Session Pro DD505

“Loads of bang for your buck”

Written on: 10/03/2012 by Guestzz123 (1 review written)

Session Pro DD505 I bought a well used set of these a few months ago on Ebay. When it arrived I found the condition was not a good as I had hoped, but after playing with it for a while this ceased to matter. I'm an old school 'real' kit player who hasn't played for far too many years, so 'rusty' doesn't scratch the surface. The good: The bounce from the snare is surprisingly good. Much better than the 70's practice pad I was expecting. The toms and cymbals are not quite as good as the snare… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/03/2011

I've had the Session Pro DD505 since Christmas. I've only just started playing drums and its been great to practice with. It is really good for someone just starting to play drums but the pads need to be cleaned often as dust gathers on it. Also it needs an amplifier or headphones to be able to play on it. Overall it is a great drum kit for beginners as it is quiet, and easy to practice and learn opn. Before I bought this drum kit I would have liked to have known that you would have needed an… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2010

Great Electronic Drumkit. I found that the frame is very sturdy and all fittings are good quality. Sound quality is super, has loads of preset kits to choose from and you are able to edit drumkits and create your own. Has play along tracks built in which is a good feature. You can also plug any Auxillary device in to play along to your favourite tracks off your iPod.
Great for any beginnner or for a Pro to use as a practice kit.

Written on: 18/08/2009

Session pro DD505 is great for a practice kit with decent kit sounds built in. In use the pads are really quiet and in the room are much quieter than the expensive MESH heads found on other kits, although not as sensitive. The module has all the usual features - aux-in to play along with say a CD. Midi out for triiggering sounds from a PC. I wouldnt really go outand play this kit live, but around the studio it is a useful and very usable edition. The 2009 Version has a larger base drum pad… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/05/2009 by bodydebit (1 review written)

I've had the Session Pro DD505 for about two months now. As a practise tool - brilliant. There are some actually surprisingly good sounds loaded onto this module, which is actually more intuitive to program than some I've used (I'm looking at you, Roland!) mainly thanks to the game-like layout of the various pads on the control console.

Everything about this kit is great (doubly so for it's price) with the following exceptions:

1. Though the pads feel very good, they aren't particularly… Read Full Review

The Session Pro DD505 is good for practice, lightweight, cheap, there is a stress point on the clamp, as you tighten it, it breaks and there doesn't seem to be anyone in the UK that stocks spare parts, as i found out, ive only had the kit over a yr, and can't use it. unless i cough up 20 dollars per clamp plus 20 dollars posting from the USA… Read Full Review

If I'm understanding the problem correctly, the clamps break. I have the DD506 which structurally is the same kit. Do you mean you cannot tighten the clamps, or do you mean the plastic has snapped?
<br/>If its the first, replace the nuts with standard 6mm nuts from say Homebase or B&Q. You may find the nuts difficult to remove from the plastic knob. Take out the bolt put this into the nut the wrong way around. Then with a pair of pliers pull out the old nut, push in a new one and Bob's your Uncle.
<br/>
<br/>If the plastic sections have broken maybe you would consider replacing them with another brand, say yamaha. True they are expensive &pound;25 from Drumshack.co.uk, but they would considerably more durable.
<br/>
<br/>Hope that's helpful

Written on: 08/10/2008 by whizzkid09 (3 reviews written)

The Session Pro DD505 is a very good drum kit which seems to be very strong and extremely well built. I have had one of these for about three months and has been fantastic so far. The 4 tom tom pads have a hard plastic rim so if you miss hit the pad then you will know with a hard "clack". The cymbal and high hat pads are full circles rather than the segments of pads that you get on other cheaper kits. The DD505 consists of:

A snare drum,
A high tom,
A mid tom,
A floor tom,
A high hat,
A crash… Read Full Review
