Yamaha DTX400K
Hello,
It should be noted first that I am not drummer ... but guitarist based ... I play acoustic drums as often as possible during répèts with my group and it was a few years I wanted an electronic home ...
My main selection criterion was the silence ... 'm in an apartment, I have neighbors, children, a wife and I want to play when I want! Having had experience with a colleague to hear the sound level produced bat kick, I naturally turned to the silent dtx400K and his bat (which seems highly displeasing to the real drummers ... ;) The second criterion was the size of the beast ...

Very disappointed with the Roland HD1 (for GC once the bat is really too soft) I admit that I had a priori rather negative about this type of bats, a priori these are gone as soon as I put my feet on one of the dtx400K. I find it easier than the real bats, the answer is correct in my opinion, even if I'm going to throw rocks (I remind you that I am not drummer!) ... the only thing I fear above there is a real return on drums ... I would say that ...

I was looking for something easy to access ... not a module gasworks and it suits me perfectly ... integrated sounds are very good, everything is customizable and a few hours I have a kit with sounds that suit me, balanced.
Playing with the gain and velocity on each pad I end up with a drumkit that meets progressively as typing ... What happy ...
I tried to stick with Groove Agent, recognized without problem under Windows 7 and XP ...
Good snare rubber against ... I really do not like ... but I reparlerais after ...

I've had a little over a month. Daily use of one to two hours and some weekends marathons screwed onto the stool ... I would do the same choice without hesitation.

The only thing that bothers me a bit is the cymbals
- Non-chockables ... Too bad I'd midi!
- Simple but areas ... produce some wrinkles bell according to the intensity of the striking ... I made it ...
Charley and the controller without (open and closed ... no way see below)

I had a budget of a thousand euros so I tried dtx 430K 450K, 550K, and a few references to the final at Roland I stopped on the following config:
- Dtx400K
- Pad Charley HH65 (middle position)
- Snare Roland PDX 100 (I did not like the pads kits yamaha 450 and 55O)

Suddenly, with a piti Crafts (Recycling sensor snare original controller mounted on the original HH and dual input jack in the GC) I end up with a drumkit with double bass drum pedal more and HH next Roland snare (without rimshots) for 750 euros ... and there if I have to note is 10 ...


To summarize:

most: very very quiet, compact (row is not 100 X 60 cm folded), the sounds are very good module, ease of use.
Cons: single zone cymbals and non chockables, snare rubber, given the limited development module.
