Simmons

Delivers the volume you need.

The Simmons DA200S houses a 100-watt low-frequency amp with two 50-watt mid- and high-frequency amps. The low-frequency amp powers a heavy-duty 12" down-firing sub-woofer speaker and a specially designed slot port for bottom-end projection. Left and right mid- and high-frequency amps drive 2-6-1/2" mid-range speakers and 2-1/2" high-frequency tweeters.

The DA200S maintains the integrity of the stereo drum signal from input to speakers (including line outs and extension speaker jacks). This provides a broad stereo field that positions your drums at their correct sonic locations, providing a realistic audio experience for you and your audience, whether you're in the studio or playing live.

    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.

    I bought one of these back in December. I play Zendrum Live, which is still electronic drums since I am using a sound module. I was using a Roland PM-10, and it was working fine, but it just wasn't powerful enough for some stage situations, so I bought this one. Within the first week, I heard a nasty buzzing noise from it, along with really bad crackling noises from the volume controls for the speaker outputs on the back. Thankfully, Guitar Center replaced it. Now, the replacement is showing signs of the same buzzing noise but only on the right channel. So, after speaking with Guitar Center, I was told to call Simmons. Simmons said they will call Guitar Center and they will again, replace it for me. So, 3rd time is the charm? Stay Tuned. In the mean time, my little Roland PM-10 is still going strong as it can, working great as ever. And that one I found on Ebay 3 years ago. I'm tempted to bring this one back and trade it in for the larger Roland PM-30. Simmons, This is your last chance!

      Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

      I'm rather new to electronic drums, but I recently got a yamaha dtx532k drum set and it sounds great with this amp. I love separate adjustment for the sub. I plan on using the amp for jamming and I could easily see using it for small restaurant type gigs. It would definitely handle smaller venues. While I always use an acoustic kit for gigs, this amp would easily allow the use of an e kit. The only thing that is bad about it is the weight; it's heavy. That just means it's sturdy and of high quality though.

        I'm pretty impressed with this amp. Gets VERY loud. More than enough for practice or jamming with friends. I thought I would need 2 for the whole stereo effect but I just put this one behind me, and it's more than enough. Subwoofer puts out decent thump. Overall very good deal for the money!!

              I have been a "pro" award-winning keyboardist for 4 decades (yup - that old) and over the last 10 years, have been buying, trying and selling all sorts of amps for my keyboard rig (featured in Electronic Musician Mag 2/12). Traynor, Motion Sound, QSC - almost too many to admit too and way too much money spent. Looking for an amp - a stereo setup live - that sounds as close to my studio set-up that wouldn't break the bank or my back and I have to say: this Simmons DA200s does EVERYTHING I ask of it!. Real stereo speaker config that reproduces the pianos, organ clones, synths, ever sound I've put through it to date. Still a tad heavy, it's compact footprint and plenty of power makes it a win-win for me whether I'm pushing my complete multi-keyboard, Mac sequenced show or just a simple NORD 1 board "acoustic" show: this is what I've been looking for. YMMV but for this "classic" rocker, I'm done shopping. www.sweetcrystal.com

                This amp is LOUD and sounds great. At 50% volume it was easily loud enough for a musical theatre gig in a 500-seat hall. So plenty of headroom for louder gigs or bigger venues. The multiple inputs, outputs, and onboard mixer make it very versatile, too.

                        I got the 200S to use with my old Roland TD-3 kit in my cramped, converted bedroom studio/practice space. Our drummer loves using my edrums and not having to bring his acoustic kit.

                        My impression is that the Simmons accurately reproduces whatever signal it amplifies, so get a good brain. It is so nice to rehearse with drums that don't overwhelm and everybody leaves practice without hearing damage. No volume wars!

                          New to electric drums, old to real ones, the weak link is now my kit, not this amp. It's only going to be used for practice but has to fill a biggish (30'x20') room and keep up with a git and bass. It more than keeps up.
