Product Description

This package includes a pair of drum sticks, 2 footpedals, a power supply, a pair of stereo headphones, plus an extended 2-year warranty.

A complete digital drum kit at an incredible price, the DD55 makes a great compact drum kit for players of all levels. It can also be used as a MIDI controller for recording drum parts much more realistically than you could ever do with a keyboard. Features include new stereo drum samples, 2 included foot pedals, 174 total sounds, digital reverb, chorus & DSP, and GM compatibility. Its stereo speakers and headphone output let you play or rehearse with other musicians or privately.

The new Yamaha DD55 marks a transition to a more professional and versatile digital-drumming instrument. New stereo-sampled voices, a bass boost system and digital stereo processing give the DD55 an irresistible, thundering beat. And with the addition of adjustable pad sensitivity, you can pound out a spicy Latin rhythm with your hands. With its powerful features, this is no mere toy, although anyone can enjoy it.

"A well designed, practical, sensitive, easy to use drum machine which will last for years. Ideal for al ages and playing abilit"
Sound: The sound/s are awesome, put it thro a powered monitor with a 15" full range speaker and a horn tweeter and stand back! Just listening thro a pa system with your eyes closed convinces you are listening to a miked acoustic kit. The feel of the pads are great and very sensitive to touch. The only improvement I can think of, would be to make it even more velocity sensitive. The volume levels are about right, and they can be changed seperately if needed (according to the manual) Feature: Mine came with the drum pedals, the drum pedal I inserted into a custom made base, so mine doesnt go anywhere when I am playing. The hi-hat one I swapped for a Medeli hi-hat pedal, so they match. Ease of Use: Its easy to use,set up is quick and simple. I just change the bass drum, crash cymbal and snare sounds to suit me. I like the layout, obviously designed by a drummer (unlike the DD-65). It simplicity itself and doesnt cause confuson when you start to play, its ideal for a beginner, as you get decent sounds straight away and its quiet when turn the volume down or use headphones. Quality: Its very reliable and very robust, as I use a music stand to mount it on. I sometimes do street work with my group, so I wrapped some foam lagging pipe around the outside casing, to prevent any knocks or damage if it got dropped. th Value: Its excellent value for what it does, and highly recommended as a portable drum machine to used for a gigging drummer in small venues, as a recording kit in studios (no lengthy sound checks needed) and as a teaching module. It teaches u to be sensitive and as I play in a praise and worship group in my local church its ideal. Manufacturer Support: No dealings with company as I have no cause to contact them. The Wow Factor: The color is just right and very pleasing to look at, its design is excellent, I prefer it to the DD-65. I use it as my main instrument and I also have a full size electro kit. Its a brillant designed piece of electronics. I wouldnt use anyhing else! Overall: I rate this product very highly, it is not a toy (as I tell all the kids who come flocking around it at the meetings) its a serious piece of kit. Its so good, when I had the opportunity to buy another one at a knockdown price, I didnt hesitate!
Style of Music: Many and varied, but chiefly Gospel

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Has its place."
Sound: It sounds decent. I play through a bass amp. It has nice variety with tons of unusual sounds like whistles and woodblocks. Obviously inferior to a well-miked acoustic kit, but I fool tons of people with it. I think the crash symbols are the weakest sound. Feature: I am giving this a slightly low rating because although it comes with foot pedals (the key to allowing you to play it with the same skills an acoustic kit requires) they are really, really poor. You can use all sorts of third party pedals in place of the ones it comes with. I bought a Roland KD-8 kick trigger and a quality acoustic kick pedal and the difference was absolutely massive. Has a very solid feel on the right foot now. I am looking for a replacement for the hi hat pedal now. Ease of Use: It really is easy to use. I record with it and it just goes directly into the sound card with very little noise. Just turn it on and start hitting stuff. Quality: Mine has held up really well over time. Value: I'd say it's a decent value, but as the technology on electronic drum kits improve this will lose value over time. Considering that this has been around for quite a few years already, back in the day it was impressively before its time. Overall: I am a guitarist and I use this in place of software or a drum machine to get drum sounds on my home recordings. It's brilliant in that you can build up a ton of actual drumming skills while playing it, and it's incredibly easy to record with compared to an acoustic kit. It can also be extremely quiet (can play with headphones) which is a really nice feature. It helps that I am not a drumming looking for massive expressiveness... I am a guitarist looking for basic, solid drum rhythms on standard rock tunes.
Style of Music: rock and pop
