Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Its all plastic,but what isn't these days,but its a good hard quality plastic. As long as you don't totally abuse it I think it will last a good long time. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? This machine lets you change up the drum patterns and you can really make it sound just like a real drummer with a bit of practice. you can do numerous fills and shuffles and ghost notes. and when doing step recording you can choose the velocity of the bass notes and the length and just about anything else, and it sounds like a real bassist. Not like a machine. Sound How is the tone? The tone is adjustable and sounds great. Have no complaints. Appearance Appearance It looks good for plastic. It really doesn't look like plastic when looking at it from a few feet away. Value Was this item an overall good value? I'll tell you this, I was apprehensive about buying this because I kept seeing how hard it is to learn to use and If purchased should get the DVD. I didn't get it and just looked online for tips and found them and here I am a week later,after playing around with it and trial and error and I've got it down pat. Can do everything with it from creating patterns to piecing them together to make a song. Its all basically the same once you get the hang of patterns the rest is easy.
MUCH MORE THAN A DRUM MACHINE

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Excellent quality. No complaints. Sound How is the tone? It depends on how I program it. Value Was this item an overall good value? Considering the DR-880 has built-in COSM guitar and base amps and effects, it can emulate many different environments through the TSC function, it adds realism through the groove modify functions and it offers something for all levels whether it's sampling some ideas on the touch sensitive pads or programming a track note-by-note... it's well worth every penny of the nearly $500 price tag. It's labeled a drum machine, but it's clearly more than just a drum machine.
