A complete 5-piece electronic kit packed with features at a price that'll allow you to explore electronic drumming without the steep price tag of most kits!

The Yamaha DTXPLORER is an electronic drum set that brings Yamaha's renowned electronic drum technology within reach of the beginner, hobbyist, and educator. The 5-piece electronic drum kit features high-impact single-zone rubber pads with natural feel and rebound, a kick pedal, hi-hat controller module, rack, and coded cabling for easy setup.

At the heart of the DTXPLORER is its compact trigger module, with a 16-bit/32-note polyphony tone generator that produces amazingly realistic, physically modeled voices. Choose from 214 drum and percussion sounds, 22 preset songs, and 32 preset drum kits covering rock, funk, jazz, reggae, and Latin styles. An array of onboard digital effects let you tweak your sound to your liking. Create and store up to 10 custom kits. The module also includes the Groove Check practice feature, a multifunction metronome, backlit LCD display, and simple plug-and-play connections. Auxiliary and MIDI inputs expand the kit's versatility, allowing you to connect to a PC or other device. The headphone output allows quiet practice.

32 Factory Kits, 10 User Kits, 214 Voices
The 32 factory-programmed kits give you a wide variety of kits that can be used in almost any musical situation. The 10 user kits allow you to build custom kits using any of the 214 voices for your particular needs as a musician.

Groove Check with Rhythm Gate

The DTXPL module has Yamaha's popular Groove Check function, but takes it to the next level as a learning tool. You can engage the Rhythm Gate so that when you play out of time the module will mute the drums until you get back in time with the click.

Multi-zone Inputs
The snare input will accept a three-zone pad (not included) giving you the head, rim shot, and cross stick sounds. The cymbal inputs will accept dual zone cymbals and allow cymbal choking.

Includes a Bass Drum Pedal
The DTXPL comes complete with an FP-6210 strap drive pedal so you don't have to purchase a pedal separately.

Great Buy!

Comments about Yamaha DTXplorer Electronic Drum Set:

After receiving all the items and getting it all set up, I plugged it into my studio mixer.. and wow! I am impressed with this. I wish the pads were a little bigger tho. I don't see an easy way to upgrade without some major modifications. The sounds are fantastic for this cheap item! It would be ideal for the beginner/practice. But I wish there were better options to upgrade to larger pads for at least the snare. I am normally a guitarist and needed something realistic for drums. This is perfect!

Great set for the price

Comments about Yamaha DTXplorer Electronic Drum Set:

Got this set to use on our worship team. It works great and sounds great. I went ahead and bought a triple zone snare pad with it which really makes the set usable in most situations. I would highly recommend this set.

Great drum kit for the price!

By LuKaii

from Merriam, KS

Comments about Yamaha DTXplorer Electronic Drum Set:

I bought this drum kit so that I could practice at home for our church band and not be heard by my neighbors (I always use headphones when I play). Excellent features for the low-end price! Several different drum models to play, or you can create your own unique sound. I also play on the Yamaha DTXpress IV Special at church, and that set utilizes many of the same pads and drum models. Nice to know that you get some of the features that you would get for paying for the more expensive kits. All-around great purchase!

Great kit!

By Cody-RD.mf

Comments about Yamaha DTXplorer Electronic Drum Set:

I really enjoy playing this kit. In fact, I enjoy playing it so much that I now have a stress fracture in my right foot from too much hard core jamming too soon. The rubber pads are a little harder on the joints and are much different from an acoustic kit, of course. However, I still like the responsiveness of the drum pads and the samples are pretty decent. I have started some recording with this kit and I am fairly pleased, although I am used to the amazing sounds of acoustic kits, but this gets the job done for quiet play anytime. The features are simple and easy to use, while still providing a lot to offer, especially the "Groove Check" feature. I rated this product 5 of 5 due to its ease of use, durability, and playability.
