    Extended functions, more voices, and versatility that today's drummer demands.

    The Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Kit is the next step up from the popular SD5K, with the expanded functionality that will please drummers and complement any stage. The drum feel is incredibly life-like, with over 300 realistic sounds and an expressive hi-hat. The bass drum pad accommodates a double pedal. With a dual-zone snare pad, 20 preset kits and space for 30 user kits, the SD7K delivers state-of-the-art electronic sounds with USB connectivity at an unbeatable price.

    No matter what style you play, you owe it to yourself to explore the world of recording and performance possibilities that electronic percussion offers. The Simmons SD7K Drum Set has live, electronic pads and hand percussion options letting you add exotic sounds that would otherwise require a large and space-consuming collection of instruments. Drum giants like Vinnie Colaiuta and Josh Freese incorporate electronic drums into their live kits, giving them a far broader palette to work from. Plus, with many bands playing live to sequenced backgrounds, electronics are essential for triggering and interacting with your backing tracks. In the studio, the wide variety of sample libraries available make electronic drum sets more useful than ever. Just play the song, and use the SD7K kit's MIDI signal to trigger your choice of samples, and you'll have drum tracks that can be endlessly altered as you mix. Replace the snare, kick or toms, or combine multiple samples for a massively powerful wall of sound.

    Bass pedal sold separately.

    I bought this because I needed to practice. The materials arent the greatest. One of the tubes was damaged right out of the box. It took me a long time to assemble. After all the complaints, this set gets the job done. It is pretty quiet. The sounds don't have a lot of adjustments like the roland sound modules. The sounds are good enough for practice and jamming. pads have good feel. Hi-hat pedal action good. I like the bass drum trigger campared to a lot of other bass drum triggers I see for entry level e-drums. After 300 hours practicing, the cymbals are starting to come apart causing them to make a loud thud sound. I put some tape on them and it took care of it. I havent had any other issue yet. The songs onboard to jam with suck. The metrodome only has a handfull of time signatures. Overall I dig this because I was able to get a lot of practice where before because of the places I lived I couldn't. Also I am pretty sure this whole thing is going to fall apart within the next 6 months. I will just get a new one.

    As much as I hate reading negative reviews when searching for products, I would be down-right lying if I said I recommended this product.The high-hat pedal is extremely weak. Even at max volume, I can only hear the high-hat pedal when I'm not playing any of the other drums. In addition, the high-hat cymbal itself won't register anything more thatn 16th notes, and even those will take a prety decent whack of the pads.The rack that these drums come on is shoddy at best, and often wiggles when you play. Moving the set in one piece is nearly impossible, and reassembling the kit takes a very long time, regardles of how many times you've done it. Making it even harder is the fact that the included instruction manual doesn't have any information on setup, so you'll have to do it all by yourself. If you screw up when assembling the kit, you're going to need to take most of the kit apart in order to fix whatever mistake you made.The default volumes of the drum are quite lame, and you'll often find yourself changing the volume of the kit around A LOT. There are few voices for the ride that actually sound like a real ride cymbal, and the volume of the crash cymbal isn't very consistent, so anytime you try to do a roll on the cradh cymbal, half the beats will be quieter than the others.All-in-all, this is not a very impressive kit, and really isn't the best practice tool. I would recommend something a little more expensive, such as a Yamaha DTXplorer or an Alesis DM5 Pro kit.

    Pretty good

    By T.E.O. Drummer

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    I needed a reasonably priced set with enough features to be able to work with it for a while... so I chose this one. Overall, the sound quality is good, but I do miss the option of dampening a cymbal after a crash and a hi-hat that pickes up 16th notes. I've learned to play around those limitations. Two of my three cymbals have developed a rattle or buzz that is annyoing. Audiences can not hear it once you are amped, but it drives me a little nuts. I'm having to tighten the screws on the trigger regularly. For the money, I'm satisfied and I'd buy it again.

