Drumming is something that has been part of human nature for thousands of years as a means of communication that has developed into something that makes us want to dance. Everyone has a drummer inside them waiting to get out but such an instrument can be very unpractical due to the noise and space requirements that are associated with kits. The Yamaha DD-75 Compact Digital Drum Machine changes everything thanks to its compact size, ability to be silent and the vast amounts of sounds an kits that are built-into it. Time to stop dreaming and start drumming.
Develop your style
Whether you're an aspiring Buddy Rich, Sheila E. or Joey Jordison the DD-75 has a huge array of kits for you to play with. Everything from hand percussion through to thumping electronic kits through to crisp studio acoustic kits and more are built-in. You can even play the kits using sticks or hand to help develop the playing technique that you wish to excel in.
Further to this, the DD-75 Digital Drum Machine comes with 105 built-in backing tracks that you can jam along with to develop your tempo and velocity control to improve accuracy and consistent performance. Once you're feeling adventurous you can even connect your smartphone or other music source to play along with your favourite tunes!
The Yamaha DD-75 features 8 touch-sensitive pads that are laid out to mimic the natural positioning of the snare, toms and cymbals of a kit. For the feet, the DD-75 comes with a couple of pedals for kick drum and hi-hat control. This culminates in getting the full kit experience without the weight and space of a full size digital or acoustic kit.
As soon as you mention drums to most non-drummer people, the first thing they think of is the ear-splitting noise that can occur during long practice sessions. Even though the DD-75 does have a built-in speaker system you can connect any headphones and play your heart out in near-total silence! Forget the limitations of having to get time booked in the practice studio, simply set-up, plug-in and play!
The Yamaha DD-75 Compact Digital Drum Machine takes the shackles of practice limitation away leaving you to practice and perform as often as you wish. Whatever your skill level from total beginner to advanced, the DD-75 is sure to help boost your technique and ensures you have fun whilst doing so.
