WHD 517-DX Pro

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

This kit is equipped with Mesh heads on all of the drums, including the kick drum, which give a thoroughly authentic drumming experience. Being carefully designed to feel as much like an acoustic drum as possible, the pads are also Dual Zone, offering Rim shots as well as drum hits. All of the cymbals have a Choke function, and the Ride cymbal has an additional Bell hit function, making the whole kit as close to acoustic drums as is possible.

Realistic Acoustic Drum Sounds
The DD517-DX has an impressive 678 Drum and Percussion sounds, as well as 18 Hi-hat combinations, which have been arranged into 40 great sounding preset kits. These sounds can be used individually to create your own custom kits, and 59 user kits can be stored for future use. All user kits can be stored on an SD card, so you can take your sounds with you, and load your custom kits on to another compatible kit.

Perfect Your Technique
This kit has 120 preset songs which have been selected to give a wide range of fun and informative tracks for play along. Perfect for practice, the drum track can be removed so you can take this role yourself. An inbuilt metronome helps you keep time whilst the LCD display lets you know if you play too fast or too slow. The Sequencer function means that you can record your parts and listen back to them, or store them on the SD card so you can listen to them anywhere, which can be an invaluable practice tool.

Versatile Computer Connectivity
The DD517-DX is fully Midi compatible, with both USB and Midi in and out connections. This allows you to record your drumming straight on to the computer, or use your kit to trigger other Midi equipped instruments, making this kit a versatile performance tool. With the SD card, you can easily transfer you recorded and sequenced parts on to another device, and with the Auxiliary Input you can connect any CD or mp3 player, allowing you to jam along to your favourite tracks.
