These were awesome for about 60 days. Then I started to get double taps with my symbols. Ive changed all of my settings, from sensitivity to rejection with no luck. at this point, one of them barley works at all, and now a second pad only works about half the time. I've been in contact with Ddrum, and those are the only settings that can be adjusted to help with that problem. I havent heard back from them about warranty possibilities. There were other reviews saying that the symbols were problematic before i bought the set, but i figured they just had bad luck and a DDrum product would be better than the reviews were saying. THEY ARE NOT. Im as beginner as one can be, and play very lighlty with 7A sticks. They stopped working anyway. Now, even with heavy laminate 5B's, they wont pick up half of my strokes.
Went into GC when i heard ddrum was releasing a new product. Sadly, i was met by the Mededi DD505 released in 2004 with a ddrum logo on the side. This product is sold by simmons, Fame, Legacy, Black Mamba and anyone with a few bucks for a silkscreen. If anyone is familiar with ddrum, yamaha or roland trigger quality and/or sound quality, please do not expect that of this inexpensive product. This is only, and i repeat only, for a beginner who is looking to practice. Anyone who knows anything about edrums should steer clear. Please, this review is here only to help you save money, your time, and your expectations. If you want to get into edrums, grab an inexpensive yamaha or roland kit. This garbage is a sad excuse for a ddrum product. The pads are more closely related to frisbees than edrum pads, keep that in mind as well.
To start off with, I am very happy with this product, and just as happy with guitar center! I have been drumming on an acoustic set since I was about 16, but I moved to Boston a few years ago, and wasn't able to bring my real set due to size and obvious noise contraints. I have finally been able to make this purchase and couldn't be happier. First off, it's not a "real" drumset, and will never feel like one. It's an obvious step up from a rock band set, but it's not going to feel like drumheads, and you won't feel the impact from the cymbals... but you know that already. I think the sound is great, and it's pretty decently customizable. If you don't need all three toms, position one a little differently and make it a second crash cymbal; it's very easy and works great. The build quality is really solid. It's a mostly plastic set, but it's that great kind of plastic, not the chinsy kind. While you will play the electronic set differently, it feels as though it is able to take some punishment. I have mine set up to input an ipod into the auxiliary input, and headphones out, so I can easily play along with songs, while independently adjusting the volume of the music and of the drums. I'll be honest, when you have the volume equalized, I oftentimes can't tell if the drums are the ipod or me, that's how good the sound can be. Plus, the heads are pressure sensitive, so if you hit it softly, it will be quieter... that is absolutely necessary, and it works well. A few points (that are probably obvious to most): 1.) to plug most headphones in, you will need an adapter to take your 1/8" headphones to fit into the 1/4" input, same for the auxiliary jack. All the inputs and outputs are 1/4" 2.) make sure you have a piece of carpet or something underneath the set. I'm playing on hardwood, and haven't actually gotten my piece of carpet yet, and the kick and hi-hat pedals will slide around on you, and will transfer your force into noise in the floor, but that is a very simple fix. (that I have yet to do!!) The reason for only 4 stars and not 5? In some cases, while on a doublet or a triplet roll, it won't pick up every hit on the snare or hi-hat. It will get most, but there are a few times it will miss some, and that can be slightly bothersome. If you're a beginner, that probably won't be an issue in any way, and if you're not, it still isn't THAT big of a deal. Don't hesitate. If you're on the fence, buy it! Plus the red really does look pretty cool, if that matters to you! Elliot
These drums are sick!! Perfect for the price! The module is a little limeted but you can always get a nother one... The toms and everything else are really good tho!!!
Eh...these drums are ok at best. I would recommend getting a new module if you do choose to get the set since there is a serious delay as well as just poor response. The set itself is great and if space is an issue this is a great compact set. After playing, one can tell there is serious potential with a module that actually works and has at least decent preset sounds. I played my fair share of drums within the one week I been playing, but all jokes aside a baby could tell the sound is off.
