40 studio-captured preset kits
Yamaha's DTX-PRO drum module sets you up with 40 complete drum kits, captured with all the punch, definition, and realism of a world-class studio environment.
200 custom user kits
Advanced users can use the DTX-PRO's 400 assignable voices to create custom kits for stage and studio. Want to blend electronic kick and snare with world percussion and acoustic cymbals? The DTX-PRO is your ticket to one-of-a-kind hybrid kits.
One-knob Kit Modifiers
The DTX-PRO's Kit Modifier section packs some extraordinary utility into just three knobs. You don't have to be a tone geek or electronics wizard to dial in custom sounds on this module. Just spin, set, and save.
- Ambience: this dial adjusts how "wet," or roomy, drums and cymbals sound in your virtual environment.
- Compression: drums really come alive with a shot of compression. A single Comp knob eliminates the need to worry about ratios, thresholds, and knees — just twist until it sounds good.
- Effect: this control delivers a diverse range of expression with the twist of a knob.
Loaded with training tools
Whether you're seasoned pro or you're just starting out, the DTX6K3-X's DTX-PRO module packs the tools to make you a better drummer. You get a sophisticated programmable metronome to rein in tricky fills, 37 training songs to workshop grooves and pocket, and 10 onboard training functions for sharpening your chops. There's even a record function so you can capture ideas and monitor your progress as you move along.
DTX6K3-X Pads and Stand
Expressive 3-zone TCS snare pad
The snare is the centerpiece of any drum kit, electronic or otherwise. We are happy to report that the Yamaha DTX6K3-X cuts no corners in this department. Its included XP80 pad gives you three separate zones for head strikes, rimshots, and cross-sticks. The Textured Cellular Silicone (TCS) playing surface is designed to feel like a real coated drumhead — only it's soft and easy on the joints, which is important when you're playing night after night. The XP80 snare is paired with a trio of single-zone TCS tom pads and Yamaha's KP90 kick tower for impressive expression across the kit.
Chokeable 3-zone cymbals
Equally impressive are the DTX6K3-X's included 3-zone PCY135 ride and crash cymbals. This PCY135s give you distinct edge/bow/bell zones to deliver lifelike cymbal response. For instance, you can choke the PCY135 after a crash by grabbing it anywhere on the edge of the pad. You can even mute a cymbal before striking it to create unique sonic textures. This creates an extra level of realism you don't get with many electronic drum kits.
Kick pedal not included
Yamaha RS6 rack system
A solid kit requires a solid foundation. And that's why the Yamaha DTX6K3-X includes the RS6 rack stand for effortless setups and unflappable security. A right-hand-only wrap bar positions your second crash and module for maximum ergonomics. On the left-hand side, a void supplies plenty of open space for hi-hats, double pedals, and more.
Yamaha HS-650A hi-hat stand included
Yamaha is renowned for its trap set hardware. The DTX6K3-X includes Yamaha's lightweight, chain-drive HS-650A for a classic response underfoot. Just add a kick pedal and throne, and the Yamaha DTX6K3-X is ready to rock.
