Your First Digital Drum Kit?

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.

"Great Little Set of Drums"
Overall: The DD65 is perfect for what I use it for. As a hobby, I use looping software to create songs that I drum to. I have a small house with three kids and I had been using similar drum sets for a long time for space/volume reasons. The set that I had for the past fifteen years finally died (it was a pad-set that needed an external sound module) and I wanted something that had sounds in it. This way, I could minimize the amount of programming I had to do. As soon as I plugged this in, I was off and running. I was able to create three of my own custom kits and record into my computer. The pad set up is pretty natural for a drummer and the pads themselves have a similar bounce to a practice pad. The biggest issue is that the pedals that come with it are really just buttons and difficult to use. Luckily, I had traditional electronic pedals from my old digital drum set that I use instead. If I didn't, I would have upgraded at some point. The built in speakers are not loud enough to cover the "tapping" of the sticks on the pads, so I don't use them. I have a small pair of powered studio speakers and headphones, both of which provide plenty of volume to show off the surprisingly good sound quality found inside the unit.

"THE BEST SO FAR!"
Sound: WHAT MORE CAN YOU SAY, IT ROCKS Feature: LOTS OF Samples, lots of kits unlimited programing. Ease of Use: every thing's where it's supposed to be as the point of view from a real drummer' Quality: Better than the simmons kit indentations on the underside to accommodate a regular snare drum stand a plus. Value: A screamin deal for the tubs your getting' Manufacturer Support: I shot an email to yamaha regarding the hi- hat midi message problem, they requested me to take it to my nearest yamaha service center( one that repairs pro audio) and they will install a free hardware update. My service center accepted it, they will contact yamaha. we'll see how that turns out. The Wow Factor: The design is perfect ,however the pedals are a little strange acting and will take a little more practice to master. other than that I seem to get pretty used to them. the pads are more sensitive than most I'v played which means I don't need ultra-heavy drumsticks smashing them to hear sound, There great! Overall: I really like them (other than having to order the adapter separate) when the midi problem is fixed they will be unstoppable this is the only "all in one" drum pad set that's worth a damn. This comes from a drummer with 15 yrs. + experience.
