Comments about Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad:

I hooked up the Simmons SD1 to an old home stereo phono input via RCA adapter cables. It sounds awesome! It is to easy to use right out of the box. You don't even need to read the directions it is that intuitive and it has more capabilities then you'd expect. I bought it maily because I wanted a nice sounding, simple to understand, and loud metronome to practice my drums and guitar with.... and for the nominal price they throw in the AC adapter, headphones, 2 foot pedals and even drum sticks! I just bought a Wah pedal for the same money and they didn't even include the battery and I had to order a AC adapter seperate. I looked all over the internet to find a product like this and mostly all's I found were expensive and complicated drum machines or cheap beaping metromomes that you can't amp up. This is the only thing of it's kind I could find in this price range or a lot higher and I love it.

Comments about Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad:

Obviously Simmons is trying to make a come-back in the electronic drum market. The price-point on this pad is very favorable. It has a very extensive variety of practice patterns, many of which I haven`t yet tapped into. I just picked it up on the way to a major show. I found it very handy for warming up before facing down a crowd of 4000+. It has a lot of rudiment patterns to get you in shape. The foot pedals are handy, but maybe not as much as you might think. The feel and response take a lot of getting used to, so I used it for hand chop building instead. If you are looking for a lot of great sounds, forget it. They are OK but very limited. It meets and exceeds my expectations as a warm-up and chop building device. A suggestion for Simmons would be to offer a bracket for mounting on a variety of stands. I engineered my own out of spare parts when I got home. It would also be nice to have more sounds to make it more desirable as an electronic supplement to my acoustic kit. Overall, I doubt any other company can beat the variety of practice exercises this offers for the money. I recommend it.
