An ideal first kit for the beginning drummer, the Yamaha DD-65 digital drum kit provides all the pads, pedals, and sounds needed to whet your drum appetite and keep you coming back for more. Affordable and easy to play, the DD-65 packs a wealth of onboard drum kits, voices, phrases, and songs for on-the-fly jamming and practicing, as well as a handy Aux input for connecting a media player and playing along with your favorite music. It takes time to master any instrument, and for that reason, your housemates and neighbors will be grateful for the digital drum kit's headphone jack, which you can use for quiet practicing at home. Yamaha's DD-65 is the perfect no-nonsense kit for developing your chops.
Digital Drums with an Acoustic Feel
Express yourself with the DD-65's eight touch-sensitive drum pads laid out in an intuitive, acoustic kit-like spread. After you've mastered your basic playing skills on this digital drum kit, it's a cakewalk to transition to a traditional kit. Two foot pedals (included) help you with hand/foot coordination, making you feel like you're playing an acoustic drum kit rather than a digital one. A simple LED display and a selection of essential buttons are placed front and center for easy parameter changes during a playing session.
