Making its debut at Musikmesse 2010, Yamaha's new DTX550K Electronic Drum kit is designed to "bring professional percussion performance, sound, and feel to drummers on a budget."

The configuration of the DTX550K focuses on the fundamentals: the Snare, Hi-Hat, and Cymbals, three of the core components of any drum kit. The focal point of the DTX550K is the newly developed DTX-PAD Snare, the "XP100SD."

Foot splash capable, the Hi-Hat offers the "RHH135" integrated pad and controller, designed to respond naturally to hands and feet. Two-zone construction features separate pad and edge zones, enabling drummers to play in a range of styles. "PCY135" and "PCY155" three-zone choke-able cymbal pads are used as Crash (13") and Ride (15") Cymbals.

The DTX550K features 427 internal sounds, created by a tone generator that handles both subtly nuanced snare-work and dynamic, powerful drum strokes with ease. These include 50 preset drum kits that cover a diverse range of genres, including rock, funk, jazz, reggae, and Latin. With on-board, high quality digital reverb, the module stores up to 20 original drum kits.

The kit also offers a "RS85A" rack, equipped with a ball clamp that allows the Snare pad to be set to the right angle, as well as 12 trigger inputs that allow drummers to connect additional Toms and Cymbals to create their own original kit configurations.

Pricing & Availability
The DTX550K has an MSRP of $2,499 and will be available in the United States in July 2010.
