Needs only individual pad volume

Adorama
22 October 2013
  • Excerpt: 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 volume. The addition of that feature alone would elevate this unit to a whole new level and make it a real useful instrument.
  • Pros: Great Sound, Versatile

Perfect Mini Drumset

Adorama
4 May 2013
  • Excerpt: 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. 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.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use

Fantastic Mini Digital Drumset

2 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The Yamaha DD65 is perfect for what I use it for. As a hobby, I use looping software to create songs that I drum to and record for my own amusement. I have been using similar - sized digital drum sets for a long time, due to space/volume reasons. The ones 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.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Midi Capable
  • Cons: Foot Pedals, Onboard Speakers

"Great Little Set of Drums"

Portable and nice sounds but pricey

muzik, B&H Photo

  • 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. So investing at this price level will give you seconds thoughts whether it's worth or not. The price just doesn't seem to be comparable with other electronic enabled instruments. For a hundred bucks more,you can get a bigger electronic drum kit.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Pricey / Poor Value

Something's missing?

Ben, B&H Photo
20 August 2012
  • 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
