This kit gives you all the sound quality and versatility of a large collection at a fraction on the cost. With real-feeling, responsive pads and plethora of samples at your disposal it's no wonder why so many pros choose Yamaha!

The Yamaha DTX522K Electronic Drum Set definitely gives you a lot of bang for your buck.  This incredibly affordable and diverse kit comes equipped with the DTX502 drum module, which delivers an unrivaled sound and response.  

The Yamaha DTX522K Electronic Drum Set comes with a snare pad, three tom pads, a bass drum pad, two cymbal pads, and a hi-hat pad with pedal controller. This kit is held together by the ever solid RS502 Drum Rack which was designed to be transportable and easy to set up.  The tom and kick pads have a traditional and familiar "practice pad" surface while the snare pad has been upgraded to the XP80. This is a three zone pad composed of textured cellular silicone. The silicone gives the pad a soft, smooth feel with an excellent rebound. It also helps eliminate cross-talk between the drums, giving you a pure, true sound.

The Yamaha DTX502 Drum Module is the heart and soul of this kit.  With over 690 sounds, 50 preset drum kits covering virtually every genre, you’re sure to find the perfect sound for the gig. This module also gives you the ability to create up to 50 different “user kits” where you can create and store your own personalized sets. The DTX502 drum module gives you the same sound quality and versatility as many large collections, except you won’t have to spend a fortune. It is also equipped with a high-quality metronome that allows you to customize the rhythm and tone functions to your liking. It also has "Groove-Check" and "Rhythm-Gate" features which will really test your sense of time. From a bedroom or dorm room to a studio or stage, the Yamaha DTX522K is ready to play!

        This Yamaha kit includes a single mesh snare pad with superb sensitivity. While the realistic cymbal pads mimic the movement of real acoustic cymbals. Great for all applications and ideal for a church set up. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Ontario.

              Comments about Yamaha DTX522K 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

              This Yamaha DTX522K 5-Piece kit feels great! The soft-touch feel of the snare head is extremely natural, and the rubber cymbal and tom pads have great rebound response.

              The brain is surprisingly well built for a $1000 Yamaha, with tons of sounds and fully-programmable custom kits. The jog wheel makes it easy to navigate the wide variety of kits a quickly, so transitioning pre-sets during a show is effortless.

              This is the perfect kit for practicing at home using the built-in metronome, and because it's so lightweight and folds up, it makes an excellent gig kit as well!

              Pros

              • durability
              • Realistic Feeling Snare
              • Yamaha Quality

                  Comments about Yamaha DTX522K 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

                  Yamaha electronic drum kits are the ones to beat. They have a much more dynamic and true drum sound than the competition, they have the best feeling pads and their warranty crushes Roland.

                  The new gel-based pads that come on the snare drum pad of this kit are the most realistic feeling pads money can buy. They don't have the issue of ripping, like the Roland mesh pads, nor are they too bouncy and springy like the Roland mesh pads can be.

                  The Roland warranty is a stunning 90 days, whereas the Yamaha warranty is a full year.

                  The Yamaha electronic drums are really the ones to beat in the market today.

                  Comments about Yamaha DTX522K 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

                  This is a great set. Very versatile with awesome realistic sound. The feel of the pads is great and makes you want to keep playing. I use this for my bands rehearsal space since its so small and his kit barely takes up any room. I've been on a lot of electric kits and for the price this one is superior in its lane. I recommend this for anybody looking for quality without putting up their whole life savings.

                          A great electronic kit for the price! The dtx series is one of the more drummer friendly electronic sets in that it comes with more relevant presets. Instead of have a rock kit, hip hop kit, jazz kit, etc. The programmed kits are organized by wood. Absolutely love the realism you get with this kit!

                            The DTX522K is sub $1000, but it has many more sounds and features than some of its competitors in the same price range. Some of those features include 50 preset drum kits, all 3-Zone cymbals and a 3-Zone silicone snare. As with all Yamaha instruments, the kit is well constructed and can take a beating. The DTX522K is a great value!
