OVERVIEW

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.

FEATURES General features
  • Soft touch knobs (adjustable with your drum stick)
  • Ribbed handle for easy transport
  • Protective, long-lasting carpet covering
  • High-frequency tweeters for cymbal clarity
  • Heavy-duty midrange speakers for punchy mid-frequency response
  • Heavy-Duty 12" Down-firing sub-woofer for enhanced bass response (internal)
  • Heavyweight steel grille
  • Slot-port for enhanced cabinet with efficiency and bottom-end projection
Front panel features
  • Drum Inputs: 1/4" input jacks (left and right)
  • Aux Input: 1/4" stereo jack used for connecting any pre-EQ source such as a click track, additional digital instruments, devices, drum pad MPC machines, etc.
  • Drum Volume to control the volume level of the Drum Inputs to the power amplifier
  • Aux Volume to control the volume level of the Aux Input
  • Equalization section with low, mid, and high knobs to control the overall tone
  • Sub controls the volume of the low frequency sub-woofer
  • Master: This controls the overall volume of the amplifier
  • Line In: 1/8" stereo line input which bypasses the EQ tone controls and feeds straight into the power amplifier, perfect for using CD or MP3 players to play along with
  • Headphone Jack: 1/8" stereo output jack which combines all inputs from your drums, Aux Input, and Line In for monitoring your drums during live performances
Back panel features:
  • Left and Right Line Outs: balanced XLR Line Outs provide quiet, noise-free signal flow through a standard mic cable or snake to a recording or live console
  • Volume Control for Line Outs: completely independent from the Master volume on the front panel, allowing you to set your feed level to a mixing console
  • Ground Lift: to eliminate hum or buzz that may exist if there is a ground loop created between any stage gear and the PA system

This a premium sound system for electronic drums. Order today with the assurance of our dual 45-day guarantees.

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:

    Purchased this after reading other reviews, and snapping up during a sale. This monitor is made for drummers!. Using it with my new portable Roland TD-4KP V-Drums and it sounds TERRIFIC, even with all levels flat. I love the fact you can adjust the dials with your drum sticks. Pretty small size for an amp with such a great sound - think it has to do with the way the subwoofer is built in at the bottom. You can feel air rushing out the top lip when you use the kick.

    Note however that this amp is HEAVY. At this point in life, my goal is "less schlepping". The V-Drums greatly assist, but I'll need to get wheels under this amp soon. A friend suggests to drill through and bolt them from the inside, but I'm not sure what that might do to the sound. Anyone try this?

    I've tried my V-Drumswith other monitors, but so far this is the most compact and the best sound yet! The heaviness is necessary to get the great sound -- I'll put up with it.

      Do your research & you won't find a better more powerful electronic drum amp around. It's very versatile with it's many adjustments and line outs. Complements my Simmons SD1500 kit beautifully. You can fill it in your chest, It's a Mother Thumper. Two great companies, Simmons & MusiciansFriend!

        Great Drum monitor for the price. It sounds much better than the EV wedge monitor (12") I was using before for drums. Also, I love that the knobs have an indentation, so you can turn them with the tip of your drumstick.

            Comments about Simmons DA200S Electronic Drum Set Monitor:

            I got this to use with a Roland TD-11 electonic drum kit, as I was tired of getting a sound not so clear through a bass amp. This definitely did the trick, as it gets a clear representation of the highs and also has nice low end and gets as loud as I'd ever need it. However, that was only part of the fun. Since it has stereo inputs for the drums, I was able to also use it as a speaker for my Boss GT100 guitar effects pedal, allowing me to no longer use a small practice amp for that. It comes out straight forward, as it does at my church when I run out of the pedal to a PA. Cool that it takes stereo input for that. The other thing I tried was plugging an acoustic guitar straight into one of the drum inputs and then running a mic through a balanced to un-balanced converter, through an analog delay guitar pedal, and then into the Aux input. That allowed me to play and sing with surprising clarity. Such a set-up would be perfect for a coffee shop gig (especially if you had a vocal specific pedal to go through). Just so many uses for this thing, it's amazing for the price.
