Needs only individual pad volume
4 Star Review   By Mike on Adorama - Oct 22, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

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.

Perfect Mini Drumset
5 Star Review   By Steve on Adorama - May 4, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

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 p

5 Star Review     

Strengths: Plug into the PA & it sounds better than a $5000.00 set of drums.

I gig with this unit every week, the drums sound like thunder, the drums with mikes do not sound as good as this unit. I can play small jobs and still have deep sounds, clear cymbals. Buy the better foot pedals and you are gig ready.

sounds better than it looks
4 Star Review   By member clamrade - Mar 8, 2009   

Strengths: portability

Weakness: limited expandability

I've picked up drum sticks after a decade of lull. Now with a family and all, I couldn't effectively deal with the space or the noise of a drum set. So, a small electronic drum set like this DD65 was a necessary compromise. As you can tell, I was skeptical at first. After living with it for a couple of months, I am very satisfied with the portability and even the sound. Of course, the built-in amp/speakers are too weak, but it sounds pretty nice with a good external amp. A good set of headphones will also bring out good sounds. Of course, its real appeal is the portability. As you can imagine, it's so easy to take it with you anywhere. However, I recommend buy the kick drum pedal KP65. It's not possible to play a serious bass drum beat on the included foot pedal. Unfortunately, this adds some bulk. Also, buy the power adapter PA150. Cons are that it has inputs for no external pads. The eight built-in pads are barely enough. The pads are small, and they are sensitive only near the very center. You can assign custom sounds to each pad, but you can't adjust the sensitivity of each pad. It takes a while to get used to this set. All in all, I have no regrets buying this set. It's fun!!!

4 Star Review   By member fjsingel - Dec 30, 2007   

Strengths: Many options, easy to use

Weakness: Not very loud, should come with wall adapter

I got this set for my 14-year old that was interested in drumming. He wanted to get a whole set, but I want to make sure he is interested. He has been playing with the set since we got it. We have just started using the set, but here is what I know so far: The sweet spots on the pads are not as big as the pads. You have to hit pretty-much in the middle to get sound. Make sure you buy the wall adapter. I made my own, but I would not recommend this for everyone.
