For a black friday special--- that I purchased as a toy--- these are much better than expected. EZ--- assembly and set up so anyone can go and have fun. The pedals are not made for speed and the pads are not very adjustable-- but for the price this is a great item-- especially for kids.

I bought this to get used to smaller drum sets and to have a smaller, less crowded setup. The biggest problems I have with it is the kick hammer and the sensitivity. The hammer didn't fit out of the box. I had to wrap it in tape to wedge it in the slot to keep it from falling out. Not a huge problem, but kind of annoying. As for the sensitivity, that's a bit bigger of a problem. There's a fairly poor threshold for impact to make any sound. You have to hit harder than you would think in order for it to make the lowest sound. It also can't seem to process to many hits fast. I'd say the fastest it could process is around 16th notes @ 120bpm. The only other problem I have with it is a lack of native amp output support. I've been finding myself having to use my computer speakers to get actual sound if I don't want to use headphones. I haven't tried using the midi features yet, but I imagine I'd still run into the same sensitivity issues with that.

Besides that, it was very easy to set up, fairly decent build quality for the price, and a good size.

Overall, I would recommend spending an extra little bit of money and get a set without the sensitivity issues, and hopefully it would have native amp output.

    Comments about Simmons SD100KIT Compact 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

    I bought this as an experiment, I've never been very into electric drums at all. I wanted something to toy with that wouldn't drive the household crazy and this little kit is perfect for that application. My major disappointment is that you can't really get a tight roll out of this any of the pads. Aside from that it's great for toying around and I also put my kids on it so they can have some casual time on a drum kit without worrying over them breaking heads or having to listen to my son play a beat fit for an early 90s MTV hip hop video.

    Stopped Working After 4 Months

    By Heather

    from Pittsburgh, PA

    Comments about Simmons SD100KIT Compact 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

    Purchased this item for my son for Christmas. Fast forward to April- four months later, the bass drum stopped working...and within a week, the rest of the drum pads and cymbals went also. Contacted Simmons first, and I was out of the 90 day warranty. They told me to contact Musician's Friend. Apparently, I did not buy the Gold Coverage Warranty, and so there was nothing they could do for me. Bottom line: BUY THE WARRANTY! I'm out a lot of money for just 4 months of use! Musician's Friend gave me a small credit on my account for the inconvenience, but I spent a lot more than that on the set!

    This allows us to have a live drummer in our small rehearsal room. Now we can get away from the click tracks on our guitar effects.

      Comments about Simmons SD100KIT Compact 5-Piece Electronic Drum Set:

      Great price for a decent electronic kit. The sound is pretty good, and you can customize each kit. The snare isn't very responsive though, and the electronics aren't quick enough to pick up rolls. It comes with a set of sticks which is nice.

      Curiously, the output is only 1/8 in. I would expect a 1/4 and/or XLR, so you'll need an adapter if you plan on using it for anything other than your own practice.

          I bought this to use on my personal recordings. I'm not a drummer but a guitarist so I just wanted something easy to use to add percussion. Our regular drummer who has been purely a acoustic player loved these. The only complaint is the snare isn't as sensitive as a real one but it's not that much worse.
