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!

    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.

      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.

                  Well you had better have long legs to get to the pedals. I used a PDP pedal to trigger the kick. Moved iy in to a better position, more under my foot than stretched out to the right side. Also mounted the hat cymbal on it's own stand to get it out to the left. All in all it sounds pretty good. Wait 'till goes on sale. you will be happier!

                    I got this little kit to use for quieter practice and triggering MIDI sounds on the PC. It works really well for the money. The pads do have adjustable sensitivity and that works well enough. The hat hit controller works well with the built in sounds but takes some tweaking to get working exactly right with a MIDI connected VST. It can be made to work. I had mine set up and running samples from my DAW in less than an hour. I'm a computer tech though so the software setup was pretty simple for someone like me but shouldn't be too bad for anyone. Steven Slate Drums Platinum has a map for Yamaha DTX-500 and that works fine with this set as a starting point if you are using SSD4 like me with this like I am. The snare doesn't trigger quick enough for some things but mostly it's OK for rock and metal stuff. Country shuffle beats and some jazz might be a bit trickier.

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

                    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.

                      Our son loves this drum set! It was a great Christmas gift! It sounds great when listening through headphones. We will purchase a separate amplifier so that everyone can hear the sound (for using without headphones). When our son plays, you can hear semi loud sound from the pads but not as loud as you would a regular drum set. He loves it and we enjoy making drum beats as well!

                          We purchased this drum set for my dad for Christmas; he is an experienced drummer that used to play in bands and tour. He now lives in a place where he can't play his drum set loud, etc.. so we thought we try this one out and see what he thought. He absolutely loves this set! He can't stop talking about it! He said the sound is almost better then his actual drum set. We are very happy with our purchase!
