Bought this as a present for a 5 year old that wanted a drum set. Didn't want a cheap toy, so I considered this for a little more money. Turned out to be a great fit. Many drum set settiings plus a valuable volume control. This came with a set of drum sticks and a power adapter. It also lasts a long time on a set of batteries. This review is from the perspective of a parent that bought this more as a toy for a child rahther than a serious musician.

I got this for my brother for Christmas since he couldn't bring his real drum kit to his new dorm, but... of course... had to test it out myself! I'm not a percussionist, but wow did I have fun. The sound quality is great. A few snares sound a little tinny, but there are so many options that you can switch those out for better sounding ones. You can custom set up the kit or use their configurations. Volume levels are a good range (I will buy headphones to go with this too) It has a good bass beat and tom sound - which is admirable in a machine this size. It fits on your lap. The drum pads are not too small. I lost myself a bit to the rhythm and played without looking and never hit the plastic once (and I remind you, I'm not into drums... I only ever played woodwinds). It comes with a pair of drum sticks - solid wood and standard. It also comes with an AC adaptor which I think is invaluable. I can't imagine the battery time being very long with this as it will hardly ever be switched off once my brother gets it.

This thing is ideal. I run the YDD40 into my Tascam cassette 4-track (out through the 1/4" headphone jack), and I gotta say--when EQ'd properly, this device approximates the sound of a mic'd up drum kit surprisingly well. It's extremely easy to use, is low-noise, and has a nice (albeit limited) variety of drum sounds. It's a basic, compact piece of gear, and has proven over time to be a total keeper.

This drum set is unbelievable! Sounds great and I like the variety of drum voices offered for the pads. The pads are a little small to get around, but with practice it becomes a little easier to hit them.

Ordered this for my child who loves music and dance. I was expecting a simple drum machine with mediocre sound and not much more. What I ended up with is a great musical instrument with a nice clean sound and more functions that I would have imagined. It does have it's limitations as you can't get too aggressive because the simulations can't keep up if your beats per/second get too fast to handle. Drum sounds are pretty good for being a digital reproduction. It doesn't sound exactly like real percussion at times, but that was to be expected. Volume levels are good. You can plug in your tablet or mp3 device and play along. You can plug in headphones or send the signal to an amp or other outside monitors.

I enjoyed this so much that I ordered the foot pedal for about $17 (including tax and shipping) and the bass drum application is way cool. So many rhythms included to play along and a bunch of non drum sounds. You can customize the drum pad and sounds to fit your liking. Comes with REAL drum sticks and the A/C adapter to plug in to the wall.

I play guitar, but this unit has brought out a real interest in percussion in me. Remember, this is pretty much the least expensive unit that Yamaha offered and it rocks for the money. I have a Yamaha guitar (and a Strat) but owning other Yamaha electronics as well has never been a disappointment.

I have seen a lot of negative reviews on this product, but it seems they are complaints about it not sounding, feeling or being the same as a real drum kit?? Well, it isn't a real drum kit! If you want a real drum kit, buy a real drum kit. However, this will teach you the basics of percussion, keeping in time and carrying a beat. Many times the problem isn't with the instrument, it's the person playing the instrument.

Great drum kit! Considering the size and portablilty, I found the voice options and overall sound quality to be impressive. The unit itself is well made and very easy to use.

I got her this instead and she loved it. Best feature - headphone socket - seriously worth it's weight in gold!

Has all different rhythm sections, change the drum sounds to different types of drums or even to some really whacky animal sounds which my daughter thought was awesome.

Has a volume control and we're working it on batteries all the time and it's doing fine - not using too many up at all! This means it is totally portable and she can carry the drum set anywhere in the house - basement being the preferred room for me.

It's not overly heavy, is typical Yamaha quality and will last her a long time. Other kids who come over love to play with it too - all ages, and adults too!
