Yamaha's DTX range of electronic drum sets spans from compact entry-level rubber-padded offerings, through higher-specced modules with mesh-head kits to full-on pro-level set-ups. Having reviewed them at all levels, we can tell you they stack up extremely well against the best of their rivals' offerings for both performance and value.
So it's been a source of some frustration that previous Cyber Mondays have come and gone without a sniff of a proper discount on DTXs. It's a very different story this year, though, with discounts available across the range at Sweetwater.
These are the Yamaha DTX kits and deals we think you should be taking a very serious look at this weekend...
Perfect for beginners
Was $699, now $559
When we reviewed the 452's sibling the DTX402, we praised its 'great sounds, engaging training tools for budding players and compact footprint'. The 452 boasts the same virtues and beginner-friendly price point, but adds upgraded pedals and a triple-zone snare drum.
Moving on up
Was $4,639, now $3,929
Now we're talking. The prestige 10K-M looks the part with large real wood shells adorning multi-zone mesh heads all-round, powered by Yamaha's top-end DTX PROX module, plus multi-zone cymbals and pro-quality hardware throughout. Tasty.
