Yamaha DD-Series Digital Drum DD-65

8-pad digital drum system

Eight touch response drum pads allow for expressive drumming with hands or drumsticks. Further, each pad is pressure sensitive, so that dynamics are preserved. Playing can be as expressive as on an acoustic instrument.

Hand percussion mode

Hand percussion responds to the pressure of hands in an accurate way that sounds exactly like the real thing.

Assignable percussion voices

A wide variety of percussion voices provide for a variety of percussion sounds, from rock to rap and beyond. The percussion voices can be assigned to each pad, to recreate classic drumkit sounds, or to create wild combinations of percussion instruments.

AUX IN Jack

This jack is for connection to an external audio source. You can play the instrument with backing music and accompaniment, like playing with a full band.

Recording your Performances

Up to five of your performances can be saved to this instrument, and these songs can be played in the same manner as the preset songs.

Headphone jack & drum sticks

A headphone jack for drumming in private, and included drumsticks make it easy to get started quickly.
