Chris Patterson wrote his DD-10 review just hours before we found that Ian Watson's flat-mate had one buried under some other crap. It proved to be just the thing to complete the menagerie for an impropmtu in-car recording session by the legendary Radioactive Sparrow, who were half way through recording their 73rd album since 1980. The size of the built-in speakers, larger than average for a Yamaha DD, was a massive bonus, and Watson was able to weave manic, yet buoyant, rhythm-scapes over which Gage and Bargefoot could freely presbitate what may prove to be a classic. ("Can You Tell What It Is Yet, You Twat", by Radioactive Sparrow, will be released on Unsound Automatic, 28th January 2002). DD-10 is well worth the bucks, whatever you pay. The insane afro-beat stylings of many of the pre-sets are a particular treat. It's only rubbish if you're trying to make music that copies 'proper' bands/artistes, because you have neither gumption nor guts enough to be your straight-up self.

this mother cost me 100 pounds in about 1989, they saw me coming I guess, I gave it to my friend martin who had a go and insisted I take it straight back off him. mind,you can add and remove sounds on the fly which is useful and my YAMAHA RY10 wont let me do that. I like the shaker noise but otherwise,c'mon,this is awful, and ugly, and those doop doop noises, the white electric drum things, never let your friends here them or kiss them goodbye. Another reviewer said worth paying a tenner for, well,it could be an antique one day. you can jack your car up with it if someone nicks your whheel.

In the late 80ies a shop owner convinced me it was a better buy then a 808 because it "had preset sounds while 808 had none and had to be programmed". He was asking $200 for each of them I fell for his advice and took the DD-10. I sold it for $25 a couple of years back, while if I took the 808 I would get around $500 today.

I got one of these about 10 years ago - used it a couple of times then put the instrument back in its box, used the shoulder strap for a guitar that I borrowed, used the foot pedals as synth sustain pedals. The DD10 now lies underneath a pile of old records in the attic. Totally crap as a drum machine, highly useful as a shelf (only if left in its box!)
