Yamaha premieres its completely revamped DTX-502 electronic drums at Musikmesse 2013. Based on the award-winning DTX-PAD, the new kits boast numerous innovations, including newly designed tom pads, a lighter-weight steel rack and a brand new drum trigger module that is more powerful than anything else in its class.

With almost twice the wave ROM and more than 250 additional sounds than the previous model, the new DTX502 drum trigger module is the first to incorporate drum and cymbal samples from top VST developers that have been optimized for DTX by Yamaha's sound engineers. For truly customized sounds and songs, the system lets users import audio samples and MIDI files for further expandability. During the development phase, Yamaha created proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes and precisely tune the trigger settings, so that the playing experience on each of these sets provides a more natural feel. It also includes advanced features from the higher-end DTX models such as cymbal muting, natural swells and smoother snare drum rolls.

"Most of the changes to the new DTX502 series can't be seen but they can be heard and felt," said Athan Billias, Director of Marketing, Yamaha Corporation of America, Pro Audio & Combo Division. "There's a lot more than meets to eye involved with this upgrade and drummers will be impressed when they get behind these new kits."

The new DTX502 module has a streamlined front panel layout that puts the most-used features at your fingertips, and features plug and play USB connectivity for easy interfacing with a computer.  The new design allows the DTX502 to be easily mounted to acoustic drum hardware using a standard multi-clamp (such as the Yamaha CSAT924A) for use in a hybrid acoustic-electronic drum set.

The DTX502 series includes new training and educational functions for drummers to improve their playing, no matter one's current skill level. With eight practice routines that help develop rhythmic timing, pad accuracy and drumming endurance, the system calculates a score after each session so that drummers can track their progress.
