This DD-50 Digi-drums provides 7 pads (4 larger, 3 smaller), 2 pedals (hi-hat open/close, kick). The onboard sequencer is very good. It is capable of handling very fast triplets that some of my other keyboard sequencers cannot handle.

Much fun - and now a lot of my professional musician friends like the sequences and ask me if I used more expensive gear like Rolands V-Drums.

Comments About the Sounds:
Yamaha finally got this one right in terms of drum sounds. On several other pieced of Yamaha gear the drum sounds have been thin at best. These are rich and deep. Very realistic.

(Thanks to Dwane Christopher Woodard for this info.)
