    Comments about Simmons SD550 Electronic Drum Kit with Mesh Pads:

    Guitar player, occasional drummer. 2 nice Pearl kits previously, first electronic kit. Seemed the best deal for the money...did not disappoint. A bit smaller than I expected, but worked for me as I have limited space. Easy to assemble, the 550 has great sound and a nice feel. I think the mesh heads help that, and the processor is easily navigated and instinctive. Wide variety of sounds and mods, but not too much. Packaging was well engineered and if the set is as good as the packaging and marketing it will be a winner. Time will tell.

        Frankly, the sounds are impressive, but the instrument let me down in responsiveness. I need to hear the sound when i play - not delayed a fraction of a beat.

        Great as a midi controller for home recording, not so much for the included sounds.
