Improved Design on Module

The new design of the DTX402 series module now has a flatter top and a simplified look with the function/name of training mode labelled with each button. This will save the time and efforts for beginners to navigate through the functions.

Increased stability of rack

The new models feature a sturdier design which improved the stability of the rack. Drummers can now confidently jam on the snare pad without the worry that the pad might fall off. Height for toms and cymbals can be adjusted easily to suit the drummer’s preference.
