Total portability and great drum sounds.

The drummer-friendly and stylish design of the Yamaha DD-65 drum machine marks a transition to a more professional and versatile digital-drumming instrument.

It features an aux in jack that lets you connect an MP3 player and play along with your favorite music, or load MIDI songs from the internet into the internal Flash ROM memory and play along. Stereo-sampled voices, a wide variety of percussion sounds from all over the world, a bass boost speaker system, and digital stereo processing give the Yamaha DD-65 an irresistible, thundering beat.

The drum machine's control panel includes intuitive features that are easy to operate. For example, select the Hand Percussion mode and the digital drum kit automatically switches to percussion voices like congas and bongos. With its powerful features, this drum machine is no toy.

Operates on six "C"-size batteries or Yamaha PA150 or PA5D power adapter. See survival kit C (#701588)

  • No Power card is a DEAL BREAKER !!!

    As reviewed by Katie Dummermuth on 1/6/2012

    Great quality Yamaha product but the fact that it doesn't come with a power cord is a marketing blunder. I will never ever buy a Yamaha product again if it doesn't come with a power cord. Not to mention the fact that it takes an hour of searching to find the recommended power cord on-line for a rediculus price. I also went to several stores without any luck to look for an equvilant cord including Radio Shack, Best Buy and several other music stores. As far as the Drum machine, I would prefer a better style of foot pedal, better drum sticks, and finally, more high hat and base sound options.

  • Great for Non-Drummers

    As reviewed by A Guitar Guy on 4/2/2010

    If you are looking for a unit to supplement drum tracks this is an outstanding unit. I use it with EzDrummer and it works great with the BFD2 Demo. The feel and sensitivity are great and the unit seems very well made. It does not have the bells and whistles of a full electronic kit, but if you are a non-drummer, you probably don't need all of this anyway. The kick pedal is not very good, and should probably be replaced if you want to record a kick track, but the unit is great overall.
