Donner is recently known for their budget electronic kits. They put out some pretty affordable stuff and drummers on a budget find their gear useful to varying degrees.

They have recently released a super-compact, roll-up electronic drum pad – the DED-20. This pad is small and can be rolled up and put in a backpack. It also has a built-in speaker.

From the press release:

The DED-20’s two stereo speakers deliver powerful, impactful sound that reach the volume level of an electric drum kit and can be adjusted to nine different volume levels, so drummers can easily adjust accordingly to their current volume setting.

Crafted from high-quality, soft silicone, players can roll up the pad and carry it with them in a backpack to practice wherever, whenever. The soft silicone construction also reduces noise when drumming. For even quieter practice, the DED-20 supports a 3.5-mm headphone output, so players can practice with headphones.

This new drum pad is most likely a good option for kids who are interested in drumming. It’s ideal for parents who don’t want to spend a lot of money to see if their kids like playing drums. A low risk investment type of thing.
