Product Description

The Yamaha DTX450K is perfect for anyone wanting a more authentic feel and response from an electronic kit. Having professional hi-hat and kick drum pedals along with the 3 zone snare pad, you can really feel and hear the benefits of moving from the DTX400K to the DTX450K.  Being compact and lightweight, setting it up in a small space like a bedroom or loft is easy. In addition you can play almost silently whilst using headphones. Therefore practice can happen day or night without disturbing family or neighbours! The DTX450K features the highest quality sounds in its class, as well as interactive training functions and built-in practice songs. Load new songs via USB and upgrade and expand your kit as you develop your drumming ability.

The DTX450 is so simple to set up and begin playing. There are extended features that support skill development, leading to endless hours of fun for young and old drummers alike. The onboard computer demonstrates rhythms and techniques from entry level to advanced. They are also supported by the DTX’s iPad Yamaha app for a game-like experience, keeping learning fun.

When designing the DTX450K, Yamaha have drawn on their expertise as the music industry’s largest producer of musical instruments with over 125 years of experience and quality craftsmanship. The DTX450 pads have been  redesigned 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. Allowing you to practice single, double and triple stroke techniques for use on a set of acoustic drums. The new TP70S  is a 3-zone snare pad that lets you play open and closed rim-shots for even more snare expression. For the kick drum you get a real Yamaha FP6110A bass drum pedal. This provides smooth action and real feel for developing your foot technique to play an acoustic bass drum. The HH65 remote hi-hat controller lets you to play the hi-hat with more expression, allowing not just open and closed but also half-open, pedal and splash hi-hat sounds.

The DTX450K  includes the new TP70S snare pad. This allows playing snare head, open rimshot, and closed rimshot voices in each of the three zones for more musical expression. The genuine Yamaha bass drum pedal that provides authentic feel for the kick drum is included. As well as the HH65 adjustable hi-hat controller pedal.  Both these pedals mahe drum playing a lot more realistic. Three 10” cymbals are mounted to chrome cymbal stands on a steel rack system to provide a solid foundation for your rhythm sessions. The DTX utilises voices from the professional Yamaha DTX900/700/500 and DTX-MULTI 12. Therefore each DTX450K has extremely high sound quality with “Accent Articulation” for dynamic instruments that change sound characteristics according to your hit strength. You can freely mix any of the 169 organic drum sounds to create customized kits that suit your style.  Try a heavy metal double bass kit one day then change into a dance kit the next, or keep your ten favorite kits of all time. You get a world of choices inside, from 23 snares, 21 kicks, 36 toms, 31 cymbals, and 42 percussion instruments. With the included 3-zone snare pad, real bass drum pedal and pro hi-hat controller pedal, the DTX450K is really like having ten professional drum sets in one compact electronic drum kit.
Connect the DTX450K to your computer with the USB-MIDI jack. This will allow you to control VSTi drum sounds and enjoy recording into DAW software such as Cubase*2. You can also import new songs and beats to use in the training functions with the Musicsoft Downloader*3. 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”. You can also take on the rigorous “Fast Blast” challenge if you think you have the stamina. There is even a “Voice Guidance” system that “speaks” the results of your sessions to encourage you on your rhythmic journey.
