A new type of kit for a new type of drummer.
The Simmons SD2000 Mesh-Head Electronic Drum Kit is engineered as a sound design tool for today’s modern drummer, providing unprecedented creative control far beyond what traditional acoustic and electronic kits can offer. As an expressive musical instrument, it offers an unparalleled pallet of one-of-a-kind, signature sounds with incredible playability and on-the-fly control. The SD2000 delivers the cutting-edge looks, feel and sounds for the contemporary musician.
The SD2000 is the first Simmons kit to feature advanced, tension-able mesh pads with variable attack response technology for expressive performance and nuanced playability. Each SimHex® drum is fully adjustable to personal playing positions thanks to the revolutionary Spherical Isolation Mounting System™ (SIMS). The SD2000’s triple-zone SimHex mesh snare allows for even more creative triggering options, while the low-profile rubber pad rims provide a superior, natural playing angle.
The SD2000’s sound module has a large, full-color LCD screen, providing an intuitive portal into the Simmons Signature Sound Library and a variety of other best-in-class features. This expansive sound collection features a plethora of famous, recognizable vintage drum sets from decades past and as well as many contemporary kits. The entire library was captured with era-specific recording techniques for unsurpassed authenticity throughout. Additionally, many of the classic sounds from famous Simmons vintage gear was painstakingly recaptured for this series. More than just drum sounds, Simmons includes an enviable collection of world percussion, giving the SD2000 the largest selection of sounds in the electronic drum market. A built-in performance mixer allows players to control volume, EQ, pitch, shape and apply filters on the fly for outstanding sound sculpting in the moment.
Yet another breakthrough feature allows you to add any sound in the real world to your kit, creating and inputting a nearly limitless personal library of samples and soundscapes.

Comments about Simmons SD2000 Mesh-Head Electronic Kit:
I have not had the kit for long. I purchased it for our Church because of the probability more than anything else. I am the pastor/drum player/handyman/jack of all trades type of guy. I've played drums for about 50 years on and off, all acoustic kits, so the Simmons kit is a real departure from what I have played in the past. Do I like it? Yes I do, especially the mesh heads. For some one that uses these types of kits for the first time, be aware they take some setting up to get the sound you want. Once you get there, you will probably not change it much after that unless you do things I don't. I purchased the Simmons monitors as well (the big one with 3 speakers) and found that unlike an accoustic kit determining how much sound is out in front of the list is difficult. The speakers project out which is what speakers do, so I have to rely a lot on others to be able to gauge how much sound is being projected into the sanctuary. After years af the accoustic (Tama) kit a lot of people have said it sounds "electric", which is not so much that it does, but I suspect more because it's different. Changing from one type of kit to another after 50 years has been a challenge but not insurmountable. The feel is definitely different, and the setup isn't as "movable" as an accoustic kit. Everything is attached to rails and only has a limited amount of movement to get yourself set up behind the kit. Doable, but different. Definitely takes getting used to.

Comments about Simmons SD2000 Mesh-Head Electronic Kit:
This is a beautifully engineered kit with really solid pads and frame. Everything fits perfectly. Sounds great, with nice kits. Best feature is the wide rubber rims, which really are additional pads, so you can have your 3 toms plus any other 3 sounds like cowbell, other toms, etc. The brain has a fader for kit damping so if you want it to ring or just thud , you can.
My kit came without a kick mounting bar, and getting that solved was a hassle for sure, causing me to curse Simmons many times. But, do I love this kit? Absolutely. Would I give it up? Absolutely Not.