    Nice Kit

    By metalfins

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    Nice kit especially for the price. The bass drum "hole" isnt a hole its more of a dent. I've had the set for about a year and I've never had problems with it regardless of how hard I hit it(and I play metal) The cymbals wont respond after 1/16 and the sounds aren't too realistic but a MIDI connection with fruity loops should fix that. Overall I would recommend this set as a practice kit but dont play it at a gig unless you plan on getting tomatoes thrown at you.

    Great Set For The Price

    By Ace2003-KXxGT

    from Cumming, Ga

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    I purchased this set because I needed an inexpensive digital set for my studio. Upon reading the manual I discovered how to get multiple cymbol/hi hat/drum/precussion sounds. Our church recently purchased a Yamaha in the same price range as this one and unlike the SD7K the Yamaha DTX Explorer did not come with any dual zone pads. The only thing is that the MIDI is a little tricky to figure out. You have to program the MIDI recording software to channel 10 and turn off the local sound processor in the module. The really cool part is you can use the internal drum kits and customize and save up to at least 30 different kits not to mention the first 20 that are preprogramed by simmons. Over all if you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to accoustic drums and want a really good kit I would recommend the Simmons SD7K.

    I you have to go electric, this is a good buy.

    By TLyvers

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    I bought this set because I needed something that I could quickly pack/set up at our church. For that purpose, it works very well. However, this hardly compares to an acoustic set. The crash cymbal only has one sound. The ride has two sounds, but it's almost impossible to tell how to make the drum set choose between the two. The hi-hat does not sound very realistic at all (despite the three different hi-hat sounds). The hi-hat does not pick up anything faster than normal 8th notes very well at all. It's nice to have multiple settings for the overall kit, but only a handful are useful. All in all, this kit is a good value if you absolutely need an electronic set, but it's still nothing compared to an acoustic set or a high-end electronic.

    Good Kit

    By Jennifer

    from Dallas, TX

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    Here is the low down.I got this set for recording and practice. I was very surprised at the response of the pads.I like the custom kits as I use the right rack to and made it a ride and the 2 cymbals both crashes. I played Roland Yamaha alesis and other kits. If you can not afford the Roland then buy this one. The velocity cure is great for getting the HH to sound louder.I liked panning the drums and it Has a very good sound You can hook up a double pedal.

    good for beginners

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    I many play guitar and bass. I wanted a drum set around the house and bought this set. I'm learning to play drums for the first time. I like the variety of sounds, 808, electric ect. I let others play it and everyone gets excited to play it. Playing drums with head phones are very cool. I'm not a drummer but its helping me become one.

    Impressive for the money

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    I've owned this set for almost a year now and have had a lot of luck with it. I use it for practice and recently did some recording with it. If you find all the right sounds you like for the snare, hi hat, ext., and you save them to make your own personal setting you can get a pretty decent sound. The pads are very responsive. It does a good job with my double pedal. The hi hat doesn't pick up sixteenth notes very well, but honestly I didn't expect it to. You can't mute the cymbal which gets annoying. But other than that, it's a great value and a pretty solid electronic kit.

    not bad at all

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    while this drum set is not the flagship of any brand, it certainly is a very usable and enjoyable kit. I went to a friends house and played with it for a while, and I liked it. true, I cant comment on the durability, as my experience was limited; but the user friendly brain was exactly that. I am no computer genius, but within 2 minutes i had figured out how to adjust, tune and save a user kit. the pads themselves were nothing special, but nothing to laugh at either. one thing i did not care for was sounds available; while they were certainly decent and usable on stage, probably half of them i would never use to record. but thats alright, because this set fulfills its purpose; to be a cheap, user friendly and fun kit to play with.

    not a good buy

    By rosslerkid

    from ohio

    Comments about Simmons SD7K Electronic Drum Set:

    this set is ok for the money,if your a starter and your not that accurate, your gonna hit the rims more than you hit the pads, it gets pretty annoying. Also i find myself constantly hitting the caseing for the screws that hold the cymbals in place. Other than that, i have used this for a minor recording and it does sound decent, you just have to be verry accutate. I guess for a short time its ok but i would plan on replaceing parts. I wouldnt buy this set.
