Yamaha DTX482K Electronic Drum Kit



Yamaha DTX482K Electronic Drum Kits, high end sound on a low end budget.

The 482K is the flagship of the Yamaha 402 series of drum kits. Benefitting from an authentic hammer driven style kick pedal and tri-zone, sillicone snare pad that allows the player to play realistic rim shots on Yamaha’s best feeling pad, this kit is ideal for taking your first steps in drums and long into the future. With an additional cymbal pad included this kit is likely to please even advanced drummers.

402 Series electronic drum kits are quite simply the best sounding beginner electronic kits available. The ability that Yamaha have to sample their own acoustic drum kits puts them at an advantage over every other main stream electronic kit dealer.

The Sound

Yamaha sample their own drum kits to provide 10 great sounding kits in one module. With a combination of acoustic and electronic sounds, this kit is a flexible as you need it to be. Quickly and easily edit kits and make your own custom kits with a huge range of sounds to choose from.

Cymbal Pads

Like most entry level kits Yamaha 402 Series electronic drum kits feature single zone cymbal pads which normally means you can only get one type of sound from them but with some clever engineering Yamaha have included a bell sound that triggers when you hit the cymbal harder meaning you can still change between the bow and bell sound on your cymbals. They have a great feel and response for a realistic playing experience and are even choke-able. The 482 features an extra cymbal pad compared to the other kits in this range, giving you the two crash setup most gigging drummers use.

The Snare Pad

As the flagship model in the 402 Series of drum kits the 482 features an upgraded silicone snare pad. The Yamaha silicone pads are the most realistic pads available and closely mimic the feel of a real snare drum. They are normally only available on kits twice the price of this one.

The Kick Pedal

The DTX482K drum kit comes with a highly regarded Yamaha bass drum pedal included which gives you reliability and realism straight out of the box. No need to go spend more money on a kick pedal.


Yamaha 402 series drum kits benefit from 10 built in training functions that only an electronic drum kit can offer. This includes the ‘Rhythm Gate’ feature which helps to foster a sense of timing.

The App

All DTX 402 Series drum kits are compatible with the ‘DTX402 Touch’ iOS and Android apps which when connected to the drum kit offer touch screen control, quick and easy recording and sharing, and advanced sound editing capabilities. Touch screen functionality in a kit at this price range makes DTX drum kits a real stand out.

Connect to a PC

The USB port on this kit allows drummers with an interest in music production to plug their kits directly into a computer to make use of external sounds or even to operate as a midi controller.
