The DTX450K electronic drum set is a member of Yamaha's entry-level DTX400 series. In the DTX400, series there are currently two kits to choose from. There is the DTX400K and the more expensive DTX450K. Both kits have many features which make them ideally suited to home practicing. The DTX400K has a low-noise beaterless bass drum controller which is one such feature. On this page we will discuss the second drum set, the DTX450K, which features a bass drum pad over the aforementioned beaterless controller pedal, along with a more responsive snare drum.
WHO SHOULD BUY THE YAMAHA DTX450K?
This kit is an ideal beginner kit and can even go so far as to function well as a practice aid for seasoned players. The kit is a typical electronic kit configuration with five drums and three cymbals.
The sounds on this kit's DTX400 drum module are good but not on a professional level. They are suited to home practicing and band rehearsal but probably fall short when it comes to live performing. There just isn't the nuance and expression required to put the DTX400 module in this category. But, you will have enough sounds to play along with the built-in songs or your favorite albums using the Aux in port, while having a lot of fun in the process.
The sounds range from acoustic kits to electronic kits to percussion. Beginners will find playing on this kit will give them an expectation of what a real acoustic kit is all about. Experienced drummers will find that the sounds take some of the boredom out of playing on a practice pad. Both levels of players will find the onboard drumming tutorial feature a helpful addition. Yamaha have included several innovative exercises that are designed to improve your timing, skill and accuracy on the drums, and that will appeal to everyone.
