OVERVIEW

Delivers the volume you need.

The Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor is designed to project the best sound quality possible for your electronic drum set. It is equipped with a 100-watt low frequency amp and 2 50-watt mid and high frequency amps. The high frequency amp ensures that even the highest cymbal crashes sound clear. The low-frequency amp has a 12 down-firing sub-woofer speaker and a slot port for bottom end projection. A ground lift eliminates the hum or buzz that can occur at certain locations. There are even soft touch knobs that can be quickly and easily adjusted with a drum stick. This monitor is protected by a durable carpet covering and a ribbed handle permits easy transportation from gig to gig. The Simmons DA200S has the large sound field needed to play your drums under the best sound conditions for you and for your audience.

Got this for my Roland TS-6S V-Tour kit a few years ago and its still running solid. It is built like a tank and weighs about as much. The sound is loud and clear - no rattle, nominal hiss at highest volume (all knobs at 11) - which is to be expected from any amp. The subwoofer really does shake the house. I transitioned this over to my acoustic kit a while ago. My Yamaha kit is mic'd into a mixer with leads running out to this amp. I was going to get a dedicated sub for my kit then figured I try this before spending a lot on just a sub. It's perfect as it offers the widest frequency response for any amp in this category -- or frankly any amp even close to this price range. It sounds good as a small PA too - I have run vocals through this, as well as my bass guitar. Yeah, it's not advertised for such use, but in the end, it's an amp with speakers and it sounds amazing no matter what you pump through it.
Solid build - really really solid.
Great price for the quality and diversity offered in this unit.

The amp seems to built of high quality, seems very heavy duty, Like the large rubber knobs with indentations to accommodate a drum stick when adjusting and is out of reach by hand. I thought the relatively large base speaker and multiple mid range and tweeter speakers along with EQ adjustments would produce a comparable or even better sound than my cheap headset. It doesn't. Maybe as I continue working with it at different volume and EQ levels the sound will improve. We'll see.

      Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

      Drums are tough to reproduce electronically due to the wide frequency and dynamic range, but this heavy (50+ lbs) amplifier does the trick nicely. The massive subwoofer provides the solid kick needed to replace a good acoustic bass drum, while the mid-range speakers and tweeters give snares and cymbals excellent clarity. With enough power to compete with an acoustic set, this amp will make sure you're heard until your band gets to the point that you're using the PA system anyways. Just be careful picking it up!

          Arrived damaged during shipment, only a bent grill, which is surprising since the box was nearly destroyed. I'd rather fix it myself than return it for a replacement. Not Musician's Friend's fault.

                Just got this drum monitor and IM IMPRESSED!
                Not only does it sound great, easy to use, solid build with lots of plug in options, headphones extra speakers MP3 players etc etc but it looks cooool.
                Turned up it will shake the whole house, in fact I've only had it turned up halfway and it rocks great quality.
                Believe me you won't go wrong buying this.

                I have owned this amp for 5 years now. It's great for practice and live shows. I run a monitor line to aux input, so I can control my own mix volume. Killer tone and projection. You could knock down the back wall in most rooms with the volume this amp is capable of. I usually play about 1/2 way to keep from killing my bandmates. Line outs give the soundman full control of my house mix volume. Great full range sound. For the money,you won't find a better sounding, more powerful amp. I also own the DA50. It's ok for practice,but lacks the aux in and line out features that make the DA200 so versatile.

                  I bought this use on stage with electronic drums as a stage monitor. It works very well so the other musicians can hear what I am playing. I also have it hooked up to the PA to put the sound out front. I was surprised by how easy it was to set up and use. The sound on stage is great and can be adjusted without changing the sound or volume out front. Also the line out to the PA has it's own volume control. The only down side is that it is heavy to carry.
