follow along with the player’s performance and offer excellent expressive capabilities.

Intuitive functionality that Stirs Creativity

Kit Modifier condenses the sound creation know-how that Yamaha has accumulated over decades into three knobs: Ambience, Compression, and Effect. A wide range of tonal possibilities is available from the natural sound of acoustic drums through to live performance sounds carefully crafted by engineers. The Ambience knob controls the reverberation of the drum sound; for an acoustic drum kit, up to 50% of the memory features the real ambiance components of the recording studio, while 51-100% is high-quality digital reverb. The Comp and effect knobs utilize the 1 knob control technology featured in Yamaha PA products.

Superbly Playable

Reproducing the way an acoustic drum behaves when struck is a key factor in the playability of electronic drums. It features 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. 

High-Performance Sound Engine that Recreates Sound Creation

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.

Extensive Range Training Functions to Support Drummers

The wealth of practice functions featured in DTX Drums is also found in the DTX-PRO. Make the most of a sophisticated programmable metronome, recorder function, 10 training functions that are ideal for training 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.

Superbly Playable

Reproducing the way a 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 authentic sound tuned by a skilled sound director. Yamaha has undertaken an exhaustive investigation of how drums respond when hit, leveraging this information to achieve a truly faithful representation of instrument behavior.

Everything a Drummer Needs

The DTX-PRO comes equipped with an abundance of terminals that support a wide range of applications. The USB terminal can send and receive MIDI, and also sends and receives audio data when connected directly to a computer or smart device allowing you to send sound directly from the DTX to DAW software or a smart device. The unit also comes with a MIDI OUT terminal allowing you to send MIDI signals to connected MIDI devices. Up to 14 pads can be connected to the trigger input terminals making it simple to create a hybrid setup with acoustic drums.

Professional-Grade Headphone Amp

Offering high-precision, low-distortion, low-noise and high-power components, the headphone amplifier circuit delivers high-fidelity sound directly to the player and was developed exclusively for electronic drums.

RS6 Electronic Drum Mounting Rack

A Yamaha traditional ball clamp is used for the snare drum clamp, enabling fine adjustment. The cymbal holder provides a more flexible setting.

The left side of the rack is designed to allow the hi-hat stand and double foot pedal to be set freely, for stress-free performance. L-shaped legs with an acoustic look further improve stability. The RS6 includes boom arms and the cymbal holders provide increased flexibility.
