Needs a firmware update for Hi-Hat!!!

Mr. Drummer, Yamaha
6 April 2014
  • Summary: I use this kit in my home studio. I would like to use it with some of my drum software but the Hi-Hat does not trigger the midi properly. For this reason I would not recommend this unit if you are trying to use it as a midi controller. Yamaha!!!!! Please create a firmware update for this unit!!!!
  • Cons: Midi Problems

Needs only individual pad volume

Mike, Yamaha
22 October 2013
  • Summary: This is an excellent unit with the potential - in good hands - of providing a reasonable alternative to musicians playing in small venues or with limited space. What handicaps this unit is that within a kit, and aside of the overall system sensitivity, there is no way to control individual pad...
  • Pros: Great Sound, Versatile

Perfect Mini Drumset

Steve, Yamaha
4 May 2013
  • Summary: The DD65 is perfect for what I use it for. As a hobby, I use looping software to create songs that I lay live drum tracks to. I have a small house and have been using similar drum sets for a long time for space/volume reasons.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use

Portable and nice sounds but pricey

  • Excerpt: It's Yamaha so it's good sounding drum beats. This is really nice to have in small singing gigs because it is very portable. I just thought that it is expensive for the price. It might suit your needs but not for some.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Pricey / Poor Value

Something's missing?

  • Excerpt: It does not have volume adjustment for each midi voice. Bass drum is too loud but the close and open High Hat, well, can't be heard. Also when you strike a pad you can hear the sound of the other pad.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Limited Sound Selection, Unresponsive Pads
