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.

I am using this as a drum amp for a set of electronic drums for practice. Nice sub-woofer for a good kick drum sound. I am also very pleased with the cymbal sound reproduction. However, there is a little tinny-ness to the other sounds. It has some nice features. Ability to adjust knobs with a drumstick is nice, and it's easy to add a music source for practice with a track or just having fun. It is VERY heavy, and the wedge shape makes it difficult to carry and move around. I have not used it as a monitor for stage performances, and I'm not sure I would. It certainly has enough volume to use in our practice/rehearsal room and be able to hold its own with other amplified instruments. I bought it as a SDOTD. I wouldn't recommend it at full price.

    Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

    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.

      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 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!
