Complete Kit

The DD420 has 3 toms and a snare drum plus a crash with choke, ride and hi-hat cymbals. It also includes a hi-hat controller pedal and a stealth style kick drum set up so you have everything you need to get going.

Authentic Features

The 420 features a crash pad with choke feature which means you can dampen the cymbal sound with your hand after playing - a technique often used by drummers with acoustic cymbals. This gives you a much greater range of cymbal sounds to play with and develops techniques that can be used with acoustic cymbals in the future. Established drummers will enjoy being able to use this familiar action on a digital kit.

Convient and Versatile Frame

Digital drums are compact, lightweight and convenient for smaller spaces. The 420 has a sturdy, versatile frame with an authentic lay-out that puts everything within comfortable reach.

Quiet and Responsive

The kick pedal controller is a lot quieter than a traditional drum pedal rebounding off a bass pad but gives a comparable action that allows the player to develop pedal skills. The headphone input means that it's no problem to practice early in the morning or late at night - just plug in and away you go without disturbing the neighbours.

The soft rubber pads are quiet and responsive giving you the feeling of the drums with much less noise. The tough plastic casing around the heads means they are durable enough to withstand hours of practice.

Wide Range of Sounds

The Gear4music 420 kit has 10 pre-set kits programmed into the module so you can quickly find a sound you like from rock and pop through to jazz and house. Experiment with creating your own kits using the 108 individual drum and percussion sounds or play along with the 40 drum patterns of varying difficulty.

Connect and Expand

The DD420 has a full range of connectivity options which add a whole host of extra options for expanding and upgrading this kit. The stereo ouput allows you to connect the drum kit to a monitor or amplifier for extra volume when playing live, whilst the aux in means you can connect an MP3 player and drum along to your favourite tracks.

USB and MIDI connections can connect this kit to a computer for recording, composition or use as a MIDI controller. These connections can give you access to a whole host of tuition software and DAW functionality.

User Friendly Controls

The digital drum kit is easy to use with simple, user friendly controls. Whether you're just getting started or simply don't want to waste time with overly complex selection menus and functions, the 420 is accessible to everyone. Mode, page, start/stop and selection buttons sit on the front of the drum module along with a volume knob, and the LCD screen displays all your chosen sounds and settings. A click feature is perfect to help players with timing or practice drills.
