I currently gig with a Roland TD25 kit, so am familiar with the benefits and limitations of e-kits as a species. The Roland is a modest improvement over an acoustic kit in terms of stage footprint and physical volume of 'stuff', but it doesn't really offer any significant reduction, either in the number of cases I have to lug around, or in savings on set-up and strike time. Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years in the event of an item becoming faulty Yamaha is one of the best drum manufacturers in the world. Together with Roland, they have been producing cutting-edge technological solutions for drummers across the globe.

Batteries: Six 1.5 V "C" size alkaline (LR14), manganese (R14) or six 1.2 V "C" size Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (HR14) USER CUSTOM KITS: The process of building 'User Custom Kits' is a little clunky, involving a 'save as' method, from a selected pre-programmed kit. Far better to allow users to start with a blank 'User template' and select individual voices for each pad. Also, the facility to duplicate one User Kit to another User location would help speed up the construction of a library of user kits, since many kit elements would be the same across that library.

MIXING PAD LEVELS: There is no facility to mix the levels of individual Pads - for me this is a big downside. The whole idea of e-drums is to enable a player to create a kit sound that is 'mixed down', with all voices at the correct relative level, but the DD75 does not cater for this. The result is that you end up with a kit mix in which crash cymbals are typically way too loud and hi-hat way too quiet. The Yamaha DD75 is a step up from the DTX series. And if you compare its affordability and portability, it has everything useful from a drummer’s viewpoint. With this electronic kit, you are exposed to high-quality drums and percussion sounds from different parts of the world. You get a combination of voices, enabling you to create and produce your own music as you wish. I bought it to learn how to play the drums on a budget, without having much space available and without making too much noise and it works great for me in that regard.

SIZE: I think making the unit physically larger - even by 200mm in width and length - would make the act of playing far more pleasurable and less constricted, without compromising compactness. Sure, it's great discipline to play on such a compact unit, but it can feel a little like 'typing' a groove, rather than playing one.

In terms of the functionality and performance of the DD75 unit itself, I would say to Yamaha that there is a market out there for a 'Pro' version of this 'kit', which would allow more experienced drummers to better replicate the sound and feel of a 'real' kit. Its versatility is perhaps the most critical aspect. It lets users combine intuitive features with excellent-quality sound. These portable digital drum kits are so amazing that you’ll forget about the real acoustic drums once you have them. You can build custom kits arranged however you want and the pads are symmetrical so you could arrange a custom kit to have the snare & hats on the right instead of the left if that's what you prefer. For years they were focused on creating high-end professional electronic drum sets. The Yamaha DD75 is among the most affordable pads. These dd drums are not only accessible but very light in weight which makes you to carry them around easily. Customers who want to practice without getting in trouble with their neighbors will find this product particularly useful. And it is even better when you don’t have much room for a full kit.

In my experience, many people prefer the traditional touch and feel of a real acoustic drum set. And we can all agree nothing can compare to that feeling. As if that not enough, it comes with a highly responsive interface. Its sturdy construction will serve you for years. Even better, it comes with a headphone plugin port. This lets you create your own playing space, and no one will even know what you are playing. Once you plug in the headphones, the 75 electronic drum kit will work as a virtual noise-free drum kit. However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

If you are looking for short-term drumming practice, this is the tool you need. It is affordable, so you can’t feel bad about your money. In terms of playability, the velocity is a bit weird and the 2 pedals need some time to get use to it but it's achievable. I'm not a good drummer and as a beginner it satisfies me but it can be a bit frustrating if you'd want everything to work like a real drum set would.It is so small it takes up less space than a keyboard. Instead of carrying hundreds of equipment, you have one that has it all in one. If you want to play it somewhat like a conventional kit you need to buy a snare drum stand and mount it to that. It also works as a midi controller with a DAW and a plugin that allows you to assign cc to certain sounds (Steven Slate Drums for example), I didn't try this feature though, so it might be a mess to setup, like every midi I own. For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
